Dear Brothers and Sisters In Christ, Today we will see what the Bible says about Fornication And Adultery?. Word of God always warns us against fornication or adultery.
Meaning OF Fornication And Adultery – Fornication is committing physical relationship of an unmarried person outside the marital relationship, whereas adultery is committing physical relationship of a married person with another person outside the marriage bond.
There are several times, God has commanded us to stay away from this fornication or adultery. When God gave 10 commands to Moses, one commandment was: You shall not commit Fornication. But nowadays people don’t care about this kind of relationship between boys and girls before marriage, they don’t know how much sin they are committing against God.
If we look at the book of Leviticus in the Old Testament, we will see that God considered this adultery to be a heinous crime and that it would result in the death penalty.
But now the death of Jesus Christ has saved us from this law but sin is still sin. Let’s take a look at some of the Verses in the Bible that will help us to understand this adultery more clearly and keep ourselves away from such a horrible act.
