Why You Find Yourself Getting Lost Into Porn


Live For Christ / Friday, January 20th, 2023

We’ll try to get to the bottom of that secret phenomenon called porn addiction sweeping the church and the world these days.

It’s fairly easy to get lost into the deep and deceptive reality of viewing porn due to its addictive, engulfing, and controlling nature.

One of the verses out of the Word of God that explains the deep mystery found at the root of this enslaving behavior is found in this following verse below.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it (Jeremiah 17:9)?

But here are some ideas that can best explain how you’ve gotten lost into it.

What I’m about to reveal to you are some of the things that you need to grab a hold of since they decode the secret mystery plaguing porn addicts.

– You’ve become lost when getting deeply caught up in what you’re getting out of watching porn, what it does for you, and how it makes you feel, which is a feeling that you love when experiencing it at the very moment.

This, in turn, generates an ongoing desire to acquire more of what you’ve been getting in order to either reenjoy or recreate what it did for you just to experience that “feel good” feeling again.

This part above says it all since that is the heart of your problem. It’s what creates the vicious habit loop that you are trapped in.

– You get lost when getting entangled in the realm of feeling, instant gratification, pleasure of the moment, excitement, curiosity, or the first impression you experience when getting tempted to indulge in. The first impression always leaves you with no choice but to give in.

– You get lost by mindlessly clinging onto the sudden impression being felt through the moment when being triggered or tempted to indulge in the sense that it will provide you something you cannot afford to miss at the moment while knowing that you want to stop this behavior.

– You get lost when becoming overly concerned about what you’ll lose if you were to quit viewing porn.

– You get lost when being trapped within the realm of what you are desperately searching in that habit while forgetting that you have a responsibility to please God.

– You get lost into porn when thinking that you know exactly what you’re looking for at first, thus prompting you to set plenty of time aside to look for it with such a fierce determination that you’ll get it sooner or later.

However, as time goes by, it turns out that you didn’t actually know what you’ve been looking for since your desires keep on fluctuating instead toward something else other than what you were searching.

– You get lost after coming to the knowledge that you’re not getting anything meaningful out of that habit, except the same old satisfaction enslaving you; nevertheless, one of your biggest dilemmas is that you still want to do it by pursuing that instant gratification in spite of that.

– You get lost when allowing fleshy desires, sinful intents, and what you are searching to transcend the knowledge of the truth you have. You find yourself being caught up in a dimension of reality where that knowledge of the truth has become irrelevant.

Therefore, you still want to associate yourself with the sinful reality lying outside the realm of God’s truth because it provides instant satisfaction and relief in order to fill in a supposed need.

What complicates the matter even more is that you find yourself being entangled in a highly insidious issue that you probably know so little of when it comes to tackle its deceptive tricks. You’re being outsmarted by that addiction in a big way as a result.

– Most importantly, you get lost when thinking that you can satisfy yourself by getting hooked up to something outside God’s will that wasn’t even meant to satisfy you.

– You get lost when you’ve become disconnected to the spiritual reality, which is the embodiment of God’s presence and power which should have governed your life as a result of being stuck in the fleshly and sensual reality of this world system.

Consequently, both your present and future have become subject to what you want to do now on the ground of past experiences, and what you’re planning on doing in the near future to satisfy insatiable fleshly desires.

God is ultimately pushed aside by your desire to seek more and more of what you want to get out of that habit.

The deep truth hidden behind that type of mindset is that you’re trying to go around or beyond God Himself in order to load your system with a particular substance that will turn your life upside down when it comes to keeping your God-given priorities in check.

As a result, you’ve found yourself venturing in a dangerous thick darkness with no end in sight desperately seeking for some form of satisfaction that will never be found.

It has been months, years, or even decades since you’ve been chasing that elusive satisfaction.

Have you ever gotten a hold of it?

Instead, what you get in return out of that venture is more enslavement. That habit gets to escalate to a whole new level day by day by getting more of you.

It’s mind numbing to even think how long it has been since you’ve been struggling with that porn habit after breaking countless promises that you made to God and yourself.

The continuing enslavement power of your porn addiction lies heavily on what you falsely think and believe that you’ve not either done yet or enjoyed enough that you will never be able to achieve regardless of your determination.

You’ll never be able to procure what you think is missing in this habit. There will always be some form of dissatisfaction haunting you, thus unleashing more and more desires for more of the same thing.

In short, that’s how all your troubles and struggles with porn started. And that’s also how they persist
