In this article by Reuters, posted on MSNBC, we are told that men may not be responsible for their sinful behavior in the context of marriage:
The same gene that affects a rodent’s ability to mate for life may affect human marriages, Swedish and U.S. researchers reported on Tuesday.
“We never looked at infidelity in our study at all. What we have been focusing on is how strongly men bond to their partners,” Karolinska’s Hasse Walum, who led the study, said in a telephone interview.
Walum’s team had been intrigued by previous research that showed one genetic difference seemed to explain why one species of vole formed strong pair bonds for life, while another mated promiscuously.
This is the world in all it’s wisdom, folks. No one is responsible for their behavior; we are all merely products of our genes, environment, and evolution. If a man cheats on his wife, it’s not a sin called adultery, but rather the fault of a defective gene. A man who hides in a closet with his computer and soaks in filthy images does not bear responsibility. When his wife finds him, he can blame his genetics.
Can we as a society become any more foolish? Is anyone responsible for anything they do? If not, why even have prisons? A person who bears no culpability for a crime should not be punished; he is, after all, a product of his own unchangeable circumstances.
Will the men who will inevitably use this excuse with their wives try the same before God on Judgment Day? What would they argue? Try as they might, God will not be swayed, as He says all men are accountable for their actions and thoughts. The fires of His justice will consume every adulterer, fornicator, pornagraphy viewer, homosexual, polygamist, and those guilty of any other kind of sexual sin. They will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
You have heard that it was said, “YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY”, but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:27-28, NASB)
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, NASB)
Only through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross can sinners be made pure enough to enter God’s Holy presense. Jesus’ redemptive work must be in place to allow God’s wrath to pass over any of these men. The eternal punishment they each deserve must be born by Jesus Himself.
