“God provided for all sexual enjoyment to be fulfilled in marriage as we love our spouses in this good design that he ordained. Our love is not meant for strangers, in the mind, or at the local motel. And this applies to every form of sexual sin that is contrary to God’s will. By God’s grace, the desires of our hearts must be sanctified to love the spouse God has given to us.”
(Chris Gordon – Beautiful Christian Life) Adultery will destroy your life. And, it will destroy a lot of other people’s lives too. This is the testimony of countless people who have testified to its destructive power and how it utterly ruined them. As the statistics go, around 25 percent of men and 15 percent of women will commit adultery in the course of their marriage….
But this fails to take into account the many other forms of sexual immorality that constitute adultery, especially when considering Jesus’ words that even if a man looks at a woman with lustful intent, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
The fact is that many marriages are crippled with the destructive sin of adultery. It has destroyed homes, livelihoods, causing incalculable damage to children. But why are people willing to throw away everything for a moment of pleasure? And what do the Scriptures say about why people fall into its destructive path? This is what this article explores as we seek for the better solution of love in marriage as God intended between a man and a woman.
