Porn has more fans than Football

Porn has more fans than Football. Porn rose to fame when it became easily accessible. Entry into the world of pornography is easy, but exiting is hard.

What is pornography?:

People say adult videos; adult dating sites…Blah blah blah…Let me get you to the true essence of porn-

  • Pornography is “virtual prostitution” (You don’t watch pornography to relax yourself and have some popcorn; you watch it for sexual arousal or to masturbate.).
  • Pornography is women abuse, child abuse (When you click your mouse to watch trash, you become a part of this abusing campaign).
  • Pornography portrays sex in a wrong way.

Anyone who looks at another lustfully has committed adultery in their heart-Jesus (Matthew 5:28)

Jaw-dropping Porn statistics:

  • 90% of children between 8-16 have viewed porn.
  • Porn sites consume 12% of the web-world . (More than 4.2 million sites)
  • 25% of search engine requests are for porn.
  • 50% of pastors regularly watch porn.
  • 1 in 6 women are addicted to pornography.
  • Every second 28,258 people view porn.
  • 43% of net users view porn.
  • India ranks 2 for using the keyword-“sex” in the net.
  • The pornography industry’s revenue is larger than the revenues of the top technology companies ‘combined’: Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo!, Apple, Netflix and EarthLink.

(Your jaw must have hit the floor!!!)

Porn is a killer:

Prophet Damon Thompson says-“You are not dabbling with pornography. You are playing with a loaded gun”. It will blow your head anytime. A few videos; a few pictures and you’re gone. You will be chained into the world of pornography. Porn is believed to be more addictive than liquor, drugs and smoking.

The problem is not with your computer, the problem is in your brain. The brain creates a neuropath for this action of watching porn. After you repeat this action for a period of time, a neuropath will be formed for this false pleasure. (Doctors, help me out). After that, you will just start to flow smoothly into watching porn. That doesn’t make you innocent; you were the one who entered the world of pornography.Temptation is mandatory but sin is always a choice.You choose to watch porn.

Repeated action ends in addiction. So is it okay to watch once? A single peep into this trash will create in you a desire to watch it again. Beware!

The Domino effect of Porn:

  • It will destroy your marriage. If you are addicted to porn, your relationship with your spouse/future spouse is at stake.
  • It will pollute the way you look at people of the opposite sex (It will affect the way you see ‘your children’, family members. Increase in child abuse is because of pornography. Read your newspaper-Father raping daughter, Grandparent molesting grandchild, school teacher sexually assaulting student…) India, you have to answer this-“INDIA HAS THE LARGEST NUMBER OF SEXUALLY ABUSED CHILDREN”-CHILD LINE INDIA.”EVEN AT HOME, KIDS AREN’T SAFE”-INDIAN EXPRESS.
  • It will affect your performance in studies or work or ministry.
  • It will open the way for demons.
  • It will pollute your idea of sex.

Porn-Killer…Freedom from pornography:

Power of God is the porn-killer. Pornography puts you in chains and only God’s power can break the chains. Most teachings on sin just give you some “sin-management tips” but I’m saying-” You are already free, just receive it by faith”. Jesus didn’t just purchase your forgiveness, He purchased your freedom on the cross.  Porn addiction was defeated on the cross. Watching porn is equal to having sex, so you lose your virginity by watching porn. Rejoice,because of the cross we can be made new!

I believe in the supernatural release of God’s power for instant freedom, but not everyone receives it. The good news is everyone has been set free from sin on the cross 2000 years ago. You are free. We have to just receive and walk in it. We don’t have a sin problem, we have a belief problem. (Non-Christians have a sin problem).

Imagine you are in jail under a “Hitler” and I have purchased your freedom. If you don’t know that you have been set free, “Hitler” is going to keep you in jail even though you are legally free. Similarly, Jesus has already set you free, you have to believe it as you believe that you are human and walk free. The more you believe, the more freedom you experience. Meditating on Biblical truths is the key to bringing “the freedom you already have” into manifestation. Verses for meditation-(Romans 6:6,7; Galatians 5:1,13; 1 Corinthians 10:13; Titus 2:11,12 and others that talk about freedom from sin…A good understanding of the book of Romans will throw more light.)

Temptations may come but you don’t have to sin. God doesn’t “allow” temptations you can’t overcome.You will only face temptations,you can overcome. Isn’t that wonderful??? . Claim your freedom. Receive the freedom you already have in Jesus and maintain it. Your mind is the battlefield, keep it clean and fill it with God’s Word. Say it out aloud-“Am free because of what Jesus did”!!!
