thoughts as sins-ten commandments

I could never believe that a thought such as looking upon a friend's wife with natural human lust, is a "sin" or a breaking of a commandment. This is partly why Some branches of Christianty upset me.

Thoughts are thoughts and if a "bad" one slips in there, the best thing to do is let it go and not harbor it. As a child, I would ask God's forgiveness for thinking bad things about my schoolmate who had no manners and cut the water fountain line. I would pray, over and over, that I be purged of the sexual feelings I had at age 10 because that was "wrong". This is partly why I am agnostic today.

Thoughts are not sins - actions are. The Ten Commandments are laws.

Are you a "chosen" one, Lou? Is this why you feel compelled to tell this story?
