    Then I guess gay lust isn't a sin?? Because that is the answer I got here.

    Or is it that a gay couple has no biblical reason to be denied marriage if they are platonic?

    The point is that if they are not engaging in homosexual conduct they're not homosexual. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, emphasis on v11.

    Even if they are physically attracted to other men?

    I think understand your question.

    Jesus defined those men who lust after a woman in his heart as an "adulterer". So why would it not also be true of a man who lusts after another man in his heart be a homosexual. Correct?

    Lust may have many objects. It is lusting that is a sin.
    Lust always puts self first.

    Why do you think Jesus referred to those men who lust after women as adulterers?

    I think within the Hebew culture it was considered a given that men lusting after men is wicked. Why bother bringing up what everybody knows?

    Question

    Quote Originally Posted by S0ZO View Post

    A man married a woman. Once married he had a moral obligation to cleave to his wife only. Sin begins in the mind. Therefore Christ warned the married man against allowing thoughts of other women to have free rein his mind.

    Sorry, but that is not why Jesus said that.

    He said that because it is a sin to lust after a woman. In fact, it is committing adultery to do so.

    "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Matt 5:28
