Growing up as a Christian, I was taught having a sexual fantasy about somone was equivalent to commiting adultery with said person. I don't agree with that now (I'm having too much fun daydreaming about a crush I have!), but I'd like to see some other people's thought on this...

I've never understood that logic. If fantasizing was equally sinful as doing the deed then why not go ahead and do the act? We can only control our actions. We really can't control our thoughts, desires and fantasies. How do you block those thoughts out? Attach a device to your genitals that will deliver a shock and each time you have "unclean" thoughts it will zap your d*** or p****?

Im waiting for some1one day to say...breathing is a sin and then I will crack it...but for now I try to control my feelings and be patient with the world and listen to whatever else they come up with. Seriously....these days if u fart in public it cud be called a SIN. Its like everthing we do is a sin. Its gettin a bit anoying. Fantasizing is healthy. Its good. I love it! ...it makes my day, when im having a bad one, id go home lie down and fantasize and after i will feel better. M i harming anyone there? NO....I cud only consider something a SIN when its physically harming some1 else, or emotionally but that depends coz we all get hurt from one another but thats normal as long as some1 is not purposly playing with your head and giving u a very bad time then thats just plain nasty!

I like gmonte33's answer, ur very right! :)

Well...the bible does clearly say that if a man looks at another woman with lust, he has already committed adultery in his heart. (I believe he meant lesbians too.) So, I'd have to say yes, it is a sin. See, we all sin, a lot, everyday. We're human; we all sin. That doesn't mean that we should feel justified in our sin. I know that homosexuality is a sin, but I'm soooooooo gay. It hurts knowing that it's true, but it's not something I can just turn off.

So, yes it's a sin. But no, it's not something that can be easily controlled. Wait, maybe you can control it a little better. You should try.

Ha, if it was then everyone commits adultery according to that. Those that say they don't are lying, just bend over in front of them and the second they take a peek they're probably fantasizing.

People need to get the pickle outta their *** about sex, especially fantasizing. It's normal, it's healthy.

i don't know about this sinning thing. the bible has a hold on too many ppls lives. it's way overrated and if i'm going down for that then so be it. i know some insecure girls that i've been with figured i might as well be cheatign if i look at another girl, but that is crazy, i really liked one but she was always accusing me of doing something when i really wasn't. i have cheated before but not in that case. so u have to answer ur own question.

If this was true then there are no guys on the planet who are not committing adultery to some degree, imo think anything you want, just act on those thoughts carefully

I don't agree with that. I think fantasizing is perfectly ok. it's acting on those fantasies (assuming one is in a monogamous relationship) that should be considered adultery.

i grew up as a christian and was told that masterbation was a sin, unless you were a man in jail and only then is it not a sin because you are fantasising about girls and therefore not going to turn gay...

um, so many issues with that!

a) only men may masterbate

b)masterbation doesnt harm anyone

c)the person that told me this was a religious leader and said this at a huge youth group

d)like masterbation will stop you from being gay

I am day dreaming of a pony-not for sex, and about hope-and true love

and are you a commedian-you do not grow up Christian-I was raised Jewish but that is a race with belief you grew up an american-and picked and chose what to believe-when you know God personally your a Christian -deamons believe and tremble-cause they are not Christians they just know about Christianity with no hope--- for hope=

first from above-I am born Jewish and taught to reject Jesus as a liar and deciever-but movies made me think twice -He does truely love us and gives us hope=YES THERE IS HOPE IN JESUS =EASTER RESURRECTION AND NEW LIFE

i PRAYED Jesus I am sorry for my sins, come into my heart and help me, be my friend, amen" now i live in the joy set free of salvation and promise of heaven forever too

Jesus promised "I love you, and knock on your heart door to come in deliver from sin and be your friend if you ask me in repenting of sin to be in fellowship with you and you with me." Revelation 3:19&20

Romans chapter 1 which is for all mankind =says by being unthankful, we worship the created rather than the creator and without salvation can be turned over to a reprobate mind to do what is wrong until we get salvation. Worked for me!

Ist Corinthians 6:9-13 "Homosexuals, fornicators and such WERE some of you, but you have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus."

if you stand by someone who is going against JESUS-you got the problem

being in hell for a day-that would change ones whole life-to come to salvation & pray more for those lost -not to go to gnashing teeth torment forever for rejecting the one that would love them forever=Revelation 19-22nd chapters Jesus describes the joy of salvation and heaven to come, and the agony of damnation.

SOME SAY THEY believe in Jesus...but they dont follow Him...no use..they just know Him by name...it's their choice coz for some reason and time they are happy with their PLEASURE FOR A SEASON IN SIN...God gave us the freedom anyway to choose from right and wrong

No, that's just the legacy of a bunch of prudish Puritans. Fantasize all you want. There's no harm in it and it's healthy for your own sexual development and pleasure. :)
