Sexual Purity Is a Matter of the Heart, Mind and Body

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Remove the Stumbling Blocks

It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away.

Jesus Exposes the Destructive Power of Sin

It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Jesus Makes Us Clean

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

How did Jesus respond to the woman caught in adultery?

8 53 Then they all went home, 1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

11 “No one, sir,” she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
