To the Extent That We Turn Our Backs on All Kinds of Adultery Because They Are Sins, We Love Chastity (Continued)

We can tell from what the Lord says in Matthew that adultery also means lecherous behavior, lewd conversation, and filthy thoughts:

You have heard that it was said by the ancients, “You are not to commit adultery”; but I tell you that anyone who has looked at some else’s wife in order to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:27-28)

from Life/Faith, Section 78
