ADULTRY

Adultery

If you’re having an affair or contemplating having an affair, we want you to know that God loves you and has a better plan for you.

Adultery can be physical and/or emotional in nature. At its core, adultery begins with unholy thought that is allowed to grow into sinful desire and behavior.  Adultery is not what God wants for you. Some people believe that they have “been led by God” to have a relationship with someone other than their spouse. Know that God would never lead someone to do something He is against (Hebrews 13:4).

We don’t believe that it is possible to pursue Jesus and an adulterous relationship at the same time. We must do what we can to avoid this temptation. This might include avoiding contact with former boyfriends or girlfriends, setting healthy boundaries that protect your family on social media, and avoiding time alone with someone of the opposite sex that is not your spouse.

If you are struggling with this temptation or have acted upon it, we want to help.  If you are currently involved in an affair it is important to confess this sin to God (1 John 1:9) and to end the affair immediately.  Our counselors and affair recovery groups can help you with abstaining from the act of adultery, and help you with the heavy lifting of rebuilding trust and health in your marriage. 

If your spouse has been involved in an adulterous relationship it does not mean, however, that you should immediately file for divorce. Affairs do have the potential to end marriages – but they don’t necessarily have to.  Our counselors can help you heal from the trauma of being betrayed.

Lake Pointe Church is here to help you, not to judge you.  Adultery is a critical spiritual issue with ramifications that can be felt for generations to come.  If you are struggling and want to speak to someone, please contact Lake Pointe Counseling at (469)698-2250 or email us at counseling@lakepointe.org.
