10 Ways Good Guys Get Trapped by Porn

If we don’t take the necessary precautions—and stay intentional—we will leave ourselves open to this not-so-subtle sexual sin.

"It’s no secret—porn is taking men out left and right."

"If you’re a guy, it’s pretty safe to say you’ve probably struggled with porn—or the temptation of porn—and you’ve seen the devastating effects porn has on relationships."

"Viewing porn is a major obstacle to experiencing the abundant life God gives us freely through the cross."

"Porn is enslaving, and we were called to be free."

Porn like every other addictive behavior is a behavior used to regain control over an emotional state. A quick fix or mood changer for how we feel.
The real cause is when circumstances in our life become overwhelming, causing us to feel helpless and out of control. Using porn is actually a way of regaining control of how we want to feel. Porn is a quick fix or mood changer just like drugs. Conquering any true addiction is found in understanding and managing emotions.

Do you need a displaced quick fix or mood changer for life, or can you face life directly?
Addiction is a substitute or Displaced behavior used to regain control of intolerably helpless feelings of being trapped, powerless and out of control.
Direct behavior is the best behavior used to regain control over our feelings with the capacity to see things from God's perspective and to respond according to scriptural principles.
The Direct antidote has been taught for over 2000 years by Jesus Christ. Give God control (2 Cor.12-9-10) and God will return that control with a Helper (John 14:16) that will motivate and give purpose to you with new values or fruits of the Holy Spirit, not the least of which is self-control! (Galatians 5:22-23). This is behavioral science and scripture.

We are called to be free. The choice is always yours. Change your thinking and change your life.

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
