Pornography Affects You!!!

A friend's husband had an addiction to pornography.  They were not Christians, but she was very unhappy about it.  They went to a psychologist who told them that pornography was fine and dandy.  It's not!  You are fooling yourself if you believe that.  What you put into your mind affects your life!

My sister was telling me that you should be asking any potential suitors for your daughter, "When was the last time you dabbled in pornography?", not "If you have?" since the majority of men do.  She says that question usually catches them by surprise, but women have the right to know if their future husband dabbles in it.

I think it is a good thing to ask and keep the men in our lives accountable.  Pornography is so easy to get now...One click of a mouse.  But it is harmful, very harmful.  It changes the chemistry in the brain, so much so that some men who are very addicted can't enjoy sex with a normal woman.  That is very sad.

The Bible tells us to "Flee sexual immorality" for a good reason.  So flee it!  Don't have anything to do with it.

Charles Spurgeon wrote this ~ 

Sin is a conquered foe to every soul in union with Jesus. There is no sin which a Christian cannot overcome if he will only rely upon his God to do it. They who wear the white robe in heaven overcame through the blood of the Lamb, and we may do the same. No lust is too mighty, no besetting sin too strongly entrenched; we can overcome through the power of Christ. Do believe it, Christian, that thy sin is a condemned thing. It may kick and struggle, but it is doomed to die. God has written condemnation across its brow. Christ has crucified it, "nailing it to His cross." Go now and mortify it, and the Lord help you to live to His praise, for sin with all its guilt, shame, and fear, is gone.

Believe this to be true and never give up!

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.  I Corinthians 6:18
