Pornography is not what we think. It’s not just a video of people having sex or images of nudity. It’s a complete deception of what sex really is. It’s counterfeit – a lie – pixels on a computer screen or magazine meant to make money for someone you’ll never mean – but someone who’s using your eyes and mind to record the images so you become enslaved, programmed and deformed by a wrong view on what God intended to be perfect. Is God nervous about this? Absolutely not. But he is deeply saddened that we have exchanged sex, a beautiful gift between a man and woman in marriage, for the selfish pleasure of a minute of masturbation and mental bondage through pornography.

By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
