Keep this in mind as you respond, I am asking about desires. Desires not acted upon, one for which you restrained yourself.
Have you ever had a desire you knew was immoral? In other words, have you ever had a want for something which, to your conscience, you were fully convinced was wrong to want?
How did you know it was wrong and immoral, by what measure did you know?
Why didn’t you act on it? Or if you did, how did you bring yourself to do something you had the control to refrain from, but indulged anyway? Is it something that you could just change the way you feel about it whereby alleviating your moral culpability?
Ideally, I’d like Atheists to weigh in on this post. I already know the Christian response, and it too would make for good discussion with the skeptics who choose to participate: ”If you believe in a God who requires moral perfection, and you truly believe in Him, how could you consciously violate that moral standard?” Atheists who might go on the attack, play fair and indulge the topic. Hopefully this one can remain civil. For the Atheists who respond, are you truly convinced you felt your desire was immoral due to social convention and engineering? If so, why not simply change your opinion and condition yourself to believe something else about the desire?
And keep in mind I’m not asking anyone to embarrass themselves or divulge personal information.
