Would you curse me if you knew I struggled with Lust?
I hope not, because I do.
It is no new discovery to say that the greatest crime of Lust is that it disguises itself as Love. But even in the middle of our Lusting, there is something in our hearts that isn't connected. There is something about sexual desire that needs emotion. It would not matter how often I could satisfy my desires, even if it were no longer considered wrong, I would never be filled without true relationship.
Lust cannot fill a hole that was made for Love.
Pornography is a cheap trick.
And it is time that we all realized, the joke is on us.
Wow this is the second realest thing I have found on this site in a long time. However I do think that you are being so real in this one. It's straight up and it's not saying anything that today's society actually wants to hear. People need to hear things like that in todays society because it is starting to be so corrupt and I'm getting tired of the fake part in everybody. I wish that you would stay this way where you stay real and keep speaking the truth. Thank you for being real.
I haven't read anything on this site in a while because I think most of it has become garbage, which may sound harsh, but I'm just stating my honest opinion.
I am glad I found this, though. I strongly relate to this. I'm in recovery and trying to build a connection with a higher power, and it's difficult to say the least. I've given up drugs and alcohol, but relapse is never far away, and there have been many other addictions I've stumbled upon trying to fill the same void; sex is one of them.
I'm not a preacher, so I won't say anything when it comes to God and sin. My personal higher power is loving even when I prove just how imperfectly human I am and slip into things that send me back into quite an immoral state.
I hope I'm not cursed for it either, because I curse myself enough. Thanks for sharing this, and thank you for the reminder.
i find a great tension when it comes to christianity and sexuality. i was always taught that lust and sex and everything was so bad... bad bad bad.
while i am all for abstinence and fleeing from the appearance of evil etc etc i find that the church is much too condemnatory of people who slip up in areas of sexuality.
sin is sin.
i think i said that in the last thing i commented on of yours. and god knows we are going to struggle. and the devil knows your weakness and is gonna milk it as much as he can.
and god promises us that no tempation has been laid before us that we cannot handle... that he will give us a way out... and some of his ways out are wonderfully creative but we need to be looking for them...
and yes... lust is a lie... twisting the ideas of love until they become unrecognizable... its really sad how easy it is to fall into these traps but i admire your willingness to confess to those around you that you dont have it all together... that you struggle too... that shows great compassion and maturity
i hope you find the real thing one day... that god places the a girl in your life and you spend forever together getting to know Him and each other
Very Good Write
It has always been my opinion and belief that sex is extremely overrated and should only be done to bring children into the world among married couples
I know I am rare in that belief but that is just how I feel and believe
You brought up some good points in this write and showed how Lust can destroy a person and his character and leave him empty
Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
