How Do You Do It?: Keep Your Eyes And Thoughts Pure!

Hey peeps,

Im born again, tounge speaking, devoted to God, also HUMAN, testosterone filled young man, and yeah a VIRGIN, (its not been easy by the way),

I try everyday to keep my mind pure, I have eyes, I see some beautiful creations of God, well sculpted, y'all know what I mean. My mind wanders sometimes, a lot of times I allow it to, its fun; but we all know what the bible says,

I made a decision not to commit sexual sin, and that is what I live my life by, here's what makes it harder, lots of girls make passes at me, I know I have the looks (not trying to be vain, but if you see me you'd agree), the profile, nice dressing, great job, the whole works

But really, want you guys to share your experiences, how you keep your mind pure, what you do when it wanders, when you see graphic stuff (on the roads, t.v etc)

Like people say, "how do you manage congi", lol

Please share your thoughts.

Thanx guys

It's not a sin for wandering thoughts to come to you but when you buy such and begin to fantasize with them then it's wrong. You're spiritual yet you surround yourself with distractions like films with Intimate scene . There is high tendency for you to be battling with your mind.

You should simply get busy serving God with a strong passion. And cut off things that negatively inspire.It will grant focuss which will naturally knock out all wrong feelings.

But if not, maybe you should get married , like someone suggested . By following paul's advice:

1 Corinthians 7:9

9 However, if you cannot control your desires, you should get married. It is better for you to marry than to burn with sexual desire.

Simple by filling your mind with the Word of God, the word of God actually cleans you up gradually the more you mediate on it JOHN 15-3 says

Now you are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you

Let these scripture guide you

PROVERBS 4-20-22

My son, attend to my Words; incline thine ear unto my saying

Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart

For they are Life Unto Those That Find Them, And Health To All Their Flesh

ROMANS 12:2

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God

1 PETER 2-2

As new born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby

2 CORINTHIANS 10 -4

Casting down imagination and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity Every Thought to the obedience of Christ

PHILIPPIANS 4-8

Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I would re-word point 2: Do not watch/use Indecency.

I think you should be able to appreciate beauty (like the beauty we see in our every day lives, including beautiful people) provided we have the right attitude and we are trying our best not to be lustful.

As for point number 5, and the end of the quote, do you really think its a good idea to encourage people to use their desire to have sex with someone (no matter whether they think they're in love or whatever) to get married soon? Surely we all know we're not supposed to get married in order to make sex 'ok'. It's perfectly natural for a man to want to have sex with women. Any (young/youngish etc) man who says he doesn't think about sex with beautiful women is either homosexual, or has been castrated or is lying.

My point, however, is be very careful what you advise people to do. And sexual desire is natural, and not a cause to marry someone.
