  • Well, I believe premarital sex with anyone is a sin so yes, I'd think that cheating on a boyfriend or girlfriend was a sin, too.
    1 Corinthians 6:18
    18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
    Galatians 5:19
    19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

    What do you mean, "What kind of sin?"

  • yes, adultry. the bible says if you even lust over someone else in your mind its wrong

  • Yes, basically adultery. But also bearing false witness, because to cheat means that you lie to your spouse/dating partner. So that's two sins committed right there. When your SO finds out they will go through a range of painful emotions, you have hurt them and God has asked us to live in LOVE, cheating would go agianst that. Now cheating brings out a deep seething anger from most people, so now that peron will HATE you, loath and despise you. So you have caused your fellow man to sin because h e now hates you, and hating is as bad as having killed someone.

  • I don't believe in sin, but I do hold myself to the standard that I am faithful to my SO.

  • I don't believe in sin the same way as most other Christians do, though I do believe that cheating is something that hurts other people, so I guess you could say that it qualifies. I do believe that cheating is wrong because its dishonest and deceitful and because it hurts the SO so much.

  • I agree with kimmers and the other ladies who posted that yes it's a sin. First because I also believe premarital sex is a sin and second because it's adultry. I'm also not exactly sure what you mean by "what kind of sin" other than the adultry part and/or the scriptures kimmers provided. Sin is a sin is a sin. Interestingly what rhanford says is so true and also the bible states that committing 1 sin makes you guilty of breaking them all (that's why her "progression" was interesting to me). God does not discriminate..He hates all sin equally. Though if you repent of your sin and ask for Jesus to be Lord and Savior and therefore are saved, God is quick to forgive and blot out your sin as though it never far as east is from the west :)

  • While I don't believe in sin, I do believe that cheating is wrong. However, my definition of what constitutes cheating is alot more "liberal" then most other people.
