Adultery And Fornication: One Thing That Makes People Do It.

We are in a world where people believe that they know what is right and wrong. Many are fast becoming opinionated and there’s nothing no one could say that can negate their opinion. And if you do, you’ll be termed being judgmental.
.
Adultery and fornication is a common virus that has infected lots of people. Teenagers are fornicating, they call it fun; married people are having sexual relationship outside their marriage and they find justification for their escapades.
.
The fact that the society we live in justifies fornication and adultery to be right doesn’t makes it so. How I wish people understood what’s at stake than to venture into the destructive pleasure it offers.
.
Do you know that one thing that makes people fornicate or commit adultery is their lack of understanding?
.
Understanding to people is relative. Some people only understand the physical nature of things while some comprehends both the physical and spiritual implications of a thing.
.
If the understanding you have about fornication or adultery is only about the ‘fun’ you enjoy without knowing what’s at stake, you lack understanding.
.
It’s not understanding when you’re only bothered about the pleasure in sexual sin. And it doesn’t even matter if you have a PhD, go to church oftentimes or you’re a worker in there, you’re educated, connected with informed people or you’re so exposed or vast in knowledge. All of that doesn’t matter.
.
See what the scripture says…
.
“But whoso commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding: and he that does it destroys his own soul. A wound and dishonor shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away” – Proverbs 6:32-33 (NKJV)
.
“But if you go to bed with another man’s wife, you’ll destroy yourself by your own stupidity. You will be beaten and forever disgraced” – Proverbs 6:32-33 (CEV).
.
The two translations shows the outcome of what happens to those who go to bed with another man’s wife. The fact that she’s not your wife makes her another man’s. And she’s not yours if you’re not married to her. He’s also not your husband if you give him your body before and outside marriage.
.
It is lack of understanding of defiling the marriage bed that makes people exposed to the consequences it brings. A wise man doesn’t willingly stick his finger into fire because he knows the consequence of doing it.
.
Calling fornication or adultery ‘fun’, ‘pleasure’ or ‘normal thing’ only shows the lack of sense. And common sense isn’t godly wisdom if it violates godly values.
.
It is dangerous to be ignorant because ignorance is expensive. This is why you have to get wisdom and understanding in all your endeavors.
.
What’s ‘understanding’ when you’re exposed to soul ties, abortion, unprepared motherhood, spiritually transmitted disease, sexually transmitted diseases, condemnation, guilt, unwanted pregnancy, shame and the likes?
.
It’s not understanding when you ignore both the physical and spiritual implication of premarital and extramarital sex.
.
Many have destroyed their lives due to lack of understanding with the abuse of sex. Single ladies are ‘going out’ with married men, vice versa while teenagers and younger adults are indulging in sexual immoralities and perversion.
.
Any understanding you have that doesn’t acknowledge the fear of God will end up destroying you (Rom. 1:28). Don’t be among those whom would exclude God out of their lives because of their personal belief or opinions.
.
If you relegate God out of your life and belief, you’ll not only be exposed to daring consequences in life but you would also incur His wrath.
.
You can’t be in the world and have spiritual understanding. You can’t be religious and have what it takes to understand the consequences of sexual sins unless you have a personal relationship with God through Christ.
.
Your understanding of God and His reverence would make you know that your body is God’s temple and not a sex object or a temple for immoral activities. You don’t own yourself but God who created you did. No one blames you on how you use your phone but you’re held accountable for the abuse of your body.
.
Get understanding in all thine getting. Any knowledge you have that doesn’t acknowledge God and His reverence would destroy your life while you think it’s the ‘norm’. Buy godly wisdom for it is light to your path and life to your soul!
