Question 108: What does the seventh commandment teach us?

Answer: That all unchastity is accursed of God1: and that we must, therefore, detest it with all our heart2, and live a chaste and continent life3, both within and outside of holy wedlock4.

1Lev. 18:28, That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that [were] before you.

2Jude 23, And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

31 Thes. 4:3,-5, "For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: that every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour. Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: "

4Heb. 13:4 "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge."

1 Cor. 7:7, For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

Question 109: Does God in this commandment forbid, nothing more than adultery and such like gross sins?

Answer: Since our body and soul are both temples of the Holy Spirit, it is His will that we keep both pure and holy; wherefore He forbids all unchaste actions, gestures, words1, thoughts, desires2, and whatever may entice men thereto3.

1Eph. 5:3, 4, "But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints. Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. "

1 Cor. 6:18, 19, "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? "

2Matt. 5:27,28, " Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."

3Eph. 5:18, "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit."

1 Cor. 15:33, "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners."
