The 10 Commandments
Do Not Commit Adultery
What is Adultery? Adultery is strictly defined as: sexual relations between a married man and a woman who is not his wife, or between a married woman and a man who is not her husband.
4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.
32 But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
3 It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God6 and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before.7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
How can we truly know who God is and who we are if there was no law given from God to define morality. The 10 Commandments give us a timeless framework by which we can know the holiness of God and to know our need for his help in living to please him.
