To those of us who believe that flirting and unfaithfulness is okay, let me assure you that it is not.

No second Chances

We all make mistakes in our lives, some probably more serious than others and while I am all for forgiveness, it is obvious that there are some situations that require certain exceptions. When Tiger Woods got caught cheating on his wife, things went immediately south for him. He experienced quite a bit of negative publicity, though he probably should have expected that, considering his standing in society. Once the media got a hold of that information, they held on to it and it turned out to be a media frenzy. Tiger Woods tried everything, from back peddling, to apologizing to the public, to a promise of marriage counseling, unfortunately nothing worked, with a divorce being the end game.

Matthew five, verses thirty one through thirty two is quite clear on divorce, "Remember the Scripture that says, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him do it legally, giving her divorce papers and her legal rights'? Too many of you are using that as a cover for selfishness and whim, pretending to be righteous just because you are 'legal.' Please, no more pretending. If you divorce your wife, you're responsible for making her an adulteress (unless she has already made herself that by sexual promiscuity). And if you marry such a divorced adulteress, you're automatically an adulterer yourself. You can't use legal cover to mask a moral failure.”

There will never be any excuse for divorce, other than unfaithfulness, which is the predicament that Tiger Woods managed to find himself in. I suspect that the pain was too much for Mrs Woods, as it would be for anyone who still loved their spouse. It is one of the most severe acts of disrespect that someone can mete out to the one that they claim to love. To those of us who believe that flirting and unfaithfulness is okay, let me assure you that it is not. The only thing you will accomplish is to place a wedge between you and the one that you professed to love.
