Adultery: The Good Life?

Want an affair? It’s just a click away. Go to the Ashley Madison website and sign up!

Already the site has 7.3 million registered users, and the controversial ad rejected for the Super Bowl claims adultery is the answer to cheating mates. Even more controversial is their tag line: “Life is Short. Have an Affair."

It’s another a version of “Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” Where there is no God, there we can make up our rules for life, and anything goes. In fact, this website not only calls evil good, but also provides the facility to practice evil.

The Bible is clear, prohibition against adultery is the seventh commandment. Furthermore, it warns of “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20), and to those who “approve of those who practice [evil]” (Romans 1:32).

Adultery has been termed, “the soft underbelly of the law,” primarily, because it is widely held that sexual adventurism does not create victims. Of course, this is a lie. There are always victims of adultery: the husband or wife of the perpetrator; worse, children of the union.

Contrary to popular opinion that western society is subject to domination by other religions or terrorism, it is far more likely that any failure of western society will result from the break up of the family. And those who advocate our downward anti-God spiral will lead the way.
