Porn is so common in our world that we may be tempted to think it is harmless. Nothing could be further from from the truth.
This is the most important step and the one that is most often overlooked. Watch Pastor Mike Novotny’s video to hear that your heavenly Father loves you desperately and has sent his Son to show it. In the power of forgiveness and compelled by his love, get motivated to face Satan and this sin head on.
Because of the addictive nature of this sin, conquering it takes an intense spiritual, emotional, and physical struggle. It’s important to accurately portray the fierceness of that struggle, so that you don’t underestimate it. But we also try to show that despite all the power that Satan has going for him, Christ is infinitely stronger.
Both research and the experience of millions of people fighting various addictions show that personal accountability is a make or break factor. With it, victory is much more likely. Without it, victory is practically impossible.
Having a battle plan is also crucial for victory. You need to know what to expect, what kind of counterattacks Satan will throw at you. You also will need plans for how you will respond, and who will be making sure you follow through on your plan.
The next and hardest step is to tell someone. Now is the time absolutely to trust your Savior, likely more than you have ever had to trust him in the past.
