Understanding the Web of Pornography

Understanding the Web of Pornography

Dear soul,

Let me speak to your heart for a moment.

I’m not here to condemn you,

or to judge where you have been.

I understand just how easy

it is to get caught in the web of pornography.

Temptation is everywhere.

It’s an issue that we are all faced with.

Daily we are enticed by what we see on television,

in the movies, and on the internet.

It may seem like a little thing

to look at that which is pleasing to the eye.

The trouble is, looking turns into lusting,

and lusting is a desire that is never satisfied.

…Every man is tempted,

when he is drawn away of his lust, and enticed.

Then when lust hath conceived,

it bringeth forth sin:

And sin, when it is finished,

bringeth forth death.

(James 1:14&15)

Often this is the sequence that draws a soul into pornography.


The scriptures deals with this common issue…

“… I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman

to lust after her

hath committed adultery with her

already in his heart.

And if your right eye offend you, pluck it out,

and cast it from you:

for it is profitable for you

that one of your members should perish,

and not that your whole body should be cast into Hell.”

(Matthew 5:28&29)

Soul,

Satan knows our temptations.

He knows our weakness that we battle with.

He uses alluring devices, beautiful images,

and seductive thoughts, to entice us into his web.

It’s words are laced with flattery,

until we become intrigued.

Our interest leads us into a seemingly harmless path,

ensnaring us in the web of pornography.

Shame and guilt holds its tightening grip.

It becomes a stronghold in our life.

Our freedom is lost.

We face a private battle,

caught in the web of pornography.

Satan sees our struggle.

He laughs at us delirieously,

“…Art thou become as weak as we?

God’s grace can’t reach you now,

your soul is beyond His reach!”

Many die in its entanglement.

Others question their faith in God.

“Have I wandered too far from His love?

His grace can’t reach me now!”

Our weakest moments are when we’re lonely.

We’re drawn away by our own lustful thoughts.

We flirt with temptation when we should flee.

“What harm will it do?… no one will find out.”

we say to ourselves convincingly.

It’s moments of pleasure are dimly lit

for lonliness sets in, having been deceived.

Its broad road leads to destruction,

marching down to the chambers of death.

It calls out to all types of men,

even women, aren’t far from its reach.

It steals husbands from their wives,

fathers from their children,

wives from their husbands.

Time that can no longer be redeemed.

Pornography distracts your mind.

It gives you a spirit of restlessness.

The wife of your youth

now pale in comparision

to the women that you have fantizied with.

O safeguard your hearts, dear soul,

guard your thoughts!

For lustful passions are triggered

in the heart and mind.

It does not love, satisfy or care.

Ultimently it leads to death.

Oh, if we could lift the lid of hell

even for a moment,

we would see the agony of souls

crying out for the mercies of God,

who died in their sins.

It would make you sick.

It would make you vomit.

It would cause us to run to our families

and tell our loved ones

to turn from thier wicked ways,

lest they also come to this place of torment.

The choice you make is sealed for eternity.

You will live either in Heaven, or in Hell.

Its indulgents does not compare

to the agony of soul

that awaits the unrepentant sinner.

It would be far better to deny yourself

the pleasures of this lifetime

than to lose both body and soul in Hell.

The Lord is not willing that any should perish,

but that all should come to repentance.

Though you may have fallen

as many of us have,

lift your eyes to Heaven

and cry out to God for deliverance.

He will hear your faintest cry, dear soul,

and pick you up from the pit you have fallen.

His grace stooped lower to hear my cry,

He’ll do the same for You too.

Right now, wherever you are

you can bow your head,

and commit your life to Christ.

You can begin a relationship with Him

by praying a prayer such as the following:

“O God, I am a sinner.

I am sorry for my sins.

Please forgive me.

I want to turn from my sin.

I receive Jesus Christ as my Saviour;

I confess Him as my Lord.

From now on, I want to follow Him.

Thank you for saving my soul.
