THE LAWS OF GOD - #7.B
General Adultery: MOSAIC TABOOS (Perversions and Sex Crimes)
God has set forth HIS Laws in the Holy Scriptures for ALL Mankind to
know--and obey (Proverbs 14:34 and Isaiah 60:12)!
7. THOU (you) SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
.A SPECIFIC ADULTERY - Wife Defilement
This issue of the 7th Commandment was covered previously. See at:
.B General Adultery: MOSAIC TABOOS
SCRIPTURAL PERVERSIONS (and Sex Crimes)
The other major definition of Adultery is basically taboos or
perversions (Biblical fornications) that we are not to practice.
Moses had a list of these specificaly preached against by his
teachings Acts 15:19-21). And, according to tradition, these
NOAHIC RULES excluded those who practiced
them, from Fellowship with the rest of the Hebrew Community, even from
Ancient Days. So, let us take a close look at exactly what these are,
so that we can avoid their practice among us.
- ..1 ADULTERY (Biblical Adultery):
adultery is consider a BIG and major perversion, but we have covered
that well in the above article on Specific
Adultery. (See above.)
- ..2 BESTIALITY:
sex with animals (Exodus 22:19; Leviticus 18:23,
20:15-16)--this would also include genetic engineering to produce
hybreds or mutans (human-animal half-breeds). Moreover, it would
make marriages with such hybreds or mutans very questionable, as
such mules are often sterile (thus blocking the Command to reproduce)
and if such reproduction were to successfully occur, it would deplete
the human gene pool! Consequently, it is NOT advised.
- ..3 GYNEARCHY (Matriarchy):
the unnatural ruling of women over men--radical feminism (Genesis
2:18, 3:16; Ephesians 5:22-24; I Peter 3:1-6).
- ...a REIGNING QUEENS:
Sovereign and Ruling Queens (not mere figureheads), or other female
heads of state, are considered a PERVERSION--and a curse from God
upon the Nation in the Holy Scriptures (I Kings 18:4, 19:1-2,
21:5-11; II Kings 9:34, 11:1; II Chronicles 22:10; Isaiah 3:12
I Timothy 2:11-14).
- ...b CULT PRIESTESSES:
the Holy Scriptures warn us to beware of the Cult of the Magna
Mater or Great Earth Mother (and its allied secret societies), for
their women rulers are a foreshadowing of the Whore-Witch of
Babylon (Revelations 2:20-22, 17:1-6).
- ...c CURRENT CURSE:
(NOTE: One of the main reasons that God has loosed the Curse of
Divorce upon America is because we have given such service to this
perversion of Matriarchy, even in our Congregations. For, it is a
sick form of Idolatry, placing the woman before God in a man's
- ..4 HOMOSEXUALITY (and Bi-Sexuality):
sex between those of the same gender (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13;
Romans 1:26-28)--for it is a foreshadowing of the anti-christ,
himself (Daniel 11:37). And though some modern groups like to
follow in the Grecco-Roman tradition and exclude the man-abuser as
macho, the Scriptures ban BOTH the man-abusers and the effeminates
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10). However, this is NOT to say that the Holy
Scriptures support GAY BASHING or other acts of violent harassment
against such deviants! For, if one is really trapped in this
addiction (and not someone's false accusation that it is going on),
then God's Kingdom provides legal means of dealing with it (Acts
19:38-39)--that is banishment for those duly CONVICTED at Court of
this (1 Kings 15:11-12 and 22:46) OR forgiveness, counseling, and
help to over come their addiction for those who will confess it
(1 John 1:8-9). See also, PUNISHMENTS, below:
- ..5 INCEST (Consanguinity):
marriage or sex with near relatives or close kinfolk, especially
those of your own bloodline. Now, while the Pagans of the wicked
world tend to believe that marriage or sex with one of them means
you are open to sex with all their family group, the Hebrew attitude
is very much against incest, with its major forms being abominations
and capital crimes--and its minor forms accursed with barreness!
- ...a CAPITAL INCEST:
acts of incest that the Law requires the death penalty for:
1-sex with father's wife (your mother), including step-mother and
father's divorced wife (Leviticus 20:11; Deuteronomy 27:20; I
2-sex with sister or half-sister (Deuteronomy 27:22; Leviticus
20:17; II Samuel 13:1-4), except where the half-sister may be
needed to preserve the royal dynasty (Genesis 20:12);
3-sex with a daughter (Leviticus 19:29);
4-sex with daughter-in-law or son's wife (Leviticus 20:12);
5-sex with a step-mother or step-daughter--including a
grand-daughter (Leviticus 20:14).
- ...b ACCURSED INCEST:
acts of incest where the person is to bear their iniquity for the
rest of their life and die childless--as accursed
1-sex with aunt, either father's sister or mother's sister
2-sex with uncle's wife, either father's brother's wife or
mother's brothter's wife, even if she should be divorced
3-sex with brother's wife, even if she is divorced (Leviticus
20:21; Mark 6:17-19), but if she should be a widow and be
childless, then she should marry her husband's brother (or near
male relative of her husband), to raise up seed for his lineage,
as in a Levirate Marriage.
- ...c TOLERATED(?):
this ban on incest is to be strictly observed, and any exception
should be RARE (if not non-existent)! However, the Scriptures do
seem to set forth, some, limited, remotely possible exceptions:
1-a great natural disaster or being marooned on a planet where the
relative was the only chance to reproduce, in which case the
Command to Procreate would take priority over the ban not to commit
incest--a Blue Lagoon scenerio (Genesis 4:1, 5:3-13, 19:31-32,
2-Or, perhaps, to keep a Holy Vow (Judges 1:12-13);
3-Or, for levirate marriage.
But, these should the rare EXCEPTION and NOT be in common usage!
- ..6 INFECTICATION:
knowingly spreading Social Disease(s) or Venereal Diseases (Numbers
25:6-9, 31:15-17; II Chronicles 21:13-15; Proverbs 5:3-11; Isaiah
3:16-17)--see also LAW 6.b.3 Social Diseases
under Public Health.
- ..7 LASCIVIOUSNESS (Pornography):
the shameless, open, or public practice or display (or pictorial
representation or physical image) of those sex acts that are
forbidden, herein--especially if it incites concupiscence or the
unnatural desire for what is forbidden (Pslams 101:3; Acts 19:19).
Moreover, Lascivious or Pornographic materials need to be
distinguished from simple erotic materials--see Tolerands.
- ...8 LEWDNESS (Obscenity):
either written, vivid descriptions of, OR sensual verbal discussion
of the sex acts listed as perverted, herein--especially if it incites
concupiscence or the unnatural desire for what is forbidden (I
Corinthians 15:33; Ephesians 5:4; James 3:3-6). Moreover, Lewd or
Obscene materials need to be distinguished from simple romantic
- ...9 NECROPHILIA:
sex with a corpse or the dead (Leviticus 21:11; Numbers 6:6,
19:13)--similiar if unconscious or sleeping (though, perhaps a lessor
crime then) (Habakkuk 2:15-16).
- ...10 PEDIAPHILIA (Child Molestation):
sex with children has long been banned in the Hebrew Community,
though usually the provisions against incest and adultery are used
to forbid it (and the avid chaperoning of children a strong
deterrent to its even occuring).
Traditionally, the right to consent or marry was given to girls
as they reached teenage or as they became a woman, with the onset of
menstruation (Leviticus 15:24, 33; Ezekiel 16:6-8; I Corinthians
7:36). This was recognized in the Bar and Bat Mitzvah, which served
as a kind of Coming-Out-Party (announcing their availablity for
(NOTE: many States in America use to allow 14 or 16 year old girls
the right to consent and marry. However, in more recent times, men
(and women)--who think they know better than God--have set about
to raise the age of consent to 18, and sometimes 20, or even as much
as 21. Such statutory rape laws often catch many unwares, so be
advised of your local State laws! Moreover, while such protection
laws claim moral and ethical purposes, in fact, all they seem to do
is to fill girls with unsatisfied lust and encourage them to whore
around, rather than marry and raise a family! I Corinthians 7:2, 9
And thus, fill the streets with teenage prostitutes.)
- ...11 RAPE: ...15 PUNISHMENTS:
the use of force or threat of violence to get someone to participate
in any one of these listed sexual perversions against their will
(Genesis 19:1-10, 34:1-2, 31; Judges 19:22-25). However, rape needs
to be clearly distinguished from seduction! Therefore:
- ....a RESISTANCE REQUIRED:
there MUST be evidence of reasonable, active resistance against
the act (i.e. not seduction):
- SCREAMS, cuts or abrasions of the skin, significant bruises,
or other evidence of putting up a fight (or the receiving of
medically noted physical injuries) against the act (Deuteronomy
22:23-24; II Samuel 13:12).
- WEAPON(s) used, or present, to threaten violence not only
satisfies the resistance requirement, but also link the crime
to the Death Threat under Murder, or at least to Armed Robbery,
making a double crime, here!
- ....b INVITATION TESTS:
no evidence of inviting, enticing, or encouraging the sex act
should be present by the woman to the man involved prior to the
incident, or it shall simply appear as seduction (especially if no
physcial injury was sustained):
no indescent exposure or erotic presentation should have been
made prior to the incident, for such exposure is commonly
considered an invitation to intercourse (Genesis 38:15, 39:7-8;
II Samuel 11:2-4).
no sexual opportunity should have been given prior to the
incident, such as walking into his or her bedroom (or apartment,
car, etc.) or being alone together (in private) is commonly
considered intimacy--and an implied invitation to intercourse!
Hence, the common Cultural norm for nice girls to always be
chaperoned or remain in Public Areas (Genesis 34:1-2, 39:11-12;
II Samuel 13:8-11).
no evident of drinking alone together should be present, as
drinking alone with a man is commonly considered an implied
acceptance of seducation--AN IMPLIED MARRIAGE PROPOSAL (Habakkuk
no evidence of a prior sexual experience between the two should
be present before the sex act in question, as seduction forms an
implied marriage (consumation) and your partner has the
reasonable expectation that you will do it again and again with
them, as in a marriage (Deuteronomy 22:28-29).
(NOTE: However, serious physical injury (medical injury due
to forced penetration), even in marriage, is justifiable grounds
for prosecution--and divorce, if need be (Deuteronomy 24:1-4;
no evidence of previous promiscuity should be present prior to
the sex act, as being an easy lay will make other men think that
you are easy for them, too--thus the common Cultural norm for
nice girls need to take care to guard their reputation (II
Samuel 13:2; Ezekiel 16:21-22, 27-30, 38-41, 23:7-10, 48;
- ...12 SODOMY (Anal Intercourse):
whether homosexual or heterosexual, rectal-genital entrance is
sternly forbidden by the Holy Scriptures, where the participants are
often referred to as dogs (Deuteronomy 23:17; I Kings 15:11-12;
I Corinthians 6:9; Philippians 3:2; Revelations 22:15).
Unfortunately, many States in America have added to this ban a
variety of coupling positions, as well. However, there is no
Scriptural support for this, as a variety of alternative positions
can be found there--see Tolerands. (But be advised of your local
- ...13 TRANSVESTISM (Cross-Dressing?):
dressing in public in a manner like the opposite sex or giving the
public appearance of being the opposite sex, is strictly forbidden
in the Holy Scriptures (Deuteronomy 22:5; I Corinthians 6:9-10).
Consequently, men and woman are to be encouraged to dress differently
and distinctively, so that they can be easily distinguished from the
other gender, out in public! (See Dress Code in Tolderands Section.)
Moreover, such activitiy may include homosexuality (above), making
it a double crime. In addition, this ban also forbids sex change
operations (Deuteronomy 23:2).
However, cross-dressing in private, between husband and wife,
may be a different matter--see Cross-Dressing under Tolerands.
- ...14 WITCHCRAFT (Cultic Harlotry):
sex with demons, evil spirits, or false gods (or goddesses).
Usually, this involves some kind of sacred or temple prostitution
where the prostitute-priestess acts as a medium or whore-witch to
the unclean spirit, so that sex with them acts as becoming one flesh
with evil (Genesis 6:2-3; Exodus 22:18, 34:15; Leviticus 17:7,
20:5-6; Deuteronomy 23:17-18; II Chronicles
33:5-6; II Kings 9:22; Hosea 4:12-13: Micah 1:7-10; Nahum 3:4-5;
I Corinthians 6:15-16; Galatians 5:20; Revelations 17:1, 15-16,
19:2)--often producing immediate possession (Hosea 4:11)!
As to the generally reputed special powers or magyck that such
relations are claimed to bring, see Idolatry. And for use of
potions or hallucenogenic drugs (supposedly, to get such ESP powers
or Magyck), see Sorcery, under Idolatry. Moreover, witchcraft often
involves other perverions, such as bestiality (for familiars), which
would make it a double crime.
However, this kind of Cultic Harlotry needs to be clearly
distinguished from simple or common prostitution--see Prostitution
PIMPING - (White Slavery):
Though it may be bad enough (yet, perhaps tolerable?) for a woman to
choose to defile herself and whore around, it is quite another matter
for her to be forced (coerced, extorted, blackmailed, etc.) to defile
herself--treat at Rape, above. Moreover, if the man in question has
so coerced more than one woman into such activity, treat as
Organized Crime under High Crimes! For Our Realm will not tolerate
such abuse of descent women!
(NOTE: Furthermore, as it was this practice of Cultic Harlotry
that brought the downfall of the Nation of Israel in Ancient Times
(being both Adultery or sexual perversion AND Idolatry, together),
it should be doubly warned against!!! And vigorously enforced to
preserve this ban for the security of Our Realm!)
Perversions (and Sex Crimes) ARE Capital Crimes and thus the
punishments for them are similar to those punishments found in
Murder and Violent Crimes. (See, also LAW
6.A.4.a CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS.) However, we must also realize
that sex is an emotional experience and often a crime of passion,
and God's Law is not to be applied without care and compassion upon
the weak willed and infirmed. Consequently, punishments for sex
crimes are generally prescribed to be lessor than those more
dangerous Capital Crimes. Thus, banishment (or excommunication) is
normally given (rather than execution) for those duly CONVICTED at
Our Courts--or the slavery option may be employed, if the convict
wishes to remain in Our Realm. Moreover, forgiveness, counseling,
and help (therapy) to over come their sexual addiction is to be given
for those who will confess it, and repent of such wickedness
(1 John 1:8-9).
.C TOLERANDS (PG-13)
Referred to as the Sexual Bill of Rights, this Article lists those
sexual activities that some may question as moral or not, but from
the Scriptures, we find that they were tolerated in Hebrew Culture,
even from most Ancient of Times. Consequently, that liberty ought to
be preserved and allowed, today (in Our Realm).

.D Specific TOLERAND Articles
Following the general Article on Tolerands, there are some Articles
that deal with specific issues related to the morals and ethics of
some sexual activities. (Abortion is the first one.)
- To get SPECIFIC TOLERAND ISSUES (Click
The Greek term Pornia, commonly translated as fornication in the
English text, seems to have no Hebrew equivalent in the Old Testament.
Thus, some have asserted that there is no such thing as fornication
(in the normal English sense) in Hebrew Culture, for according to
the LAW, consumation makes a de facto marriage (Deuteronomy 22:28-29),
so, technically, there is no unmarried sex?
However, in more closely examining the Scriptures, I think that
God's point is being missed here. And perhaps some of that comes
from this slight mis-translation. For, if you look for the context
clues as to where the term is used, and functionally defined, in the
Scriptures, you come to the Great Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15:19-21).
And, there, the definition clearly implies not just unmarried sex,
but rather the whole list of those items that Moses taught as
perverted, and thus taboo or banned from practice (i.e. sex crimes).
Consequently, it would be our assertion that fornication is too
limiting a term, for only unmarried sex is NOT being discussed here,
but rather a more general term, such as the word perversions might
better cover its true meaning. Or, to use the term fornications (in
the plural) so as to indicated that just not unmarried sex is meant,
but that all the other banned sex practices are included, too. (Such
as we have listed here, in this article.)
