Confessions of a serial adulterer

By Anonymous

Editor’s note: As you read this story, pay attention to what this guy does not say.

I am a serial adulterer. From early childhood I thought about committing adultery. When other kids were playing baseball and soccer, I was dreaming about having affairs when I became an adult. I got suspended from school the day we all stood up in class and told what we wanted to be when we grew up.

I couldn’t wait be old enough to get married. I couldn’t commit adultery, of course, until I had a wife to cheat on. I dreamed about affairs.  I tried to imagine what it would be like to commit adultery. I tried to envision who my first affair would be with. I tried to picture what they would wear. Where would I see them? What would I  say to talk them into commiting adultery with me?

I got married when I was 18. I had my first affair with my spouse’s maid of honor. It seemed wonderful. I knew I was destined to live a life of adultery. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I didn’t want to stop. I hit my prime when I was married to my fifth wife. I was averaging one affair a week. I knew this life was the life I was meant to live. This is how God made me. I was born this way.

I’m going to tell my preacher to stop harping on adultery as a sin. It’s who I am. It’s how I was made. People do it all the time. I’ve decided to come clean and admit who I am. It’s how I was made and we ought to be treated just like other people and not condemned for the person we are.  Don’t you agree?

  1. I assume you’re equating adultery with homosexuality. Except with consensual homosexuality people don’t get hurt; gay people don’t deliberately go out to hurt other people as in your pretend example. So the comparison is a pointless one.

    • You “assume” without knowing all the details of the story. This is not a “pretend” comparison. I’m not “comparing” this guy with anyone. Your attitude is exactly what’s wrong in our culture today. You “assume” you know what you’re talking about without bothering to hear or understand another point of view. It’s assumptions like yours that cause dissension and conflict. You “assume” you’re right and everyone else is wrong. There’s no room for other opinions besides yours. To me, that’s really sad.

      • I apologise if I’ve misread your post, although to be fair I believe you deliberately left it open to interpretation. I’m more than happy to be educated about your true intentions I writing the post and happy to have a reasoned debate on it.

        However I do think from your comment above that you’ve also “assumed” a lot about me, have you not?

  2. A sin is a sin. None worse than another in God’s eyes. What I wonder is, if we keep making the decision to sin after we’ve been made new through Christ, are we really truly changed by faith or are we believing a lie? Can we really call ourselves a faithful believer in Him? Because I love God so much, and yet I feel as if I too have things in my life which I cannot keep myself from doing. I know they’re wrong and yet I seem not to care in the moment of doing them.
