ENDS WITH TRAGIC
take a look at one of God's rules to see if He gives them to
us for our own good. One of God's commandments is "Thou shalt
not commit adultery" (Exodus 20:14). Adultery is
when a person is unfaithful in one's marriage.What could possibly
happen to a person's family that has disobeyed this commandment?
Let's take a look:
is a married business man. He is the father of an adorable five
year old son and another baby on the way.
Mike begins laying
eyes on Tammy, an attractive blonde that has just started as
his secretary. Mike does care for His wife and is very excited
about his unborn baby, but he just can't seem to take his eyes
off of Tammy. He begins to wonder what it would be like to be
with someone else just for one time.
knows that the Bible says not to defile the marriage bed, but
Satan keeps whispering in his ear "no one will
ever know, you have a right to do what you want".
Mike quickly gives way to his lustful feelings towards Tammy
as he listens to Satan's lies and chooses to ignore the Bible.
calls his pregnant wife and lies to her, telling her he will
be home late that night. Immediently after work Mike and Tammy
go to a nearby motel to spend the evening together. Mike does
not know Tammy has convently forgotten to tell him that
she is infected with the aids virus. Tammy believes in "moral
relativism" and believes that she has a right to do
whatever she pleases. Tammy knows she's going to die anyway,
so why can't she live the rest of her life to the fullest?
Unknowingly, Mike carried the aids virus home to his pregnant wife who gave it to the unborn child. After being diagnosed with aids, Mike's secret came out and his wife, horribly devasted, decided to separate from him. Separation and death happened in Mike and his family's life because he chose to ignore the Bible and go his own way. Not only did Mike suffer for his sin, but his innocent wife and unborn child also will suffer. His five year old son will eventually become an orphan.
was the result of Mike rejecting God's command;"Thou
shalt not commit adultery?" This one short fantasy,
which only lasted a short evening, ended up destroying Mike's
entire future. This lustful act caused death and separation to
is certainly not far-fetched. Many people have similiar situations
in their lives because they have decided to go their own way and
remain separated from God. They have not only destroyed their
own life by their disobedient mistakes but have also sadly taken
others who were innocent along their path of destruction. All
because they have decided to ignore God and follow their own enlightened
the verse is; "Then
when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when
it is finished, bringeth forth death" (James 1:15) and "For
the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23).
TO REMEMBER: "Thou shalt not commit adultery" Have you always been faithful to your spouse?
Have you ever had sex with anyone before you were married (fornication)?
Have you ever engaged in sexual fantasies or lustful thoughts
about anyone not your spouse? If so, you are an adulterer - you
have broken God's 7th commandment. (Matthew 5:27-28)
