Sex isn’t the problem, lust is [Book Review]

In the church, we often talk about the sexual acts we should not commit. Some sign purity pledges, some get accountability, and some simply say it’s too hard to live in purity, so they compromise their theology. Really though, as with all sin, at the end of the day, it all comes down to being a heart issue. With sexual sin, lust is the root of the problem, and lust is 100% a heart issue. Lust starts in your heart before it makes its ways into your actions. So it’s time we get real about what our hearts desire and start thinking about what we're thinking about.

Are women responsible for men’s lust? No. But we are responsible to love our brother

If I’m wearing a bikini to make guys drool, am I tempting them to lust?
