Lust of the Eyes

TRUTH ALERT. We live in a world that accepts and glorifies the degradation of women. And the media does a great job at making sure that we’re always looking at them. Whether it’s in movies, television shows, music videos (etc.) If the woman has the goods you’d better believe we’re going to be staring at her!! Many believe they are justified when they lust af…ter women… as long as they don’t touch….

Let me just point out 2 scriptures that talk about that.

“No!! Not more scriptures!!”
Yes… more scriptures… 🙂

Proverbs 6:25 says… “Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes”

And in Matthew 5:28 Jesus says… “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

Physical eye contact with women isn’t wrong. What IS wrong is what’s going on in your heart when you look at them. Women are beautiful… They’re our mothers, our sisters, our cousins our friends and our equals. Degrading them to a piece of flesh is NOT ok.
