27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.”

I am doing an extensive study on Matthew 5:27-28 and will make an announcement once it is finished. It is a very heavy read and it is out of what mainstream Christianity is promoting. It reads very different in the Greek than the English versions. We must be careful that although we maintain high moral standards for ourselves, we must be careful not to promote legalism.
