    Note: Why is this in this forum? *looks around*

    Yes.. if you dwell on it... There is a difference between sin and temptation.. temptation ocmes to make you fall, sin ocmes when you have fallen. If you chose to dwell on sinful this or about sin it still is sin... So stop!

    Hmmm I think if thinking about sin and sinful things was a sin itself we would all be doomed. I believe its only a sin if we actually put whatever it is that is sinful into action. No one has a completely spotless mind!

    Your question can be answered by considering these Scriptures:
    Matthew 5:27-28 (noting also Acts 8:22)
    Matthew 15:18-20

    When you dwell on the thought, it is a sin.

    How can one mentally reject something without thinking about it?

    Relate this to Jesus being tempted in all things as we are.
