20 Verses About Adultery in the Bible

It is true that in God's eyes all sins have the same weight, and there is no one more serious than the other, but in a human or moral way, we have taken it upon ourselves to divide sins into the worst as stalking and the least bad as lying.

For God sin is sin, and that is why today we are going to talk about a sin that is becoming very common in marriages of the XXI century, that even within courtships it begins to be customary and to normalize this sin.

Today we are going to look at different verses about adultery in the Bible, so that we can understand the importance of faithfulness, both with your partner and with God.

The wicked are caught by their evil deeds, imprisoned by the strings of their sin. He will die for his lack of discipline, he will perish for his great foolishness.
