When I find myself drifting away, I often use as an excuse the fact that God clearly views breasts as nurturing nonsexual organs. It’s a form of cognitive dissonance. Purposely being one-sided in holding onto truths that justify my sin.
However, the absolute, undisputed truth is breasts are also sexual organs, so gentlemen, we need to be careful and respectful.
Look away, don’t stare at a woman’s breasts. It’s almost never okay to look at the breasts of a woman to whom you’re not married, unless you’re a doctor, breast surgeon, oncologist or similar.
The behavior described above is human nature. We always find evidence to justify our biases and pre-conceived notions. We choose to believe what’s pleasant, and hide or explain away the unpleasant. Again, psychologists call this phenomenon ‘cognitive dissonance.’ But the Christian has a new nature (2 Cor. 5:17). We’re no longer merely human (1 Cor. 3:3-4). We have a new Spirit within us (Eze. 36:26-27, John 14:16-17), a Spirit that enables us to say no to lust and carnality.
