Where does it say that thinking about sex is a sin in the Bible? The word "Lust" had a different meaning in the Old Hebrew language the Bible was written in than it does in current usage.
IMO, a sin is doing something to intentionally harm an other person with no good coming from it. For instance, giving someone who asks creative criticism isn't a sin, but attacking someone for something that couldn't help them may be. Physical harm is always harm, therefor always a sin.
If G*d created the heavens and the earth, trillions of suns and gadrillions of planets and all the beings on ALL these planets etc. WHY would He care what one person, sitting in their bedroom is thinking
about? I think people make themselves out to be much more important than they are if they think minor things like stray or even intentional thoughts "offend G*d." Or how or where people touch themselves or touch others with permission
. Does G*d really care
where you touch yourself? I think not.
I think G*d has better things to worry about; Wars, Murder, Financial Crimes, Rape, Child Molestation, Genocide...
While we're on the subject; WHERE is that in the Bible, may I ask is Child Molestation and Rape? Is the fact that molesting a child or raping a woman is NOT specifically mentioned as a sin in the Bible mean it isn't? I would say not. It's certainly a sin. WHY were crimes that target the weak left out of the OT? The Bible was... edited
by people who had an agenda. A control agenda. If you can control people's sexuality and how the poor spend what little money they have... you can control them.
But, I think He Who Created Everything has better things to do than to worry about someone writing a steamy story. WHY would HE care?
