Is it okay for a Christian to look at pretty women or handsome man?

That is, is merely looking at an attractive person, or acknowledged that they are attractive, the equivalent of lust?

We all love to see beautiful things of this world and a Christian is not exempt from the beauty of God's creation. The beauty of the opposite sex has been ingraved in us by the Creator which He used to populate this earth. The Creator also set some rules for His people.

1 John 2:15-17. Do not love the World or things of the world.
The lust of the flesh, lust of the eye and pride of life.
Deu 6:4-9. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and might.
2 Sam 11:1-5. David's lust of the eye and action made him commit adultery.

We have no fault if we see a beautiful woman (man) once, but when you take a second or third look, it works against you and the lust of your eyes.

Why you should watch where you look.
1. Honor God.
2. Honor your spouse.
3. Protect your heart.
4. Model integrity for your kids.
5. Honor Women.
6. Sinful thoughts.

Jesus said, if you lust, you have committed adultery in your heart. Mat 5:27-28.
