ADDICTED TO PORN - IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY
A Conquering Faith ^

Posted on 05/23/2014 11:19:10 PM PDT by discipler

The destructiveness of porn isn't funny. Comedians may joke about it, but it's not funny when it is destroying trust in the marriage. It's not funny when the insatiable appetite to see more graphic sex leaves you without any desire for your loving wife. It's not funny when your daughter finds out what you have been doing. It's not funny when you realize the bottom feeders on the internet aren't giving their stuff away for free. They are planting viruses and malware on your computer. It's not funny when the graphic images invade your prayers. It's not funny when you are so ashamed that you can barely worship God. It's not funny when it robs you of your dignity. Break free of porn because it's not funny.

Are you addicted to porn? Porn mags? Porn websites? Porn movies? It's time to change and put the filth behind you.

How many marriages will be wrecked this week because of men looking at porn? Plenty. I once studied with a man for a year and he would not say that porn was wrong. It hurt his wife. I heard a woman relate to another woman the other day that she's decided that all men look at porn. It sounded like she was hopeless. Guess what, all men do not look at porn.

Christian men do not look at porn. Jesus said, "27 You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; 28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5. There are plenty of godly men who strive to be holy in the sight of God.

If you look at porn, you have a sinful addiction that could keep you from going to heaven. There has got to be a point in our lives where we put prayer ahead of the trash. Our eyes must be trained to be pure and look away from lusting over a woman.

PORN will destroy your soul. Porn will destroy your faith. Stop the porn. The filthbags in Hollywood have no shame. For the big bucks they strip on a movie set and do unmentionable things in front of a camera. That nastiness is copied on to DVD's. Why? Because men like to look through a camera lens and see on their flat screen TV what other people are doing.

Stop the porn. Draw near to God. Keep entrusting your soul to God. Pray and don't stop praying. When you are weak, pray. Study the Word of God and commit it to your heart. God will direct your steps if you let Him. Stop the porn because there's nothing funny about it.

Sincerely, Discipler

I have found that McAfee works pretty good.

It even blocks me from going to risky websites.

I fear that this is just the beginning. The restrainer has been removed. Our once pristine country has been turned into a garbage can of excess. The Internet is the beast out of the Earth and will continue to give glory to the beast out of the sea. Separate yourself from all wickedness, from those who call evil good, and good evil. Prepare for the role God has prepared for his Elect. We are sleeper cells for the Lord, awaiting further instructions. Selah

The pornography, as sometimes also things that have innocent uses, is being used as a weapon against you by the devil. Jesus is your friend; the devil is your enemy.

The sex appeal of the porn (or the prostitute) is a cheap imitation of the true love that comes only from God. God will not judge you for how you feel — but for what you do with what you have.

It’s more like God was pushed away. God won’t bless anywhere He is not invited to bless.

Even looking at a woman walking down the street with lust. Porn is indefensible but your point is impossible.

It is why Jesus literally had the skin whipped off His body and nails pounded through his bones and left to suffocate and die. This so that we are all forgiven if we accept His sacrifice.

Romans 3:23 (KJV)
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

ALL!

Not being able to complete perfection in this world is no excuse for not making sincere effort to draw near to the Perfector.

It matters to your reward. Do you want your mansion to be dog house sized?

You don’t think it’s possible to stop lusting? That’s pretty sad. Fix your eyes on Jesus, draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands sinners. Go and sin no more. I doubt that anyone is going to be perfect but sitting around looking at porn is practicing sin and John said in 1 John that Christians don’t do it. Respectfully

Looking at (lust) a woman as a potential sexual partner is a function of biology and any man that says they don’t do this is a liar.

That’s right.

No sin can keep a person out of heaven,
but his good works can.

Men give up everything and become
twice the son of @#!*% because of pride,
the foremost sin.

Give it up for the right reason -
thanksgiving for his sacrifice.

I just don’t get this whole porn thing. But, I’m a gal so maybe that has something to do with it.

I’ve seen some porn in my time. I can’t imagine becoming addicted to looking at it. I’d more likely become addicted to looking a pictures of delicious food like I used to do back in the day when I was a schoolgirl and I’d be starving for supper, looking through my mom’s magazines.

Just do not get porn.

“You don’t think it’s possible to stop lusting? That’s pretty sad. Fix your eyes on Jesus, draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you.”

****

Sounds like a certain demographic (not all) of single mothers who “find Jesus” as a surrogate Baby Daddy. How they just love Jesus. Far easier than marrying the biological fathers.

It’s similar to the so-called Christian Rock where the words “Jesus” and “God” are substituted for a real human being. “Can’t live without you [Jesus]” “Got to have you [Jesus],” etc.

In short, transferring the fixation of human biological sex drive onto a deity is an indication of mental illness rather than faith.

Sounds like Peyton Randolph sees all love as sexual. Christians don’t want to have sex with God - what a perverted mind to even suggest it. But we love with the greatest kind of love for our Creator. But like the godless in our society, I’m not surprised now to hear the specter of mental illness brought up in association with faith in God. You won’t even recognize the evil being wrought in the name of helping when people who love God are locked up for mental illness. To bring it up shows you are the one who’s detached from reality.

So what’s the real point here? You like your porn? Is that the reason for the attack on good people?

“Christians don’t want to have sex with God - what a perverted mind to even suggest it.”

****

There are some women who use “Jesus” as a substitute for a real relationship that includes sex. You could carry on a 30-minute conversation with them and think they were discussing a husband.

If anything, Jesus has become their porn, a substitute for a real relationship with a human being. Has nothing to do with salvation and everything to do with mental problems that make Jesus the object of unnatural affections.

Martin Luther recognized the absurdity of celibacy for Christ when he married a nun. That nuns even today wear a wedding ring symbolizing a marriage to Christ says volumes about that particular relationship.

This isn’t picking on religion. There are women who do the same thing with their pets. They attribute human characteristics to their cat or dog and claim no need for a relationship with a man because they have “Fluffy” or “Fido.”

It’s dysfunctional.

To tell someone to turn off their biological sex drive and replace it with “Jesus” is sick and twisted. Better to turn them to a relationship with a real human being for their physical needs and God for spiritual needs.

If you think having a relationship with Jesus is a substitute for having sex, you need therapy.

You are talking about something completely foreign to the Christian’s relationship to Christ. Yes, the nunnery and the catholic priesthood is not defenseable. That’s not the topic here. The topic is the godless perversion of you sitting before your computer doing unmentionable things while looking at somebody’s mother or daughter. That’s the point. Porn is epidemic. It’s unhealthy to normal relationships. It’s a break of trust. It’s sends a horrible message to your daughter. “Hey daddy, what are you looking at?....daddy, what are you doing!...daddy, why don’t you love mommy?”

I read about the rewiring of the brain and that porn rewires the brain. I don’t know how much stock to put in it. But I also read about homosexuals and pedophiles whos’ brains are wired differently than a heterosexual brain. The question and debate that people have is which comes first, the wiring and then the proclivity, or the proclivity and then the rewiring. I am of a mind to stand with the second group. Porn shouldn’t be understood. There’s no getting it any more than we can get any other evil.

Do a little research on imprinting

And be very thankful you weren’t exposed to all the porn and homo crap kids are exposed to today.
