Disobeying God is a sin, but is thinking about disobeying God a sin?

Product Description

Seminary Professors Heath Lambert and Denny Burk tackle some topics that have become increasingly confusing in our culture, even to believers—homosexual desire and identity. Lambert and Burk remind us that sin has broken each and every one of us and that each of us struggle with sinful proclivities, homosexuality being just one of them. However, they remind us not to forget the redeeming and transforming power of the gospel.

Is homosexual desire right or wrong? Professors Heath Lambert and Denny Burk talk about the complexities of homosexual desire. Considering Jesus' words in Matthew 5:28, "that whoever even looks at his neighbor's wife to lust after her has committed adultery with her in his heart," Burk and Lambert remind us that God wants all of our desires to conform to His will, including homosexual desires. What we do is bad because what we want is bad, but there's hope when we point people to Christ.

Is being tempted to sin, a sin? Authors Denny Burk and Heath Lambert explain that while some sin is external and comes from the outside, like wanting that piece of cake our doctor told us to forgo, other sins are internal and stem from our own desires. Jesus never desired something that was forbidden Him, but we do. If you desire sin, then the desire itself is a sin. Jesus, however, came to bring life, and to transform our desires into godliness.
