Is Gazing a sin?

So I was leaving church this morning & as I was making my way to get into my crappy old pickup truck, I caught sight of a lady walking behind me on the way to her car in the parking lot I presumed...She caught my eye & I took pause. I was struck by her beauty...dumbfounded, she is jaw dropping good-looking. That happens alot here in Texas. The Babes-per-sqaure-mile is more than we brag it is. I didn't stare. I tried to look away from her into my truck, but I think I was busted. I hope she didn't notice, but if she's half as observant as she is fine, how could she not have noticed my gaze. I didn't try to approach her, speak w/ her or anything that would be too forward of me & maybe inappropriate because I am still married to the girl of my dreams who left me >3years ago. So, does anyone think it's wrong/sinful of me that I can't get that lady from church out of my mind?
I'm sure she probably disregarded/forgot my gaze before she made it to her car & hasn't given it another thought. She's probably used to it must happen all the time. Why am I asking y'all for moral, ethical advice?

well according to some pastor i heard once Jesus said that if you do an act of sin in your thoughts its just as bad as doing it in real life. i say "according to some pastor" because i don't actually know where that is in the Bible. maybe if i looked it up i'd find it, but there ya go. so uhm.... i'll let you decide what that means.

What the bleedin' cock? Let me get this right... you're asking us whether looking at a really hot babe is a sin? Because, well.... no!

Reality check - girls LIKE being appreciated for their beauty. If you want my moral and ethical advice then it is this: get your mind out of the bible and into the real world.

Just an opinion.

My thoughts exactly. Life is too short to follow someone else's rules.

I really didn't want to start a morality debate...I was just thinking outloud about something that was bugging me about myself.

Since you brought it up, runangl: The scripture I think you're referring to is Mathew: Chapter 5; verses 27-30 & I'm cool with that because I wasn't "lusting" after the lady I noticed, just gazing. It would be bad of me if I had made her feel uncomfortable. I don't think she even noticed/cared. Hope I don't get banned because of this. I've already been labelled a creep because I'm 42 years old, so getting ousted for being a Christian would be a rejection that I would just have to learn to accept.

Peace be with y'all

I dont think you'd be banned for being a Christian, unless Baz is satan himself.

Ah. Is there much of a difference between that and Santa Claus? Cause I don't know if that's so attractive.

if you really thought i was serious about the implications of going to hell... well then you don't really know me, do you? hahah

i'm pretty much one of the most sarcastic people i know. =/

anyways... whatever values you hold are fine by me, to each his own - or if it tickles your fancy more: whatever blows your skirt up, hun.
