Watching "Diary of a Cheating Woman", a so-called documentary about the rise of women committing adultery. I have not been so embarrassed for us in a long time. Kind of sad really. I guess the premise is to laugh and joke about how it's okay to cheat if the guy isn't a good enough man for you - whether he was unfaithful or not. Set aside the fact that paying back evil for evil is against everything the Word of God stands for. Celebrating those who sin is the worst kind of sin. I am forever ashamed for every person involved in this project.
"Don't repay evil for evil. Don't retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it." ~1 Peter 3:9
"Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable." ~Romans 12:17
"See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people." ~1 Thessalonians 5:15
To be fair, it wasn't only about the women. There were a number of men interviewed who said they were prompted to commit adultery because of their own trust issues and/or because they learned their wives or girlfriends were already cheating.
Why am I writing about this? Research. These kinds of things help me understand where people are and how they think. Also, I know for a fact that a number of my readers are dealing with these kinds of issues daily and haven't understood what the Bible has to say about these matters of the heart. If you are okay with any of this, you need to check your heart and repent. You are broken.
I need to wash my eyes out now. Or maybe my ears.
