Porn Addiction:

We will continue to focus on sin as the "disease" and Jesus Christ as the "Cure".  However, we want to make the community aware of the fact that pornography is like a cancer in this country.  It affects everyone, the one addicted, as well as his/her family. The longer we ignore pornography, the stronger it gets. Porn addiction has now surpassed alcoholism in the number of victims it has claimed. This is a matter for PRAYER and action.

28% of all online sales is for pornography, 8% of all email sent is pornographic in content. The economic size of the Industry $57 billion dollars, Largest consumers of internet pornography 12-17 age group, and 70 Percent of 8-16 year olds who have viewed pornography online 90% (usually while doing home work)  Average age of first internet exposure to pornography is 11 years old.

If you or someone you know suffers with this addiction, there is help out there.  Start with XXXChurch.com, no-porn.com or contact Pastor Bob at ombcgjpastor@live.com. The most important thing to do is get help, do not give into the urge to try this on your own that is a train wreck waiting to happen.  It takes the ones you love lifting you up and accountability, then making yourself accountable to someone else.  There is no recovery from this addiction, but there is "REAL" control with help.  We live in a society that soft porn abounds so truly recovering is really just not possible. Learn how to control the urges and the addiction.

You spend hours in front of the computer searching for porn each day

You have lost interest in your wife, girlfriend and other sources of a real relationship in favor of watching porn.

You spend hundreds of dollars paying for membership at various porn sites or pay strangers to have sex with or perform for you.

You have marks on your genital often left behind by rigorous masturbation.

You can't think straight until you have masturbated. 

You suffer from chronic depression and mood swings.

 

There is no snake oil that will end this bondage to pornography, what it takes is hard work accountability and turning your life over to Christ.  Something you need to consider is every time you go to that porn site,  you love so much looking for the ever illusive buzz, you are actually committing a form of adultery.  As your desire for porn grows, your desire for your mate diminishes, is this fair to them?  Porn addiction is a very selfish way to live your life, however, it's ability to destroy lives is almost limitless.   However, even though Porn addiction is very strong, Jesus is even stronger and there are those who will love you through this addiction "GET HELP".  Don't try to end this on your own you don't have too!
