Lust is a Demon

Posted by Iszi on October 2, 2006

I find it amazing how one can long for something that they can’t have, long after they’ve decided they do not want that longing.

…or have they?

Lust is truly an amazing thing. We see it everywhere in TV ads, billboards, magazines, and the like. Yet over half of all marraiges end in divorce, many because of this lust. Why society would perpetuate the feeding of the monster that is destroying it is truly beyond me.

Yet still, a person can find themselves struggling with the same dilemma from within. They may grow an attraction towards something or someone they cannot have and should not want, and yet still are unable to shut down whatever it is inside that draws them to it. Even when a person recognizes the presence and nature of this destructive force, they are still inexorably drawn towards it.

So, what is a person to do when the find themselves wanting something that they do not want to want?

    i agree with you whole-heartedly. I’ve seen this demon. It’s ugly and tenacious. Only through pray and consistent focus on God can it be banished.
