It's not a Vivek'y thing to do that.. give it up ... For god has better modes for happiness, un failing and undying.
Thou shalt not covet. - Exodus 20:17

Why do you keep craving in to sinful desires? (1) Because you have two natures. Like two cars approaching an intersection at the same time, your old and new natures are constantly on a collision course. (2) When you dwell on a desire, yielding is only a matter of time. Ever go to your fridge when you weren't hungry but weren't really satisfied, sort of looking for something to grab you? As bad as that is, it's worse when you do it in life. Sort of like surfing the web of behaviour options, looking for something to make you happier than you are at this particular moment. When you covet something, you make it more attractive and accessible than it really is. Eating too much? "I'll diet tomorrow." Smoking? "I know people who've smoked for 50 years and are still healthy." A one-night stand? "Nobody will ever know!" Covetousness maximises the desire while it minimises the danger.

Understand this: it's impossible to dwell on a desire for any length of time without rationalising a way to get it. Like starting the countdown on the Space Shuttle, it's just a matter of time until lift off. So, if you're dwelling on it, set the clock: yielding is inevitable. What's the answer? Change your focus! Listen: "Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit" (Ro 8:5 NKJV).

Simple Rules for this Site!

  Posted by Webmaster on Saturday, August 31 2002

Web-Ministry is intended for the Glory of God.

Please try to be respectful of God and to be reverent toward His Word, which is the Holy Bible.

Some may not be Christian nor agree with Christian theology in general,
but please be respectful of those that do and to Christendom in general.

People from all walks of life and backgrounds of faith are welcome here,
including the backslidden and nonbelievers, as well.

We may not all agree... but we can agree to disagree, at least.

However, any potential disagreements still need to remain civil in nature, and should stay as such.

Please, just debate the points of your position, if necessary, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
Slandering and name calling serve no productive purpose.

Posting rules are based upon decent conduct and generally acceptable chat behavior and,
also, on Christian beliefs and morals found in the Holy Bible.

Please refrain from using offensive language or obscenely suggestive innuendo.

Usernames that are not becoming of basic common decency and morality are not to be used and may possibly result in membership cancellation.

Refusing to follow forum rules may result in membership cancellation and possibly some or all applicable posts being deleted and if necessary... entire threads.

If you feel these things to be unacceptable, please find another forum to post on.Thank you.
