St. Theophan: Thoughts: May 18/31

(Rom. 1:28-2:9; Matt. 5:27-32) “Whoever looks at a woman…has already committed adultery with her”. How is it possible to live in society and not look upon women? After all, not simply looking upon a woman is committing adultery but looking with lust. Look but keep your heart on a leash. Look with the eyes of a children, who look upon women purely, without a wicked thought at all. It is necessary to love women for in the commandment about love they are not excluded but with pure love, which has in it’s thought spiritual means besides all else. In Christianity, as before God, there is not male nor female, and it is such in inter-relations of Christians.
