Bible verses about cheating on husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend

I am not a perfect being.

I have been on both sides of the cheating spectrum in my life.

In the past, I have cheated on my girlfriend and they equally have cheated on me too.

And besides God’s grace over my life, I am unqualified to pen down this article.

Nevertheless, I will.

I believe these bibles verses against cheating will encourage those that have been irreparably hurt by their cheating partners.

If your husband, wife, boyfriend, or girlfriend is taking you for granted, there are scriptures that can inspire you today.

In 2010, I had the worst experience of my life.

My girlfriend, whom I have dated for 3 years, decided to break up over flimsy excuses.

I was shocked because I have been committed and nice to her.

She meant it, and without remorse, she continued seeing another guy.

I was only 23 and couldn’t make the right decision.

It was devastating.

I couldn’t eat or live.

My life seemed to have stopped for days.

We later broke up and I started another serious relationship with my wife.

But, I couldn’t trust anyone again.

This made me cheat on my wife (then girlfriend) without even looking back.

But I now regret my actions and wish I had lived more honorably.

Those years I was not born again. And so, I didn’t understand what it meant to truly love someone.

Fortunately, my wife is a highly devoted Christian.

Each day, she kept praying for our relationship.

Three years later, my life changed.

Today, I have clung to God’s love and cheating is never an option.

If you are struggling with cheating or dealing with a cheating partner, I have compiled bible verses about cheating to encourage you.

Words of encouragement to your soul

1. Fornication is a sin

Over the years, I was deeply involved in the sin of fornication.

For years, I thought it was the best way of life.

After all, lots of ladies wanted me as their boyfriend.

But I have come to understand that, I made a huge mistake.

Fornication is a disgusting sin before God.

It means you are selling your body to someone that is not married to you.

If you are hurt because your cheating boyfriend or girlfriend is leaving, it’s an opportunity to repent.

I’ve been there before. And never realized it was time to repent.

I couldn’t imagine my life without her in it.

In fact, most times, I imagined her as the mother of my kids.

But here am I today, married to a lady any man would wish for.

I have written more about fornication here; Please read to edify yourself and repent.

But here are 2 bible verses about fornication.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies

1 Corinthians 7:2

But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.

2.  Do not repay cheating, you are only hurting yourself

Most times, we are so betrayed by the actions of our partners.

And we are tempted by the devil to take similar actions.

But don’t be fooled. I have been there in the past and I have done it.

Repaying sin with sin doesn’t take the pain away. But brings shame and guilt in the end.

If you are hurt, always search the bible for words of encouragement.

The first time I had a heartbreak, I completely lost it.

I wasn’t sure about how to get back to my usual self.

I started smoking which continued for about 4 years of my life.

In my wildest imagination, I thought she would feel hurt seeing me smoke cigarettes.

I was wrong. She didn’t even care.

When people cheat on their partners, they have completely lost the love and respect they have for them.

Whatever you do won’t make a difference.

If your wife or husband is cheating, don’t fail to pray. (this post will surely inspire you).

3.  Every relationship must be built on love

Love is the core of every serious relationship.

If you do not love someone, you won’t understand how they feel.

Cheating breaks trust and destroys the foundation of love.

Always remember God’s commandment of love.

“love your neighbor as your self”

Each time you feel like cheating, ask yourself these questions.

Will I be happy if my wife or husband cheats on me?

Love is patient and endures all things.

Likewise, cheating is dishonorable and can severely affect your reputation

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

4. Lying is cheating

Most times we want to be caught in the act.

We say, ” I never kissed him” or ” I never slept with him.”

But cheating starts from lying about the person in the first place.

God detest lying. So, as Christians, learn to be truthful at all times.

Hello! Last night I dream of my gf, whom I am going to marry. Here it goes. In my dream I was going to my gf to give her something, and when I knock on the door she opened the door and I saw her with another guy(complete stranger to her), who was laying on a chair going through his mobile. I was heart broken by the sight. I gave her the item and she took it and I secretly told her with hand action not to have any physical intimacy with him (as my thoughts were to marry her if she's still clean).
