Q. 123 What is the seventh Commandment?
A. Thou shalt not commit Adultery.
Q. 124 What is God’s will for us in the seventh commandment?

Q. 125 Does God, in this commandment, forbid only such scandalous sins as adultery?
A. We are temples of the Holy Spirit, body and soul, and God wants both to be kept clean and holy. That is why he forbids everything which incites unchastity, whether it be actions, looks, talk, thoughts, or desires.
