Teaching about Adultery, and how to abstain from it

God want his people to keep the sexual side of their nature untainted from sin. Thus the Bible warns against such sexual sin as Adultery. In (leviticus 20:10), ” if a man commits adultery with his neighbour wife, both the man and the woman who have commited adultery must be put to death”. Incest sex with animal, prostitution,  homosexuality, fornication and sexual immoral behaviour, e.g  (masturbation), although masturbation was not mentioned in the bible. But it falls under sexual immorality,  with even filthy talks and obscenity.  When you keep practicing  all these serious sin, it exclude one from the kingdom of God. But we all know that God is a merciful God and He does save and sanctify repentant people, who know they are guilty of such act. It is not only a sinful act that God prohibits, He also prohibit lust and sexual impure thoughts

Just lik the saying ” When you are given a step, you take a mile”. So that is the flesh for you.

So for a faithful marraige and to avoid Adultery, know where you go and what you do.

*dont give smiley face to men/women either on the street or at your working place. I did not say you should frown your should, reduce how you give attention to the opposite sex.

d. Your thought life matters alot.

Thinking is powerful. I hope you know that thought lead to action, and if you dont have self control one will lose guard. Let be truthful and keep it real. Men think about sex alot. Its not their fault, that was the way God designed them. That is just the way they are. And that is a very good thing because that is God’s instruction on that path. God built the wiring, but we are responsible for the electricity ( self control). Because you must be able to control the on and off button when it comes to sexual thought to avoid adultery. “Submit yourself,  therefore to God. Resist the Devil and he will flee away from you. (James 4 vrs 7)

e. Make love often with your spouse

Yes! Make love often and at all time you find yourself in the action. God loves it  because it takes your mind off Adultery or sexually immoral act. Hod has made everything neccessary for a nice and wonderful marraige life. Satisfy your man and woman do not deny your husband sex. With all these i guarantee you an Adultery free marraige.
