  1. The single best thought that conquers this devastating sin is 1john 2:15
    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (I John 2:15-17 NKJV)
    What does this passage say about it? It CANNOT satisfy, it will not allow me to be happy enough to ‘abide forever.’ This verse (v.17) reminds me there is ‘instant’ reward for doing God’s will. It is ‘infinite!’

    Your article about pornography was wonderful. It is very destructive and errodes the foundation of relationships. It can be an addiction and an obsess ion. It is not Gods plan for a healthy relationship. What is so sad is that it is a thief that kills and destroys .
    Thank you
