My friends from other beliefs here, say, "It's sin to have a second look at a woman"
Which means, the first sight can be accidental , so god wouldnt punish. But if you make a second attempt to look at her, it's lustful. That you are consciously looking at her with an intent.
So our clever folks do a visual-rape at the first sight itself. They wouldn't blink until they see through everything and complete the "Simulation" program.

I'm just dead impressed that he knew the quote. I'd have struggled and I'm a theology graduate!
Having said that, it is one of the least understood quotes in the the Gospels. If, instead of 'the Sermon on the Mount' it was entitled, 'Jesus does stand-up' it would be far nearer the truth. The point is that Jesus is sending up the Pharisees and the like who believe that you only get to heaven if you are scrupulously righteous and obey the Torah in every detail. By showing what that would actually entail (cutting your own hands off or putting out your own eyes to avoid the merest possibility of sin, for example) Jesus ridicules the very notion of a righteous man and salvation by personal holiness. So this passage on adultery is not an extension of the injunction but a recognition of the sheer impossibility of meeting the standard it requires. We are, it turns out, only human, and Jesus, like all good comedians, invites his audience to share the joke!
