  1. Wow, I really wish I didn’t read this. …probably because I’m a woman, and you’re a Pastor and well…this information just hurts. I’m sure it is intended for men to read though and I don’t mean to guilt trip you or anything. Just another of the ten million reasons to not put our trust in man nor our hope in man. I do appreciate your honesty.

  2. In general this article is very good. I would like to add a couple of thoughts. First, we all agree that porn chemically changes the brain to crave more and more of the trash. However, some brains have super memories which can make these images stick forever. But for most people, I believe, the disuse of porn makes the memories fade. And when we fill our minds with good stuff like Jesus, and His Word, and the things of God we do lose our appetite for it….and the brain begins to heal an be renewed.

    Secondly, because of the Fall into sin there will be no real return to Eden. We are born with the Old Adam which never goes away. Until our dying day we must fight against the temptations of the devil, the world, and our own sinful flesh.
    St. Paul says, “I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.” Rom. 7:18 But God says to him, “My grace is sufficient for you for My power is made perfect in weakness.” II Cor. 12:9

    So let’s go back to the Cross where the grace of God is found in the blood of Jesus. The real cure begins with Jesus and He is more than able to deal with sin and “cleanse me from its guilt and power.”

  3. When I was hitting porn big time after awhile even tho I hated it, the threshold for viewing got lower and lower. Eventually I’d cross it almost unnoticed, I’d see something innocent but that would trigger going to see porn. Question has to do with irreparable damage. Bible says if we sow to the flesh we reap corruption in the flesh. I’m left wondering if that spiritual corruption has any correspondence to damage to the mind.
