Word of the Day - 3/24/2009


Concupiscence is sexual desire; lust.

Jesus said that any man who looked at a woman with concupiscence committed adultery in his heart.

but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:28, NASB)

A related word is Cupid, the ancient Roman god of love.
