The key is to stop this internal discussion before it gets rolling–to nip it in the bud–to not give the Devil a ‘place’–an entry point (as it is with anger–Eph. 4:26,27).
Once the place is given, however, demons can then actually drive the heart’s desire to lust, cranking up from what maybe was a 3 to a 10! Many people live like this constantly–never finding FREEDOM.
Paul said: “To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Rom. 8:6)
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.” (Gal. 5:22-24)
This is normal in order to be a child of God.
We must obey.
Freedom in Christ!!!

“Sometimes my mind wants to do one thing, like when it comes to, let’s say, I see a beautiful woman.
And my body says, ‘boy, it would be nice to be with her.’
And my mind says, ‘yeah, but if I do and she’s married, I might get caught; I might face the consequences’–a very logical reasoning.
And then my spirit says ‘that’s morally wrong to have sex with her outside of marriage.'”

Creation vrs Evolution
Keith Robinson has dedicated his life to teaching others about the evidence for creation and against evolution.
Jesus shows in Matthew 5 that lust originates in the heart, and leads to death:
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
This is a very serious matter.
We must overcome and be free!
