Top Highlights

“In these conversations, it becomes quite clear that the issues men have with pornography have very little if anything to do with pornography itself and everything to do with a poor view of their lives. They struggle with their self-image, who they are, and what they should be doing as men. And they struggle with what their relationship with God should be.” (source)

“The point in these examples is twofold: first, a commitment to sobriety is a lot more difficult – we would argue impossible – without first admitting that you are not only powerless over your addiction but also powerless within the universe (more on this in just a moment); and second, if you really want to be a leader, a decider, a champion, you have the opportunity, right now, to make decisions for yourself instead of letting someone else make them for you.” (source)

“4. Finally, seeking accountability offers you a wonderful opportunity to start trusting and relying on God.” (source)

“While we may not ingest or inject pornography into our systems to get a high (like we would with, say, cocaine or heroin), pornography use triggers the brain to produce neurochemicals that give us highs similar to other drugs. Pornography, Reisman writes, kick-starts ‘endogenous LSD, adrenaline/norepinephrine, morphine like neurochemicals for a hormonal flood, a ‘rush’ allegedly analogous to the rush attained using various street drugs.’” (source)

“The key to getting to the heart of our challenge with pornography is to understand God’s purpose for our lives. In understanding our purpose, we can set our eyes on something more significant, more pleasurable, and more rewarding than pornography or anything else this world can offer.” (source)
