Beyond Today: Stopping the Addiction with Porn

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Pornography has always been around but now it's a widespread crisis. Many counselors warn this addiction is an epidemic. Roughly 40 million Americans regularly visit porn web sites. Someone else's problem? Not anymore. Pornography has invaded the hearts and homes of your family, your friends, and your co-workers. Its an eight billion dollar a year business. Do you realize there are more outlets for porn in this country than there are McDonald's restaurants? From the moment we get up in the morning, until we sleep at night, we're bombarded with erotic images and messages. Billboards, clothing, commercials, magazines by the checkout counter, TV, movies, and with the internet, porn is only a click away. Yes, it's accessible, it's affordable, it's anonymous, but pornography is wrong. It degrades women, it harms the morality of a decent society, it demeans marriages, it damages children. Your Bible says that because of sin, sex has been misused and abused. Isn't it true? Pornography is a distortion. It distorts God's good gift of sex which should be shared only within the bounds of marriage. Scripture condemns the results of porngraphy: prostitution, adultery, beastiality, homosexuality, and incest. We need to root it out at the source. Where's that? The mind. If this is your problem, admit you have a problem. Get the help that you need. Begin to control your thoughts. Don't buy into the lies of pornography. There are awful consequences for looking at porn. Don't learn to practice lust. Don't live in a fantasy world of evil thoughts. Don't be led down the destructive path of perversion. There's a better way. Turn to the truth of your Bible and don't let pornography ruin your life. For Beyond Today, I'm Steve Myers.
