Laws of God – 7 – You Shall Not Commit Adultery

Jesus said that whoever looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Therefore all have broken this law of God and stand in need of forgiveness through Christ. God judges our thoughts as well as our actions. We were made male and female to reflect the glory of God, yet man perverts the beauty of God in marriage into something selfish and fleshly. Christ is the great example of love – selflessly loving his bride in laying down his life.

The main bible verses are Exodus 20:14 and Matthew 5:28.

“You shall not commit adultery.”

“But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
