Dealing with Pornography

by on September 11, 2013

Prepare yourself (be responsible for yourself)
Be ‘a man’, not one of ‘the men’ (John 4)
Make transition from boyhood to manhood
Prayer on your knees
Music in your heart

Protect the girls (be responsible for them)
Guard her- life, heart, integrity, purity, reputation
You are responsible to God for her
Especially for your own wife
All women must be safe in your presence
“If you Love one woman-You prove that you love them all
If you ‘love’ many women-You prove that you love none of them”

Praise the Lord (be responsible to God)
For holiness read Psalms
For wisdom read Proverbs
Proverbs 5:15-21-your own wife
Isaiah 26:3 – peace and rest
Psalm 101 – no evil before your eyes
Psalm 4 – stand in awe of God or sin?
Psalm 84 – you can go from victory to victory
Joshua 7:21 – dealing with temptation
Our victory over Satan’s temptations brings
Glory to God in heaven (“Thine is the glory”)
Our failure in dealing with Satan’s temptations brings reproach to God in Heaven
