God has put it to my attention how vile and sinful this world has become. Today, I will speak on just one of these sins. The topic at hand is pornography. I just pray that this message awakens anyone living in this sin to repentance before God. Let me get right into why porn is evil. To understand this we must open the Bible and read from Jesus’s own words. 1“I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Every time a person uses some sort of device to bring up images or videos of naked woman or men, their souls are given over to Satan’s power. The lusts of their flesh are coming out in full force. Their eyes are 4“full of adultery” and because of this, they 4“cannot cease from sin”. They have no power over this evil on their own. What is this causing? Instead of keeping intimacy in marriage, between husband and wife, these people are given over to sexual perversions, that should only be kept in marriage. God hates the act of adultery, which is also porn. I say adultery since under Jesus’s terms our lustful desires for another is adultery. His wrath surely is upon everyone that is involved with this. James records, 3“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” God has reserved 4“the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.”
When people try to cover the wicked nature of pornography, they are truly becoming an enemy to God. As an enemy, they are, in fact, fighting against God’s will and holy nature. Everybody that is found in this manner, after death, will be severely punished. Only repentance, while in this life, can stop a person from being cast out into hell fire for all eternity. Here’s what Paul has said about people living in sin. 2“Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” As was taught, living in willful sinful will keep us out of heaven. As you can see, adultery is on this list. If Jesus’s teaching is true, which it is, and you are addicted to pornography, than you are in a lot of trouble. Continuing to live this way is allowing Satan to take you by the hand and lead you straight to hell. There is a way out of this drug addiction and Jesus is the way. If you are addicted, then come to God immediately in confession. Don’t keep it a secret any longer. Allow the Lord to brake your chains. If your heart is sincere, then the Lord will 3“cleanse your hands”. You will be made free in the name of Jesus. There is freedom through Christ the Lord. In His name 2“ye are washed,” 2“ye are sanctified,” and 2“ye are justified”. All of this is done 2“by the Spirit of our God.” God bless you in your new walk with Christ.
Here is a guide to what Pornography truly really is:
Pornography = Vile lusts of the flesh = Adultery = Wrath of God = Eternal punishment in hell.
Only through sincere confession and repentance can Jesus free a person from the vile acts of pornography.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I know that many people are suffering right now with the addiction to pornography. It saddens me to see this among so many people in this generation. Technology has been such a good thing for Your work but also a major hindrance with things like pornography. It truly sickens me that we live in a world where it is so easily accessible. Lord, it saddens me to know that people are hooked on it. Just as I was once, they are so deceived by their lustful intentions. I know they must feel the guilt and shame each time they commit such evil acts. Lord, will You convict these people that what they are in to is an abomination in Your sight. Will You help all church goers know that this sin needs dealt with. To put off our repentance is only leading us apart from Your presence and on a path to destruction. Lord, will you lead them off that path? Will you take all those that are sincere in their confessions, and lead them from darkness and into Your light? I know that You can do all things. I ask that You break those chains of addiction. Set them free from slavery. Bring them into Your love. May their hearts turn from their lusts towards loving one another, as You love us. I love You so much Lord. You are greater than all things. I give my life to You. Take anything that is sinful from my heart. I love You more. Amen.

3James 4:1-8 (KJV)
1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
42 Peter 2:9-15 (KJV)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
