Biblical reasons why you should not encourage adultery (marital cheating)

I don’t know if this madness is due to feminism, but our society is in danger when people are giving accolades to women who get pregnant for men who are not their husbands! It’s extremely sad when you call yourself a Christian and you’re celebrating and defending such repulsive lifestyles. I have always maintained the basic principle of life: you reap what you sow.

However, as a Christian, I know that I and many other Christians around the world are saved by grace, (Ephesians 2:8-9). Had it not been for that grace, there would have been no salvation because the wages of sin is death, (Romans 6:23).

Now, it is important to note that this life we live on earth is not perfect. Everyone faces challenges and every marriage has their own unique challenges. It is also important to note that from the biblical perspective, marriage is an institution: a union between you and your spouse, (Genesis 2:24). Cheating on your spouse is adultery and there is nowhere in the Bible where we have been encouraged or advised to commit adultery. In the Old Testament times, you could be stoned to death for it, (Deuteronomy 22:22). It is also part of the Ten Commandments, ((Exodus 20:14). We are advised to flee it in the New Testament, (1 Corinthians 6:18). So, you can’t defend adultery before God.

The world is becoming more and more liberal and carnal but the Christian is advised not to conform to the lifestyle of the world but to be transformed by the word of God instead, (Romans 12:1-2).

Finally, the Bible doesn’t endorse divorce. In fact, God hates it, (Malachi 2:15-16). But, there are grounds for separation which Jesus talked about such as adultery, (Matthew 19:9). And there are grounds for remarriage – the Christian can’t divorce and go and marry like that, (1 Corinthians 7). We are governed by rules and regulations. I will find time to talk about grounds for separation and remarriage. So, instead of staying in that abusive marriage and getting murdered, seek separation. You can’t blame anyone for your sin of adultery. If you have, seek forgiveness from your spouse and make peace. May the Holy Spirit help you in whatever situation you find yourself!

Stay blessed.
