Several Lies about Porn and Lust

Here we go:

1. You are completely alone, no one else struggles with this, only you.

Lie! YOU ARE NOT ALONE. In my church if I asked for an anonymous total I would say 99% of all guys struggle with it in some form or another.

2. It’s okay every one does it. (by it I refer to porn and also masturbation, as ugly as that word may sound I will not simply jump around it).

Society may do it, but it is NOT OKAY! I have mentioned this before but every time you watch porn it slowly changes the way you think. It takes the intimacy out of sex. When you see a sister in Christ or even a normal person all you see is what’s in those pictures or movies. Guys this might sound gross, but ever heard of erectile dysfunction? According to statistics erectile dysfunction come straight from porn. You see women edited and photoshopped, they look better than they might in real life and so on. This is a horrible lie that Satan uses, every guy can remember the first picture he saw, those images never leave you.

3. It gets better or easier if you’re married.

From the guys I have talked to it does not get any easier when you are married. Actually almost the opposite. I won’t get into details but just take my word I assume it gets harder. That is why we must make war.

4. It doesn’t hurt anyone.

No, you are right, it doesn’t hurt anyone EXCEPT yourself. It affects and rewires your brain causing you to think differently. Read number 2.

5. You’ll be humiliated if you come clean.

NOOO, that couldn’t be more wrong. When I went up and spoke about it at my church I got a few “looks” but other than those 1 or 2 I heard praise, respect, and thanks. It is a great weight off your chest. You don’t have to speak at your church or go crazy, just tell a youth pastor or you real pastor. Someone, Anyone!

So this is it for the main lies, don’t fall for these. Remember that you aren’t alone, I’m here and so are so many others!!!

” If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything” Stand for something!
