What is porn addiction?
- Adultery - Infidelity, unfaithfulness.
- Coveting - Strong desire to have what is not your own.
- idolaltry - the worship of false gods. It is to place a false source of pleasure and consolation upon a pedistool.
Remember the First commandment? ‘You shall have no other gods before me’.
Porn is like the porn addicts god. It soothes him when bored or in trouble. When feeling sorry for self. Porn is where he goes when he is sad or blue. Or angry or frustrated. … But,
We are told to bring ALL our cares to God, and yet we have been decieved into thinking that our idol can help us better than He can.
Sin, sins, and sinners
Your problem is deeper than mere porn addiction. Fact is, that ALL of our ‘faults’ are related to eachother. They all extend from the same ‘inherent’ disorder.
Sin is anything contrary to God and His Word
For example, God says in the sixth commandment, ‘You shall not murder’. So, murder is a sin.
Jesus said, If a man looks at a woman, to lusts after a her, he has comitted Adultery [the 7th commandment] ALREADY!
But Sin is also used to describe a condition. We are ‘by nature’ prone to sin, and therfore sinners by nature.
Since you are here, you are probably struggling with porn addiction, and recognize how difficult it is to defeat if you don’t know how to do it, so you can stop it.. This is because you cannot defeat it alone. No one can!
Turn from Sin and Trust in God
Recognize that you are a sinner.
Turn from sin to God, and cry out ‘Forgive me, a sinner, Oh God!’
Believe that Jesus is the One Whom God has sent to ‘save His people from their sins’ through the cross, and is RISEN!
Get into a good Church
Then, Read and believe your Bible
All those outside of Christ [not trusting in Him] remain under the power of sin, under the threat of eternal damnation, under penalty of the law of God, but …
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For those trusting in Jesus, the power of sin is truly broken, though we must still struggle against it.
