108. Q. What does the seventh commandment teach us?
A. That all unchastity is cursed by God.
We must therefore detest it from the heart
and live chaste and disciplined lives, both within and outside of holy
109. Q. Does God in this commandment forbid nothing more than adultery
and similar shameful sins?
