PORN KILLS LOVE

Pornography- printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.

Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, And revive me in Your ways. Psalm 119:37

Porn is a big “trend” now a days. It is an addiction. People see porn as many things. Some view it as a sexual education, some view it as a need, others view it as satisfaction, etc.  Why is porn so “cool”?

Is there a clear understanding of the effects of porn?

When you view porn it is taking away your purity. It is creating wounds in your heart. It is giving in to temptation of the devil. It hurts your partner for many reasons: It creates unrealistic expectations in your real life that cannot be fulfilled because what you are viewing is computerized (aka NOT reality), it is degrading, it gives your partner low self esteem, it makes “making love” just a recreational sport of sex, creates relationship problems and is the reason for so many endings, makes your partner feel like they aren’t good enough therefore they think it is their fault you are watching porn, etc.

Let me tell you simply,

PORN KILLS LOVE.

Porn is a temptation from Satan. Jesus tells us that He will never let us experience any temptation that we cannot overcome.

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Think about porn in another light…

Pornography models most of the time (according to studies) do not enjoy their jobs, but find that is the only way they can make money. Pornography models are not just adults, they are children too. Which means these kids assume the same horrid effects as the adult models. They are often abused and raped. By watching pornography it fuels the sex industry. The sex industry is human trafficking, prostitutes. Many people see this as a life choice and call these women derogatory names. This is not always the case. Majority of the women out there are miserable, beaten up, sexually abused, owned by a pimp, forced into this labor, and more. It is not a lifestyle that is just naturally chosen. Pornography feeds into the sex industry.

So, point is, by watching porn it is supporting human trafficking, taking women’s lives from them.

Good news!! Jesus doesn’t hold grudges! His grace is enough to cover our sins! He creates beauty from ashes.
Jesus offers us a freedom from our sin, our guilt, and shame. He replaces all of that with His joy and love. He died on the cross for this and for ALL sins.

If you are struggling with pornography, it’s very likely that you feel dirty, ashamed, unworthy, etc. I strongly encourage you to just go to Jesus and talk to him about it. He will wipe your slate clean and He will help you to fight off Satan in this battle for your spirit. Don’t be too ashamed to talk to God. He doesn’t view you as the sinner you are- He views you as the way He intended for you to be. Talking to Him about your temptations will only help you to get closer to God’s perfect version of you.
