The sin that we are going to begin looking at today is the sin of "lust."
TEXT: Job 31:1
We just completed over twenty lessons dealing with the temptation of covetousness or greed. Sometimes, when the Bible speaks of covetousness, it uses the word "lust", referring to our fleshly desires. However, today, we are looking at lust as it pertains to "intense or unbridled sexual desire, which leads to fornication, adultery, rape, and other immoral sexual acts," including homosexuality and pornography. In Dante's Inferno, those souls who were unable to master their lustful tendencies are eternally blown about in hot, restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control.
