What Bible Said about Men Having Affair With Married Women

God who made man and woman knows there will be a need for them to have affair and so He planned marriage by bringing a woman to a man. (Adam and Eve) in the garden of Eden.

Over the years, people have multiplied and filled the earth but God’s standard on having a clean union has not changed. God views extramarital affairs with married women as a sin

Even though God made us and put our organs in our bodies, he still wants us to use them in decent ways. In Deuteronomy 22:22 the Bible says, “If a man is found lying with the wife of another man, both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman. So you shall purge the evil from Israel.”

But then we read about a king in 2Samuel 11:1-27 who took another man’s wife and even kill her husband so that the woman can be for him alone. Verse 27 said God was displeased with him which made God to sent Nathan to David. We saw the punishment that God gave to him in 2Samuel 12:10, “Now, therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you despised me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.’’

The Bible passages above show how seriously God is not happy with such affairs. He wants us to be clean in our s_xual lives. He wants each man to get his wife and be satisfied with her. God is the same, yesterday, today, and forevermore. A lot of things may have changed but God will remain the same.

Even in new testament when Jesus came, he made it clear that he did not come to wipe off the former laws but to bring them to pass. “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” Matthew 5:17

It will therefore be good that men get their own wives and avoid going after married women which may attract God’s wrath on them. God’s word is against it and our moral cultures in Africa didn’t smile at such.
