I can't stop. I will go to confession soon. I don't think I need help. Everyone is doing it. What would my buddies think? Would they say I have gone the same sex way? Heck, we all grew up with Playboy Magazine didn't we? I think it helps me with my sex life with my wife or girlfriend. I only watch it once in a while it is not like I am addicted or something?
Most people, counselors, etc will try to tackle the watching of pornography from a sliding scale formula. Well, if you only do it once a month, or once a week you are probably not addicted, as if the addiction itself is the problem. I have been working with addicts for four decades and I can honestly tell you the problem is not their addictions or lack of addiction.
When you treat the addiction you are not treating the underlying cause of the addiction. And if you say you are not addicted because you only do something once in a while you are allowing Satan to be the Lord of your life for that period of time. Yes, most will not mention Satan, because they do not want to tell you the Truth. The Truth is that Satan wants to keep you from having the best. The best life, the best marriage, the best relationship with God, etc. Because Satan hates God and you. Until you get this deep down in your soul you will never grasp it with your intellect.
Was Hell created for you? No, it was created by God for Satan and His Demons. We choose ourselves to go there after a life of following them and giving into their temptations. God will never lead you into temptation only Satan does that so he can laugh at you and God. However, for those who know how the story ends we will have the last laugh.
Now, after I have scared some of you to stop reading or have made some of you think I am a looney cazoonie, I will continue.
The Word of God tells us that there is no temptation known to us that God will not help us with and deliver us from. All we need to do is to ask Him for the help when we are tempted.
OK, we become tempted and ask God for help and He takes our focus off the temptation or causes circumstances to change where you are unable to watch the porn, like your wife walking into the room!
But do you want to be constantly in this battle? Don't you want to have the power and freedom to stop every single sin you may want or unwilling want to commit? And with this the knowledge and conviction that you are no longer addicted and could never again be addicted even if you fell? Because once Jesus heals you, you are healed forever, Jesus does not take back His healings, we take back our sinning.
I beg of you to stop the rollercoaster ride of sinning and not sinning of being addicted or not being addicted. The Christian 12 Steps are available for you right here and right now, you do not have to pay for them (unless you order the workbook). They are here in printed form and on a Godtube presentation. Do not wait. Your freedom, your joy, your peace, your life, your family, and your relationship with God are far more important than you may presently believe.
Take the steps and you will not be sorry. Not one person who has ever gone through all 12 Steps with Jesus Christ has ever been disappointed. Jesus does not fail. He is all powerful and all merciful, so let yourself be healed today! Praise God thank You Jesus!
