Pornography Is Always a Sinful Choice

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

Have you ever wondered if pornography is all right
to stimulate a married couple?

Please read on.

( Matthew 5:28 )

Are pornographic movies OK for a husband and wife?
This is a question I get hundreds of times every week.
The answer is NO. The reason is because pornography
involves sexual fantasies with someone OTHER than your
spouse. THAT is why it is a sin. This Devotional
will spark the natural question, "what is acceptable
between a husband and wife?" God created sex. It is
beautiful and perfect when enjoyed in the CONTEXT GOD
CREATED IT. That context is a man and woman, who are

I have always held that whatever a husband and wife
enjoy sexually is fine as long as it is done in
private and they BOTH are open to it. No spouse
should be forced to engage in sexual acts that they
are not comfortable with. Also, the line is drawn
when it gets into fantasies involving other people.
THAT is why pornography is not acceptable for a
husband and wife since by its VERY nature,
pornography is fantasizing about other people.

Pornography is a problem many men AND women have
battled for a long time. With the advent of the
Internet, it has made accessibility to pornography
incredibly easy and has now become a very real
societal problem. As with all problems in society,
many Christians also end up caught in the traps the
enemy has laid to destroy people's lives. Let me
say up front, DO NOT underestimate the destructive
power of pornography.

Like all sin, it starts almost innocently, but
always escalates. One day you are browsing through
X-rated pictures, and the next you are actually
involved in a real physical relationship. One day
you are chatting with someone, the next day your
chat becomes more graphic, and then you are actually
sitting next to them. Like all sin, there is a
seductiveness that eases you into it, and one day you
wake up in total bondage to that sin.

The reason pornography is a sin is because God's
plan for sexuality is for one man, with one woman,
for one lifetime. Our sexual thoughts are to be
only about that person God gives us to share our
life with. ALL other thoughts are impure.
Fantasies take our mind to places we shouldn't be
going. Even if we never act on them. The reason
is Jesus said if you lust in your heart, you have
already committed the act. Is it a high standard?
Yes! But God has called us to live at a high
level in our life. We are to live above the low
standards of this world.

We are to find our sexual satisfaction in the mate
God gives us to share our life with as our husband
or wife. That means very simply this. First of
all, if you are NOT married, you need to keep your
thoughts pure and save not only your body, but your
mind for the one God has for your life. If you are
married, your sexual thoughts and activities are to
be ONLY with your husband or wife. Anything else
is not God's plan and is sin!!!

Now that we know what God expects, let's talk about
real life. Read, and re-read the second paragraph.
There is to be NO compromise. This is what God
expects from us. Now, how do we get to that point?
The best case is you are still young, have not been
exposed to pornography, you have the warning of this
message to guard yourself against it. For those who
have been exposed in the past to pornography, the
key is to "renew your mind" and flush it out. We do
that each day using the spiritual detergent of
God's Word. Stay away from pornography. Guard your
thought life.

There are those who are currently involved in
pornography at some level. It is bondage. Before you
can get victory over it, you have to want to quit.
Once you get to that point, then realize it is a
battle. Like any battle, to see victory you need a
battle plan. You need one or several people in your
life to be accountable to. You need the strength each
day only the Lord can give you. There is victory over
pornography just like any other sin.

I love you and will be praying for you. I realize
this is hitting home with many of you. Let it be a
special tap on the shoulder from God that now is
the time to deal with this issue in your life. It
isn't going to change until YOU decide to change.
As you know, any time we pervert the original plan
of God, things never really work. We always get
cheated out of the best God has for us when we
settle for what the world offers. You can only
know the true blessings of God, the fullness of
what life can give, when we are in His will, living
life His way.

God is in the deliverance business, and I know that
He can deliver you from the bondage of pornography.
I will be praying for those people fighting this
sin in their life and believing God to touch their
heart, bring them under conviction, and help them to
have the courage to take the steps necessary to walk
away from this sin and live a victorious life. He
is able, and can set you free. God is STILL in the
deliverance business!!! God gave a man and woman
who are married the gift of sex. God is the giver
of all good and perfect gifts. Don't pervert it or
abuse it, but enjoy this wonderful gift by not
polluting it with pornography.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
