Good things and things not so good. Sinful things. Yes, sin can be, and usually is, pleasurable. That’s why it’s so popular.
It’s why you and I do sinful things. We enjoy the good feelings we get. They are pleasurable; for a season. Until the final bill is due.
“…than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season…” (Hebrews 11:25 KJV)
Pornography feels good, at least for a while.
Pornography is a feel-good killer. You can feel good all the time until it finally kills you. And kill you it will.
Pornography kills intimacy. It is impossible to be intimate with your spouse, completely open and transparent, if your mind is full of pornographic images. Impossible.
I didn’t say it’s impossible to have sex. But intimacy and sex are not synonymous. At all.
Pornography kills a person’s self image. Oh, they may consider themselves quite the stud or vixen while viewing or participating with porn, but when the show closes, the phone call’s finished, and the real live person is staring back at you in the mirror; when reality sets in and your conscience screams at you to be honest with yourself, you have to admit you can’t stand the person you’ve become.
Of course, there is a way to beat THAT feeling. Just keep ignoring it and you’ll find out that porn killed the voice of your conscience.
If that happens, you are well on your way to becoming a mindless reprobate; completely unable to live according to principles, or honor any commitment, vow, or oath. When the urge, the desire, speaks, every part of your body obeys. It must find a way to answer the “call”, even if it has to steal, lie, cheat, sneak; whatever.
Pornography kills integrity.
Pornography kills relationships.
Pornography kills innocence.
Pornography kills purity.
Pornography kills any hope of real love.
Pornography is an empty promise. It never delivers what it initially boasts. All it does is open one’s soul to greater degrees of depravity.
It’s like a fire. Pornography keeps striking matches, burning one’s soul a piece at a time, until finally, the life is consumed.
Pornography kills the future of its slave.
Pornography kills self-control.
Pornography kills one’s ability to honor the marriage bed.
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” (Hebrews 13:4 ESV)
Pornography is fornication. It is adultery. It is vile. It has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It is diabolical, evil, and many good men and women have been destroyed by it.
Pornography – a feel-good killer.
If you’re a slave to it, or if you’re just its close friend, you’d better find a way to get yourself free; while you still have feelings. Because sooner or later, if you don’t kill it, it will kill you.
While you still have a conscience, find someone somewhere who can help you break your downward journey to hell.
A feel-good killer will not release you from its grip, any more than a fire will regret the damage it’s doing and blow itself out.
Don’t you think it’s time to get help, get free, and get a life worth living?
