  Study Tools

AN ADDICTION IS THE WORST DUNGEON ANYONE CAN DWELL. ANYTHING THAT CONTROLS YOU IS AN ADDICTION. AN ADDICTION IS DESTRUCTIVE. IT DESTROYS RELATIOSHIPS. IT DESTROYS YOUR PEACE OF MIND. IT DESTROYS YOUR LIFE. ONE OF THE GREATEST AND MOST TERRIBLE ADDICTIONS IS PORNOGRAPHY. THE HORRIBLE THING IS THAT THOSE PORNOGRAPHY ACTORS SEEM TO BE HAPPY, BUT THEY ARE JUST BEING TREATED AS OBJECTS, EVEN AS ANIMALS. THERE IS NO TRUE LOVE IN SUCH PICTURES. WOMEN ARE TREATED LIKE OBJECTS, NOT PERSONS. IT IS ANIMALISTIC. THIS EPIDEMIC EVEN AFFECTS MANY BELIEVERS. WE NEED TO SEE THAT PORNOGRAPHY IS A SIN OF THE EYES. THOSE HOLY EYES THAT BELONG TO GOD ARE USED TO SEE HORRIBLE IMAGES. BUT THE SEX-ADDICT CRIES OUT: BUT IT FEELS SO GOOD, YES, BUT THE END IS DEATH AND MISERY. HOW CAN WE HELP THE SEX-ADDICT? WHAT HOPE THE BIBLE GIVES US? WELL, FIRST OF ALL, YOU NEED TO REALIZE THAT GOD CREATED SEX. GOD'S DESIGN IS FOR SEX TO BE DONE INSIDE OF THE BOUNDARIES OF MARRIAGE. SEX AS A PLEASURE IS NOT A BAD THING, IT IS HOW IT IS USED THAT CAN BE BAD. LET ME EXPLAIN. TO EAT IS NOT BAD, BUT IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH, THEN YOU ARE SINNING. SEX (WITHIN THE WALLS OF MARRIAGE) IS NOT BAD, BUT IF YOU BECOME CONTROLLED BY IT, ADDICTED TO IT, THEN YOU ARE IN DEEP TROUBLE. NEVERTHELESS, GOD CREATED THIS POWER PLEASURE AND SENSATION CALLED SEX. THEN IT FOLLOWS THAT SEX CAN NOT BE BETTER THAN GOD. WHY? BECAUSE ONLY GOD IS INFINITE AND SEX IS NOT. MEANING THAT GOD IS SUPERIOS TO SEX. YOU THINK THAT THAT STATEMENT IS SCI FICTION, BUT THE TRUE IS THAT THE BIBLE SUPPORTS THAT. NATURALLY, THE BODY CRAVES FOR THIS PLEASURE CALLED SEX, BUT YOU MUST NOT LET IT BECOME A BEAST THAT CONTROLS YOU. HOW COULD GOD BE BETTER THAN SEX? YES, THAT IS ABSOLUTE REALITY. THERE IS SOMEONE HIGHER THAN THE EXPERIENCE OF SEX. YOU COMPARE SEX WITH GOD AND SEX BECOMES NOTHING. YOU NEED TO SEE THAT TRUTH AND BELIEVE IT WITH ALL YOUR HEART! YOU WILL EAT THE FOOD THAT TASTES SWEETER RIGHT? IF THE PLATE OF PORNOGRAPHY IS PRESENTED TO YOU AND THE PLATE OF ENJOYING GOD AS HOLINESS IS ALSO PRESENTED TO YOU, WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO CHOOSE? THE BEST ONE! IT IS ALMOST BLASPHEMY TO SAY THAT THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN SEX! OH MAY THE LORD OPEN OUR EYES TO SEE THAT THERE IS SOMETHING (OR SOMEONE) BETTER! SECONDLY, YOU CAN'T STOP SEEING PORNOGRAPHY DEPENDING ON YOUR OWN POWER. YOU NEED THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. READ CAREFULLY ROMANS 8:1. THE GREEK WORD "CONDEMNATION" CAN BE TRASLATED AS "DISABILITY". I BELIEVE THAT THE WORD CONDEMNATION DOES NOT FIT IN THE CONTEXT OF ROMANS 8:1. IF YOU NOTICE CAREFULLY THE CONTEXT IN ROMANS 7 THE UNREGENERATED PERSON IS STRUGGLING WITH BONDAGE TO SIN. IN ROMANS 7 PAUL IS GIVING AN EXAMPLE (NOT NECESSARILY THAT HE WENT THROUGH THAT EXPERIENCE, HE IS GIVING AN SCENARIO, NOT AN EVENT) OF A RELIGIOUS PERSON WHO IS STRUGGLING WITH THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. "DEATH" THERE MEANS "ABSOLUTE DISABILITY" OR NOT ABLE TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT. THAT IS HOW YOU FEEL WHEN YOU ARE IN BONDAGE TO PORNOGRAPHY, RIGHT? YOU FEEL YOU CAN'T STOP. YOU TRY, BUT YOU FAIL. AS CHRISTIAN, YOU MAY FAIL, BUT MANY TIMES WE SUFFER BECAUSE OF IGNORANCE. ROMANS 8:1 DECLARES: THERE IS NO DISABILITY FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST". BELOVED YOU ARE NO LONGER DISABLE. I CAN DO ALL THINGS IN UNION WITH CHRIST WHO IS MY INNER STRENGTH CONTINOUSLY. THE PROBLEM THAT WE STILL THINKING THAT WE HAVE SPIRITUAL DISABILITY. WE THINK WE ARE SPIRITUALLY HANDICAP. YES, IN OURSELVES WE HAVE NOTHING, BUT IN CHRIST WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THAT HE REQUIRES OF US. THE KEY IS THAT YOU ARE ONE WITH CHRIST! IF YOU SEE YOURSELF AS DISABLE, THEN THAT WILL BE YOUR EXPERIENCE, BUT IF YOU DARE TO BELIEVE GOD'S WORD WHICH DECLARES THAT YOU HAVE NO DISABILITY IN CHRIST, THE BOOM IS YOURS. THE WORD "DISABILITY" PERFECTLY FITS THE CONTEXT OF ROMANS 8:1. WHY? LOOK AT ROMANS 8:2. "BECAUSE THE LAW (NATURE) OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE... HAS SET ME FREE.." YOU STILL THINKING THAT YOU ARE A SLAVE OF SIN WHEN IN THIS VERSE IT SAYS CLEARLY THAT GOD HAS SET YOU FREE IN CHRIST! YOU ARE NOT HANDICAP BECAUSE CHRIST HAS SET YOU FREE IN HIM! ONCE YOU REALLY SEE THAT, THEN WHEN THE TEMPTATION COMES YOU CAN SAY: NO, GOD TASTES MUCH BETTER, MUCH SWEETER! BELOVED, TRUST THE ALMIGHTY ROCK OF THE AGES. RELY ON HIS POWER. RELY ON HIS WORD! AND WHEN THE NASTY UGLY DISGUSTING PORNOGRAPHY KNOCKS THE WINDOWS OF YOUR EYES, THE LIGHT IN YOUR MIND WILL OUTSHINE THE SATANIC LIGHT OF PORNOGRAPHY. YOU ARE FREE IN CHRIST. AMEN.
