Having lived in a completely different culture for 10 months now, yesterday I found myself really stressing over some of things people do here. Here in Bogota they have something called “transmilenio” which summed up would be the bus equivalent of the London underground or the New York Subway. I have to say I’m impressed with the system here as it seems to be really organized (compared to the other transport options available) which is a real surprise but there are a few flaws which I’m still not sure if its related to the system or if it’s just the people being inconsiderate.
Last night I went out on a date with my wife-to-be to the cinema, so we jumped onto the transmilenio went and watched a movie and had a great time. Now after the movie we were waiting at the station to get the right bus and there was a huge cue. There were three very clear lines to get onto the bus which had been organized by the staff members. Most of us would have just got in a line a wait right? But obviously that would’ve meant people having to wait and as soon as the bus arrived, I kid you not, nearly 150 people pushed there way onto this bus without any consideration to the other people involved. I was at the front of the cue and was able to get in early to see everyone rush on as if their lives depended on it. While I was watching I saw a group of people getting hurt as a result of everyone pushing on and this got me thinking about the consequences of consuming porn. Just like the people trying to force their way on the bus, they take no time to see whose being hurt around the edges.
A lot of the time I hear people who consume porn say that it’s not hurting anyone but months later they are having huge problems with their marriage. Just like the people forcing themselves on the bus and actually hurting the people around them, Some of you maybe be so deep in the consumption of porn that you have brought that lie, “It’s not hurting anyone” but as you read some of the stories or watch the videos on XXXChurch.com you will see that porn consumption is hurting the people in the videos, yourself, your partner, your children and its hurting God.
Maybe today is the day to start your healing and to stop your hurting and head over a take part in X3Watch.The aim of X3Watch is to enable men and women to conquer sexual issues like pornography addiction and sex addiction and regain control of their lives. The primary objective of the X3Pure project is to enable a speedy and effective recovery for men dealing with Internet pornography and other sex-related addictions in the most confidential and professional manner possible.
Maybe now is the time to let healing and freedom reign into your household?
