LIST What Matters To You Most And Ask “Is Porn Worth Giving Up These Things For?”
If you continue to view pornography you are putting in jeopardy everything that matters most to you in life. God cannot be number one if you are viewing pornography. You cannot love your wife and children the way God intended if you are viewing porn. Porn demands first place! God demands first place. The two are mutually exclusive. “This attraction threatens everything I hold dear.”
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
MASTURBATION Must Be Addressed As a Sinful Sexual Activity When Accompanied By Porn or Lust
It is not possible to masturbate, with an image of pornography in your mind or while viewing porn and not sin. This is highly enslaving.
I Corinthians 6:12
“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.”
“You say, ‘I am allowed to do anything’—but not everything is good for you. And even though ‘I am allowed to do anything,’ I must not become a slave to anything.”-nlt
“You know the next commandment pretty well, too: ‘Don’t go to bed with another’s spouse.’ But don’t think you’ve preserved your virtue simply by staying out of bed. Your heart can be corrupted by lust even quicker than your body. Those leering looks you think nobody notices—they also corrupt. Let’s not pretend this is easier than it really is. If you want to live a morally pure life, here’s what you have to do: You have to blind your right eye the moment you catch it in a lustful leer. You have to choose to live one-eyed or else be dumped on a moral trash pile.”- the message
