Sexual Sin

With each succeeding generation it seems as though we experience gains in medicine and technology. One only needs to witness the iPad and the breakthroughs in cancer treatment to realize that things will never be the same. Sometimes these advancements come at a cost. At one time men would have to go out of their way to have access to pornography. They would have to visit the seamier areas of town and run the risk of being seen, today they just need a smart phone to have instant access to the crudest of visuals. And now it is not just men who are the voyeurs.

The problem for those of us who consider ourselves to be Christian is that we know when we are doing something that would not bring glory to God and yet we continue our destructive behavior. So it is with pornography. The following video clip features Winston Smith, who is on faculty with the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation. He advises how we might approach someone who has this addiction and is refusing to give it up.



Unless we feel convicted about our sinful behavior and turn toward God and repent we will be unable to shake free from the bondage that we are in. The person caught up in this sin must take aggressive measures, not dissimilar from one who is trying to lick their addiction to alcohol. After taking it to the Lord they must tell at least one close friend, someone who will hold them accountable. They should seek counseling or a support group. They should have filters put on their computers (www.safeeyes.com or www.covenanteyes.com ) or check out www.settingthecaptivesfree.com . We must remember we are in a battle “against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Eph. 6:12
