So not one, but two deaths resulted from David’s sin with Bathsheba.The Bible teaches that adultery always leads to murder or death, in some shape or form, whether spiritual, physical, or both.He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children.It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him.In this day and age especially, not all judgments on sexual sin, specifically, adultery, are as cut and dry as the following scenario: And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
She became pregnant while her husband was gone, so in an attempt to hide his sin, David ordered Uriah to be brought home from battle so Uriah could have relations with his wife, so that everyone would think Uriah was the father of the child and David’s sin would not be known.Such a man might argue that the woman is not marriage material if she had sex before marriage. I can murder, I can commit adultery, I can please my flesh as much as I want, God still loves me because I love Him and I sometimes go to church on Sunday and sing about how much I love Jesus and I pray to him sometimes and tell people how much I love him.” When I hear this attitude, the Words of Yahusha come to mind, Workers of iniquity are people who sin. A loving wife is faithful to keep the marriage covenant, whether he keeps it or not, and both Jeremiah 31 and Hebrews 8 and 10 state that the New Covenant was the Old Testament Law, the marriage covenant, being placed on Israel’s heart, in her mind, to keep it.I would argue that he wasn’t marriage material either when he decided to have marital relations with a woman he was not married to. If we REALLY love our Savior, our Messiah, we will do what the Old Testament and New Testament, our marriage covenant, says.If we realize we are in a forbidden sexual relationship (whether homosexual, or adulterous), a sexual relationship that should never have come to be in the first place, we must end it.In the case of a pre-marital sexual relationship, it’s best for a man to get the father’s consent and follow through with marrying her as soon as possible, to take away her feelings of shame.
