7th Commandment: No Adultery

Salvation Bible Basics


The seventh commandment is in verse fourteen, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” You might think you are OK here since you have only ever been with your spouse. But let’s listen to what Jesus says in Matthew 5:27, 28. He said if you look upon a woman to lust after her in your heart, you have committed adultery with her already.

Now tell me you have never looked upon someone of the opposite sex and never had wrong thoughts. If you are of any age at all, you are guilty. Jesus says you are an adulterer. That is a pretty serious charge. We don’t have to dwell on these very long, I would hope, before you begin to see you are in trouble when you stand before God.
