However, Jesus did say that if one looked upon a woman with lust, then he has already committed adultery in his heart, so maybe this would also include homosexuals lusting after others, but not giving in to the temptation. Having said that, I seriously doubt that any of them DON’T give into the temptation.
King James Bible
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Remember the Jimmy Carter Playboy interview where he admitted he committed adultery in his heart?
Yeah if in our heads we look at a woman and play out a lust scenario in our heads. We can learn over time to “step ahead” of where desire may lead us and “quench” the thoughts. Proverbs says to “guard the heart for out of it flow the issues of life.” The Bible says the “heart is desperately wicked and who can know it”.
My wise old grandma, when I asked her about what to do about “bad thoughts” said...”bats may fly thru your belfry but you don’t have to let them build a nest!”
