As a Christian, I believe what the Bible says and I especially take what the Ten Commandments say very seriously.

One of those commandments is “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.” As of late I have either witnessed or been made aware of numerous extramarital affairs going on here in Tipton County, and that includes many of our churches.

There is nothing more morally deplorable or Godless than an affair and no affair can be justified. Affairs usually start emotional and then become physical. Pornography is also adulterous.

It seems like every day my wife or I hear of a marriage ending or see people we know having affairs. Even worse is the number of people who claim to be Christians yet justify these actions.

The Bible is clear on this, and let me also state that even if you are going through a divorce, you are still legally married until a judge rules on it, which means if you are seeing someone else you are committing adultery.

If you are a Christian and you justify this behavior, either in your own life or in others, all I will say is read your Bible.
