I wonder if Jesus expected people to read the footnotes in order to understand and believe stuff...hah.
Lust...nobody really knows what that means but we assume it's wanting or desiring something, usually sex, in an obsessive way. Pretty much everyone. We ARE animals after all.

We are not animals, we are uniquely created by God to have dominion over the earth and animals.. God created us with free will. We choose to sin, God doesn't cause us to sin.

We are not a theocracy. Even if gays are damned for eternity they are still protected by the Constitution.
