Hi, guys —

Yesterday I was searching for information about a series I am watching and I checked my social media. I happened to see the picture of two boys kissing.

  • Did I commit a sin?

I don't know what I am supposed to do, especially when it happened again today. I am confused. I confessed a few days ago and I feel really bothered by this situation.

Thank you for your time.

May God bless you.

Paul replied:

Dear Wiktoria,

Sin is an act of the will.

Unless you deliberately sought sexual material for the sake of lust, or intentionally entertained thoughts in your head for the same end, I don't see any sin however it's always good to take something to Confession when you are not sure.
