How do I know if I have sinned in my thoughts? After all, we cannot control our thoughts.

Question:

How do I know if I have sinned in my thoughts? After all, we cannot control our thoughts.

Answer:

We sin in our thoughts when we deliberately entertain(ponder, meditate upon) thoughts we know to be impure or otherwise immoral. Fleeting impure or immoral thoughts that cross our mind without conscious deliberation are better classified as “temptations” and should be rejected.
