When I came this scripture, the first thing that came mind was is this possible. Can such a position in this in this world be reached. For such self control in eny individual, I have only seen it in movies and books but not in reality. Many would agree to disagree with the opinion I just mention yet I have to say religion is an amazing place to be in. To understand a religion and choose to be committed to one is an amazing thing.Matthew 5:28 ( But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart). This scripture says alot with only a few lines. Many would like to disagree with it. What I like about religion is that, it's aim is to help us be in control of our lives and to bring healing and protection. So some of the Words are hard to take to a certain point. Looking at the scripture it tells us how self control is important. Self control does not just help in marriage but in every thing that we want to do. Matthew 5:29 ( So if your eye-even your good eye - causes you to lust, gouge it out throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell). Lust is what we live with, weather we are able to control it or not. Lust is something that can happen even though we are not Lusting over a person. At times we lust over another persons things or material things. Disapline is something which God needs in every one of us.
