One female Chinese journalist said: "I express my freedom through sex . . . It's my life and I can do what I want." Human beings get themselves into big trouble by unlawfully doing whatever they wish, regardless of the unrealized horrendous consequences that inevitably follow sooner or later (see Proverbs 14:12 Proverbs 14:12There is a way which seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
American King James Version×
; 16:25).
