Question Of The Day: Is A Woman Responsible For A Man’s Lust?

Reader, I found this on Facebook, do you agree:
A man is responsible for guarding his mind against impurity and a woman is responsible for helping prevent the lustful stare. Lust is inexcusable on the man’s part; but if a woman by her apparel or conduct has encouraged it, she also shares in the guilt. Do you agree?


  1. Yield not to temptation is all about personal accountability. The world will tease & tempt you with many things, but it's up to you to decide & chose for yourself. If we believe the word of God then the world has to do the immoral things that his word said it will do. The saints just have to resist cause you can't change it or stop it. It's already been written.

  2. Romans 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

    The world will tempt us but those in the body of Christ should not participate in the brethren stumbling. We are to build each other up. That includes using discretion when both men and women wear clothes.

  3. I've seen so-called church going women wearing thongs up their behind with their jeans pulled down low. Many are the same ones yelling amen.

  4. Yes I agree whole heartedly that each of us, male and female Christian, stands responsible to guard our heats, minds and bodies/temples.

    Men of today often forget the Biblical examples of Joseph and David. Joseph choose to flee temptation by getting away from Potiphar's wife and David choose to let his eye linger in his soldier's wife. David took that man's wife.

    It bothers me that many in the body don't hold themselves accountable, publicly shaming women while not acknowledging that they made a choice to sin.

    Then whole congregations will shame women as if God won't forgive them and in the same breath uphold the man who also chose to sin. It's a mystery to me how wishy washy the church body is with shame and judgement. Sometimes Jesus's forgiveness of the woman about to be stoned is overlooked.

    We all need to remember to drop our stones and not just for these men caught in adultery, fornication and all manner of laciviousness. Because the blood of Jesus is effective for all, including imperfect women.

    Each of us, men and women Christians, have a choice that being Joseph's path or David's.

    1. The still says don't be a stumblingblock. Both men and women are held equally accountable.

    2. Each person, including a woman who may dress what some call inappropriately, may be a different level spiritually. If any given person is a babe in Christ, still drinking the milk of the Word does he/she even have the wisdom to know about being a stumbling block? Also, what if a given person doesn't even know the Lord yet?

      That's why we have to be mindful of how we give correction, mindful of how we share the Word. While we were yet sinners, Christ died....for all of us even that woman who hasn't learned the beauty of modesty and the protection of her vessel.

      I agree both men and women all of us have to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Hopefully, we have brothers and sisters around us who will speak to us in psalms/encouragement because anyone can stumble. All of us have to be on guard...that devil is roaming about looking for someone to devour.

      What is the scripture, "Therefore let the one who thinks he stands firm [immune to temptation, being overconfident and self-righteous], take care that he does not fall [into sin and condemnation]."

    3. Good points made through the scripture. I was not talkiung about those who are babes or someone who does not know the Lord. I have recently saw a video of a women singing in a service and she was wearing a dress so tight you could see what she was thinking. This is not only occuring with babes in Christ or those yet converted but it is happening from those who profess to be mature in Christ.

      I agree work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, but what about the man who is still a babe in Christ or who is yet converted we should also consider him as well. Also, if the example of modesty was prevalent in the church today young women, babes in Christ as well as those yet converted will have an example of how to dress.

      Titus 2:3-5 - 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

      1 Timothy 2:9-10King James Version (KJV) - 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

      1 Peter 3:1-5King James Version (KJV) - 3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
