How would you confess lustfully looking at someone?


#1

If I was to look at someone and have inappropriate thoughts, would you just say that you’ve lustfully looked at people or would it be considered adultery?


#2

Read Matthew 5:28. Tell the priest that you lustfully looked at someone. Good luck and enjoy being forgiven :innocent:


#3

Liam, I agree with Karen, Prayers are with you. God bless


#4

Yes…“I entertained lustful thoughts while looking at a woman…” something along those lines.


#5

Just say you entertained lustful thoughts about someone other than your wife. Straightforward, clear, and brief. Don’t overthink it.


#6

Lust of the wife is fine. You don’t need to confess that, unless you did while erroneouly believing it was evil.

#9

Not! Desire your wife. Lust is sinful.


#10

So instead of clarifying what you meant, you decide to be uncharitable. Cool. Flagged.


#11

So, you unilaterally give ultimatums by saying: What? 1234567789

That’s not selfish?

I hereby flag you.
