A friend of mine is a Christian.  He likes collecting pinup posters of sexy women and porn stars.  What would God's opinion be on this?  He sees women as art and not as sex objects not to say sex is a sin.  It's just that women are the ultimate art.

You might get several opinions each supposed to be by god. As far as the friend; rationalization. women: object d'art. Of course the pictures are of airbrushed women. Nothing of substance.  I'm willing to bet not one woman is soft and curvy. Or is real.
Is the friend married? How is his wife's self- esteem? Some women don't mind, true. Maybe she likes it. In general, women don't.

Um, am I the only one connecting the dots here?  I get Playboy magazine for the articles, too.  Your friend needs to be honest with himself.  Pinup girls are selling their sexuality regardless of how tasteful the photo is.  Tell him to get some fully clothed women to admire if he is worried about his relationship with God.

Perhaps you ought to read the Bible yourself and find out just what God does think rather than rely on others to read and think for you.  How will you know if what they  tell you is the truth or if they are putting a personal slant on it?  For that matter, how will you know if what they were telling you is even in the Bible?

Maybe check out the "Song of Solomon" (or "Song of Songs").

The bible says if you even so much as look at another woman with lust in your eyes.. You have committed adultery in your heart.

Such a male point of view.  It makes a lot of difference to the woman in question!

I'll bet he only considers young and "sexy" women to be ultimate art.  How is he going to treat to his wife in 30 or 40 years?  Trade her in for a younger model?

Then, there is me: Yeah, but if you go back to the first in order of the two mutually exclusive Genesis creation myths, you find that God is not singular but  plural ("Let us make man in our image, after our likeness") and that this image was of both male and female ("He created him; male and female He created them").  The notion of "God" being a male I would consider as being misogyny. It was a "male's god" for a "male's world." Quite anachronistic in modern times, I would hope!

The Matthew 5:28 injunction against lusting is Jewish in origin and deals with the commandment "You must not covet your neighbor's wife." It wasn't unique to "Jesus."
