Pornography is a taboo in the church, but it’s not going away. In this era of easy access, sweeping the problem under the rug can no longer work. Using guilt and fear to shame people into changing does not work. Research has shown that pornography addictions have very similar effects on the brain as drug addiction. Most people with sexual addictions want to stop, but they find themselves powerless to do so. I was such a person. Was. God does not rage against the addict. Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”
In my despair, no one had more spiritual poverty than I did, and instead of wrath, I found grace. I learned that it was God’s job to overcome my sin. As I learned to walk in grace by faith, my addiction withered up and died. God is not waiting for you to clean up your life. The Lord walks with you in loving kindness as you learn to allow Him to transform your life. Don’t believe the lie that God casts you off until you learn how to be holy. Take this amazing journey of faith where God draws you into His holiness with the promise, “If you walk in the Spirit, you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” The porn addict has a great opportunity to experience the life in the Spirit that others have a hard time seeing, for where sin abounds, grace much more abounds. You can not only be free from this addiction, but one day you’ll grow to realize, “I am tempted no more!”
