Was there a moment in your life when you faced a crossroad and a difficult moral/ethical decision?

Yes, there was a time in my life where I faced a crossroad and a difficult moral decision. I was raised by Christian parents, attended church, and made a profession of faith at the age of five. I was the “good girl” who was an over-achiever, memorized Bible verses, and could answer any question in Sunday school. Yet none of these things kept me from becoming addicted to pornography. I stumbled upon it following a broken relationship. I was crushed and lonely. Looking at porn began as a curiosity, and I rationalized that even while looking at it, I wasn’t really trapped—I was still in control.

When I did look at it, it was only a moment of weakness. But a nagging voice kept saying something else. The more I ran to it, the less comfort and relief it brought. It became a vicious cycle that I hid from everyone. After every fall, I would be crushed with guilt and shame; I would ask for forgiveness; I would feel better, and then shortly thereafter fall again.

Frightening questions rose in my mind:

“Am I really a Christian if I struggle with these particularly dark sins?

How do I stop this? Is there any hope of this ever changing?

What must God think of me?”

How did your faith guide you through your decision?

During this time, I sought spiritual counsel from the Lord, by cracking open my Bible. This was the greatest place to start. I read the bible, studied and reflected on it day and night. Jesus instructed me to be "transformed by the renewing of my mind" (Romans 12:2). The Bible became my weapon against the enemy. Ephesians 6:17 calls the Bible the "sword of the Spirit." By filling my heart and mind with God's Word, I was able to repent and develop a stronger FAITH to basically guard my heart against the desire to give in to the temptation to watch pornography as they came.

I was finally FREE.  1 Corinthians 10:13 says that God will always provide an escape: "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

 I looked for the exit door, then took it!

Jesus gives us some awesome advice in Matthew 5:29 too: "If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell."

Okay, don't go gouging out your eyes or cutting off body parts!

Sin is majorly serious!

Dismemberment is a drastic measure, and Jesus is saying that we should take drastic measures in order to avoid sin.

But now I know that some of us struggle in this area, so there must be someone just like, alone, caught in the same vicious cycle in which I was once trapped. I fear that they, too, are overwhelmed with guilt and shame, since no one is talking about this.

I’m praying that God will open up this subject for discussion and that a community of God-fearing Christians would rise up and shepherd one another. As Jesus went outside and brought in the bruised lambs, so we can, in his power, go and find those who are hiding and bring them to the Shepherd who heals our souls.

 

What drastic measures have you taken to rid your life from temptations or stop Satan in his tracks?
