Lust

Discussion in 'Holy Spirit Baptism and Living' started by Cosmicwaffle, May 3, 2014.

  1. I am wondering what one thinks about when committing such an act. I guarantee you it is not about cars, boats, or the internet. It will be about that which arouses men, "women", and if you lust after a women in your heart then you have already committed adultery with her. Thank God for his mercy and grace or all of us men would be in great danger. :)
     
  2. Of course there's controversy. Supressing thoughts that come naturally is asking for trouble. Been proven time and time again and yet it still goes on. You try forcing another species to stop thinking about sexual reproduction and see where it gets you.

    The most basic animal instinct is a sin? I despair sometimes.
     
  3. We aren't animals Tubby. Stop believing lies.
     
  4. We most certainly are Cosmic. Perhaps not in your mind but we are just another species, no more, no less.
     
  5. Nope. God didn't create animals in his image. But he did create us in his image. That's what makes us special.

    Can't you tell we are different?
     
  6. What kind of monkey do you claim tubby?...lol
     
  7. Not really. Look Cosmic, I'll leave this thread and let everyone else tell you how to pray and be guilty and whatever else you want to hear. But one thing is certain, supressing those thoughts only leads to problems in those that allow that sort of brainwashing. You go ahead and enjoy the end result in 10 or 20 years time.
     
  8. Hey those who rape children love this kind of logic! Don't suppress it.. what nonsense made up by wicked people filled with there own evil lust to justify there own wickedness!
     
  9. Thanks, I will continue my walk with God. He's much better than the world.
     
  10. Animals is the correct word to descibe the behavior of people who go along with this nonsense.
     
  11. Hey animals just go jump on what ever it desires, and takes what it wants, where it wants. We should just act on our lust, like the animals we are? What nonsense!
     
  12. Ro 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
     
  13. ANCOVAs indicated that stayers (those who maintained religious involvement from childhood to adulthood) had more sexual offense convictions, more victims, and younger victims, than other groups. Results challenge assumptions that religious involvement should, as with other crime, serve to deter sexual offending behavior.
     
  14. No, not jump on any female that happens to be walking past. That's missing the point in a such a ridiculous way as to be irrelevant.
     
  15. An indoctrinated belief that sex is sinful is well documented as being a prime cause of sexual crime later in life. There are plenty of statistics to support this but carry on with your brainwashing Mitspa.

    What do you care, Jesus will save you anyway.
     
  16. Why not? You don't need to repress any lust do you?
     
  17. Not talking about religion, talking about living before the Lord in a good conscience. Religion and true Christianity are completely different!
     
  18. I care because He has called us to live good and moral lives as He gave us example! Your stats are silly because they do not understand that men are sinners and the law was to make sin exceeding sinful.. I agree that false religion promotes sinful lust and passions.
     
  19. It's about being a respectable human as we have developed a modern social structure to do that. It's a far cry from making someone believe that sex (or thinking about it) is a sin.

    Like I said, evidence is there for all to see about how repression causes sexual crime. You continue to ignore it at your peril.
     
  20. Tell me how?
