Is Porn A Sin?

The answer is YES.

It all begins with lust. Remember lust is an intense desire for something or someone. Lust starts with the eyes. When you see what you are not supposed to see, you will do what you are not supposed to do. Lust can take any form such as the lust for:

  • Money
  • Sex
  • Power

When you look at a woman with lust for instance, the Bible says you have sinned already. When you watch porn you have sinned. Note that sin grows best in the dark. In Matthew 5:28-29, it says that if it is the eye that is making you sin then pluck it out instead of allowing your whole body to go to hell. Rather remove that which is making you sin (I thought this was rather hilarious) But that is just the way it is. I want to tell you a short story about my first encounter with porn. 

So I must have been about 10 or so when I saw pictures of naked men and women actually engaging in sex in my uncle's bedroom! I didn't know what I felt at the time. We lived with an older cousin whom I share this discovery with. He immediately went with me to see exactly what I had seen. I was at  my wit's end with fear. My cousin started explain to me what was happening in those pictures. I was gripped with guilt and as in the Bible would've plucked my eyes and thrown them far away where I could not reach them! But then my body began to feel something I couldn't dare tell anyone. I kept it to myself till this day. 

As much as I tried to hide it, the feeling grew stronger and stronger and then one day my curiosity got the better of me and I confided in my friend. Uncle used to invite us to his room to clean for him and when he wasn't around, we looked at the magazines. By the time I turned 13 or so, my friend and I started experimenting with our bodies. We acted out what we saw in those magazines and soon it became a habit and every time we were together, we did the whole thing over and over again. 

The moral of my story is just to show you how easy it is to sin. Even in our young minds we knew that it was wrong, but our bodies were telling us something else and we chose sin. My dearests, as we grow we must learn to separate our worldly desires from our spiritual ones. If you are strong in spirit and know that God is a hater of sin, then nothing can touch you. We are all in this battle together, fighting the bad and keeping the good. Let's us give thanks our Father in Heaven for this moment to reflect on our well-being as well our spiritual being. 

Now what is you plan as a warrior to have God forgive you of your sin of porn.

Here are 5 steps to help you start your journey to cleansing of the body, mind and soul:

  1. Confess your sin to God, He is faithful - Do this for forgiveness
  2. Confess to the right people - 1 James - Do this for healing
  3. Remove the triggers - Come on now don't be daft, if continue to lose on the same path, it's time to change lanes don't you think?
  4. Get the necessary help - talk to your pastor, seek professional help like counseling etc.
  5. Let God heal the wounds - Allow our Father in heaven to heal our sexual wounds

After you must have done all this with a loving and pure heart you will now gain the following:

  • Honor
  • Intimacy
  • Strength
  • Purity

In Jesus' name...Amen!
