Christianity -- Christian Living/Not sure what subject

Question
I am a woman. I like to look at pictures of naked women( breasts) and I like to watch videos of women getting bare bottom and totally nude spankings.  Does that make me a lesbian?

Answer
Hi, Lisa,
Please forgive me for taking so long to answer you.  The terms "lesbian" and homosexual are confused in our society.  For most, sexual desire for those of the same gender means you're homosexual.  Biblically, those who engage in sexual activity with those of the same gender are homosexual.  Of course, Jssus teaches us that the heart is the source of the good and bad that shows itself in our actions, so homosexual behavior is from the heart.  Whether it's homosexual or not, your actions of watching these things for your own personal pleasure shows a corruption in your heart.  It has to do with lacking love, and Jesus would show you a better way in which you don't view and treat people in such a way.  There is a beautiful way of life Jesus can show you that is free from such things.  This life is full of generous love that gives rather than takes and focuses on the needs of another because you are so confident that God is focused on your best.

Please let me know if I can help you further in pursuing the fuller life.  It is available to you, but you must desire to be in right relationship with our Father more than you desire these smaller pleasures.

Expertise

I can answer just about any question about Christian living, believing that the Biblical revelation is meant to deal with all of life. Though not every modern issue is addressed specifically in the Bible, I feel confident in applying the grand principles of love, submission and Christ-likeness to all issues. I can't answer some questions definitively simply because God has not given detailed information on some matters. I can draw valid conclusions from what God has revealed, though.

Experience

I was raised in the church from my childhood, and have had an interest in God, the Bible and spiritual things from a very early age. At around the age of 15, I felt led to pursue a future in full time ministry. I've been in professional ministry since 2003, but was very active in teaching and encouraging Christians long before that. I preached my first sermon at the age of 15 and have found great joy in teaching God's truths ever since!
