Scriptures: Matthew 5:27-30, 1 Corinthians 6:9
Something very little talked about is the tremendous negative impact cohabitation and adultery has on children. God knew what He was doing when He gave the seventh commandment about adultery. There is nothing more devastating to a marriage than sexual immorality. There is nothing more damaging to the teenage psyche than sexual immorality. There is nothing more destructive to the home than sexual immorality. Dr. Merritt shares three "building codes" for the family to guard against this devastating issue in a marriage.
"The Bible calls the soul of our being, our innermost thoughts, the heart. The Bible talks of all kinds of hearts--a pure heart, a contrite heart, a deceitful heart, and a proud heart. The heart is where the core of the problem of adultery begins." --Dr. Merritt
