It's more like undoing what you've already done.
There's a difference between:
-looking at someone and finding them sexually attractive
-purposely looking at someone you find sexually attractive in order to derive sexual gratification
Can you tell what the difference is? Hint: Jesus was referring to the latter.
More, you've probably convinced yourself that it is okay to derive sexual gratification from someone who is not your spouse (by looking at people
lustfully), and so when you look at people your mind's reflexive action is to immediately look for pleasure from the sight of them.
And that reflexive action? That's not called natural - that's called being perverted - it's a bad habit.
How do we know it's bad? Because of how it negatively effects us: the lust for others creates an animosity or derision that weakens the bond between
our spouses and ourselves, and not only that, but it's selfishness, and that in itself can cause all sorts of unloving and whorish behavior if the
tendency grows. And then, on top of all that, there's all the emotional damage that can come from it: betrayal, guilt, jealousy, feelings of
worthlessness, depression, etc and so forth.
Now, am I saying that I'm better than you? No, but that doesn't give us the right to call bad good and good bad - that would probably be even
Also, you should seek God - he's really cool.
