Just Lookin’

“You shall not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14

“Chaplain, I’ve never committed adultery. Sure I look but its not like I’m cheating on my wife or anything. It’s OK to check out the menu as long as I don’t order, right?” It would seem the simple act of lust would be pretty harmless but actually according to Jesus it’s the same as committing adultery. That would put 99% of us red-blooded American men in violation of the seventh commandment (and some red-blooded American women as well). That’s a high standard of holiness and believe it or not there are folks out there that think they are just that perfect. Every time we think we have a handle on personal purity, God raises the bar and shows us we just can’t make the grade.
