Adultry Essay, Research Paper
Adultery is stated 69 times in the bible. It is
also the seventh commandment. “Thou shalt not commit
adultery”. In every case stated in the bible, the answer
is clear: Do not commit adultery. It is a very
powerful thing that disconnects people in a relationship,
either married or not. The dictionary definition of
adultery is “voluntary sexual intercourse of a married
man with a women other than his wife or of a married
women with a man other than her husband”.
In this particular dictionary it speaks about
definitely being married, but in the bible, it often did
not. In a book called “Sexual Abstinence”, by
Barbara Moe, it also mentioned the theme adultery.
It stated that although it is not confirmed because you
aren’t married, you can still commit adultery as a
teenager. It also said that “adultery” is too much of a

invented sex. He designed the hormones that trigger
your desires. He designed every nerve ending that
magnifies pleasure. Sex isn’t wrong. Sex is good. A
gift from God, who loves you. Now only if you
would use it right”. Sex is always made out to be a
bad thing. In our culture it is perfectly ok. Although
God says to you in your conscience “Are you sure
you want to do this?!” He states is it so much in the
bible, if only people would look.
Sex should be used with the right person, in the
right place, at the right time (in the right uniform hehe).
Not with multiple people, or just because you feel like
it. You are giving away a precious gift God himself
has given you.
If you ever think about cheating or “Committing
adultery”, think of the other person involved in the
situation. There is two parts to every situation , no
matter what kinda it is. But, it is a very tough thing.
To be the person doing it, and wondering if you’ll get
caught. But most of all it is tough for the person who
gets cheated on… then the person starts questioning
them self. A lot of psychiatric problems happen after
these kinds of situations. And, it all could’ve stopped
if you just picked up one solitary book, and read for a
