Lust...that sexual desire...that longing to be physical with someone. Yeah, I am fighting that urge with every fiber of my being. It doesn't seem to get any easier when the arrows fly my way. It seems to get harder. Saying no to porn is somewhat easy. I just pick up the phone and read y'all's… Continue reading L Is For Lust

“Now, there are two incorrect thoughts people have about addiction that I would like to address in the rest of this post. These are ideas I’ve seen in those trying to help an addict, as well as in addicts themselves.

Peter gives us a wonderful post. There are a ton of nuggets in here that God placed on his heart to share! I could not find one that jumped out more than the other to use as an opener. He also gives some great resources at the bottom of his post including Heath Lambert’s book Finally Free!
Last Sunday I spoke at our church on the subject of Pornography. Pornography has been around for centuries, but it has never been so widespread and prolific as it is today. Today we have the internet. That means any child, teen or adult can instantly stream on to their computer, phone or tablet, graphic sexual images and videos, without anyone knowing about it.
How bad is it? It’s really bad. And it’s not just the religious moral right who are concerned. Health professionals and educators concerned, because they see how it’s messing up peoples’ lives. Doctors and neurosurgeons are concerned because they are seeing what porn is doing the brain.
