ADULTERY - Biblical references

THE DIVINE COMMANDMENT
"You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, mind, soul and all your strength. And you shall love your neighbour as yourself." (Mark 12:30-31; Romans 13:10)

GOD IS ALWAYS TO GOVERN - NOTHING IS EVER TO BE GIVEN PLACE BEFORE HIM
He says: "Anyone who puts anyone or anything before Me is not worthy of Me." (Luke 14:26) "He has commanded His Commandments be kept most diligently." (Psalm 118:4) Note: To break His Commandment is to place the cause of its breaking, ahead of Him, thereby invoking His displeasure, which unrepented, risks eternal hellfire. (Mark 9:42-47)

BE WATCHMEN - FOR ONE ANOTHER
Ezechiel 3:17-21; 33:1-20
"Son of man...When I say, the sinful man shall surely die, and you do NOT warn him, speaking to him that he be converted from his wicked way and live: the same sinful man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at your hand." "But, if you DO give warning to the sinful man, and he be not converted from his wickedness and evil way: he shall indeed die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your own soul."

FORNICATION

Whosoever puts away their spouse and marries another, commits adultery.
And whoever marries the one put away also commits adultery."

1 Corinthians 7:10-11 (St Paul - New Testament)
