Adultery (National)

  • James 4:4 "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."

Most of the adultery in the Bible is national adultery. This is about asking amiss for what we want. Like the Corban that made the word of God to none effect and the Covetous Practices that made us merchandise and cursed our children. It is about our Wantonness and what "should have been for our Welfare but was a snare". James understood what Pure Religion was and certainly understood the Christian conflict with Rome and its Imperial cult.

  • Exodus 20:14 "Thou shalt not commit adultery."

Adultery and Fornication

We know that both the words translated into adultery and fornication are commonly used in the Bible to denote the acts of a whole nation. What is the adultery spoken of in the ten commandments? Is it just about sex?

In the matter of fornication we see a number of quotes to do with the Nation and Kingdom.

Isaiah 23:17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.
Ezekiel 16:26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.
Acts 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood.
Acts 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power. 1
Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly [that there is] fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.
Exodus 23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

And in the matter of adultery we see that whole nations and the Church can commit adultery which is idolatry.

Jeremiah 3:8, 10 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 5:7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by [them that are] no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses.... Jeremiah 7:9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;
Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Romans 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
2 Peter 2:14,19 "Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage."

The way nations do this is by covenanting with other peoples who do not love God and by becoming unequally yoked with those people and their gods by those covenants that are contrary in nature to the ways of the God of heaven:

Exodus 23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

It may become painfully obvious that these gods of those other people and nations are nothing more than the judges within their judicial system of judges who exercise authority one over the other in deciding what is good and evil.

If we know that a marriage license is a contract with the state and is not merely a personal ecclesiastical vow before God but an agreement that brings you under the authority of the State law makers and judges rather than the God in Heaven then that contract binds as one flesh not merely with our spouse but with the men of state who may now rule over that relationship with their own morality.

And if our vows of Matrimony are to be before God and between us and our spouse:

Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Then any other contract, covenant or conditions that binds us under another authority other than God would be a betrayal of our faith in God. Since adultery is really a matter of betrayal of faith then by the voluntary act of obtaining a marriage license and going under the authority of the judges of a civil court, who are called gods both in Israel and Rome at the time of the writing of the bible, as opposed to matrimony before God is in fact an act of adultery.

Ohio’s Marriage Laws Document.


“Marriage is a legal as well as spiritual and personal relationship. When you repeat your marriage vows, you enter into a legal contract. There are three parties to that legal contract: 1) you; 2) your spouse; and 3) the state of Ohio. The state is a party to the contract because under its laws, you have certain obligations and responsibilities to each other, to any children you may have, and to Ohio.[1]
“Marriage is often referred to as a civil contract, but the emphasis in such a reference is not on the word ‘contract’ but upon the word ‘civil’ as distinguished from ecclesiastical; since there is religious freedom in this country a religious ceremony, and rules of ecclesiastical organizations with regard to marriage have no legal significance.”
“Though mutual assent is necessary to enter into a marriage the marriage itself is a status or relationship rather than a contract, the rights and obligations of the parties thereto being fixed by the law instead of by the parties themselves. Hence marriages are not within the provision of the United States Constitution forbidding a state to impair the obligation of contracts.” [2]

Supreme Court of Nebraska stated that:

“It (marriage) differs from all other contracts in its far-reaching consequences to the body politic itself, and for that reason, in dealing with it or the status resulting therefrom, the state never stands indifferent, but is always a party whose interest must be taken into account.” [3]

By this information it may seem reasonable to conclude that anyone who gets a marriage license is living in an adulterous state.

But is the marriage contract the only binding covenant with the gods of the people of the world?

Or are there many others?
