21. Sixth and ninth commandment
1. The sixth commanment
The sixth commandment of the Law of God is: You shall not commit adultery. It also refers to impure actions. God orders that we will be pure and chaste in words and works.
Purity is the total repudiation to the uses of sexuality.
Chastity is the rejection of the illicit use of sexuality. Sexuality is nor bad, neither is opposite to the Law of God; it is good because it comes from God. Because of this, sexuality is fair inside a marriage, and it has the objective of perpetuate life by giving birth to children. Also, sexuality provides a great help in a married couple relation.
As Christians, we must love purity because we are members of Christ and our body is temple of the Holy Spirit. It is also a glory and an advantage to live in purity before marriage.
Sin against purity those who perpretate dishonest or dirty actions against themselves or against others, and those who voluntarily put themselves or other in danger of commit it.
The ways to maintain purity are: frequent confession and communion, devotion to the Holy Virgin, modesty and prevention against dangerous situations, like chatings, looks, readings, fashions, dances or dishonest shows.
