What Is Truth? - What Hath The LORD Answered Thee, What Hath The LORD Spoken Unto Thee?
"Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then? JESUS answered, Thou sayest that I am a king, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My Voice. [!] Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth?" John 18:37-38

. Papa Says, Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery With Thy Wife! (according to John Paul II).
This case is presented as an archetypal example of the ongoing practice of the time-worn practice of the Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes, and doctors of the law, condemned by John the Baptist and Jesus Christ, this Satanic practice of making that which is not sin into sin was rampant before, during, and after the time Jesus walked on this earth, and it still is! additionally, the related practice of making that which is sin not to be sin is as rampant today as in yesterday, and will be examined with the case of Vatican approved "annulment" of marriage, e.g. Joe Kennedy's attempted "annulment."
The 'text' for JP II's heretical doctrine is Matthew 5:27,28
"Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in heart."
Q. What is adultery described as being, or, How does God describe adultery throughout the entire text of His Holy Word, Old Testament & New Testament? Just this, a married man taking a woman (or girl) sexually, other than his wife; or a married woman taking a man (or boy) sexually, other than her husband; or an unmarried man taking a married woman sexually; or an unmarried woman taking a married man sexually; furthermore, a married man or married woman could also break their marriage covenant by committing sodomy (i.e. homosexuality), or bestiality.
Adultery could only be committed by a spouse with a person other than their spouse, it was committed against their spouse, not with their spouse; adultery was and is the sin of breaking the marriage covenant, by taking a person sexually other than one's spouse. [Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled, but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Heb. 13:4]
Not so with dear old John Paul II (and he concocted this damnable, fictional sin when he was 20 or so years younger than he is now, in case you were going to suggest age had something to do with it). John Paul II determined that if a man, a married man, a husband looked at his wife in the 'wrong way,' or 'improperly,' or 'lustfully,' or 'erotically,' or 'sensually,' or 'sensuously,' he was guilty of committing adultery with his wife!
Again, according to GOD and His Holy Word, Adultery is the sin of breaking the marriage covenant by sexually taking a person other than your spouse, period.
So tell me what has been and what is the likely result of John Paul II's creating and teaching his heresy concerning his new form of adultery? Just this: to cause people to actually commit adultery!
By way of an example, consider the following scenario: a married man who is a Roman Catholic of some sort, and who like the typical Roman Catholic 'faithful' does not know GOD's Word at all, but knows a little catechism, a few rituals, hail Mary's, novenas, saints,...., married to a Roman Catholic woman who is as ignorant of the Holy Bible as her husband is, thanks to the Roman Catholic 'Church' which chooses to keep the faithful ignorant.
The wife says to her husband that he is looking at her the wrong way, and thus is guilty of committing adultery with her, he decides that since he is damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't, he might as well, and he foolishly tells his foolish wife that as long as he is committing adultery even by enjoying the natural use of his own wife, he is going to go ahead and enjoy the use of the new woman on the block who has been making eyes at him, and complimenting him, and inviting him to come see her, after all, it's all the same sin, no worse, no better, but much more tempting because the new woman hasn't had several children like his wife has, the new woman doesn't belittle him (yet), and in fact she has been encouraging him to enjoy looking at her in all of the 'wrong' ways.
Yes and if John Paul's teaching on this 'marital adultery' isn't damaging enough, then we can count on Billy Graham's Evangelistic message to add fuel to the fire, emboldening the man to commit actual adultery, by persuading him that all sin is the same in God's sight, though scripture teaches otherwise.
Back to the scripture, "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in heart." This sin of adultery in the heart, is committed with one who adultery in the flesh is committed with, i.e. Not With Your Own Spouse, but with someone else, or with someone else's spouse. Additionally, you will note that Jesus did not say that adultery in the heart is the same sin or as grave a sin as adultery in the flesh (but it is sin and it does pave the way for the real thing, the physical, bodily sin, Matthew 15:18,19 "But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:").
John Paul's teaching does not discourage sin, nor turn sinners back to God, instead it encourages sin, promotes sin, fans the flame of sin by making that which is not sin, i.e. the marriage bed/wedded love into Sin , this emboldens sinners to sin to the utmost, since they are under judgment for sin no matter what, they might as well enjoy it to the full. John Paul II has succeeded in seducing multitudes to commit actual adultery by making honourable, clean, sanctified, sinless sexual union in marriage into Sin, the sin of adultery [this is just a variation of the same thing the *Pharisees* did during Jesus's day (when he walked on this earth)].
"Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God." Here the Jews (the Pharisees), state that children born of marriage are born of fornication, that marriage is fornication, that the marriage bed is defiled, is sinful, that sexual marriage union is sin, period. The Jewish rulers actually were serious about this, to them all marriage was defiled; all sexual union was sexual sin.
"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophecy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
"Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances. (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
Additionally, as Martin Luther wrote, "God uses lust to impel man to marriage." And as it is written in, 1 Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
. God does indeed use sexual desire and lust to impel man to marriage, which is why God fashioned woman with charms with which to stir desire in man. Before marriage man is motivated and driven by sexual desire and lust to seek a helpmeet, a lover, a spouse; prior to marriage, in order to secure marriage, man vows to be faithful to the woman chosen and whom has responded affirmatively to his proposal, he covenants with her before God, under God, to become one flesh with her, to be faithful to her, to care for her, to honour her, he 'cuts the covenant' entering into the covenant with his bride and cleaving unto her becoming one flesh with her by the grace of God, with the blessing of God, as God sanctifies that which is given thanks for. After marriage, the man directs his sexual desire and lust to his bride, his wife, all of his sexual desire and lust to his beloved bride, his wife, and so contains acceptably in the marriage bed with his God-given bride, his wife, his spouse, his lover, his helpmeet.
But diametrically contrary to GOD's Word, to GOD's Will, to GOD's Plan, to GOD's Purposes, the Vatican wickedly uses lust to compel man to commit adultery, by making marriage into adultery. As it is written in Holy Scripture, The Holy Word of God, if a man believes it is sin, it is sin!
So then, thanks to the perversity of the Vatican (yes, I said perversity!), you are damned if you do, and damned if you don't!
