But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul – Proverbs 6:32

Some people will argue that it is all right to break God’s law against sexual sin if nobody gets hurt. In truth, somebody always gets hurt. Spouses are devastated, children are scarred, the partner themselves, even if they escape disease and unwanted pregnancy, will lose their ability to fulfill commitments, to feel sexual desire. To trust, and to be entirely open with another person. God’s laws are arbitrary. They don’t forbid good, clean fun, rather, they warn us against destroying ourselves through unwise actions or running ahead of God’s plans for our life. Society doesn’t forbid adultery, they make it sound less hurtful, and harmful by referring to it as an affair. It doesn’t matter if one is a believer or a non-believer, God’s word will never return to Him void, and what He doesn’t condone, He doesn’t bless. The consequences of rejecting God’s law will be for the unbeliever as well as the believer. Just because one doesn’t believe in God, doesn’t make Him non-existence and His word void. Many marriages have ended up in divorce court because of adultery. Adultery is just like the forbidden fruit God instructed Adam and Eve not to eat from if they did they would die. They didn’t die physically, but they died spiritually. If one died in the midst of committing adultery when they awake, they will be in hell (Behold, I will cast her into a bed {sickbed} and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except {unless} they repent of their deeds – Revelation 2:22).

Satan and society condone adultery, but God is against it, and the persons who commit these acts will fall into the hands of an angry God. According to the word of God, women who commit sexual gratification without being married is a harlot or whoremonger. Why wake up in hell for a three-minute thrill that will end up in eternal torment? Granted it has been times women got caught up with men that were married and they were unaware of it, but after they found out, many stayed in the relationship, taking what didn’t belong to them.

Marriage was ordained by God in the Garden of Eden, marriage is sacred with God and He doesn’t want anyone messing with it. God’s ideal plan for marriage is one man for one woman for one lifetime. Marriage is so important in the mind of God that it was the first of three divine institutions and was patterned to illustrate Christ’s love for the church. As women, we would consider ourselves, how would we feel if we were married and find out our husband is being unfaithful. A man can’t cheat on his wife unless the other woman allows it.

Adultery not only hurts the wife but in reality, the woman who’s committing adultery will be hurt because most men who cheat don’t leave their wife and marry the woman they were cheating with. Say, if the man does leave his wife and marries the woman he was cheating with, both the woman and man will have reserved thoughts about the marriage commitment as well as being judged by God for the separation of the original marriage (Yet ye say, wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant – Malachi 2:14).

Marriage is a covenant, a contract between a husband and wife that shouldn’t be breached. Adultery brings physical hurt, mental hurt, emotional hurt, and spiritual death. Fleshly desires to bring disasters to the soul of the individual. Having something that belongs to someone else only lasts for a short time, then the consequences that come with it, isn’t worth it. Not only is the soul of the man destroyed, but the woman whose allowing the adultery soul is being destroyed as well.

The majority of the time, people who commit adultery can’t be committed, if they aren’t committed to their wife, why would a woman think, he would be committed to her? And, most men think if the woman is committing adultery with him, she will cheat on him as well if they were married. For those who are committing adultery, you deserve much more than what you’re settling for. You deserve someone who will truly love you and will be committed to you. You can’t receive the blessings of God when you’re going against His will for your life, as well as destroying a marriage that is sacred because it is God who ordained marriage.

Don’t settle for less when God can give you the best when you do it God’s way. When you seek to please God, He will give you, your heart’s desire and it will not be with regrets or sorrows!
