So...why is lust immoral then?
Skombolis is actually saying that lust by a person committed to another, when it becomes an obsession, is harmful.

Well duh.

No, Al. It is a very normal human impulse, and I even see it as complimentary.

Exactly. Not every bad thought leads to a bad act. But every bad act starts with a bad thought. The more we allow those thoughts to dominate us then the more likely it is we will act on them. Did I try to sleep with every girl I could in HighSchool and college? Yes. But the original question is why is it harmful to have the thoughts. Both the thoughts and acting on them lead nowhere good. I was sick to death of the bar scene and one night stands by my last year at school. I wanted something meaningful at that point. Most people dont meet their wife during 'last call'. Had I had someone important in my life maybe I would have been less inclined to still be getting into street fights which cost me a year of my freedom and the girl I had been after for a while who told me my drinking, fighting, and sleeping around guaranteed she'd never be with me unless I changed. When I got out I had a decade of drug addiction. We reap what we sow.(T) PEACE

You see, what you said IS crazy talk while I talked with intelligence which you lack. You just repeat what you've been brainwashed to believe. You sheep are so sad. Bible thumping "christians" are those living in the past, cause the bible is ancient history, while the rest of us are above such degrading way of life and so we are living in the present.

And to be straight, I grew up Methodist, graduated Confirmation of Faith, and after becoming an adult and seeing the world for what it truly is, I became Agnostic. I believe in something, but I don't believe in Christianity. Fake christians = anti-christs. And one Baptist pastor actually agreed with me on the whole 3/4 comment I made. Only 1/4 will go to this so-called Heaven.

Obvious yet difficult to avoid. And the less practice we have at fighting it off the more suceptible we will be in it controlling us. That is why it is important to nip it in the bud. I cared a great deal about the girl who demanded I give up my vices as she wasnt going to be with someone whose future was probably going to be wasted despite enormous potential and at risk of sounding immodest, from someone more intelligent than most. I wasted my talents because I enjoyed giving into the flesh more than anything else. By the time I didnt, it was too late for who I wanted to be with and only made it that much easier for me to go back to what I knew. The more we do the right thing, the easier and more second-nature it becomes. The same is true for the wrong thing.It isnt so much any one thought or action but rather the road it puts us on.(T) PEACE

<quoted text>So does santa, the easter bunny, FSM, zeus, and a host of others...when you are speaking to someone in terms of their fantasy, you must relate terms within that fantasy. I am not angry, but it appears that your deity is perpetually angry. Not good for it-if it is a case of psychological association of the aspects of the deity to it's adherents, then the adherents need anger management therapy...you see-they exist-the deity does not-it is their imagined feelings being acted out by proxy(delusion).
Don't forget "he's" schizo too. "I'm a burning bush."

I understand Catcher, that lust is a biological incentive to propagate the human race, but its how we deal with it or understand it that becomes the central point whether its good or bad (morality) in a civilized society. Allowing a "human impulse" as you called it to go unchecked is not wise.

True enough. Everything has a price. But wouldn't waking up between the Olsen twins be cool? Just kidding...

In my past I have woken up between three girls that were far better than the Olson twins and the regret of my past decisions and actions continues to this day. This is why I feel I can speak about, lust, regret and repercussions.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Genesis 1 has been debunked by science. In fact, both of your creation myths have been debunked (Genesis 2). So has Exodus.
What is worth reading in your bible?
No it has not.
genesis was the only account ever to have put the creation so accurate. Genesis acount never says how long it took God to create the earth. The Hebrew word for day can mean a long time billions or millions of years.

Scientist once believed that sun revoled around the earth lol ..

The Bible even forsees the future when it says in Rev 17 that the U.N will destroy false religion.
I mean it even says her rivers will dry up
Meaning the influence of false religion as awhole will not be able to stop it.

And look today so many agonostic and atheist

The Bible is divine.
Maybe u should study it, modern English or new world translation are more modern English ones.

Rev 12 :9. This is Satan's world

<quoted text>
Like christians and their prayers, and their li'l savior and their belief that they're forgiven and that non-believers all go to their hell.
What a silly fad.
<quoted text>
Christianity is just as much a "fad" as Wicca or any Nature religion. More so, actually; it promises "salvation" from imaginary tortures.
I'm glad that the majority of christians here are killing their own religion.

Pay attention. If you need, sound out the words as you read them.

Whay you state about Wicca and "New Age" beliefs can also be applied to your christian beliefs--only with greater veracity.

I'm glad that the majority of christians here are killing their own religion.

And not pushy, either. They don't look for converts; christians need converts to bolster their failing religion.

If they agreed with me, then they wouldn't push to destroy lives and con people out of money for their "services." It is you who hates reality, and you really do hate it.

So, you did something that bit you back, and now instead of learning from that event and improving yourself, you choose to instead think of yourself as a weak and incompetent slave, seriously. The difference between an atheist and a religious person is that we learn from everything, especially our own mistakes, and don't expect some magical myth to fix it all for us.
