Friday Link Highlight – A Picture of What Porn Does

Here is a very interesting info graphic of the effects of porn.  This was the highest clicked link from my Monday post.

A few thoughts:

1. Overwhelming

This graphic is simply overwhelming.  I’ve known many men who have struggled and do struggle with pornography.  These stats show why  the fight is worth it.  Higher rates of divorce, aggressive behaviors, cyber sex – none of these should surprise us as effects of pornography viewing in people’s lives.  There are MANY effects.

2. Help

There is hope.  As many guys I know who’ve struggled, I know just as many who have overcome.  Jesus is powerful, so is the gospel.  Here is one of the best on-line reads I can recommend:

This book is full of reality as well as encouragement; truly a model of speaking truth AND grace.

3. Struggling and don’t know what to do?

Begin by telling God about this problem.  Then, seek out a trusted friend, pastor, counselor, whoever, and begin the process of fighting.  I hope you will know there is a love we share as Christians that can help you make strides and eventually overcome this sin – all because of the blood and because of the grace of Jesus.
