Greetings to my praying friends,

Like spitting in to a hurricane.  That is the view many have of ever slowing the flow of pornography much less of eliminating the evil completely.  We, the people, when aroused, can exert great pressure.  Example:  Porn sites have been eliminated in libraries.  Restrictions have been placed on airline passengers to prevent exposure of porn to others on the plane via  their computers or i-pads...

Greetings brothers,

The goal:  Sexual Purity

The Prize:  Being a virgin on your wedding night.

It is true that staying a virgin has lost its importance in today’s culture.  But not in God’s eyes.

Hello my friends,

For those of you who have been following my weekly messages or for you who are just starting I have an analogy to present.

I recently came down with pneumonia.  It was my first bout with this.  I was surprised because I didn’t realize what I had until it began to take over my body.  I developed a fever, lost my energy, lost my focus.  The physician examined me and diagnosed what I had.  We can treat you but it will take time. You must follow certain procedures to help yourself. This will not go away by itself.  It needs to be forcefully treated.

What ...

Dear friends,

As I read further and learn more about the evil effects of pornography the more I become convinced we are up against  an enemy whose power over us is unmanageable.

You cannot overcome lust by/or within yourself.  God knows that and He has provided a way of escape.  It is not an “operation bootstrap” however.

Paul speaks to this in Colossians 2:20:

In our previous post we saw how the brain establishes habits.  Neuropathways are formed by repetition.  Over time a habit can turn into an addiction.

Pornography, we have seen, has the power to create neuropathways in the brain.  Once established, they are very difficult to change.  For example:  a pornographic image seen only once may remain in the brain for years.  Fortunately, the brain is plastic and can be changed.

In our last message we said it was time to turn the spotlight on pornography.

We need to know how destructive it is to relationships.

It has become the new drug and is dangerously addictive. Those who study the human brain tell us that we develop neuron pathways that control our behavior:  for example, porn-viewing sets new neuron pathways which become the control pathway.  The brain in its function is reprogrammed and the neuron pathways become dominant.

How does porn gain access to your thinking and from there to your “inner man”?

It is through your eyes.  The eye is the principal avenue to control our thinking and understanding or simply “what we know”.

How does porn gain access?  It is through a choice we make to let its message in through our eyes and repeated exposures establish a habit which is not far from addiction.

Pornography and the sin of lust are at the root of human trafficking, especially sex trafficking.  In this series Arthur begins to tackle the problem of being held in bondage by porn.

Pornography is destroying marriages, families, friendships and lives around the world.  But it doesn’t need to be a destroyer.  It can be overcome.  While it has taken over the lives of men and women, with prayer and resources it can also be banished from those same lives.

Please join Arthur in this series.  It may help you or someone you love find freedom from the chains of pornography.

klieg lights

Good friends,

It is time to turn the klieg light on pornography. The use of porn is usually kept secret. Guys just don’t talk about it.  Because of the nature of porn there is a shame and guilt connection. Porn remains under wraps which is understandable but unacceptable.

It is time to turn the lights on this evil and recognize it for what it is and stop protecting this multi-billion dollar industry.

We need to become educated and motivated to protect ourselves and ou...
