If a man looks admiringly at a woman without thoughts of sex, is that adultery?


If, for example, I'm married and look at a woman, married or not admire her clothes or the way she looks after herself and not thinking of taking her to bed or doing anything to her is that committing adultery?


"But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28).

You are saying you are looking without lust, so there is no adultery.
