Unfortunately these days I see too much being stretched to (a meaningless) absurdity. Some words will never spring back and where we go from UltraMegaSupratacular Miracle vacuum bags with New Babe Attractor inserts is anyones guess.
I can appreciate the effort to deter people from allowing destructive and lustful thoughts to flourish. They desensitize, take root and tempt, sometimes better than reality. "Thought control" can have different meanings as well I suppose.
As a young man, I had heard Christians claim that the ACT of homosexuality, not the thoughts which you can't control, was the Real sin and celibacy became an option. A brief option, as I could not stop the thoughts, God didn't help, and, as per the 'guilty is as guilty thinks' admonition, I acted.... And have wondered of those tormented with uncontrolable thoughts of worse things. Much worse things and can't help but believe angry, vengeful 'serve my boss right' fantasys (ideally cut off at the root) are better (easier to forgive/less sinful/could be worse) than actually doing it. If they are Truley equal, I wouldn't tell any boarderline, holding back, pseudo believers that. It can work the other way and not inspire inner discipline, but a what the *$&/@!` I'm guilty anyway justification... Do you believe all sin is equal?
The inner world indeed must be healed for any real change to take hold in the shared one. My hesitation with your definitions stem from the possible double edge swing in the other direction once all not nice thoughts or actions are lumped together. It is not me you need to lead to passivity but the clouded mind who wouldn't fathom any of this and may just see it as green light.
