How can we establish a commitment to sexual purity that will survive a trip to the mall? It’s one thing to create boundaries for ourselves to stay away from pornography and provocative TV and movies, but how can we live in a world populated with attractive people and not go crazy?
By getting clear about the difference between looking and lusting.
Last week I was interviewed by the good folks at Covenant Eyes (the best accountability software out there today). They have a blog and a podcast, and Luke Gilkerson interviewed me about this important topic. Many Christians struggle to understand and apply Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5 which states that if a man looks at woman lustfully, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart. What does this mean? Take a listen, and tell us in the comments what you think.
