I've committed adultery. Can I still go to heaven?
I was reading the entries on sleeping together but not having sex and I am sad because it is true. I did not get burnt completely, but I sort of did. We sort of did, and now I feel very bad.

I have asked God for forgiveness, but how can I forgive myself?Where in the Bible does it give permission for 3rd cousins to marry?
