The Lies Of Porn

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

Ephesians 6:10‭-‬13 ESV

Scheme
verb
make plans, especially in a devious way or with intent to do something illegal or wrong.

So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Romans 8:12‭-‬13 ESV

Satan wants to destroy you. He uses many lies. However we are going to talk today about the lies of porn.


Lies
1. Porn is harmless fun
2. Porn will satisfy



Lie 1
Harmless fun!

Truth:
Porn hurts the world

Sex Slave trade

Roughly half of the sample group (including men, women, and children) were used to make pornography films.

80% of those who have been freed from human trafficking were forced to re-enact specific acts of pornography by the people who enslaved them.

The majority of these victims are taught how to “perform” via pornographic material.

Dehumanizing and Actor abuse

A common misconception about pornography is that it is just people having sex on camera. However, in mainstream pornography violence is now the norm, with men inflicting violence and abuse against women who are forced to submit to body-punishing and humiliating sex acts. A 2010 study of the fifty most popular pornographic DVD titles found that 88% of scenes included violence. Of these, 95% depicted violence against women by men.

Female Performers recount incidents of physical violence against them in pornography.

”My first movie I was treated very rough by 3 guys. They pounded on me, gagged me with their penises, and tossed me around like I was a ball! I was sore, hurting and could barely walk. My insides burned and hurt so badly. I could barely pee and to try to have a bowel movement was out of the question. I was hurting so bad from the physical abuse from these 3 male porn stars.” -Alexa

”Guys punching you in the face. You have semen from many guys all over your face, in your eyes. You get ripped. Your insides can come out of you. It’s never ending.” -Jersey

(After being whipped and caned for 35 minutes) “I’ve never received a beating like that before in my life. I have permanent scars up and down the backs of my thighs. It was all things that I had consented to, but I didn’t know quite the brutality of what was about to happen to me until I was in it.”- Alexander

“I was crying and crying, which was not against their shooting rules. There was a male dominant and a male videographer and a female photographer. I kept looking to her to save me.”-Princess

Porn hurts you

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18 ESV


Anhedonia
An inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable.


Lie 2
Porn will Satisfy
Truth:
For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took off its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.
Genesis 3:5‭-‬6 ESV


Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.
Isaiah 55:2 ESV

So what is the fix?
I know how you feel.
Disappointed in yourself…
Feeling hopeless
What can I do with this info…

A.N.T.H.E.M.  by John Piper

Avoid
Avoid as much as possible situations and the sights /sites that will arouse evil desire.

     So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
2 Timothy 2:22 ESV

     The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
Romans 13:12‭-‬14 ESV


No in the first 5 seconds
Say “No” to every lustful thought within seconds

     Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7 ESV

Turn
Turn your mind forcefully toward Christ.
Attack the lies of sin with the promises of Christ.
  
   Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21 ESV

  
Hold
Hold the promise and the pleasure of Christ firmly in your mind until it pushes the other images out.

    Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value]. For you died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:2‭-‬3 AMP


Enjoy
Enjoy a superior satisfaction

    So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Return, O Lord ! How long? Have pity on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Psalms 90:12‭-‬14 ESV

Move
Move. Go. Do something.





The lies are everywhere and they promise to give you all your desires. Heroes, we must remember that serpent talk is the sweetest when he is around your neck. Lust is a lie. Those pixels that you click on are lies. If you do not fight you will surely die.

Fight Heroes, Fight….
