If you look upon a woman lusting to have sex with her, and the only thing stopping you is the lack of opportunity, then you have already broken God's law in your heart.

He may be sure that his heart is still set upon evil. He may also be sure that if he would commit Adultery given the opportunity, he is not truly Born-Again because John says that "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin.

That is not true! It is simply the first stage of temptation. Temptation to commit sin does come through lustful desires, fantasies, etc. Being tempted is not an act of sin Harold Kupp. Originally Posted by mzjamiedawn.

But to say that desire is the same as lust, and saying that looking at the opposite sex and desiring them, isn't sin, I would say is just plain wrong.

If you look upon someone with desire wanting them that's lust, is it not? Jesus said to lust after her is sin. Also, I believe the verse you used about temptation was taken out of context.

Satan tried to tempt Jesus, yes, but Jesus was not drawn away of his own lust, so that verse has nothing to do with Jesus. It reads, "but every man is tempted, WHEN he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you've written. If so, and you set me straight, I will definitely apologize. Hi - please check out the thread - Did Jesus have lusts? Thanks HK. I think I just read that your pretzel logic now has made Jesus christ into a sinner because your wonderful command of greek and such has concluded through the Law of Modus Ponus, that he must be a sinner.

I believe He was saying like in the old, a man is not to have sexual relations with a married woman, but now if a man even looks at a married woman who he is not married to, to lust for her has commited adutery in his heart. Jesue used the term aduetery twice here, which generally means sexual relations with a married person who is not married to you.

For it is better to marry than to burn with passion. If we have to avoid an aduterers or some type of sinners house than avoid it so we don't sin. Last edited by tyrone70s; at PM.. Lust is wonderful and natural. The only thing better is the act which follows lust. That can be very pleasurable. Unless you're an emotional masochist! I believe it is normal for a single man to have physical attractions to a single woman and for a single woman to have physical attractions to a single man.

There are some organizations that are so strict, it makes it difficult to even allow the natural occurance for a man and woman to be attracted to oneanother which leads to marriage.

I believe things should be done decently and in order and if they abstain from sex before marriage they do a good thing, as this would be obedience to God. Look at my entry above But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. We see Jesus made an example to let us know that we need to take extra measures, to not allow ourselves to fall to sin. So is it okay for a man or woman to have sexual fantisies about others instead of their spouse?

I always thought it was a sin. Please clarify. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum. It is free and quick. Additional giveaways are planned.

Personally, God brought me to a brick wall some years back with my porn addiction, and showed me that it had had to end, period. It felt like God hit me with a two-by-four, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He delivered me. I have not been so successful in the day-to-day comings and goings.

Even prior to actually committing the act, once the will has turned towards illicit behavior, sin has already entered the heart and, once fully conceived, will bring forth death. This interpretation is reflected in the following translations:. So the common teaching is that sexual lust is absolutely evil—equivalent, even, to the actual act of sexual sin.

Jesus (Did He Mean It? ‘Lust is Adultery’)

To get to the answer we must look at the Greek meaning of these words. In other words, the heart is used figuratively for the hidden springs of the personal life. On the other hand, Scripture regards the heart as the sphere of Divine influence, …. As to its usage in the NT it denotes a the seat of physical life, ; b the seat of moral nature and spiritual life, the seat of grief, ; joy, ; the desires, ; the affections, ; the perceptions, ; the thoughts, ; the understanding, ; the reasoning powers, ; the imagination, ; conscience, ; the intentions, , cf. The heart, in its moral significance in the OT, includes the emotions, the reason and the will.

Matthew and Matthew are the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth verses of the fifth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount.

But I say to you, That whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew ,39 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire…. Matthew ,29 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: …. Genesis And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

Unfortunately, I believe that our understanding of what Jesus is trying to teach us is here, is blurred with old prudish and anti-sex Victorian-era view on sexuality. That is why we cannot quote any scripture out of its context without having it tinted by the glasses we are wearing at that time. So let us start by putting this specific verse, where Jesus is so clearly addressing the lustful eyes of the sexually charged male, into context and see what I believe the true message of Matthew is. Is Jesus speaking here as he usually did? If so, then the meaning of what He is trying to convey, is much deeper than just the literal interpretation of his words. Jesus largely spoke using parables without offering His interpretation to them, but leaving the listener with something to ponder over.
