  • No nothing is sinful. There is theoretically no god it's all created by Neanderthals who slowly evolved and as that happened; came to existence God and religion.
    A hierarchy and societal structure to limit the population, resources and prevent illness, join hands in hunting and gathering whilst working together with assigned difficulty amongst early humans.

    So god and early humans designed the concept of religion. Because many died of fatal viral diseases, think of HIV , HEP C, full grade HEP B, and thr progress of HIV TO AIDS ( can take years in window period), syphillis a bacterial infection that can be passed to a developing fetus, EBOLA and some animal borne viruses, parasitic worms possibly too, fungal thrush and Bacterial infection like Gonnorrhoea, chylamydia were almost serious in cause and effect.
    Fatal often because science was fiction and non existent at a time humans were yet evolving socially.

    Sorry this Long winded answer is basically to emphasize religion has no say its fiction itself. As long as you are smart be healthy.
    Sexual thoughts are just thoughts but often lead to enactment.
    That's why I digressed.

  • I’m not religious but I don’t think that pleasure to one’s body can ever be considered sinful. What merit is there in suffering when it’s unnecessary? People who never have sex are often the most frustrated. Look at the scandals in the Vatican! Better have a good fuck from time to time and go through life without anger than having to walk around with blue balls or blue lips daily and pretend to be the good prude holy saint.

    • I think men can have a physical reaction to sexual frustration because of the buildup of semen but how can girls have something like that?

    • Honestly, everyone can be sexually frustrated regardless of gender. Ask my highschool teacher mathematics. She is the epithome of sexual frustration.

    • How did you know she was sexually frustrated?

  • That's a very difficult one to answer. We do not have control over our imagination. Plus, if we are able to control over our wild sinful fantasies and not act upon them, I think that is a better thing. Now if we do not make any attempt to stop our thoughts and gain some kind of pleasure out of them, only God knows. May be he would ask us and hold us accountable. Sometimes, praying helps when such fantasies screw with your mind.

    I'm not Christian by the way. Just voicing my opinion as someone who believes in one almighty God.

    You know what the great Mohammad Ali used to do? He would keep a match box with him. Whenever he would think he was doing something wrong, he would lit a stick and burn his finger. That was his way of reminding himself, if I cannot stand this, how will I deal with eternal fire where I can't even die. Well... so I heard. If I'm spreading false news, the sin is on me.

  • I voted E because this is what I understood from Jesus words that if "you look at a woman with lust you already committed sin in your heart."

    I do not take that verse as is because contextually, a few verses down, he said also "if you hand sin cut if off" and if you eye sin take it out.

    I won't suppose he was preaching for a Church with handless and blind people.

    So what he meant was, cautioning us, lust can and had led to sin. So avoid it to avoid sinning.

    But in itself, fantasies is not a sin. (Read Song of Solomon chapter 3 on how the would-be bride fantasized on having sex with her soon to he husband.)

  • No, it's normal human desires.

  • Matthew 5:28
    But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

    But there are a lot of things that are sins. And I believe this was said to point out the fallacy of trying to adhere to the Mosaic Laws while looking for loopholes and that there is no way to avoid such sins. So the only road to salvation is through grace.

  • Christian here and no, just hopefully nothing disgusting is all. I get that people have those thoughts

  • athiest but no and don't think it's a sin to act on them either.

  • I think if you believe in God aka the sky wizard you're mentally retarded.

    • Sky wizard😂😂

  • Yes. But so is simply wanting what your neighbor has. People who act better than others don’t get what sin is in my opinion.

  • aLL sexual fantasies can be fulfilled with your opposite sex spouse ! thanks

  • I think fantasies are healthy. I think it crosses the line when it's about a real person and you are obsessing over them.

    Everyone has fantasies, even the Pope.

  • It's considered lust, so technically it is. But as humans we are weak when it comes to our desires, just like our flesh is.

  • It's temptation, which leads to sin. That photo does the trick for most Im sure. this is why muslims cover women up head to toe in black square dresses. it's not easy to be sinless in our country, this is all human stuff. liking fighting our urge to have food or water, it's basic instincts.

    Back when people wandered the deserts in white cloaks and rarely saw a woman.. it was a lot easy. we don't realize how much temptation is around.

  • Fantasize away! It’s my belief it’s ok to dream or fantasize but to do it is when it becomes a sin. I know a lot of people will think I am wrong (and maybe I am) but fantasies are just thoughts and it’s much better to have bad thoughts then to act on bad thoughts.

  • I don't think so as long as you don't covet who already belongs with somebody else.

  • I was going to say F but D is very valid probably the best one

  • Only if you make it be a sin from your point of view. Otherwise, it's a natural human tendency or activity.

  • No! Christians are human too

  • I don't believe in "sins". I think it's an absurd religious dogmatic concept to shame and control people.

  • No not at all, I’m a Christian but I don’t agree with the sexual restrictions at all.

  • Probably but some Christians think you should have fantasies about magic or lord of the rings kind of stuff. No idea how people do it

  • Da heck... How is daydreaming about sex sinful?

  • I think it's part of us, it's acting on those sexual fantasies that's the problem, unless or course it's with your husband or wife
