Now Playing: Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery
Topic: Laws of God
Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14 KJV)
One of most trends today is legalizing adultery. We continue to see that this Christian nation is turning to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Most today’s news report fills with legalizing the same-sex marriage. Our president is not doing anything about this situation in our Christian nation. Our education and court systems are favored for the homosexual marriage.
What does God say about adultery? Let’s look into the biblical aspect of adultery. In Encarta Dictionary, the word adultery means “voluntary sexual relations between a married person and somebody other than his/her spouse. In Greek, it refers to idolatrous worship. There are three ways for the person could draw into the world system: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (I John 2:16). If the person would not satisfy himself with things that he has, he’d beg for more power, wealth, and fame. In fact, King Solomon tried all three things, but these things led him to more trouble in his life. Even his 1,000 wives led him to the idolatry, his relationship with God was dried off. It is sad for our nation to commit adultery and put our spiritual fire off for this nation.
We read in II Samuel 11 about how King David c omitted adultery and ended with God’s judgment upon his family and kingdom (II Samuel 12). Yet, he repented his sins. That is why God used him to lead to the lineage of Messiah, Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:1-17).
We have two choices: put our spiritual fire back on or off. As our nation would keep legalizing sins, we are kept walking toward to the devil’s trap. We need to have pro-family back in this nation, because this is what God wanted for us.
