Lust

    Newer Older

    As some of my FGR contacts have done today, I thought I would try The Seven Deadly Sins this week for no good reason. I'm mostly a pretty modest girl, so I did Lust first because it would be the most difficult for me.

    From Wiki:
    Lust (or lechery) is usually thought of as excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature. Giving in to lusts can lead to sexual or sociological compulsions and/or transgressions including (but obviously not limited to) sexual addiction, fornication, adultery, bestiality, rape, perversion, and incest. Dante's criterion was "excessive love of others," which therefore rendered love and devotion to God as secondary. In "Purgatorio", the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful/sexual thoughts and feelings.

    It's very bad, so don't do it.

      I think you did a great job without compromising what you are willing to do.

      For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
      --1 John 2:16-17

      also it says that evan thinking of a crime, not commiting a crime is as bad as committing it!

      Thank you everyone.

      While Josh above cites the sola scriptura Christian's point of view, I think it's safe to say that anything that replaces God in the heart (of someone who believes) is a sin.

      Don't do lust? aw what else is there?! I love the details (the ring) and the fact that most is out of view.
