Ex president Jimmy Carter, probally to his own demise, admitted to being "human" and a "man". He was quoted as saying "... that he had "LUSTED" after several women while being married to Rosalyn ..."
Does this mean that He will go to hell? Is he a sinner?
I think that the answer to both of those questions are NO and NO.
Although I fault his politics and other things, I cannot fault the man for being a human being.
As Human Beings we all "lust" after something or someone at various times of the day. Scientists tell us that we think about sex every 8 seconds. Does that make us sinners?
Geesh, I guess that I am destined for hell then because as a human I have "sinned" according to those rules. HOWEVER, I feel as if I have only really sinned when I break an commandment and yes, I have sinned in the past and will in the future: I have at times taken the lord's name in vain and I have coveted another man's wife, one time, without my knowledge (she didn't tell me she was married). HOWEVER, I haven't killed or stolen anything except some flys with a fly swatter and maybe a grape or two off a bunch at the grocery store while shopping.
Am I therefore doomed???
I think NOT.
Likewise, I do not feel as if I am a sinner and/or should be chastised for being human and "lusting" after a woman who is fully clothed, partially dressed or totally nude. As long as my actions cause NO HARM to anyone else, why should I be denounced???
