Something Surprising about Pornography

Disclaimer: I’ve seen porn but never been a porn addict.  I wish I could say it’s because of my great faith but it’s probably easier for me to avoid because what I have seen is so artless and crude–which isn’t that appealing to a romantic like me.  Then again, I have to be on guard against the pull of erotic stories.

Having dealt with numerous men under the spell of porn–and I think “spell” may be a better word than “addiction” since it’s pull is not just biological but supernatural and  occultic–I remain unconvinced that techniques and gimmicks will end porn use–or keep men from it.  In general, the benefit of running from something bad has clout only if we’re running to something better.  Jesus is better.

I sometimes read Michigan blogger and pastor Noah Filipiak who battled porn for years.  Covenant Eyes just posted this fantastic piece by him on porn that is written to husbands.  http://www.covenanteyes.com/2015/03/31/porn-is-not-your-problem-entitlement-is/?utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=16822649&_hsenc=p2ANqtz–s_PH68KiDaoWVhDgDU2On2WLvZ8TjgdN4gQNMtH5U2Khxu_dAKLNz5JxwC1Qid0F4xam6sDfrCugbq-d9bYgfcfkrNA&_hsmi=16822649
