If a person knew they were in adultery as the bible so clearly defines, then to escape it would be easy. First of all, they would need to repent before God and turn from their great sin. Lk 13:3 The one that they are married to is not their wife or husband. Therefore, they must put them away and remain single and celibate for the rest of their life. Even as Jesus said to the woman caught in the act of adultery should be the advice given to those freed from adultery, “Go and sin no more.” Jn 8:11
It’s a simple solution, but a very hard deed to accomplish. After all, marriage was given to man in order to evade fornication. 1 Cor 7:2 Often children are involved. Often, love is involved. Often, desire is involved. Is it any wonder there is no desire to end such relationships?
Separation from such adulterous marriages doesn’t mean to abandon a spouse and children financially or emotionally. Yes, you must stop cohabiting with your spouse. Yes, you must stop having sexual relations with them. However, you must still care for their needs. The love you have for them must transcend from the body to their soul. You must support any children you have with them and remain a good parent to them.
Yet, in this adulterous generation, it is a mute point to even consider such a needed decision. Why? Because most will never agree with what the bible meant by the simple word of “Adultery”. They have redefined the word so many times it is hard to even teach on the subject anymore. Nevertheless, the bible is definitive what adultery means. Mt 19:9
The best solution is not for the ones who are living in adultery, but for those who have never been married. If you are thinking about getting married, remember this, marriage is until death do you part. Mt 19:6 Marriage is safely designed for one man and one woman who have never been married. Yes, widows and widowers can safely be remarried as well. However, it is very dangerous to marry anyone who has been married before. Unless you were there when the infidelity was committed in a broken marriage, you are only taking the word of someone who wants to marry you now. If they have lied to you in order to obtain you, they will take your soul straight to hell with them. So, the best advice for the single Christian is to marry someone who also is a Christian who has never been married, and never seek to be divorced.
To those who may be living in adultery, follow God’s Word as it is written. There is one thing I know for sure, God will judge us all by it, and God’s Word can’t lie. Jn 12:49 f; Heb 6:18,19 What is actually said, it actually meant. 2 Cor 1:18 If man adds to it or takes from it, they will lose their soul in hell. Rev 22:18,19 f; Gal 1:6-9 The bible actually said a man has one exception for divorce and remarriage__fornication. Mt 19:9 The bible actually said a woman was bound to her husband so long as he lives. Rom 7:2,3 f; 1 Cor 7:39 The decision to believe the bible or man concerning divorce and remarriage is for you to decide. Remember, it’s your soul which will be punished if you die in adultery.
