JESUS on adultery

Matthew 5:28

King James Version

28 But I say unto you, 

That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her 

hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

This is not hard to understand.

Pretty self-explanatory, too.

That means most of us have committed adultery in our hearts, just by  looking at a woman, in lust.

Our eyes cause us to sin.

Luke 11:34-36

King James Version

34 The light of the body is the eye: 

therefore when thine eye is single, 

thy whole body also is full of light; 

but when thine eye is evil, 

thy body also is full of darkness.

35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee 

be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, 

having no part dark, 

the whole shall be full of light, 

as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Our hearts cause us to sin.

Jeremiah 17:9

King James Version

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, 

and desperately wicked: 

who can know it?

The enemy knows women are man's downfall.

Or, at least, he makes sure that happens all the time.

Observe the conversation among GOD, Adam, and Eve, after the temptation:

Genesis 3:11-13

King James Version

11 And he said, 

Who told thee that thou wast naked? 

Hast thou eaten of the tree, 

whereof I commanded thee 

that thou shouldest not eat?

12 And the man said, 

The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, 

she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, 

What is this that thou hast done? 

And the woman said, 

The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Satan also corrupted our race through his wicked angels.

The enemy angels lusted first.

Genesis 6:1-2

King James Version

6 And it came to pass, 

when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, 

and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men 

that they were fair; 

and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:4-6

King James Version

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; 

and also after that, 

when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, 

and they bare children to them, 

the same became mighty men which were of old, 

men of renown.

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man 

was great in the earth, 

and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart 

was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord 

that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.

What's to stop CHRIST's enemey from further corrupting, and destroying man?

Wild and willful women are probably his greatest tool.

2 Timothy 3:6-7

King James Version

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.

There is a simple solution:

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

But you can only "Walk in the Spirit", if you belong to SPIRIT.

How to belong to SPIRIT?

Become born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.
