“But I would have to say that just having the thought pop in there as it can sometimes, it not a sin. Reject or dismiss it and that is a spiritual victory.”
Yes, that’s true, and that’s not the attitude I’m arguing against. I’m arguing against the attitude that one can embrace the lust, and say it is your preference, and think that, just because you aren’t engaging in homosexual sex acts, that you aren’t sinning. If you were struggling to reject those thoughts, then they wouldn’t be your preference, since obviously you would prefer not to have them.
OK. A face value reading of your comment didn’t indicate that.
I find that when I post, I know what I’m thinking and post based on that, and later when I reread my post, realize that someone could take it way different cause they DON’T know what I was thinking.
Or someone did and let me know about it
