Christians and Pornography: How does the cycle breaks?

Posted under Breaking the Cycle of Abuse by Marcus Pottea on September 25th, 2012 3:30 am

I asked because I was introduced to this as a child, and still am affected by this. I don’t watch it daily, but every other season I feel "attacked by its images or unclean thought."

I feel like a total hypocrite because my heart remembers and invites—let’s say I don’t always rebuke those thoughts.

How can I be broken free from this? I’ve been suffering from this as a child, although I never had a daily addiction—it’s like what Jesus says about a clean house, and more wicked demons coming back. How can I remain and clean house and strong house.

Still fighting and struggling from the affects of child abuse.
MY BIGGEST MISTAKE is believing I can solve this problem on my own, and I’ve failed every time. The other mistake is not taking accountability.

It takes a lot of time, and a lot of persistance. Breaking a cycle of an addiction is not easy, and never fun. But start with setting goals, one day at a time, and when you do feel tempted during that time (because you will), find something else to do. Make it a goal to stay busy doing other things. Pray for strength, and earnestly try to change your heart and mindset to avoiding it at all costs.

When you do mess up, start over. Try again. Keep trying and pushing on. You’ll make it, God will give you the strength if you ask and earnestly wish to change.

  2. Nothing else matters

    So close no matter how far
    Couldnt be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    And nothing else matters

    Never opened myself this way
    Life is ours, we live it our way
    All these words I dont just say
    And nothing else matters

    Trust I seek and I find in you
    Every day for us something new
    Open mind for a different view
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    But I know

    So close no matter how far
    Couldnt be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    But I know

    Never opened myself this way
    Life is ours, we live it our way

    Every day for us something new
    Open mind for a different view
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they say
    Never cared for games they play
    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    And I know

    So close no matter how far
    Couldnt be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    No nothing else matters

  10. I believe things of this nature are to take time and sometimes lots of time no matter which way you will treat it ! Now I am assuming that it all brings awful feelings because of the way you were exposed, but i was also wondering if part of you finds it mildly appealing, because we all have a little bit of it in us…just wondering ! and so either way, dont be to hard on yourself because sometimes the more attention you give something,(even in terms of fighting against it ), the stronger it becomes…so chill out and put your focus and attention to other things…good things, things that are pure…philipians ch 4
