14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife….
-Exodus 20:14-17a, KJV
Apparently, a pastor taking adultery seriously is controversial!
What has this world come to that a pastor insisting on obedience to God via keeping the Ten Commandments is considered putting out radical views?!
This has not always been the case. In Jesus’ day, they clearly assumed any good Rabbi would expect the big Ten to be kept (see Luke 18:18ff).
I am astounded and saddened by the need for this blog among Bible-believing Christians.
We have drifted so far from the true faith that pop-psychology with its lie that both parties contributed to infidelity is more believed than the Scripture’s consistent teaching that the one choosing adultery is the one fully responsible for breaking that particular Ten Commandment (not to mention others along the way)!
This is madness.
And the fact that it goes all the way up to the top of church leadership structures is doubly maddening!
If you are a faithful spouse, you cannot count on any given Christian pastor to consider adultery the problem. You cannot count on them taking the sin of cheating seriously.
That is not to say all pastors ignore the Ten Commandments or are completely sold out to pagan, pop-psychology on matters of infidelity. Some do take adultery seriously.
But the fact that this blog is frequented by literally tens of thousands of individuals around the globe tells me that not enough pastors take that position (or–possibly–feel equipped to do so).
The hard-line of insisting on obedience to the Ten Commandments and repentance if they are broken is not the status quo in Christian circles.
