As an aside, note that the difference between morality and legality would involve deciding what kind of actions require an official censure because they fall below some minimal social standard of acceptable behavior? I.e. laws require law-keepers, some kind of "police" force to enforce compliance, or else they are ineffectual and pointless..Okay. So are you saying that adultery is permitted but not moral? More generally, are you saying what is right and wrong under God's laws are different to what is morally right and wrong?
But, well, according to Christ's comments in the sermon on the mount, it seems like Gods laws should be understood to pervade far beyond either legality or morality and touch on the internal person? Which is to say, they even include the potential for divine judgement on the grounds of unacted desire that concepts like "legal" or most forms of "moral" leave untouched?
What do you make of these two passages from Matt22 which we've discussed before?
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, 'Raca,' is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
