But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
Deception- One of the 7 things God hates is liars. As Christians we are not to deceive people and lie. The first sin was because the devil deceived Eve. This is the new being which God, its Creator, is constantly renewing in his own image, in order to bring you to a full knowledge of himself.
Proverbs Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. James So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

Pam Trevino More than 1 year ago No one wakes up in the morning and says, "I want to sabotage my marriage or have an affair. What starts as a small compromise becomes a slightly larger compromise, which becomes a greater compromise over time. The key is to guard your heart and stop the cycle early. But when you're framing this discussion in the context of sin, the horse is already out of the barn and you're in a losing position.
Better to start from the full frame of what God intends in marriage, and the slippery slopes that can quickly take us from "seemingly OK" to "gone. God have mercy on our sisters and brothers who are hurting in their marriages, and please help us learn how to help them as friends and fellow believers.
God, please help us put away our dalliances with sin and restore our wandering hearts, help us identify what is leading our lives away from You. This isn't only about sin, it's also about learning how to take our needs to God. Sex can be a convenient replacement for something much bigger that we can't identify because we don't know our real state, we live such shallow lives.
God please give us eyes to see what we must do to get a REAL foundation for our faith. But I was surprised to read the comments to the Deseret article. I am also surprised that no comment has mentioned that when we sin, whether adultery by whatever definition you have chosen or what God has given or any other sin, we can be cleansed of all unrighteousness by confessing our sins to the Father, Who is Faithful and Just 1 John This is the only way to deal with sins committed. And a way to avoid committing sins is found in 2 Timothy Obeying v15 brings obedience to v16; disobeying v 16 denies the possibility of obeying v Thank you, God, that You are merciful,and that Your grace abounds where my sin is found.

We are each accountable to God for what we contribute to our marriage.

It can be done with the help of the Holy Spirit, when we totally surrender to Him and submit our all. Anonymous More than 1 year ago This is all well and good and I appreciate the article, but it hurts to read this.
I wish my spouse cared to read an article such as this one. But usually the people who would be reading this article would be the party that is left emotionally alone in a marriage, not the person who does the leaving bc they might assume never to even read an article like this bc they can't or won't see the problem.
I would like to know how does a person live a fulfilled life honoring to God without the emotional connection that a person needs, craves, requires. It is an awful place that no one asked to be put in - but if your spouse refuses to engage at an emotional level then you are left alone. Who do you talk to about your most personal thoughts?

You feel trapped - with no way out - like you're in a life that must just be endured - all the while trying not to instigate anything bc you don't want to fight in front of your children. And that is no way to live.
source site To never talk - never share. All of the examples listed in the Salt Lake City poll I would consider cheating Even if that 3rd party does not have any sinful intentions towards you - it is so hard to not repeat in your head the very innocent and polite comments they've made to you. I know my spouse isn't the enemy - Satan really does come to steal, kill, and destroy - bc he seeks to rob me of a victorious, fulfilled and joyful life, which I have in Jesus Christ.
I have so many blessings in my life, yet this missing piece plagues me. I try not to think about how much I am missing - all that could be - for my children's sake. I want them to have a happy joyful mother. I hope that some of what I've shared speaks to someone - even if you only read and not respond. Know that I struggle with you and that the Creator of everything, of you and me, Our Lord is there in the midst of our loneliness with us.
I understand, having lived them for years. I discovered that GOD wanted to be the source to meet my needs. He called me to surrender my perceived "rights" and walk in love and compassion toward my husband, being grateful for what i did have. Taking hold of the murmuring and complaining thoughts that were poisoning my mind and heart. What freedom and joy came when I began receiving my needs for love from the only true Source of love.
Ben Voigt More than 1 year ago "perfectly natural to be drawn to a 3rd party who is kind, respectful, and thoughtful just out of sheer desperation bc your heart is starving for connection and love". When you look for an emotional connection without any romantic component, honor God by intentionally doing so in a way that can't ever develop a romantic component. Don't tempt fate by sharing your problems with someone of the opposite sex. Find a godly married lady who has time for you, and make an effort to interact with that friend both individually and with her and her husband together.
That way you get the support you crave, as well as a man's input on your husband's behavior and possible ways to reach him -- but all communication with him needs to be done in his wife's presence or through his wife. Not only does that protect everyone involved, but it helps her follow up with you concerning discussions you had with him, and it keeps him feeling involved in a joint effort instead of seeing you as robbing him of his wife's time. An enticing option is to find that friend in a family member, but a very wise mentor explained a big problem with that: your confidant may hold a grudge long after you've forgiven, and you never want to be placed in a situation of having to cut ties with a family member in order to avoid being poisoned by the past.
