Not that long ago, the evil of adultery was acknowledged by believers and non-believers alike. Everyone knew the high cost of betraying one’s spouse and family. Adulterers would usually lose their marriage, children, job (once the betrayal became public), and virtually everything else they once held dear. Adultery’s innocent victims (like children) would have their lives changed in ways they would spend a lifetime trying to understand.
Satan, who is good at what he does, knew that for adultery to inflict the most damage to the individual and the innocents who are almost always destroyed in the process, he had to make the unacceptable acceptable and commonplace. To that end, he had to convince society that those who honor the sanctity of their marriage vows are out of touch and judgmental know-nothings, “Neanderthals” who should never be listened to. America is too “enlightened,” and has progressed too far to go “backwards.”
So, like the frog in the pot of boiling water, adultery slowly but surely kills the heart of adulterers…it takes time, but that is always the bottom-line. It is estimated that 70% of marriages include at least one adultery. A perfect tribute to selfish America. We want what we want when we want it, and we don’t care who we hurt in the process.
This book describes the true cost of adultery. Please pay particular attention to sections on innocent children; we have been conditioned to believe that kids from broken homes do just fine. In some cases, the “experts” tell us that broken home children are better off if mom and dad are “happily” separated instead of arguing all the time. You’ll be stunned to read the statistics that prove the experts wrong- dead wrong.
Speaking truth to the lies of our permissive society is not to condemn, but rather to stop people considering adultery before they cross the line. Put another way, forewarned is forearmed; even if you are a victim of another’s sin, read with an open heart and mind.
There is a way to save everyone involved.
