The Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:8 says, “whatever is true, whatever is right whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Certainly, by any reasonable measure, pornography is not any of these things! Looking at pornographic material can lead to sins of the flesh, lust for desires and despicable abhorrent behavior. The Bible repeatedly warns us against such activity. First Corinthians 6:18-19 urges us to flee from sexual immorality and tells us that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies and our minds are to be kept clean for a dwelling place of God’s Spirit.
It is a fact that pornography messes up one’s mind and becomes an addiction so powerful that can impact the lives of everyone around you. It ultimately prevents you from having normal intimate relationships as God designed in a marriage. Pornography is a temptation of Satan whose objective is to destroy you and your Christian faith. The good news is that God always provides a way out to flee from any temptation.
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.1 Corinthians 10:13
So, if you are struggling with pornography, ask God to free you from your addiction to these impure images in the name of Jesus. Christ death on the cross and his resurrection provides forgiveness from sin, freedom from addiction and the promise of eternal life! Seek Jesus and live!
