    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the sin of any sexual activity between people who are not married." This answer aligns with the definition of fornication provided by Dr. Cole in the article reviewed in Basic 12. According to Dr. Cole, fornication refers to any sexual activity between individuals who are not married. This definition excludes sexual activity between a married man and someone other than his wife, sexual activity between a married woman and someone other than her husband, and any sexual activity in general. Therefore, the correct answer is the one that accurately reflects Dr. Cole's definition.

    Explanation
    Dr. Cole, as mentioned in the article, defines adultery as the sin of any sexual activity between a married man and someone other than his wife. This definition specifically highlights the involvement of a married man and another person outside of his marriage. It does not include sexual activity outside of marriage in general or the act of a husband viewing pornography. Therefore, the correct answer is the sin of any sexual activity between a married man and someone other than his wife.

      Permanence

    • E.

      None of the answers, A. B. C. or D. is correct.

    Explanation
    In his writing "Marriage, Abortion and Divorce," Lehman Strauss advised that Christians should not marry merely for sexual gratification.

    In 1 Peter 3:7 we are told that husband and wife in a Christian marriage are “heirs together of the grace of life.” Strauss defines grace as

    • A.

      The unwanted result of the marriage union.

    • B.

      A free gift from God to undeserving humans.

    • C.

      His desire that both husband and wife find pleasure in marriage.

    • D.

      Willing and able to change, to regulate and to correct one's behavior.

    • E.

      The marriage plan as it was changed by man.

    Correct Answer
    B. A free gift from God to undeserving humans.
    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "a free gift from God to undeserving humans." This is because in 1 Peter 3:7, it states that husband and wife in a Christian marriage are "heirs together of the grace of life." The term "grace" refers to God's unmerited favor and love towards humanity, and in the context of marriage, it signifies that the blessings and benefits of married life are bestowed upon both husband and wife as a gift from God, despite their unworthiness.

    Some religious leaders came to Jesus with a question. "Teacher," they said, "Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childlessly. The second and then the third married her, and in the same way, the seven died, leaving no children. Finally, the woman died too. Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?" (NIV) What was Jesus' reply?

    • A.

      "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children."

    • B.

       "The secrets of the kingdom of God have not been given to you."

    • C.

      "There is but one marriage. What God has joined together, let man not separate."

    • D.

       "Those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage."

    Correct Answer
    D.  "Those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage."
    Explanation
    Jesus' reply states that in the resurrection from the dead, those who are considered worthy will neither marry nor be given in marriage. This implies that the concept of marriage as we know it on Earth will not exist in the afterlife.
