The Bible Study Hour

You have heard that it was said, "Do not commit adultery." But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. Matthew 5:27-30

The positive side of the Lord Jesus Christ's second great example of Christian conduct in the Sermon on the Mount is marriage - Christian marriage - and the perversion that is opposed to it is lust. Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5;27-28). According to Jesus, lust is the equivalent of murder. And the standard for His followers is to be, quite simply, chastity before marriage and fidelity afterwards. In this Jesus reinforces the whole of the biblical teaching.
