Lust is a sin commonly talked about and condemned in the Bible, mostly the New Testament. Here is how dictionary.com defines lust (all definitions): – noun 1. intense sexual desire or appetite. 2. uncontrolled or illicit sexual desire or appetite; lecherousness. 3. a passionate or overmastering desire or craving (usually fol. by for): a lust for power. 4. ardent enthusiasm; zest; relish: an enviable lust for life. 5. Obsolete. (a) pleasure or delight. (b) desire; inclination; wish. - verb (used without object) 6. to have intense sexual desire. 7. to have a yearning or desire; have a strong or excessive craving (often fol. by for or after). I know that the Bible condemns sexual lust and the coveting type of lust, but I am focusing on the sexual one. It is a problem that all humans, especially us men, have, and I am no different. Just because something is natural does not mean that it is good. But anyway, which of these definitions is the Bible talking about generally? What would be a good study on the definition of this word? I know that lust is dependent on a stimulus, whether it be a woman, a man, or a chair. So what happens when someone gets that same feeling of lust when they are just sitting around, not doing anything that would incite lust? Is it just testosterone at that point, and is it considered sin? I know that these are problems that not only I deal with, but that you (mostly the men) also deal with or have dealt with in the past.
