Pornography Is Not Love (part 1)

- June 11, 2005

The marriage bed is a blessed and beautiful place which God deems sacred. While such intimate expressions between husband and wife are good and godly, the misuse of sex and sexual desire is wrongful and harmful.

Pornographic displays, whether they be viewed on television, DVD, magazine or Internet, do not depict love-making or even love. What such things do reveal is mere hedonistic copulation and lust. Lust then provokes lust, and the viewer then begins to develop a taste and hunger for similar examples of lust and sensual pleasure.

As I am sure you have heard within your own social circle, such harmful desires often end up being a detriment to their own marriage and personal relationships, as well as having a damaging effect on one's emotional and spiritual well-being.

My dear friends, the human body was awesomely formed by the hand of God. Just as He calls us to goodness and purity, so too does this apply to our regard of the marriage bed and the opposite sex.

Perhaps you recall the familiar saying, "You are what you eat." The sentiment of this phrase proclaims that what you expose your mind and senses to is reflected in your words, actions, thought-process, spirit and heart. Fill a cup with dirty water and what happens when you drink it? You get sick! However, fill it with good and pure water, and it is a refreshing and healthy beverage!

My friends, God and His word are also our refreshment. Fill your soul with His living Word today, and be quenched!

Chad,

Great Post and so true.

Pornography is SIN! We must guard our eyes, once a heart is compromised it easily can run away into uncontrolled sin, because, enough is never enough.

Pro 27:20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.

Pornography is adultery! I have heard couples tell me that they watch it to "enhance" their relationship. LISTEN TO ME! It never makes a relationship between two people better by bringing in another person(s), even ones on a tv screen. This is lust! Pure and simple and it is adultery against you spouse or future spouse!

Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Pornography is sin which harms everyone involved, this is without exception.
If we could listen to scripture and obey, we would find real satisfaction in Him. All that He has provide far surpasses the fake that the Enemy tries to pass off to us. Only by following the Lord can we be loosed from the cords of our sin.

Pro 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
Pro 5:19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
Pro 5:20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
Pro 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Pro 5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

Almost without exception, child molesters, rapest and other committers of sexual crimes all started at an early age viewing pornography. It is sin, it is unhealthy, and it leads the viewer down the wrong path, into the way of destruction. Pornography harms everyone of us.

Thank you Chad for this post.

God Bless you,

Your Pastor T

Thanks' again Chad for not being afraid to talk about all the issue's that war against the purity of the Holy Spirit ! There is much to talk about on this subject , and the way pornography will quench the Holy Spirit in our live's . Many men I know struggle with this , and many men think it is no big deal . But I can almost assure everyone at TalkJesus that every man has been exsposed to pornography in some way in their live's . Mike

Chad,
i agree with you all the way!
I personally have viewed pornography. I advise everyone never to look at it. Becuz all it takes is one curious peek and you are hooked on it unless you get someone to keep you accountable.

Example: me I viewed it and i was hooked on it for about 8 months.....and thank god my mom found out. Otherwise I would have gotten involved in it for a very long time.
So.....never ever......view it.

The human body was meant ot be private. I hate how it is out there in the wide open.

Your lil bro in Christ.....

I ask GOD of this one great thing. The chance, from Heaven after the New Jerusalem comes down to the New Earth, a chance to...

Slap satan (while I'm in Heaven and satan's in hell). Ahh, the joy. Hmm, they market a corona on the islands as enjoyable? I'd rather go with slapping satan on behalf of the world.

Amen :)

But of course our great Savior did more, he DEFEATED SATAN.

I wanted to point out that porno is no longer just an issue for men, alot of women are becoming addicted to it.

There has been a moral decline in general what was once wrong is right and what once was right is now looked at as foolish nonsense. My prayer is for all who find porno as something good.

God Bless !
