Christian Single Men and Lust

All Christian single men battle lust of the flesh from time to time. In fact, let’s just make that ALL guys, whether they be single men or married men, Christian or non-Christian. One single man pal of mine said if his girlfriend ever knew his thoughts, she would never stop slapping him! Listen, men struggle with lust, and any single man who says otherwise is just lying out of fear, manipulative motives, embarrassment or a combination of the three.The reaction of most single women reading the above about single men may vary:
  • Some may feel disgusted or discouraged that all single men lust.
  • Some may be thinking their single men is not like all the rest they’re dating them (um…dream on)
  • Some may feel so uncomfortable discussing the single men and lust topic that they prefer to ignore it by invoking the Too Much Information (TMI) rule when the subject comes up.

Unfortunately, none of the above reactions will help a single gal really understand and connect with a single men, let alone help him in any way.

Single Men Need Help

What Christian single men really need is an environment of open communication and compassionate counsel that will help him nip lust in the bud. The following verse needs to be in practice for single men to have a chance at conquering lust in their lives:

Bible Verse of Day “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galations 6:1,2 Unfortunately, since many evangelical churches encourage a culture of denial and secrecy, many single men suffer silently, and receive no help at all.

Hope for the Christian Single Man

Fortunately, single men who are dedicated Christians have it way over all other single men. The first reason for this is that they have a real desire to please Jesus. The second reason for hope is that Christian single men have the Holy Spirit living in them, who also gives them the power to fulfill their godly intentions.--unknown author

He needed to say so much more than this!!!! Read: Overcoming Lust as a Christian!

and Understanding Lust---

http://ezinearticles.com/?Understanding-Lust&id=1450570

These are incredibly insightful articles - written by a man - on lust and how sin starts at the first look. And even my own dear husband never realized this until this article. I went through a lot of hurt until he realized just the act of "scoping women" is sinful --- read the article and it will make so much sense. Men, read this and your eyes will be open and your heart convictd. Women, read and be aware that men can change with the right knowledge.

You're conscience is guided by Christ if you believe in him, so if you are a true christian then you would firstly not act on your sinful thoughts and secondly repent of your sins through prayer, the environment you choose to put yourself in and people you socialise with will obviously have a huge effect on lustful thoughts also, if you mix with people who have a wandering eye or hang out in places where woman flaunt themselves more then that's your sinful nature seeking lustful thought and should be avoided
