Q: How can we define an “Adulterer” knowing that it has been mentioned in some texts that “the eye, the ear, or the hand commit adultery”?

A: An adulterer is one who entertains adulterous thoughts but does not necessarily act upon them. Many practice self-restrain; however, in effect, their emotions and thoughts art immoral. They commit adultery with the lust of the eye or the ear in their hearts. The long repressed wishes, fantasies, and instincts have already paved the way and when they have an actual chance, they are more likely to commit the deed.
