Bending a mind too far twists it—Continuing to do so kinks it. Once twisted and kinky, a mind can’t function properly until it’s made straight again.
“You have heard that it was said, Do not commit
adultery. But I tell you that anyone who looks at a
woman lustfully has already committed adultery with
her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28 NIV)
While visual stimulation may be natural and part of God’s plan, He never designed us to see so much, nor to be so stimulated. Pornography is Satan’s idea and deadly by design. He makes us think we are doing our own thing, while in reality our thing is doing us.
“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you
should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should
learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and
honorable, not in passionate lust.”
(I Thessalonians 4:3-5 NIV)
In reality porn addicts are drug abusers cast from a different mold—only the chemicals they abuse are the endorphins and hormones created by their own bodies. They’re “tripping out” on their own lusts by gorging themselves on large doses of erotica. Falls from these unnatural highs leave users drained, dissatisfied and thinking all they need is just a little more.
