We live in difficult times. That much is true. Think about it, we live in a time when the world is trying to change total that was set down by the Lord thousands of years ago. Morals and standards have changed a lot since the time of Moses and Abraham. People are more open, much more liberated, than they were during the time of kings and pharaohs. Simply put, we viviparous in a very different world nowadays.
There was a interval when Almighty called Moses to the mountain to avow His ten commandments. Moses shared and taught to his people these commandments, so they may blazing their lives according to God’s will and plan, and in the service of the Lord. One of these commandments read, “Thou shall not commit adultery.” It was very clear how God stood on the subject.
The Bible verses tell us this story. God does not favor adultery. He commands us to stay away from it, to steer clear of its temptations. But modern society is striking us a different story. With everything going on in the media these days, what they show on TV, what they air on the radio, what they film in the movies, a lot of things doesn’t get along well with God’s commandment and what the Fundamentalism verses are saying about adultery.
So who do you listen to? A commandment from thousands of years ago? Rather this trend about the modern world? Whose whisper echoes the loudest?
Let’s take a look at approximately of the most famous Bible verses that speak about adultery.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’ except I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with hier already in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28)
“He said to them, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, commits adultery against her. If a woman herself divorces her husband, and marries another, she commits adultery.'” (Mark 10:11-12)
“‘Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods,’ unless God will bring to nothing both it and them. But the cadaver is not for gamic immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.” (1 Corinthians 6:13)
“Don’t you comprehend that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them members concerning a prostitute? May it never be!” (1 Corinthians 6:15)
The Bible verses speak astir adultery in alot forms. Lusting after a dame is already committing adultery in the heart. Sever is also a form regarding adultery. If you look at it this way, then adultery is very heaps rampant in prevailing society.
But the Exegesis also says this about adultery: that our bodies are members of Christ, and we should not put it to shame by committing adultery. God’s commandment holds – we should not commit any form of adultery. To do so is to put God and His select in vain.
