lust is any intense desire or craving for self gratification


lust Lust (or lechery) is an inordinate craving for coitus often to the point of assuming a selfindulgent, and sometimes violent character. Lust, or an immoderate desire for the flesh of another (outside of matrimony), is considered a sin, or impure act, in all of the Abrahamic religions.

Seven Deadly Sins Lust Gluttony Greed Sloth Wrath Envy Pride

In Roman Catholicism, lust (Latin, luxuria) is said to be a capital sin, and is consequently considered one of the Seven Deadly Sins. The reason for this is due to the Catholic belief that the gravity of an offence is measured by the harm it works to the individual or to the community. And insofar as impurity bears the evil distinction that, whenever there is a direct conscious surrender to any of its phases, the guilt incurred by the individual is always grievous. However, when there is some impure gratifica tion for which a person is not immediately responsible, but simply had posited its cause and had not deliberately consented, the sin is only considered venial. all images 2010 Š caesar lima
