What do I love more than I love Christ? Regardless of what He says and how He warns, what love am I unwilling to forsake? It is a recipe for disaster, not only for me but those around me and it could have ramifications for years.
This is a consistent principle that God speaks to us repeatedly: if you have an affection for something God has forbidden, it will gradually turn your heart to the god behind that affection. You will not be a man after God's own heart like David was, but a man whose heart is turned away after other gods, like Solomon.
