I send this message to benefit the well being of both self and peers. I can no longer remain silent on an issue reserved only to private gatherings or scheduled events.
As all sin, it should be discussed amongst the Christian public, unless we are to let it destroy us one by one.
I speak of sexual immorality – a personal bondage more ancient than murder.
I take this personally due to the fact I am a former porn addict. Of course, I still continue the resistance against this evil and its kind till this day.
Surely, this spiritual war will only end when I enter eternity. I find it uplifting to bear my “secret” sin to my peers, for the wicked desire and shame loses hold of my life. Indeed, the Lord spoke liberating truth when He instructed, “Confess your sins to one another.”
The Spirit of God establishes a gradual change in life; the evil you desired becomes your enemy, as it is with God. You begin to see through His eyes how it creates suffering and death in your fellow man.
I find deep grief in the exploitation of the female image of God. I likewise grieve over the addiction/misuse of not just the guys but also the growing number of gals. Yes, it is common for both sexes. Porn is no exception.
I pray for you, my beloved Vanguard. If you do not run from this sin it will cut away your life, along with those around you.
My Christian brethren, indulge your mind in the word of God, so sexuality will not be your train of thought. I urge you not to keep it between you and God alone.
Find at least one brother or sister, if not more, who you can seek strength from. Remember, “Iron sharpens iron.”
Sex is a sacred gift from the Lord to help solidify the divine union of singular male and female matrimony. I am thereby not ashamed to say I am very well attracted to women.
I enjoy it more than most guys, because I allow Him to decide absolute female beauty. In other words, I overall only see fine ladies, from the inside out. I experience an unequaled sense of love and community. I am free in this sexuality, originally intended by God. My brothers and sisters, He is waiting to grant you such freedom.
