What Does God want to protect in the Sixth Commandment?

Share |

Thou shalt not commit adultery.

What does this mean? We should fear and love God that we may lead a chaste and decent life in word and deed, and each love and honor his spouse.

In the Sixth Commandment God wants to protect everyone’s moral character and the sanctity of marriage, which He has instituted, by exhorting us to lead chaste and decent lives and to keep marriage holy.

Prov. 4:23: Keep thy heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life.
