Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
James 4:4 (b) This word in this passage carries a spiritual significance. As those who are married may turn against each other secretly to find another companion, so one who is married to CHRIST and takes the place of being a Christian may turn against the Saviour and become a lover of the world and the things of Satan.
This is called spiritual adultery. This person professes to be a Christian, takes the place of belonging to CHRIST, but finds his real enjoyment, his love and his pleasure in the things that Satan offers.
