causes us to sin

Question from Anonymous on 3/22/2008:

Does "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell" mean that whatever is causing us to sin we need to eliminate from our lives?

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 3/26/2008:
It would certainly mean that if something were evil or an occasion of sin for someone but not necessarily in all instances, when something is morally neutral or good. I would want concrete examples of what you had in mind.
