From Matthew 5:28
1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, Nor let her allure you with her eyelids.
The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the unfaithful will be caught by their lust.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
1 Corinthians 10:6
Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
- Note: The sexual sins of adultery, homosexuality, bestiality, necrophilia, pediphilia and fornication are more than sins of lust. They are also sins of identity against God. They are sins against the body which is the temple of God, where the Holy Spirit lives.
- 1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.
- 1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
- 1 Peter 2:11
Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
