"Adultery. This is sexual unfaithfulness on the part of two persons, when either of them is married to a third person. It seems difficult to believe that a Christian would be guilty of such a violation, yet the writer knows of just such a case at this time . . ."This was written in 1957, of course, but was a Christian guilty of adultery so rare then? Or is my exasperation a result of anachronism? The statement comes across like he's recounting an incident of spontaneous combustion or something.
-- Lehman Strauss, Devotional Studies in Galatians and Ephesians
Adultery is all over the Scriptures. I gotta figure it was all over the 1950's too.
Or maybe it was invented by Don Draper the next decade.
