We must overcome spiritual as well as carnal sin

"What benefit, brethren, is there from abstaining from fortification and other impure acts of the body and yet seek after glory and strive for money? The one corrupts the body, the other corrupts the soul. Moreover, glory from men and love for it makes us to be unbelievers, according to the word of the Lord when He say, "How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?" (John 5:44). What good is it to be innocent of homosexual acts, but to waste away from envy, hatred, and jealousy toward your neighbor? Hatred toward one’s brother makes him who feels it into a murderer, for the apostle says, "Any one who hates his brother is a murderer" (1 John 3:15). According to the sacred canons a sodomite and a murderer are subject to the same penalty, and if they fail to repent they will be subject to eternal condemnation." - St. Symeon the New Theologian
