Lust and Sin

By February 23, 2006

Follow me on:

Lust: The Seven Deadly Sins Book of the Day: Lust: The Seven Deadly Sins, by Simon Blackburn. Publisher: Oxford University Press.

Most people are acquainted with sin, especially if we define "sin" more broadly than narrow Christian doctrine and include within it the concept simply of transgressing boundaries of appropriate behavior. There are few sins with which people are so well acquainted as the sin of lust. But should lust get such a negative reputation and be treated as something dirty and nasty?
