My friend PJ Smyth preached the above video sermon at the Movement Conference (other videos also available online).  He began by saying “”I want to talk about porn.”  This is a very good sermon that I highly commend you consider watching, especially if you are a man, though of course if you are a woman who has become hooked on porn this will also be very relevant for you.

Here are a few notes I took when I watched this live online:

  • “Every second 3000 dollars are spent on porn. 40% of Christians say they struggle with it. Porn revolution is reprogramming women also”
  • “porn is like trying to find out about a Beethoven symphony by listening to someone grunt a few bars”
  • “Women know men like porn. They feel they can’t compete with the porn girls so it destroys their self esteem”
  • “Porn girls never say no.” so the imaginery ruins real relationships
  • “to Adam, Eve was perfect. She was his standard of beauty. Porn cuts that.”
  • “the purpose of porn is to look at a woman lustfully. To Jesus that’s adultery.”
  • “freedom isn’t the absence of restrictions it’s the presence of the right restrictions..eg a parachute”
  • “sex in marriage is so important the devil does everything he can to get us into bed before we are married & stay out of bed when we are”
  • “two ways to overcome sin: to receive power from God and for US to resist sin”
  • “make a covenant and don’t lend your eyes out to sin. God has given you eyelids”
  • “about 60% of the power of sin dissipates the moment you confess it to someone else”
  • “the gospel & marriage teaches me that I am WAY worse than I thought, AND that I am WAY more loved & accepted than I thought.”
  • “be a Churchill not a Chamberlain with sin”
  • “spending time in Gods presence is one of the most underrated ways to deal with sin”
  • “the gospel melts us and our hearts area changed by a higher affection”
  • “godliness with contentment is a big destroyer of the I don’t have enough root of sin” ‪

UPDATE:  One man’s story Naked Women, Naked Girls is definitely worth a read.

  • you are gay

    I don’t care if you chose to live a sterile life because of your beliefs, the problem I have with most people of faith is they (you) have a need to tell other how to live their lives & if YOU think something is wrong then nobody should do it. I keep my beliefs or lack there of to myself, keep yours to yourself and the world would be a much better place.
