Now I take Pride in finishing what I start, (and I certainly Envy others who can do it) but I admit to some Sloth in not paying more attention to the Seven Deadly Sins.

I now give you Lust. (If, in fact, you don't have it already.)

In Jimmy Carter’s now famous Playboy interview, he reminded us that ridding ourselves of that particular Cardinal Sin is difficult.

“The Bible says, thou shalt not commit adultery. Christ said, I tell you that anyone who looks on a woman with lust has in his heart already committed adultery.”

Which I'm sure was a boon to those who had already actually committed it.

Medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas called the act, "The unnatural vice."

C.S. Lewis, British author and essayist, confronted the impossibility of living with the Church's definition of Lust with a little humor.

“He that but looketh on a plate of ham and eggs to lust after it, hath already committed breakfast with it in his heart.”

Lust is no bargain in other religions either.

The Old Testament's sexual warnings mainly have to do with preserving ritual purity and avoiding the orgies of the Canaanites. Still, there is the Song of Solomon and that line from Proverbs, "May her breasts satisfy you always"

From the Hindu scriptures, the Bhagavad-Gita, we get: Hell has three gates: Lust, Anger, and Greed.

In Buddhism, the three roots of evil are Lust, Hatred, and Delusion.

Oscar Wilde, who had an answer for everything, said, "'The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it."

And, if you're a good yielder, we now have a name for it: Sex addiction.

Some may think it's a convenient excuse for fooling around, but therapists say it's a real and destructive disorder, and that rehab could work.

(Of course, if you're in there with other sexually addictive people that could be a problem.)

Maybe there was a reason I waited so long to embrace this subject. It’s complicated. And I now, willingly, yield the floor to you.

Is the definition of Lust unwieldy? Instead of adding sins, as the Vatican is doing, should we not think of subtracting?

Help me out on this one.

J. Peterman

I could not access the link for "adding sins." I suppose that the additional sins are:

1. ``Bioethical' violations such as birth control


2. ``Morally dubious'' experiments such as stem cell research


3. Drug abuse


4. Polluting the environment


5. Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor


6. Excessive wealth


7. Creating poverty


The above is from http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=aizloDFbRPRM&refer=uk

About lust - I read something interesting in Wikipedia: "

In Judaism, all evil inclinations and lusts of the flesh are characterized by yetzer hara (Hebrew, יצר הרע). Yetzer hara is not a demonic force; rather, it is man's misuse of the things which the physical body needs to survive, and is often contrasted with yetzer hatov. This idea was derived from Genesis 8:21, which states that "the imagination of the heart of man is evil from his youth".


Yetzer hara is often identified with Satan and the angel of death, and there is sometimes a tendency to give a personality and separate activity to the Yetzer. For the Yetzer, like Satan, misleads man in this world, and testifies against him in the world to come. Yetzer is, however, clearly distinguished from Satan, and on other occasions is made exactly parallel to sin. The Torah is considered the great antidote against this force. Though, like all things which God has made, the Yetzer is good: for without it, man would never marry, beget a child, build a house, or trade."

The underlining is mine.

I never was interested in lust first thing in the morning. Coffee, give me coffee! I've had a lovely morning visiting the local podiatrist who has a bargain offer on cutting toe nails and a foot massage. Bliss. First time I have ventured into her shop. She's one of those people who I 'take to' instantly and she said she felt like she'd known me all her life. I've got those happy feet and a new friend. No lust involved. Talk about a bargain offer!

Corned Beef & Cole Slaw with cheese on rye - A good day on the road in Detroit (always an interesting travel destination). The lunch counter at Detroit Bagel had 6 fitness models, each unhinging their jaws and inhaling double sized versions of my sandwich! I had been waiting 2 weeks for that sandwich. Is that a sin?

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone," and so forth..."Everyone has sinned..." and all those verses that remind us of our imperfections. See this list:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/bible-verses-about-sin-10-important-scriptures/

Of course by the time one gets to be almost 70, we have had more time to mess up than those youngsters of 30 or 40 who are just starting out...The errors seem to pile up as we reminisce....However, my own realization is that I never meant to do harm, always tried to do right, and just did the best I could at the time. If that means I slighted my kids, failed to make a lot of money, or made my body imperfect, then I have to accept it. I am more about forgiveness and trying to do better. It seems to me more advantageous to think in the positive....

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/bible-verses-about-forgiveness-20-encouraging-scripture-quotes/

Lust is no more terrible than Anger or Greed or Gluttony it seems to me. It is not listed as # 1 on the No-No's. Obviously, we are to avoid all, and as humans, this avoidance is impossible, so the person who is Angry is just as sinful as the lustful.

http://keeptencommandments.info/keep/the_7_deadly_sins_of_the_bible.phtml

I like Hazel's post about the foot massage and nail trim! I agree, Haze, that is one of the pleasures we have in life now...All, remember that when you think about giving a gift...a coupon for mani-pedi with massage is a wonderful thing!

Lust? We should ask David about...

Bathsheba

A string of shells is all she wore,
her clothes lay scattered to the door,
she stept from the bath and across the floor,
a string of shells is all she wore
against skin as smooth as the polished core
of the finest of shells of the shells she wore.

A string of shells is all she wore,
she moved like the ocean moves over the shore,
a trail of wet footprints matting the floor,
she spilled like the ocean spills onto the shore,
a jewel of the ocean like the shells she wore,
like the finest of shells of the shells she wore.

A string of shells is all she wore,
a string of shells and nothing more.

I think you should choose your religion according to what it considers to be sins.  Or not.  If you and the religion have say 90% agreement in what is or is not a sin, then you'll probably get along pretty well being one of them.   I prefer a religion that concentrates on virtues rather than sin count, which is undoubtedly why I remain religion-less.

PAOLOS:  I have Addresseed this Topic copiously over the last five years, and only the Orthodox Yids and I know what Torah really says, because we UNDER   STAND the Words, in the Ancient/PreHellenistic Hebrew, and we do NOT interpret, because Interpretation means, Personal Opinion ... and Ha'Shem tells us in several places that we have no RIGHT to any Personal Opinion about what He has said .......
 
Miss ZENAIDA is a lovely person, and I think no less of her because she is wrong ... She has the typical/standard Liberal view of the issue, and she in entitled to it, and I hope that she will not take it personally that she is 180* out ....... As always, I sincerely do pray that those in error, are Blessed soon with the Light, so that they will understand what Ha'Shem said, and not lean unto their own understanding ... It is NOT, that I want anyone to agree with me ....... it is simply that I want everyone to experiewnce the Joy of understanding GOD's own Words ... Hopefully, sooner or later, every person gets tired of being wrong ... and once the Light comes on ... every person, paying attention ... can experience the Joy of knowing in your Knower ... what the Truth is ... while still being entitled to believe in the opposite direction ... I have had the same argument with my ownpeople for over half a Century ... I approach every situation with Rachmones (Compassionate Respect) and let GOD take care of the rest ......  But ... I'll Guarantee ....... that God can be a whole lot meaner that I am .......

IVAN ~ I don't think Miss Zenaida was expressing an
opinion but relating what wikipedia (the new font of all knowledge) expresses
about the concepts of yetzar hara and yetzer hatov. I don't really feel that
wikipedia did justice to the concept of these inclinations. I also believe that
you have expressed it better in this forum at other times. I could be wrong but
isn't the core of Torah found in this concept?  We have been placed in
this garden where everything is good and we have a choice to use what we have
been given in a way that will please or displease our Maker.

 

Speaking of liberal I read a comment from one the other
day and I can’t remember the event it referenced, but she stated, “I thought we
were a liberal community, I can’t believe we would allow them to do this.” And,
silly me, I thought being liberal meant you must allow them to do everything,
everything. In that sense, I suppose our Maker is very liberal, at least up to the point that we really psssss Him off.

The first time I saw an example of Gauguin's work in Tahiti, I was so blown away by the colors. I felt his words- "Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one's will. Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them."

My sins and royal screw-ups have pointed me home and while I am a redeemed soul my scars have proven quite valuably applied. It's a fine live between Saturday night and Sunday morning. Grace.

IVAN ~ I used liberal with a lower case "L"
meaning "generous" hoping to distinguish it from Liberal with an
upper case "L" meaning "generous with the property of
others."

 

Stoney ~ This may interest you. I don't know who is
working the copy desk at Merriam Webster these days, he or she must have a good
sense of humor.  Here is an illustrative usage example gleaned from the
files which would have been better expressed by inserting a modifier
"ice." 

Many fishermen keep their holes from freezing over
with liberal injections of antifreeze. —Time, 28 Feb. 1974

 

The copy editor at Time should have been flogged
or promoted.

 

"Where would I insert it," you ask?

 

I think either ice fisherman or ice holes
would be appropriate in this case.

May be both.

There is no such thing as a too dry sandwich with cole slaw on it.......and that's a very good thing.
