Outline

 

1. Defined

2. Expressly Forbidden

3. The Penalty

4. Christ's Treatment of an Instance

5. Paul's Urgent Injunction

 

1. Defined

 

Mat. 5.28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

 

Mat 5:32 But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman also commits adultery.

 

2. Expressly Forbidden

 

Ex.20.14 You must not commit adultery.

 

3. The Penalty

 

Ge.20.7  Now return the woman to her husband, and he will pray for you, for he is a prophet. Then you will live. But if you don’t return her to him, you can be sure that you and all your people will die.

 

Ex.22.16,17  If a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged to anyone and has sex with her, he must pay the customary bride price and marry her. 17 But if her father refuses to let him marry her, the man must still pay him an amount equal to the bride price of a virgin.

 

Ga.5.19,21  When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

 

4. Christ's Treatment of an Instance

 

Jo.8.10,11  Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” 11 “No, Lord,” she said.  And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

 

 

5. Paul's Urgent Injunction

 

Eph. 5.3  Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.
