sixth commandment only Adultery ?

does the sixth commandment also includes al lother immoral sex acts ?

Jesus shows us that the 6th commandment refers to more than just adultery when he said:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

  • Matthew 5:27-28

Jesus clearly taught that the 6th commandment refers to all forms of the sin of lust.
