Re: Am I a sinner?

Cheating with your husband's family member about as sinful as it gets.

I don't care what sex you want to sleep with. You cheated.

Confess.

Repent.

Your SIL has a lot to answer for as well. Her husband also needs to know.

Can you back that up with anything? Like, a Bible verse maybe?

Why does it need to be backed up with a Bible verse?

Her question wasn't if she cheated. She asked if she sinned.

Exactly. What's cheating? Anything you want it to be. Nowhere in the Bible does it say "Thou shalt not cheat."

I don't even know what to say to you. Inane discussions must be important to you. Enjoy.

Re: Am I a sinner?

Anytime religion or scriptures get involved it is going to be different for how people INTERPRET those things,.

But I think every single person can say that she CHEATED on her husband.

Generally, the world over, cheating on a spouse is considered wrong.

Re: Am I a sinner?

Mach is right. Lesbian sex is not defined as a sin anywhere in the bible. I saw a PBS program years ago about several orthodox Jewish couples living in Isreal in which the wife was a lesbian. She had a lesbian lover and would go to stay with her lover several times a month. The husband was encouraged to allow her to stay with her lesbian lover as often as he deemed she needed to.

The OP asked if she had sinned. The answer is NO.

Re: Am I a sinner?

Basically, we were all born sinners into this world primarily because of the ultimate downfall of mankind.

But Christ's death for us upon that cross at Calvary redeemed us all, greatly contingent that we have accepted Christ as our personal Saviour.

That being said, you should pray for forgiveness, and confess most apologetically to only your husband, telling him all of the details of what actually occurred and why. And you need to ask for his foregiveness as well.

And it needs to come primarily from you, because if such news came from somebody else to him, it might crush your husband considerably.
And after your husband forgives you, use it as a learning experience and move on!

Re: Am I a sinner?

The bible is very specific about adultery being a sin. OP, you know it was wrong. If it was your husband doing the same thing you would not be very happy about it. The bible does not have to be specific about your situation. As in was it humping? Was it the same gender? Were you sexually pleased with your spouse? It's clear about adultery being a sin. I would assume that you also made vows to your husband in a church. Those vows are promises to your husband and to God.

You also have a conscious, which I am sure is what made you post your questions. Listen to it.

It's not inane to the OP. She asked if she committed a sin in the context of Christianity, I replied and provided Christian scripture to buttress my viewpoint. So, it really depends on her viewpoint, tradition or sola scripture or some combination of the two. But what I provided her with is 100% of the scriptural statements.

...

The OP asked if she had sinned. The answer is NO.
He pointed out Romans 1:26 as talking about women with women. Unfortunately, he went on to say that those who use that particular verse use verse 27 to "hammer it home" so to speak. Maybe some do, but not all. Verse 27 speaks specifically about male homosexuals. That is very evident. But, taking the entire passage in context, from verse 18 through verse 32, it lists more than JUST sexual immorality. It talks about a variety of sins, including homosexual acts of both men and women..... AND even includes those who approve of those who practice each of the things mentioned in the passage. So, again, YES, she has sinned against her husband. Whether you want to accept that as truth or not, it is a sin.

You can use the 2x4 without adding nails to it.
