WHAT IS ADULTERY?
Mark 10:11-12 JESUS SAID, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth ADULTERY against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth ADULTERY.
Luke 16:18 JESUS said, Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth ADULTERY: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth ADULTERY.
Romans 7:2-3 PAUL said, For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an ADULTERESS: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no ADULTERESS, though she be married to another man.
ADULTERY DEFILES MAN
Matthew 15:19-20 JESUS said, For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, ADULTERIES, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man:
Mark 7:20-23 JESUS said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, ADULTERIES, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES LOST
Romans 13:9 PAUL said, Thou shalt not commit ADULTERY . . .1 Corinthians 6:9-10 PAUL said, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor ADULTERERS, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 PAUL said, Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; ADULTERY, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
