Are sexual desire, sexual fantasies, and sexual attraction lust, or not? I heard that those 3 are not lust, because I heard that lust is when you try to make those things come true. And I heard that Jesus said to married men not to fantasize about a woman who is not their own wife... And now they say that lust is illicit or uncontrolled sexual desire... Do I have to be ASEXUAL until marriage? Remember that God created sexual drive for people so people would be able to get married and reproduce. If God didn't create sexual drive, we humans would face extinction. And since I am young, I have these hormone storms that cause me sexual arousal and desire. Especially during the days when I get the period... I just can't become asexual... I would have to get clinical depression to become asexual. Also, if a child gets born before marriage, does that child have a soul?
