Pornography

There is Help for the Christian Struggling with Pornography!

Pornography addiction is truly an “elephant in the pews” of most churches today. Fully 50% of Christian men struggle with addiction to pornography as well 30% of pastors and Christian women. Some of the most faithful attendees of churches find this addiction hopeless and have failed to conquer their addiction to pornography and other sexual behaviors. Dr. George Crabb’s genuine compassion and extensive knowledge on the medical and spiritual aspects of this debilitating addiction shine through as he explains step-by-step how to be free from pornography forever.

If you are looking for help for your friend or loved one struggling with porn, there is hope.

Make sure that you read this article on how to help your loved one struggling with addiction.

There are many different things you can do to help them with this crippling habit.

Some people may wonder what to do with their friend or loved one that is struggling with pornography. Imagine, if you will, the one whom you love--the happy, healthy, young person with a great future ahead of him; a talented student, a generous giver, a loving friend, a new parent, and they are losing everything to addiction!  All of their time and money goes into their addiction. The grief is unrelenting; it is almost worse than a death. A selfish, lying, evasive, and suspicious monster replaces your formerly happy and generous loved one.

When you approach your loved one about the situation, about the pornography, about the extreme consequences that are transpiring in their life, they will be in denial. They will outright deny any usage of porn! Any magazines that you might find in their room, house, or vehicle will belong to a friend, according to your loved one.  If you happen catch your loved-one viewing it, they will most likely concede to using it, but they will vehemently deny they are addicted.  They may even say, "Somebody planted it on me!" "Oh, I have just looked at it once or twice, and it is doing no harm!".

This has been proven to not be the case in the majority of instances that we see. Unfortunately, pornography tends to be glossed over from the pulpit, and the subject rarely comes up except when someone is caught in the act.

Remember that Jesus can heal the unhealable. There is nothing "too bad" for him to clean, and that includes a habit of pornography.

More on How a Christian Deals with Pornography Addiction:

Pornography Addiction is as addictive as alcohol, drugs, or gambling – and this is a proven fact! Pornography isn’t something an individual can pick up and lay down, or escape at will. It takes but a short time before the individual becomes addicted.

Tolerance and Escalation- Pornography addicts develop tolerance and it only takes a short time before escalation sets in. “Old” pornography is not as stimulating as “new” pornography. There is no thrill in going over what has been previously viewed. You need a steady diet of “bigger and better thrills.” How is this provided? By deeper and deeper excursions into greater and greater perversion. This is escalation. It’s easy to picture how the process begins. Once the individual is hooked, he has to have ever-increasing “doses” of pornography, and these must be of a stronger and stronger stimulation to elicit arousal originally brought on by “soft porn.” What happens when pornography is viewed of any type? It has a specific medical effect on the individual. It has been demonstrated that an actual chemical reaction takes place in the brain when one views any type of pornographic material. This chemical reaction (which has a resulting effect upon both body and soul) causes these mental images to be imprinted indelibly upon the brain of the individual. They will subsequently be recalled with clarity and with such force that the individual is unable to break the chain of events as he falls deeper and deeper under the influence of these unhealthy stimuli. An addiction to pornography will destroy the individual just as surely as will an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Desensitization- Once the individual indulges in pornography bondage is sure to follow. He becomes addicted until it soon becomes something he can’t pick up or put down at will. At this point it begins to escalate.  Material that would have once been repulsive- horribly shocking – now becomes acceptable, even commonplace. What has happened? He’s become “desensitized.” Normal responses have been erased, and moral and spiritual disintegration have set in, until finally he is in total bondage.

The Acting Out of the Role- Psychologists and sociologists have found that these steps invariably occur: first, addiction; then escalation; next desensitization; and, finally, the acting out of the role. After viewing the pornographic material and gradually becoming more and more debased, the individual suddenly finds himself desirous of acting out the role he’s been viewing or reading about. At this point he might try to get his wife or girl friend to act out the female role in such situations – whatever they may be. If he doesn’t have a wife or girlfriend, rape or force is resorted to with strange women – or even children. The compulsion does inevitably develop, however, to act out the role.

Pornography in all forms is destructive. So, no matter where you find yourself in regards to this addictive behavior there is a way out. Freedom is available. What is needed is for you to exchange your pornography for the Person, Jesus Christ. Allow us at Reformers Unanimous Schools of Discipleship to help you out of this darkness into the glorious freedom found only in Jesus.
