On lust

It’s one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and in “our time it is difficult to underestimate the harm caused by the widespread tolerance and celebration of lust and promiscuity.” Marriage rates have dropped, lust is touted in music, movies, popular culture, and, of course, pornography. And artificial contraception has perpetrated the lie that there can be sex without consequences. [1]
