25 Compelling Reasons to Avoid the Seduction of Adultery
Larry Tomczak It seems not a week goes by where we don't read the account of some high-profile pastor, politician, celebrity or local leader who has succumbed to the seduction of adultery. Add to this the reports that flow in the office, on the campus or in our neighborhoods, and it makes you just shake your head and shudder, asking, "When is this going to stop?"

Scripture warns us that prior to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, wickedness will increase. In our sex-saturated society, all of us must be on guard against the "wiles of the devil" (Eph. 6:11, NKJV) in the realm of moral impurity.

First Corinthians 10:12 warns us, "So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!" (NIV). Gordon MacDonald, former president of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and author of Magnificent Marriage and The Effective Father, told us after his moral failure that he neglected to heed the counsel of Oswald Chambers, who said, "An unguarded strength is a double weakness."

Thank God that Gordon humbled himself, submitted to the discipline that was necessary, and today has been restored as an effective leader.
