Take Porn By The Horn


This was written by Michael Pearl, our favorite Bible teacher, who has never looked at pornography.  He is very hard hitting which may offend some of you but I think we need it!

Here is some very valuable advice from him ~

I never erase my web history. Someone else does it for me after examining it. Someone may ask, “What is wrong, don’t you trust yourself?” My answer to them is, I want my wife to trust me. I want my son-in-law to trust me. I want you to trust me, and I want to make myself accountable to someone—just as you should.

I don’t trust anyone who erases his own web history on a regular basis. Just think about it. God keeps a file of all web searches. Nothing is ever erased, except your entire past sins history when you got saved. After that, in the day of the judgment seat of Christ, you will give an account for every deed done in your body {II Cor. 5:10}. No amount of confession and sorrow will prevent you from having to answer for every deed since you got saved.

By the way, I passed. I have never viewed as much as one single porno image on any computer—ever! My Lord and my wife deserve no less. Having done what is required of me, I am just an unprofitable servant; I have only done that which was my duty to do {Luke 17:10}, as any normal Christian does.

Dear lady, if your husband’s office was in the same building as a strip joint, just one curtained glass door separating him from the view, would you be comfortable trusting him to never pull back the curtain and look in on the smut? Would you trust your young untested sons—even when you are gone to the store, and they are there alone? That is exactly what the web is—a ready window to the most vile pornography that the devil and his demons can produce. It is pure Sodom and Gomorrah. And it is right there in your home, all the time, waiting day and night to reach though the screen and grab the lusts of a boy or man. I avoid it like Hell.

I cannot say this too forcefully. You are gullible beyond belief if you have in your home a computer with access to the web and it is not on a password, completely inaccessible to your sons. Every single boy from eight to sixteen years old—without exception—will get on the web and look at porn if he can find the opportunity. He will get up in the middle of the night. He will play sick and sneak in when you are gone to the store for medicine. He will arrive home early, stay up late, rise before you do, or go to a friend’s house and get on their computer when they are not home.

If you are the best parent and child trainer, with the best of spiritual instruction, and the finest education, and your sons view pornography on the web, you have wasted your time. You lose. They lose. God loses. The devil wins.

Christian men develop the fortitude and discipline to obey God and walk in holiness against all temptation, but few boys before the age of eighteen have that kind of discipline.

Any husband that expects his wife to “trust him” is a scoundrel. Never put your wife in the position to have to depend on blind trust. Make every moment a walk in the light. I take my wife everywhere, or else she knows where I am and who I am with every moment. Every Christian man should invite his wife or a friend to view his web history on a regular basis. Every computer should be in a public place or facing an open door {or a glass door} where the wife and kids can see what is on the screen. A man who refuses to do so is guilty of something, if only pride.

Dear Christian brother, make yourself accountable to your wife and your friends. Sweet, gullible mother, get as mad as a mother goose and protect your boys and men.

This is me again...Wives, ask your husband every morning if there was even a hint of sexual immorality in his life the day before.  If he is a Christian man who walks in holiness, he will want to be held accountable.  He needs to be held accountable, if he will let you.

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, 
let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.
Ephesians 5:3

My youngest son who takes obedience to God as a very serious thing has
this Bible verse on his computer screen ~

I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.
Psalm 101:3
