Joe from chaseGodtv recounts his personal battle against pornography and shows us why abstaining from it is the path to true freedom.

Key Points:

  • Many people struggle with porn addiction.
  • Pornography, as we know it today, is not directly addressed in the Bible.
  • Pornography is not real.
  • Sex isn’t wrong.
  • The longer you are addicted, the more addicted you will become.
  • Porn corrupts our view of others.
  • Freedom from pornography does not come through guilt but through grace.

Quote This:

Proverbs 27:20 Just as Death and Destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied.
