The King's Speech Pt 6 - Adultery, Divorce & Vows (Matthew 5:27-37)Tim Douglas - Lead Pastor, July 8, 2012
Part of the The King's Speech series, preached at a Worship Service service
Life is never easy and Jesus knew that. You can live by cut and dry rules but they will never give you God's ultimate desire for you - pure and holy relationships. In today's message, Pastor Tim shares his own heart through the recent and personal trials of divorce, adultery and broken vows, and exactly what Jesus had to say about each. You have never heard this sermon before - listen in.

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.
31 “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.
