How would you judge the lawfulness or unlawfulness of 'pleasure?' Use this rule: Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sight of God, takes from you your thirst for spiritual things or increases the authority of your body over your mind, then that thing to you is evil. By this test you may detect evil no matter how subtly or how plausibly temptation may be presented to you.
Sadly, rather than winding upward, some people go on a steep decline, a downward spiral, because here's what happens: Sin leads to guilt, guilt leads to shame, and ultimately shame leads to condemnation. Condemnation leads to death. If a building is condemned, that means it's unfit for use. It's disqualified. It's only good for being pulled down.
