10 thoughts on “Siren Song: Overcoming Pornography Temptations

  1. A song of Sirens, I couldn’t have described the allure of porn more perfectly. Although it is a song that destroys the the one being captivated & the one who is captivating. Awesome article.

    • My only issue with this analogy is that Odysseus cheated the system. His men heard nothing while he still got to enjoy the feeling the song brought.

    • I , too, thought about the lack of fortitude that Odysseus has. Why not plug his own ears? Ah, bc he wants to give in. He wants to enjoy the song. He wants that pleasure. Meh, and so it was. And so are some of us. Some of us know that we aren’t strong enough to avoid the pleasure. Some of us (as in Odysseus’s case) are in positions of leadership. I bring this up, bc for those in leadership, there is an added level of “who can help me, as I’m supposed to be leading these people?”. Who is at his level on that ship? No one. So it shows a great deal of humility to tell his men what he told them. Sure, he could have set a better example and plugged his own ears… But again (as the point of this article shows) we all react differently. So, for those who know they are more prone to giving in, Odysseus is set forth as an example.

    • Luke, i love your writing. Thank you. Thank you for helping break down this pornography thing and addiction many of us as believers struggle with, but are many times to ashamed to get help with. Please, i hope you write a book someday.

  2. This is incredibly powerful and poetic. Stunningly insightful. The Odysseus versus Orpheus image really captures the push and pull of forces (“run from” versus “run to” as you put it) involved in change.

  3. I started to open an account 4-5 years ago. I didn’t have all my accountability partners information. I never finished. I’m now trying to set up again with a new partner. I can’t get app because it’s still on my cloud account. I can’t access the old app because I don’t remember password. Can you help?
    Thanks Randy
