The Christian Porn Addict – Pornography Part 4

Of all the issues about pornography, this one is the worst:

Christians consuming porn.

The Bible calls it fornication. Jesus took it a step further and said that it was adultery. And, our churches are full of adultery and fornication. In fact, we are so full of wickedness and evil that we are indistinguishable from non-Christians.

I am heartbroken over this. We have corrupted ourselves horribly, and God’s Wrath MUST come upon us because He is just. If you think otherwise, you haven’t been reading your Bible.

And yes, you need to be reading your Bible.

The Porn-ified Brain – Pornography Part 3

Let’s dig deeper into what pornography does to the brain. I gave you my own experience with pornography. So, let’s look at some science and statistics that tell us about what happens to a brain that is being assaulted by pornography.

And yes, it is an assault.

Those who have been caught by pornography, are being assaulted and abused. Their minds. Their brains. Their relationships. Their sense of reality. It’s all being abused by this foul creature that we call pornography.

Worse, far worse, your spiritual life and your destiny in heaven is under assault.

This is Your Brain on Pornography – Pornography Part 2

I mourn for my country.

We have not only destroyed ourselves, but we’ve also destroyed our ability to escape the destruction that we have invited upon ourselves. Even though we recognize the problem, there is no chance for us to actually turn our society back to what it once was.

I’m afraid that only through our fall, will there be any hope. And, I believe that the biggest reason for our fall is pornography. It’s not the first reason. It’s not the reason that opened the door to our destruction. But, it’s still the biggest reason…

…because it touches everyone.

God LOVES His Children

As the evil goes from victory to victory in these dark days, it is easy to forget that God had not changed, and that He still loves us as much now, as He did when He sent His Son to die for us. And, the idea that the Creator would come to Earth to die for us, to give us eternal life…

I can barely comprehend such a love as that.

And, He STILL loves us with that kind of passion. Still. Right now. No matter what is going on around you, and in your life.

We Forgot that God is JUST

One of the most pernicious movements to sweep the church is this idea that God is a kindly old man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and is willing and ready to overlook any and all sin. Along with it came an easy-believism and permission to ‘follow your heart’.

Truth was optional, and the Old Testament didn’t reflect God, anymore.

What we forgot in the process was that God doesn’t change. Ever. We forgot that the sins that made Him angry four thousand years ago, make Him angry today.

We forgot that God is JUST.

Patriotism vs. God

Can you be a Christian and a Patriot?

Before you answer that question, let me remind you that you cannot be a follower of Christ, if you love ANYTHING more than God. In fact, the best definition of idolatry is the love of something, more than God.

So, are you a patriot?

Of course, your answer might change a bit if that nation is truly following God. The problem is that there isn’t any nation today that follows God, so the issue is moot. And, I’m afraid that I haven’t dealt with this question as well as I should, in my own life.

TRUTH – Our Biggest Challenge

We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.

That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.

So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.

An Era of Insanity

Very little in our world seems to make sense. It’s as if the people around us are living in an alternate reality, vastly different from the one that you and I live in. And, it is that insanity that will destroy the world.

Worse, the insanity is so great, so broad and so deep, that pointing it out to those who suffer from it, will get you nowhere. They are caught in the grip of madness, and we would do well to stay as far from its grasp as possible.

If you think that you aren’t vulnerable, think again.

Appointments from God

We get them. All of us.

In fact, you might even say that the founding of America was one of them.

The problem is that they are often not what we want them to be, or what we expected. And, that’s a problem because we often try to skip those appointments because they don’t fit our idea of what a ‘proper appointment’ should be.

You’ve probably had lots of those if you are a follower of Christ.

If you AREN’T a follower of Christ, there’s one truly awful appointment that you will not avoid, unless you become one.

You Need To Take It Back

We have allowed our lives to become cluttered with lies and fantasy. We built castles in the air and filled them with pipe dreams. Our grandparents dreamed of a glorious future, and our parents shared those glorious dreams with us. And, we bought it.

We invested ourselves in the promise of shiny new toys in a glorious future. We put the one-eyed god in our living rooms and allowed its soothing propaganda wash over us. We handed over the minds of our precious children to the government and worshiped at Hollywood’s temples.

But, you’ve begun to wake up. You’ve started to realize that something is wrong. You’ve finally realized that you paid too much for something worthless, so there’s only one thing to do:

You Need To Take It Back.
