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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
