Christ can set you free.

Christ can set you free.

"I will set nothing wicked before my eyes." Ps 101:3 NKJV

Pornography is sweeping across the world, leaving families torn apart in its wake. Many churchgoers who are struggling to break free feel isolated and helpless. One study revealed that 68 percent of churchgoing men view porn on a regular basis. 

When you watch it, powerful neurotransmitters such as dopamine are released, which bond you to the images you're looking at. According to neuropsychologist Dr. Tim Jennings, "Any type of repetitive behavior will create trails [neural pathways] in our brain that are going to fire on an automatic sequence." Some churches treat this issue as strictly a moral one, failing to realize it's also a brain problem.

We advise men to try more, pray more, and love the Lord more. And that's important. But when you fight the flesh in the power of the flesh, you end up fighting yourself. What's the answer? Your mind has to be renewed, and that's a process. When your brain has been trained the wrong way, it must be retrained the right way. This calls for radical commitment, such as removing pornography from your life and sometimes walking in accountability with a mature Christian friend you can turn to in times of testing. 

Above all, it involves reprogramming your mind with God's Word. Paul writes: "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Ro 12:1-2 NKJV).  You don't have to live in bondage to pornography. Christ can set you free.
