I have to believe that it is an orientation, and also believe that it is not curable. I had a client whose husband was like this and he never was able to lick it. She, of course, was heart broken and left him; it even carried over to his own children. So sad. I think castration might be the solution.
I agree with you. Modern psychology cannot apparently grasp the concept of sin and temptation so clearly evident in man and described in the Bible. The Bible also offers a cure. We are all essentially evil, each of us dealing with temptation. Christians understand this, repent and gain spiritual support to resist it. What’s a secular person to do when they don’t even accept a moral code beyond what they themselves devise?
