8 thoughts on “21 Lies Porn Uses to Keep You in Bondage

  1. Such good insight, or maybe we should call it Godsight! The effects of porn on the family and the person viewing it are multifaceted. Porn and all “addictions”, which in actuality is sin against the Lord, leave no room for God to do the work He’s wanting to do in our lives. God bless all those who no longer walk in the light. Look for the flicker of hope there is to bring you back to Him.

  2. I periodically look at porn. I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and I cannot tell where one problem ends and the other begins. It is a huge problem for me. I’m not using the OCD as an excuse to look at porn – the fact is I do have this mental health issue that is affecting me in area of sexual integrity. Do you have any comments or suggestions for me to consider – I would appreciate hearing from you.

    • Steve, OCD is a real disease, we know for that for sure. Are you in treatment with a good psychiatrist for your OCD? Adjusting medication may be helpful if you find you’re unable to stop thoughts or behaviors that are troubling to you. If your symptoms seem to be under good control in other areas, then I suspect you’ll need to keep picking yourself back up, being honest about what’s going on, and moving forward as best you can. If you aren’t seeing a therapist, that could be another healthy addition to your treatment plan as you continue to manage the OCD. I know how difficult and troubling OCD can be. Peace to you, Kay

    • So sorry to hear about that! We are interconnected beings where you can’t separate our spirit from soul from body from mind. I honestly have no expertise to speak to your mental health issues, but I do know that neuro science shows that the plasticity of the brain means CHANGE IS POSSIBLE!

      But even if science told us you couldn’t change because of your condition, God is SOVEREIGN over all, so I pray, “Lord, give Steven the ability, the desire and the determination to present his body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You, which is our spiritual worship. And that he would NOT be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of his mind, that by testing he may discern Your will, which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2)

      Final thoughts: confess quickly and completely and then receive the forgiveness that God has ALREADY paid for on your behalf. Hope this post helps there: http://f-m-u.com/ok-god-already-knows-porn/

  3. As a recovering addict to porn, This is excellent information to know and to take to heart. These lies often get told to us so that we might fall. Now if we study these lies, we can recognize more easily when we are tempted to look at it. Thank you so much for this information.

    • Glad it helped, Robert C! Praying you grow to hate the liar of porn more and more. And grow deeper and deeper in love with your creator who made your sexuality for His glory and your good!
