An english dictionary will probably make distinctions between the two terms. 

However, the Bible seems to make clear that God does not.

In Matthew 5:28, Jesus says: "But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

Later in Matthew 15:19, our Lord returns to the subject of head/heart thinking vs. Actions saying: " For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander."

Hopefully the above gets at what you wanted. 

Blessings all!
