Purity: Looking at bad things is OK if I don’t do anything.
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
Psalms 101:3 KJV
I am here to tell you based on personal experience that looking at bad things is NOT good for you regardless if you do anything or not.
Mental images of things seen that can’t be unseen stay with you forever it seems like.
They mess with your head.
They mess with your heart.
They mess with the way you look at others.
They mess with the way you treat others.
It just messes with you…trust me.
See, you can look at something bad (porn, nude photo) and not act out but the repercussions are there none the less.
Or you just do what Job did…
You can’t lust if your not looking! Just saying.
It’s about integrity!
Its about the heart!
No, it’s not ok to look at bad things…period!
