The Sermon On The Mount: Adultery And Lust

27 "You have heard that it was said, "You are not to commit adultery.' 28 But I say to you, anyone who stares at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 So if your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your body parts than to have your whole body thrown into hell.
