9 thoughts on “Repenting of Porn Addiction (Part 1)

  1. “…there are no quick fixes: no easy tricks or easy solutions…”

    The opening statement of post says it all! In my mind exercising spiritual discipline is much the same as exercising physically. If you truly want to get in shape… if you want real results that are sustainable then you have to do it the “old fashioned way”. You have to work at it… you have to sweat bullets over and over again until you “beat your body into submission”.

    There are no quick fixes that are real… no Hollywood diet or magic pill. If you want to become physically fit you need to exercise your body. If you want to gain spiritual discipline you need to exercise yielding to the Spirit… and exercise your freedom in Christ!

    This is an amazing aspect of God’s grace… to have the power, by the Spirit, in the name of Jesus… to choose to be free!

  2. Will it appease God’s wrath or help me out of my addiction if I construct a small scourge and begin whipping myself every time I look at porn? I am a saved Christian, and do not believe that shedding my own blood will atone for my sin, but will it look like more of an ernest effort in the eyes of God?

  3. I enjoyed the article very much and found it most helpful. But one thing you said that irked me a bit and that was, ‘God being angry at the sin’. In my relationship with my Heavenly Father I do not believe He gets angry with me. He is a God if love and He only sees the Perfection in us, it’s not an excuse to continue to sin but holding on to His precious love has seen me through many a battle. I think the enemy would love to tell us God’s angry you’ve done it now! But he has no power over us.
    P.S. its a shame Covenant Eye charges for their site services I know men who need the help but can’t afford it.
    Blessings to you

    • Hey Andrew,

      Thanks for the comment!

      A couple things to consider…

      1. I said, “One begins to see the sin as God does—an offensive thing that both saddens and angers Him.” The focus in this statement is not “God is angry with you” but “sin angers God.” There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1), but God still disciplines us in his Fatherly love (Hebrews 12:7) because He hates what sin does to us. I tried in this article to be careful not to say God looks on us with some kind of rejection or disdain.

      2. We have a hardship program for anyone who cannot afford Covenant Eyes. If you have anyone you know who needs Covenant Eyes but can’t afford it, we are happy to give the service to them free of charge, no questions asked.
