Avoid anything that causes you to lust by Clay Jones

portrait of Clay JonesClay Jones is Assistant Professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University. Learn more about Clay here. He has started a series of posts on his blog on the subject of Sexual Temptation. You can follow him here.

In this particular post Jones gives helpful guidance on how to deal with lust. He states that:

Christians need to alarm about absolutely, positively every little bit of lust.

and gives points on how to take steps in order to control lusts. The first step he gives is:

Avoid anything that causes you to lust. I have found, however, that some people will say that they can watch a certain amount of sensuality, sexuality, or nudity and it doesn’t encourage them to lust. But, the trouble is that the reason these people say it doesn’t stumble them is they see so much extremely lustful material that they hardly realize that these little bits fuel their lack of self-control….

So, then, don’t read, watch, or listen to anything that encourages or causes lust. Nothing. If you can’t keep your eyes off jiggling bikinis, don’t go to the beach! If you lust after an actor in your favorite TV show—don’t watch it! Obviously this will result in a major lifestyle change for many.

Matthew 16:24: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
