Biblically Speaking - Adultery

Part 2 in my study on what is abomination in the sight of God.

Many believers have fallen into accepting that which is abomination in the sight of God. Unless we study God's Word to learn His Mind on what is abominable, how will we know to purge ourselves from abomination? Lord willing, I will be posting the fruits of my study on the word "abomination," but feel free to leap ahead of me and study it for yourself. What is an abomination to God?

Leviticus 18:26 - Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
Leviticus 18:27 - (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
Leviticus 18:29 - For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

Leviticus 18 goes into detail as to what God means by "adultery" in various forms, all of which are abominations in His eyes. Not only does God view this as gross sin, He warns us of the penalty for committing these sins. If the nations before Israel were driven out because of their sin, how much more would God hold His own to this standard of judgment? This truth applies to believers today.
