the term may be new, but the concept is ancient:

  Proverbs 5:1-13 KJVR
(1) My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
(2) That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
(3) For the lips of a strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
(4) But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
(5) Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
(6) Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are movable, that thou canst not know them.
(7) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
(8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
(9) Lest thou give thine honor unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
(10) Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labors be in the house of a stranger;
(11) And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
(12) And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
(13) And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!


Proverbs 2:10-19 KJVR
(10) When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
(11) Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
(12) To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
(13) Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
(14) Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;
(15) Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
(16) To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
(17) Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
(18) For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
(19) None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

  Proverbs 6:20-35 KJVR
(20) My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
(21) Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
(22) When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
(23) For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
(24) To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
(25) Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
(26) For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
(27) Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
(28) Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
(29) So he that goeth in to his neighbor's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
(30) Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
(31) But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
(32) But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
(33) A wound and dishonor shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
(34) For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
(35) He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

  Proverbs 7:1-27 KJVR
(1) My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
(2) Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
(3) Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
(4) Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
(5) That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
(6) For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
(7) And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
(8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
(9) In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
(10) And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtle of heart.
(11) (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
(12) Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
(13) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
(14) I have peace offerings with me; this day have I paid my vows.
(15) Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
(16) I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
(17) I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
(18) Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
(19) For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
(20) He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
(21) With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
(22) He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
(23) Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
(24) Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
(25) Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
(26) For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
(27) Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.


I remember an experience that Jesse Duplantis used in a sermon once - when he tells this it is hilarious.  He was on a commercial flight, and a good-looking woman sat down beside him.  they talked for a few minutes, and then she laid her hand on his and said "I know that we could make beautiful music together - let's have dinner together tonight".  Jesse said he just smiled, and said as loud as he could, "WHORE OF BABYLON!  WHORE OF BABYLON!".  He heard a man behind him ask "where is Babylon?".  The woman got up and ran to the back of the plane.  Jesse's moral to the story was "You can't tolerate sin; you have to embarrass it - if you don't, it will embarrass you!"

Joh 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

I think it is a little harsh to suggest that an older woman expressing interest in a younger man is an adulterous, a whore, or otherwise sinning in anyway.

I also think that If the Jesse Duplantis story is true that he failed big time by not showing that woman any love or compassion, especially when she didn't do anything wrong. She was flirting. That isn't a sin. If he wasmt receptive then he could have said so assertively withour embarassing her. He didn't embarass sin. He embarassed a person.

I agree Supp.  People marry at all different ages.

maybe the difference here lies in what 'hit on' means.  in my experience, when someone 'hits on' another person, the primary objective is to have a sexual encounter as soon as possible for the single purpose of personal (selfish) satisfaction.  when i think about a cougar, i think about a solitary, calculating, highly dangerous predator that kills and eats it's neighbors.

i see no problem with two people of the opposite sex getting married, who have been led together by God  - same age or not.   

here's what i get when i google "define: flirt":

"Definitions of flirt on the Web:
 

       
  • chat up: talk or behave amorously, without serious intentions; "The guys always try to chat up the new secretaries"; "My husband never flirts with other women"

  •    
  • coquette: a seductive woman who uses her sex appeal to exploit men

  •    
  • dally: behave carelessly or indifferently; "Play about with a young girl's affection"

  •    
  • playful behavior intended to arouse sexual interest"


I don't think the woman on the plane wanted to play musical instruments with Jesse later on that evening; she was yielded to the devil at that moment and Jesse resisted; yes he could have probably found a more politically correct method...but please don't judge the man based on this, i may not remember it correctly to begin with :)

love and compassion don't respect feelings.  when Jesus looked at Peter and said "Get thee behind me, satan...", He wasn't acting outside of love and compassion toward Peter.  When He said to the father of the lunatic son "if thou canst believe...", He could have said it in a way that was less embarrassing. 

When someone is in unbelief out of ignorance, mercy is appropriate; but when someone is in unbelief out of arrogance - knowing about God's direction and ignoring it to satisfy the flesh - judgment is appropriate (i don't mean ultimate judgment as in going straight to hell, but resorting to the Law to humble - embarrass -  the arrogant and drive them to mercy).  old or young, same age or different, when someone who might be called a 'cougar' 'hits on' someone else (even a crazy preacher) - the strong rebuke of the Law is appropriate. 


Joh 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Lower is 24 upper is 54. Ok... ???

A denomination said the man should not be more than 10 years older and the woman not more than 5.

I wonder what Jesus' reaction was to the women who most likely 'hit' on him?  I would imagine he focused on the why they did, and not rebuking them.


For whatever reason, this reminds me of a friend who received an obscene phone call one day.  The man breathed heavy and began saying very suggestive pornographic things.  Instead of being disgusted and hanging up, she felt compassion for this man who was obviously oppressed with an unclean spirit.  She began speaking life into him and telling him how much his Father God loved him.  He became quiet and listened.  Before she hung up, she said, "I'll be praying for you."  He softly said, "Thank you."


I respect Jesse and have enjoyed his stories so I don't want to address what he said.  I just think of Jesus and how he reacted when faced with the adulterous woman.  I have no doubt she remembered his kindness every day of her life.

the woman caught in the act of adultry was not hitting on Jesus when she was brought before Him, she was seeking mercy.

what about Peter?  Jesus said that He would be crucified, and Peter rebuked Him - what was Jesus' response?
