On a scale of 1-10, how would you rank the level of impurity of your thoughts - with 1 being a boy first discovering that girls don't have cooties, or 10 being one of the Marquis de Sade's novels?
You first. This is a confession thread. :lol:
I've always been interested in the theology and psychological factors behind impure thoughts and desires, and how to discern impurities from impurities in the world at large, so I've devoted some time to attempting to understand these things.
Everybody has a cross to bear, often multiple crosses. Try not to be the cross others have to bear, young feller.
That's profound, thanks. Slightly reminds me a similar quote or theme from Meditations by Marcus Aurelius (I can't recall the words though).

Exactly.

Exactly.
I often have evil thoughts and suspect everybody does as well.
Acting on those evil thoughts is what I try to avoid.
Seems to me that if you spend too much time studying evil it looses its shock value and that isn't good.

I laughed a little too hard at some of the jokes in the youth room. Forgive me Sweetnsour, for I have sinned.
