Christ has set a higher standard than the Law.

Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Is this really doctrine, that a woman’s infidelity is worse than a man’s?

Agreed, Christ fulfilled the Law of the Old Testament and gave the New Law in the New Testament.

"Christ has set a higher standard than the Law."

Thanks for your input. I think he was saying that sin begins in the heart for those who thought morality was just an outward thing.

He helps us all focus on the inward man.
