Only Two things are like “a double-edged sword”

When we read the Bible, we find only two things expressed as “a double-edged sword.”

Do you know those two things? Here they are:

  1. The Word of God: “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD, – – -” (Hebrews 4:12a)


  1. An adulteress (a woman who commits adultery): “- – – she (an adulteress) is bitter as gall, sharp as a DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD.” (Proverbs 5:4)

Both these double-edge swords have tremendous power; the first one has power to bring life and beauty out of ashes while the latter one has power to bring death and destruction into our beautiful life.

That is why the Bible says, “Flee from sexual immorality.” (1 Corinthians 6:18a) ///
