The sin of adultery against love
A person who wants to love and be loved, to receive God's help in life and immortality, you should not only learn to love all people, but also try not to lose this ability by stupidity, ignorance or foolishness.
On Mount Senai, the commandments were transferred to Moses by God, united by one goal, which sounds like this: “Man should relate to what was created by God in His image, and should strive towards this through the likening and likeness of God.” One of these commandments definessin of adulteryas one of the deadly sins and says: "Do not commit adultery."
But before proceeding to the implementation and evaluation of this commandment, it is first necessary to understand it, subjecting it to morphological analysis and word formation. Do not commit adultery, what does this mean?
So, the particle “not” is a negation, “pre-” - an abbreviated prefix from “re-” - implies the wordsto step overortransgress(the word offender is the semantic formation of this prefix).And the word "adultery", consisting of two roots - "love-" and "action-" - carries the meaning and is borrowed from the words "love" and "action". As a result, we get nothing more than the semantic form of this commandment, which reads as follows: “Do not transgress love with action!” Or “Do not act against love!”
We will choose the opposite and similar meaning of this word, namely adultery, relying on a person worthy of all praise and respect, who knows how to cherish and preserve his love and remain in fidelity. Therefore, loyalty is an antonym, and a person who is not able to carry love in him and to preserve it often betrays his loved ones. in totalbetrayal- synonymadultery.
Since love itself is different and consists of many varieties, be it friendly or family, married or sons, one way or another, it carries a meaning as a feeling given by God from above. And if we take into account that God is love (as stated in 1 John verse 4: 8 “He who does not love, he did not know God, because God is love”), then in her idea she should permeate, warm and permeate the whole life of a person and his relationship with other people.
As of the above, any other kind of love can be betrayed by the sin of adultery, and that is exactly what the seventh commandment implies. The debauchery, fornication, images, prompted by the viewing of all the "dirty" literature found at every step, the adoption of impure thoughts and foul language, licentiousness and immorality, shown from the screens - all this gives a thrill and decomposes the human soul. In addition, any game of love is a grave sin and implies adultery.
Do not forget that we must preserve and protect love in integrity, both before marriage and during marriage, not allowing the sin of adultery to prevail, because it is called by the Creator to immortality and faithfulness to Him. If God is love, then everyone must become the embodiment of love and become like Him in the affairs of his earthly life.
