    No part of my post included a "modern definition" adultery. You and I are speaking about the same time frame:

    As I demonstrated, the biblical prohibition on adultery applied to both men and women, married and un married. I have conclusively proven this.

    The 6 passages I've quoted prove this article to be factually incorrect.

    Laws against adultery are left over from first century AD. Since most adultery in this country is done by those who claim to be Christian, let it go. Nothing is gonna change.

    Big difference now is, that it is harder to hide this in a society of instant communication. Probably the same percentage of people committing adultery has not changed in the last 3000 years.

    Actually, when I did some research on the issue, some states in the US have laws against adultery.

    Laws that will not be enforced.

    Sure, old laws that are not enforced anymore. They are however not there for no reason..

    I am actually deeply shocked by this thread and the wide and enormous support in favor of adultery.


    I have ****ed around quite a bit, but all I want to now is to find 1 smart women that I will always be with, who will never cheat on me. But in todays world thats just unrealistic, unless I find some Jewish or very strictly raised Christian girl, or perhaps a Muslim girl(but those arent allowed to marry non-Muslim men, and I would never become Muslim, so it couldnt happen unless she was flexible with her faith, and that would mean she was most likely flexible on adultery as well, and other moral laws).

    Sure they are. They are archaic. If they were enforced, outrage and chaos would ensue. In some states, it is illegal to have sex in any position other than the missionary position.

    Leviticus 20:10


    Here we see that men are punished for committing adultery, therefore the prohibition on adultery did not apply only to women.

    Other examples include:

    Proverbs 6:32


    Jeremiah 29:23


    This one is very strong in my mind day to day:

    Matthew 5:28


    According to Jesus in this passage, a man commits adultery when he lusts after a woman just by looking at her. Jesus further teaches that men should not do this.

    Matthew 5:32


    In this example, if you marry a woman who was not divorced because her husband died or committed adultery, you, the new husband, are committing adultery with your new wife.

    ***
    I hope this clarifies the issue.
    How do any of these contradict Grannies claim that men could fornicate with unmarried woman without being deemed an adulterer?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
