"Don't Go There!"
Have you ever been in discussion with someone and brought up a certain element or matter and the other person said, "Don't go there!"?  This let you know that he did not want you to discuss it. It would "open up a can of worms," so to speak. Maybe that matter was controversial and he did not want to enter into the controversy. Maybe inwardly it made him feel guilty and he did not really want any light shed on the matter. Maybe his mind was made up and he did not want anyone to challenge his thinking. So he told you--

"Flee also youthful lusts:but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart." (2 Timothy 2:22)
 
Wherever your natural mind would take you that is unholy, unrighteous, unclean, impure, or not pleasing to God Who is holy, be aware that your feet are inclined to go where your mind goes and
 
"Don't Go There!"
 
"Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (James4:7)
