COMMANDMENT #6/10 - "YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY"

You shall not commit adultery (Exodus 20:14)
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25)

God's ways and reasoning are not man's. He has said so, and we know so. God is pure, righteous, Holy, just. Man is evil, perverted, corrupt, selfish prideful. God is God. We ain't! 

There are two kinds of Adultery, and while God gave this original commandment in Exodus, He illustrates what He means and how man betrays Him, fully throughout the Old Testament and all the way to the end. The two kinds of adultery are physical and spiritual. The physical part is obvious. (See program below from my WLCF TV 45 Bible Teaching Show PLUMBLINE which is also shown every Friday on Comcast Access Channel 4 in Springfield, Il at 3am, 11am and 8pm CDT). Married people are supposed to be faithful to each other sexually and in their thoughts, according to the marriage vows in the eyes of God.

But the spiritual part is just as important. All through the Old Testament we see Israel prostituting themselves before pagan foreign gods. God has to send first Moses, then the Judges and finally the great prophets like Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Hosea among the many to speak against this vile evil. Modern Christianity is doing the same thing as carnal Christians (who are not disciples of Christ at all) follow the ways of the world in thought, word, deed, entertainment, politics and more.

Today's program, recorded in the Fall of 2012, examines this Sixth Commandment and the relevance of submitting and obeying His just command:
