Truth About Marriage – 102
Adultery is not a marital problem but a spiritual problem.
Because of the devastating impact that adultery has on marriage, many of us are tempted to think that adultery is a marital problem, but it is not, it is a spiritual problem that has a negative impact on marriage.
We need to understand that it was God who said “Thou shall not commit adultery”, it was not the spouse, the pastor, the church or the family. When people decide to commit adultery they are lifting a middle finger to God. They are saying to God we don’t take instructions from you, we don’t obey you, we obey our feelings, our boyfriends, our girlfriends or the demons that are controlling us.
If your spouse is committing adultery, it is not about you, it is their defiance of God. And if they can defy God (without whom they can’t exist), who are you? Therefore, stop blaming yourself, it is not because you are not attractive, it is not because you are fat or skinny, it is not because you are not good in bed, it is not because you don’t earn enough money. It is because someone is possessed by the demons of infidelity, and don’t join them to prove that you too can also be possessed by the same demons. Since this is not about you, but about God, know this: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” Galatians 6:7
