As a Christian married man is it a sin to lust in my heart for my wife?


On occasion I um pleasure myself thinking about her. I was wondering though. Am I committing a sin for lusting after her? It doesn't feel like it's wrong but I was wondering what my brothers and sisters in Christ might say.

    Lust is not sin when done as one flesh. Marriage between husband and wife makes them one flesh, that no malice should emanate form their oneness, where Christ is center, who can be against this truth, evil w malice will go against this eternal truth

    Note this is Paul's opinion and not anything coming from Christ's teachings. You know, even though Paul was struck down, repented, and was then filled with the Holy Spirit, he was still a prick.

    True, eros and passion, but in God's words, it becomes 'agape,' in 'unconditional love.' It becomes perfect for it is blessed by the Spirit of God, for Jesus is the 'Word of God,' - in His righteousness is the light of truth leading to eternal life.

    Sex with the wife is healthy in body, mind, heart and soul, this is blessed by God for we are one flesh with Christ and one Spirit with Him in our sacred vow of matrimony, that we may not lust for others and avoid sin of adultery. No malice - 1 flesh

    May the Holy Spirit guide you Tom. Money and all things passing are imperfect, but God's words are perfectly eternal, they live forever, active and alive. But the flesh and things passing, die with the flesh. The spirit of truth lives w God forever

    Lust is sin if there is malice in your heart, and be wary, "The wages of sin is death, but the 'true faith' in Christ Jesus, comes the forgiveness of sins, in the power of the Holy Eucharist, we become one with Jesus, one with the Holy Spirit.

    When you have d light, sin in darkness is overcome, it is d words of God that filters, to know in our spirit what is 'good and evil.' With God's words, come our justification, that husband n wife are made 'one flesh.' God's words conquer all evil,

    The issue is not whether they can or have a legal right to have sex, the issue is a thought process (Lust) that in the physical domain leads to path of imbalance that results in physical death. If you can't get the real issue, you can't solve it.

    The books from the bible are divinely inspired Patrick. It is in the malice of our hearts that we may not understand them. Take away pride, comes humility, giving honor to our creator, where Jesus is One with The Father, One Spirit with God.

    Some Christians argue that the passage in Genesis 38:9-10 ESV refers to masturbation and that God therefore sees it as a sin. But other Christian scholars argue it refers only to ccoitus interruptus. This is why masturbation is known as Onanism.
