Flee From Pornography

There is a drug in town that is more treacherous than anything I’ve seen before. Pornography is a viper from hell and is hard to stop. Stay away from it at all costs. Once you go down this road you are not only leaving your family behind but God as well. It kills families. It makes you weak. It makes you do things you wouldn’t normally do. It makes you act out differently. You start hiding things from others. You start lying and don’t even realize it. It makes you treat others badly. It tears at your inner soul. It takes you from God and leads you to hell. Satan is having fun toying with people’s lives with this drug. If you are tied to pornography, REPENT. Fulfilling your inner lusts is not worth it. These evil men and women are seductresses. Don’t give into their flattery. If you are involved, give it up now or you will have to deal with the consequences later. To live in sin is a life separated from God. I know this because pornography did all this to me. At the time, my relationship with my wife was rocky and I justified it. I’d tell myself that nobody really knows. It was my secret. What I want you to know is that this lifestyle is not a secret at all. The way you live is a mirror image of who you are inside. If you are treating others badly there is something wrong in your life. God knows all.

During this addiction I’d pray on occasion but I always felt empty. It felt like nobody was listening. What was really happening was my lifestyle had invited Satan in. God can’t dwell in unholy tabernacles and for that reason He was nowhere to be found. It wasn’t until I made a choice to change my life that things changed. I decided to go to church. I started reading the Bible. I started writing in my journal. I changed the music I listen to. I changed the type of TV I tuned into. I put filters on my web browsing. I took a sexual purity class. But most importantly, I changed my prayer habits. Many times in the day I’d just look up into heaven and talk to God. I’d listen to music and then start praising Him. At night I’d reach my hands up to heaven as I spoke to Him. The Lord meant more to me than anything else. Overtime, I started hating pornography. Thoughts still come in my mind but it is easier now to cast them out. With the Lord’s help we can do anything. Even a life of sin can be turned upside down. I felt the Lord’s forgiveness in my life and anyone else with this addiction can too. Jesus gives hope for the lost. Come to Him and you will find true joy. He is waiting for you with arms wide open. He will take you back into His unfailing grace. Fall in love with the Lord and you will feel His grace.

Proverbs 6:24-29
24 To keep you from the evil woman, From the flattering tongue of a seductress.
25 Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, Nor let her allure you with her eyelids.
26 For by means of a harlot A man is reduced to a crust of bread; And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.
27 Can a man take fire to his bosom, And his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one walk on hot coals, And his feet not be seared?
29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; Whoever touches her shall not be innocent.
