There is a different mind-set I have now.  When I consciously think about the area of sexual immorality, I acknowledge the following six truths.  At the same time there are three actions I consider taking.

The Story of Porn

I found this little gem today while taking a small break at work today. I love how she uses porn as the other “wife” in this. Sadly many of you women know that a man, who has an addiction, has two wives….his real physical loving wife and the addiction…whether it it be porn, drugs or alcohol.

Pornography is an addictive drug. It is used to cope with the stressors of life in an unhealthy way. It releases those “feel good” chemicals into the brain, just like drugs and alcohol do; they induce pleasure automatically, which makes it addictive in nature.

Christians are in a dangerous predicament today: we do not know where to look in God’s word for the solutions to our problems. So writes, Rachel Coyle in HELP! She’s Struggling with Pornography. She continues, “this is often because we use non-biblical words to describe problems and struggles. It is not wrong or sinful to use words such as addiction, but it does pose some potential problems. When we do not use biblical terms to define our struggles, it is easy to think the Bible is not adequate to address all the problems of life. We find ourselves turning elsewhere for solutions to sin. Let’s get back to the Bible and develop the skill of biblically defining the problems with which we struggle. Identify the biblical terms that describe sexual addiction in the following passages:
