Let your goal be to refocus rather than pursue a rabbit trail of looking at women.

Refocus.
Preach to yourself

You're behaving very silly and naive..
You love women..you love lusting sexually at them....I get all that...hey what's new!🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️....
Yet your comments to being told the truth concerning answering your original question is quite sad.It like someone asking if it is wrong to cross the road then being told it is wrong (not to condemn but to be honest with you)..you then respond with a continual barrage of negative comments and a total disregard for being told the truth.
What would you prefer us to do?
Tell you that it's ok and go ahead and continue??

Christians follow the Master's words, to the crucifixion of their flesh for a greater reward later. Calling oneself a Christian isn't an insurance policy for the afterlife. It is a way to walk. No way around it. No other way through the gate.

Matthew 7:13-14
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Luke 14:33
In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.

Matthew 16:24
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

John 6:63
The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are Spirit and life.

Luke 6:46
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?

Matthew 15:18
'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

But my posters do not effect my spiritual way whatsoever-it is only Christians with their obsession with sexual immorality that have a problem.
Obsession with sexual immorality?

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God (Ephesians 5:3-5).

The fact that you can tell me that it is a sin or a wrong doing for someone use their beautiful body to pose for some lovely 😊 photos to [...]
As humans, we have an uncanny ability to "reason away" [sometimes] the inappropriateness of a thing (this, that, or the other thing--any random thing one can think of or is faced with) until/unless we are willing to honestly examine its adverse effects.



Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 10:23, ""All things are lawful," but not all things are profitable; "All things are lawful," but not all edify."

And in 1 Corinthians 6, he said,

12 All things are lawful to me,” but not all things do profit. “All things are lawful to me,” but I will not be mastered by anything.

13 “Foods for the belly and the belly for foods,” but God will destroy both this and these. Now the body is not for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And by His power God has both raised up the Lord, and will raise us out.
15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Having taken then the members of the Christ, shall I make them members of a prostitute? Never may it be! 16 Or do you not know that the one being joined to the prostitute is one body? For it says, “The two will become into one flesh.”a 17 But the one being joined to the Lord is one spirit.

Temple of the Holy Spirit
(Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 3:16-18)

18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin, whatever if a man might do, is outside the body, but the one sinning sexually sins against the own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit in you, whom you have from God? And you are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body.b



Aside from that, one could be either doing the "look on a woman to lust after her" [even in still photos] or not be doing that, the person themselves know whether they are or not, if they are honest with themselves (not to mention, God knowing one's heart); a way to tell (I would think) is whether they would indeed post similar photos of their own mother, great grandmother, etc, and view those similarly... or not. ;) jmho

No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—[...]
Interesting verses in Ephesians 5 ^ . :)

The last verse in 1 John says, "... keep yourselves from idols"... this, after an entire 5 chapters spelling out things pertaining to the topic of "LOVE" (used 26x in 1 John; Surpassed in number [in NT] only by the Gospel we call John, where it is used 39x).

I guess the writer of 1 John wanted us to realize that the opposite of "LOVE" is "idolatry" (you cannot "love" someone whom you instead treat as merely an "idol").


This brings to mind what Deut5:21 says, "Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife"... and Ex20:17, "thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife" and also then, what is meant by 1Th4:4, where Paul says, "That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour"... which, in context, he is not speaking of a person's own body, here (but what the subject is of the wider context--which had to do with "DEFRAUDING a brother" v.5...and also v.3, etc).





What would be the need for this exhortation, if every believer walked absolutely perfectly from the time they were saved/came to faith/trusted Christ for salvation...

Thank you and everyone else for the bible verses regarding the subject i have enquired about. I have read them all before but have screenshoted them all today to read in the context as answers to my questions. As regards photos of my female relatives: firstly no of course i wouldn’t view my sister or niece in lingerie or topless in the same way‼️ I fail to grasp the point of such an implication of incestual behaviour. (Weird to be honest my dear) however you may not have read an earlier reply i gave in which I told how i payed my for sister to have a modelling portfolio done when she was 15. I have a 16 year old niece and if asked would do the same for her.

When the Spirit of God convicts a man of sin it is for the purpose of leading him to repentance and faith in the remedy for sin, Jesus Christ.
When you respond in faith and turn from your sin, then the Grace of God strengthens and establishes and settles you and you overcome in that area of the flesh you once were in bondage to. (or struggling with)
If you reject the conviction of the Holy Spirit and justify yourself and say "it is not a sin" then the Lord can't help you and you are driven to darkness.
There is only one sin that is unpardonable and it is sinning against the remedy.

Now you have been given the answer to your question. You have a choice to make. Continue in sin or repent. Come into the light or go further into darkness.
This is not a game. Because of your questions and responses that have been given you will not remain the same. You will either repent and start your journey toward holiness and the light and illumination that comes with it, or you will continue to declare that you are not sinning in which case you will be given over to more darkness and lack of understanding. One of the two will occur. You will not remain the same. Choose wisely.

You're so extremely silly.
You are like a little child enjoying rolling around in mud in front of those who are advising you to get outta there cox its making you unclean
You are bluntly expressing how much you love the mud.
Yet little do you realise that the mud you're playing about in is actually quicksand.
Foolish boy you are

What makes adultery a sin? God! Why? Because he said so.
Hmmmmmmmmm
I was hoping to hear your understanding as to why is it wrong, because if you're convicted in your heart that it is, I am assured that you know why.

Am I allowed a chocolate 🍫 bar-or is that a sin too?
Why not the same response - "because He said so"? Why do you treat different Scriptures in a different way? The same person who said no adultery is the same person who said to flee from sexual immorality. You're not applying a consistent standard, that should tell you something.
