Tao Bible - Isaiah 26:9

With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
~ King James version ~

There is no greater sin than desire,
~ from Verse 46 of the Tao Te Ching ~
Christians seem to have a love-hate relationship with desire. In general, it's b-a-d -- unless your desire concerns God, then it's g-o-o-d.

From the Taoist perspective, desire isn't good, regardless of what or whom we are desirous of.
