Virtuous Reality Defined

I admit it; I took advantage of the similarity in the term “virtual reality.” A technology that generates images so lifelike you would swear they were real. However, other than sounding alike; the two have nothing at all in common. Virtual means a simulated or fake environment. It’s not unlike pornography, which creates fantasy worlds of lust in our minds that appear real, but they’re not.

Virtuous has to do with authentic righteousness and moral excellence. Furthermore, it speaks of the inherent power and authority that accompanies those strong character traits.

Remember the woman with the issue of blood, who by faith touched the hem of Jesus’ garment. This stopped Him in His tracks, where He asked, “Who touched me?” His disciples said, Lord everybody is touching you. But He knew virtue had gone out of Him (See Mark 5:30 KJV).


There are those today, in positions of control who can announce: By virtue of the authority vested in me by the government, I now declare my decision in the name of my office. He has been authorized to exercise real power. As Christians, we too have been empowered by the highest authority in the universe. He has given us responsibility and ability to rule over all our enemies; lust, pride, shame, selfishness, pornography and Satan himself, along with his entire army. Jesus has endowed us with this profound virtue. His love has translated us out of this shadowy unreal world into His ultimate reality.


“Virtuous Reality” is more than a book title, it’s a place, a destination. It’s the land of God’s fulfilled promises for men finding freedom from the clutches of porn-addiction. It’s our Promise Land of purity and it’s real!
