Porn on the Brain

  1. Looking at pornography is committing adultery. Jesus said that if someone looks at another to lust after that person that he (or she) has already committed adultery in his (or her) heart. It is cheating on one's spouse with another, preferring another to one's spouse. The marriage bed is defiled. And, it can't be restored unless there is true repentance, and the man or woman stops cheating, in the power of the Spirit, by faith in Jesus Christ and what he did in putting sin to death on the cross, and by daily putting on the armor of God with which to fight off Satan's evil attacks against us. Yet, we must know that Jesus Christ already won this battle against sin, and he has made a way of escape for us out from under the temptation, so we don't ever have to give in. We can be completely free by the grace of God, if we choose to be. And, we can have our marriages healed if those who are cheating with pornography, and/or with having private conversations with others without the knowledge of one's spouse, etc. repent of their sins, and return to follow their Lord in obedience, and return to pursuing their spouses as the only love of their lives. Too many marriages are falling apart because of people having private internet access and giving in to pornography or to private conversations with people of interest, et al.

  2. This is really good. I agree with him in his prayer at the end of what he shared about his own struggle and how God gave him victory.

  3. I personally think anyone who participates in porn has intimacy issues. They don't want to expose their heart for fear of being hurt perhaps. The question needs to be raised within themselves, "Why do I do this, and why this rather than be with a living person?" I feel it a betrayal of the marriage, especially if the prospective marriage couple discussed prior to marriage and one was adamant of not wanting it a part of their life, openly told the other and both agreed. What happens when you find out that your now spouse has been hiding it for years, even found pictures of this content on your child's computer? Grounds for Divorce? Jesus said, unless there is marital unfaithfulness is one allowed to divorce. It's a betrayal unfathomable, and a hurt that never goes away. When you are most intimate with your spouse and find something like that - you always wonder, "is he bringing those pictures to mind while he's with you?" I don't understand this, and honestly I don't want to, even though I try.
