Dating Others While Married
Anything that even "hints" of sexual immorality is inappropriate for a Christian. Although most people believe that as long as nothing physical takes place, what goes on in our minds is irrelevant, the Bible tells us otherwise. (Matthew 5:28-19).

Lust = Adultry. What part of "THOU SHALL NOT COMMITT ADULTRY" do you not get.

If you are looking for someone to tell you it is okay to date while married, you came to the wrong place. Even (some) sinners knows it is wrong to date others while married. Can you say common sense?

It's only a sin when you act on your thoughts. We can't help what pops into our heads. Though, I do agree that this guy is creep to cheat on his wife as he did. LOSER

Jesus said that if you lust after a woman it is the same as committing adultery. All sins are equal and they apply to both men and women.

Remember that when you sleep with a woman you are already shearing the same body with the person.Be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit, for he will constantly remind you of God's plan and show you how to carry it out. Remember that your body THE TEMPLE OF HOLY SPIRIT. When you do somethings that you know is wrong you will not be at peace with yourself so, try and be conscious of what you do in life because some of what you do fixes your destiny. God bless you as you remain in him.Read Romans 8:1-6.

Absolutely not. Need you ask? YOu really do need to deal with that abusive relationship and resolve the issues. Seek God through Bible Study,Prayer,worship and get counseling. Dating is like a drug fix. A High. But working on the problem will help you:)

Well Susie, since you want to bring up adultery into the issue and you seem to not know the definition at the time of Christ.
It is a women having sexual intercourse with a man other than her husband. Ii was a sexist society, the man could be only charged with fortification. Just as a husband could divorce a wife for any reason and a woman could never divorce her husband. So adultery does not apply to this to this question. A women can have male friends as long as it does not involve sexual relations.

No,it's not O.K. with God. It's a form of adutery, and giving the person who are writing too false information. Plus, you don't really know who you are writing too. What would be advisable it to work on your marriage. Maybe some professional counseling is needed.

I do believe it would be "OK" with God if you packed your bags and got out of that abusive marriage.
---Susie on 1/7/08|
There is nothing new under the sun, Bonnie.
This is common practice on other dating sites. Serial daters prey on their victims.
People come to CN to avoid that practice of lies and deception. If you're using obscure photos and deception, posing as a Christian, it will catch up with you sooner or later.
If the Moderator doesn't catch it, God will.

Bonnie, 'having an on-line penpan' I understand but what do you mean by 'dating on-line'? Also, since when did dating equate with 'for fun' and 'to pass the time' (especially in 'an abusive marriage')? There is absolutely nothing wrong in having a penpal, especially if you have time on your hands and have few friends but your question seems to indicate that you want something that I'm pretty sure would not be 'O.K. with God'. Please explain more fully what you mean.

Can you say adultery?????
---Susie on 1/6/08|
Bonnie you know it's true that it's not OK.
If you don't then you never really learned what Jesus said in his sermon on the mount. (Matt 5)
Your confusion is created because you have not stuck to the facts, (5:27-32) Holiness has no such provision of imaginary self pleasures simply because of suffering, the life that died on the cross for you didn't do it for this- so we could ignore HIM and sin for free.

God cares about what is good for you, Bonnie. So, if it would not be good, yes He would mind. Just feeling good is not enough. Possibly feeling good got the person to marry that abuser. So, fun and feeling good can be bait, to maybe get the person yet again with another abuser. "Get wise to what got you with the first one." I myself need to trust You, LORD, to make me honest in my relationships so I do what You really want with each person. Proverbs 3:5-6.
