ABSTRACT

God created man in his own likeness. So man has to live for God' Glory. Idol worship shades God' Glory. Also it violates the purpose of human creation of God. Idol worship here is spiritual adultery which God hates foremost. Physical adultery in law which God hates is phenomenal, but spiritual adultery is essential. Sexual crimes in Bible are sexual violence, adultery, incest, homo sex etc. Such crimes didn't be diminished in spite of strict punishment as well as idol worship of Israel. Nobody can be free from temptation of sexual crime by virtue of the physical law. But everybody can be free from temptation of sexual crime by virtue of holy spirit's law. Rape in criminal law of our country have several problems in relation to not only principle of sexual equality in constitutional law but also "No Punishment Without Law" in criminal law. Especially Rape by relatives in "Act on the punishment of sexual crimes and protection of victims thereof"have problems in relation to the scope of relatives, the concretization of rape's provision according to the type of relatives and degree of means. Although incest is more illegal and immoral than adultery, incest in existing law is not punished. So it must be punished separately according to the type of relatives. Taking this opportunity, I want to study "Bible and criminal law" by virtue of holy spirit's help in the near future.
