Are your eyes causing you to sin?
Are you a Christian addicted to PORN and masturbation?
Reasons why Christians feel they can do it:
Reasons they should not do it:
Is porn adultery?
Let’s go to the commandment
In words you can understand. Don’t desire something that is not yours. What is Porn, looking at females and desiring to be with them? You don’t need any more explaining, God it’s clear in this subject.
Let’s go to Job.
Sure I understand, Job was a near perfect men, we are not. This is God’s pattern of a good man, this is also a good sample where God knows what area men where going to struggle in.
The stages of the fall of typical men are:
Ear - The strange woman and her power of seduction with words. A woman will try to seduce you with words, many men fall because they don’t hear complements from their wives. Men struggle with porn because they don’t communicate with their wives about the areas where they are tempted. This is why phone sex is so popular. Many men fall for woman that are not better looking, but more attentive that their own wife.
Eyes – The temptation in the mind is followed by the eyes. The eyes imagine what the mind has already pictured.
2 Peter 2:14
Matthew 5:29 - Matthew 18:9 - Mark 9:47
Can you believe that these three verses where considered to strong for everyday people and the Bible was kept in Latin and not translated to a common language because leaders thought that simple minded farmers will take it and mutilate themselves. Keep your eyes in check since the have the power to slave and kill you.
1 John 2:16
Heart – The heart desired the image the mind places before it. The heart create evil thoughts that can lead men astray.
The body follows the heart to its own destruction.
Nature - It is in our nature. If men are allowed to go wild they will all follow their flesh, it takes strength and self control to walk in a way pleasing to God.
Body – By the time it gets to the body, the battle is already lost. The real battle is in the heart. It is more of a mental battle than a physical need. Just like smoking, drinking, and drugs. People can’t stop even when little by little it starts to destroy their walk with God. It is incredible to think than more people that you know in Christian circles are addicted to it. Now with Cable, Internet, and newsstands everywhere the tramps are set to destroy all our precious lives. A pure men’s soul is precious in God’s eyes.
Life – There is a bounty for your life, precious to God and desired by Satan. Imagine a wanted sign with your photo in it. You might not believe it but Satan will always look to tempt you.
Is sinning against our body better or worst? There is a higher level of sin associated to the sin we do to our body. With as many sexually transmitted diseases that are around. They are a direct result of the higher standard that God requires from us. Are there not many TV commercials about couples in which one is infected with Herpes and one is not? This is a secret shame of the so real evidence of this sin in a life.
1 Corinthians 6:18
What to do? If men are addicted and are in a continual process of falling and asking forgiveness, there are two solutions. Stick to your word and don’t do it again. Many pray I won’t do it again only to do it over and over again. Keep your promise because…
There will be a day when God’s patience will run out and men’s secret sins will be exposed. Don’t be fooled, your spirit radiates the sin within yourself. Until men bound by these are set free, they will always give everybody they meet a sense of uneasiness and warped walk.
It is a struggle but not impossible, God desires all the chosen ones called to his service walk pure lives. He is patient and creative, He will spare you the shame of your sin exposed unless there is no other way to reach you.
1 Timothy 5:24-25
Is there a place for porn amongst married couples? No. It’s sad to say that in our lifetime what we see in television is declining to worst and worst depictions of sexual and obscene scenes. A Christian couple should be very careful what they see and allow their children to see in television.
The New Testament and Jesus demand a higher level of devotion, don’t even look at a woman lustfully, it is equal to committing adultery with her.
Use common sense, nothing that feels your heart will guilt could be good.
Men cannot serve God with all this evil in them. There is no place in God’s plan for a Christian’s life for Porn. God want your commitment. Jesus is asking men “are you with me? Men will serve what would appear to be successful lives only to fall an expose themselves. This is Satan’s plan to destroy the image of leaders amongst the church and discredit all of then.
Make little ones sin, Many men are addicted and influenced by porn because they where accidentally or intentionally exposed to it by others.
By using your money to buy Porn, you are financing places that are corrupting children. There is only to mentions of people in the Bible getting extra punishment for their sinful lives. Only Judas, and those that make children sin get these special punishment. Supporting Porn businesses does not come with its due punishment.
Don’t open the door to the devil. Don’t allow the Devil to ruin your life.
Porn is not only addictive but also progressive, what got you existed today will need to be surpassed tomorrow. Porn will go to strip clubs, prostitutes. Don’t be fooled. It can and will happen to you if you don’t stop.
As Christian you are dragging along the Holy Spirit with you in all your iniquity. He is not enjoying the sin you practice. Stop He will not leave you, He is committed to seal your soul always.
1 Corinthians 3:16
We will give account for all our actions.
Levels of displacement, depression and strange surroundings all contribute to a unstable environment where temptation can overpower good will.
Abstain - The media criticized President Bush for pushing and abstinence initiative. God is the one that started that is such ways they are also ridiculing Biblical ideology as unpractical and ineffective when in reality it is the only why to be sure.
Did you know in Biblical times the husband would present a wedding blanket stained with blood to the father. This was proof of the virginity of the bride. How many Christian marriages right now would pass this test?
Decency – Is this a lost quality? If we go out there looking for decent men will we find them? God is calling for all man called by his name to be decent in their ways.
Can these things happen amongst Christians, Yes! Not one male in any church is immune to this trap. All it takes is a few dollars, free time or a way to access the Internet in private. The temptation is there you cannot stop the temptation from been there, you have to change the heart.
1 Corinthians 5:1
Many new Christian when converted loose friends because they no longer shave values. When you associate with non believers you have to make sure you are strong enough to be a good example. When they are more of a temptation to you and continually challenge you to participate cut them off.
1 Corinthians 15:33
1 Corinthians 5:9
1 Corinthians 5:11
It’s a lifestyle. There is sin that leads to death. Which is it?
1 John 5:16
Know this; there is a difference in theft and a thief. One is an act the other is a lifestyle or a habit. Wickedness is a lifestyle that continually acts against God guides.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Not to mention homosexuality is all over porn. Most males find arousing in two females acting out. This is another case of slow infiltration of homosexual agendas that undermine God’s bylaws. Just in our lifetime we see in TV and movies homosexual dating shows, same sex kissing and nobody seems to mind.
What I am allowed to do. In your heart of heart’s you know what is right and wrong. There is a place for sex in your life. It is a gift from God. To be enjoyed in the loving embrace of a spouse.
1 Corinthians 6:12-13
"Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
Sexual immorality is a trigger mechanism of God’s wrath. It is also a measuring rod of how far away a group of people are away from God.
1 Corinthians 10:8
What does God expect from us? God demands us to be pure not one stain of Sexual impurity. Porn is the yeast that will destroy your ministry, family, purpose, life, and soul.
1 Corinthians 5:6
What does Sanctified mean? To be set apart for God’s service.
1 Thessalonians 4:3
Sexual immorality the pursuit of continual pleasure has brought down politicians and Pastors alike. People have put on the line their job, prestige, position, livelihood in pursuit of pleasure.
There is no denying, there is punishment prepared for those that continue acting in sexual immorality and perversion. Repent today. Stop indulging your flesh, turn around and don’t look back. God can still have mercy in your soul if you “go and sin no more”.
In a world where tolerance is politically correct, God holds against the church the tolerance of enticers of sin. Not today or tomorrow but one day soon the church will have to make a stand on something, by them it will be too late. In a world where we cannot impose our beliefs on others, we cannot share the good news.
Hitler has a special color seal for zealous Christians; they shared the faith of the Jews. The remaining so called “Christian Church” turned around and omitted from their belief anything that could contradict the ruling party. Like frogs in a pot is it our faith to be like the frog that while standing in boiling water
Repent when salvation can be found, the offer stands today but nobody knows their day. Make peace with God when he can be found.
