Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer? June 2, 2016

Editor’s note: Another of those Pearl letters. This one allows Michael to show off what he really thinks about people who struggle with addictions or even possible mental illness driving self-medication. It’s all so simple and non-loving in Pearl world. I don’t know what the ultimate answer is for those with these types of struggles, but I know it likely involves more kindness, compassion and legitimate treatment than anything in their world.

Dear Michael,
I am a husband and a stepfather of a three-year-old. I’m hooked on pornography. I sometimes think I can’t make it without it.

I read your pamphlet Pornography, Road To Hell, and it fit me. I’m 29 and I need someone to talk to. I need lot’s of prayers. I want to stop this bondage I am in. I could use some help. God bless your website.

MICHAEL ANSWERS
You don’t need to talk to anyone. You don’t need help. You don’t need prayer. You need to repent. Nearly every porno freak to whom I have spoken has expressed a desire to be free from his addiction. The same is true of alcoholics and dopeheads. I have spoken with prostitutes and Sodomites. They all say the same thing. They are miserable; life is a disappointment. They know they are in trouble. They want to quit very badly, but they are “so dependent on it.” I have seen them cry, swear they will never do it again, and then go right back. They will confess their sins, ask for special prayer, let you cast the devils out of them, and then crawl back to their sin. Many professing Christians, preachers and priests included, are caught in a web of debauchery.
I said you don’t need to talk to anyone, because no one can help you. You don’t have an emotional problem that you need to “work through.” You don’t need affirmation or understanding. Yours is not a failure of information. You are a sinner, living after the flesh, and you are dead in trespasses and sins. No counselor can help you deal with your sin.
