Will the crimes of the mind
incrimate us to burn with flames,
the thoughts of being with someone
or killing another soul the same?

It is written law
that this is so,
so does watching
also bring you as low?

Who is right
who is wrong
or do we all dance
singing our own song?

Are you the fiddle
and I the bow,
are we the same
will we ever know!

What is the difference
between these thoughts.
what is what
and what is ought?

Copyright 2002 Tracey L. Hardie

Written in a passionate moment of thoughts about thinking a sin the same as committing it?

Tracey, In all actuality, thinking something and doing it differentiate them from making them a sin. The practicing of and obsession with sin is a sin but the thinking of it alone is not. The definition of sin is simply the commission of an act that violates divine law. I just do not believe that having a little of that sinful decadent chocolate ice cream once in a while constitutes a violation.

Tracey...I have been told that actions speak loader than words...Dream on, Dont act...Nice job here.

I agree with everyone here, there really is no answer for this besides what you feel in your own heart. I believe that all is forgiven when we meet with the creator, he is a loving God, it is us humans who judge ourselves and others so violently. Maybe if we didn't there would not be so much hate and sin in the world. Guilt and Vengence always lead to violence in some way, those are the "sins" that we have to answer for, but from what I understand, we are own judge when our time comes and we our face to face with our Creator. Who really knows? Only the Creator himself could give an answer to this question. Okay WOW! Ummmm yeah, this is thought provoking, I love a good conversation piece!

Very Good Write!

ok lets examine this shall we
SIN = Something Indecently Naughty
sounds like fun to me.
but look inside yourself for the true answer
and ask who might get hurt

Most of my sins were committed because I didn't think.

according to my mom the bible says it is the same, and all i can say then is 'I'm going to Hell for sure'. As for me, when i quit thinking about it (it being anything i shouldn't think about) then i will have little to write about. does any of this make sense????
