“Fire Woman” is a rock song by the British rock band The Cult, written by singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy. It was the first single released from their fourth studio album Sonic Temple, and was subsequently featured on all of The Cult’s compilation/greatest hits albums, as well as being a steady fixture of the band’s live performances. It peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number one on New Zealand’s Recorded Music NZ (then RIANZ) chart and number 15 on the UK Singles Chart. Astbury claims the eponymous “Fire Woman” is a universal symbol, along the lines of a primary element. – Source : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Woman
I believe the song describes a deadly woman … the same deadly woman that God describes in great detail in the book of Proverbs … she is “the forbidden woman” … the adulteress, the seductress, the mistress, the prostitute, the women you secretly view and lust after on your computer or smartphone, the woman you sexually long for who is not your wife!
That woman is the Fire Woman!
The Fire Woman is sexual sin!
Many strong and honorable men have danced with her and enjoyed their fleeting moment of sexual pleasure, but in the end … she burned down everything good and honorable in their life. That’s what she does. That’s what she’s highly skilled at.
She thrills … and then she kills! She fascinates … and then she assassinates!
It happened not only in biblical times, but it continues to happen today. Just look at these staggering statistics …
- 97% of Christian men acknowledge they have looked at porn.
- 64% of Christian men view porn at least once per month.
- 37% of Christian men view porn several times a week.
