Sanford recently told supporters, "I am one imperfect man saved by God's grace."

This week there have been several big news stories involving adultery. This South Florida Sun-Sentinel headline tells the tragic story: "Three Orlando mega-church pastors resign after admitting to affairs."

On a more positive note, redemption is available for people that commit such affairs. South Carolina voters elected Mark Sanford to serve in Congress after his infamous sex scandal involving an Argentinean mistress.

The Apostle Paul offered advice for avoiding sexual sin:

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. - 1 Corinthians 6:18 NIV

J. Lee Grady, Charisma magazine's former editor, recommends 7 methods for preventing adultery. During Grady's career as an editor, his magazine reported the downfall of numerous ministers due to sexual sin.

Grady's advice is very practical:

Get regular spiritual checkups. Adults are supposed to see a doctor annually to prevent heart ailments, cancer and other problems. Yet many of us never open our lives to input from pastors or mentors. (And many pastors have no one to examine them!)

Be sure to check out Grady's article.
