The Heidelberg Catechism: Lord's Day 41
108. Question: What does the seventh commandment teach us?
Answer: That all unchastity is cursed by God. We must therefore detest it from the heart and live chaste and disciplined lives, both within and outside of holy marriage.
 Lev. 18:30; Eph. 5:3-5.  Jude 22, 23.  I Cor. 7:1-9; I Thess. 4:3-8; Heb. 13:4.
109. Question: Does God in this commandment forbid nothing more than adultery and similar shameful sins?
Answer: Since we, body and soul, are temples of the Holy Spirit, it is God’s will that we keep ourselves pure and holy. Therefore He forbids all unchaste acts, gestures, words, thoughts, desires, and whatever may entice us to unchastity.
 Matt. 5:27-29; I Cor. 6:18-20; Eph. 5:3, 4.  I Cor. 15:33; Eph. 5:18.

Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path: (Proverbs 23:19)
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
