Finding Freedom from Sexual Impurity through the Lord Jesus Christ, A Guide for Men and Women in the Enemy's Crosshairs

Resurrection Life Ministries

 The secrecy of pornography and especially internet pornography has riddled minds, torn apart homes, and destroyed marriages. Pornography has become one of the most powerful businesses in the world and the industry continues to grow. It is a multi-billion-dollar indusrty. By that extreme success, we must acknowledge that people are supporting its growth. To put it plainly, many people all over the the world are addicted to pornography. Those in the Church and even Clergy are not immune. With the explosion of the Internet, Satellite, Cable, and Pay per View, a person can very secretly and easily immerse himself/herself in this dark world. However, what may start out as an innocent curiosity can turn into an enslaving and enslavement to pornography and masturbation and how only an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ broke and destroyed the invisible chains of addiction. I document my forgiveness and restoration back to God's original design for man. With in-depth analysis from Scripture, I detail how God and Victory only come from intimacy and surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ.


Excerpt

Romans 8:6 (AMP): “Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter].”

I frequented various strip clubs. I began to move from just porno magazines to purchasing video tapes. The addiction escalated in such a way that I always wanted to view some new magazine, some new video tape, some new women in strip clubs. Once I had one for a short while, it no longer satisfied me. I had to buy new porn and visit new strip clubs. This spiraled into a vicious cycle, which triggered more and more pornography use and masturbation. It became very time-consuming, secretive, and financially expensive. I would go to a strip club and spend $100 before I even realized that the money was gone. I began to fall deeper and deeper into spiritual darkness.

Romans 1:21 (AMP): “Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.”

As I continued to refuse or resist the light of God, my mind and thoughts were darkened and I fell deeper into a stronger and stronger addiction. I recall being so consumed by lust that I would often daydream at work about the pornography tapes or visits to certain strip clubs to such an extent that I was not able to concentrate. At that time I had just given my mind and imaginings over to the evil thoughts the enemy (the devil) would continually bring to my mind.
