A husband who loves to stare at the naked bodies of women (lovers of porn) and salivates at the view, longing to have them – 2 Sam 11:2-4; A wife who loves and is enticed by the looks and bodies of younger men – Genesis 39:7-12

One who is exposed to these challenges may at one time or another stumble into the succour of the chest of another man, or the bossom of another woman. Yes! Adultery it is… But woe as well, is he/she by whom any of these ones is led astray ==> It shall be better that a stone is tied round his/her neck and thrown into the river, than for he/she to face that which shall befall him/her…
