Married men: your porn habit is an adultery habit

The Matt Walsh Blog

I know a guy who cheats on his wife. He cheats on her every day. He cheats on her multiple times a day. He’s a husband and a father and a serial adulterer.

I shouldn’t know this fact about him, but it came up in conversation a few days ago. We were talking about the divorce rate; both of us gave our theories as to why the statistics are so high. I mentioned in my diagnosis a few studies that show pornography to be a root cause in over 50 percent of divorces annually.

He laughed. “People don’t get divorced over porn.” He went on to explain that porn isn’t a “big deal” to most people. It’s not “like it’s cheating or something.” He told me that he looks at it multiple times daily. His wife, he insisted, might be a little peeved if she knew the extent of…

    My comments left on the blog quoted above:
    So what is the point of this being a sin? What is the root it is attacking? It attacks our loyalty to our spouses and to God and what He had to say about it. Is it any wonder He uses language in Scripture such as harlot to show how the religious system prostitutes itself for the exchange of money and souls. God desires loyal and faithful disciples, not those wishing to fulfill the desires of their flesh! Any reasoning beyond this is an excuse to escape the ever looming righteous judgment of a Holy God. Let us repent of such foolish things and move forward in the sanctifying work of the Lord. As Jesus told the adulteress in the Gospel “sin no more”

    2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

    7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

    11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

    And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

    12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
    (John 8:2-12)

    My comment:

    As a young christian I was addicted to porn. Three things that helped me get the victory were.

    1) Finally being taught the truth about Jesus, that he died to save me from my sin, not so I could be a white washed tomb who went to church but was full of dead mens bones and a slave to sin

    2) The love of God, that Jesus deserved my best, that grace deserves whole hearted devotion

    3) The fact that those professing christians who continue on in known, habitual, unrepentant sin will find themselves condemned in hell forever, however much their laodecian pastors tell them otherwise.

    1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

    For brothers who hate this sin but feel in bondage to it I heard a sermon by David Wilkerson that really helped me in understanding the above three points. The spirit of the wild donkey… http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=12&commentView=itemComments

    ————————> For Unbelievers

    For those leaving mocking comments, take the time to see if you are really a good person or if you are a depraved sinner who deserves hell.

  3. Regardless of the stripe and color of sin, all of it aims to usurp Jesus’ desire to reside upon the throne of our hearts. Where a man attempts to replace Jesus with something or someone else, that thing can quickly become addictive and even idolatrous. There is a reason we are commanded to choose this day in whom we will serve, the adversaries are all about us, none closer than uncrucified self to one’s own destruction.
    Sin is dangerous and unhealthy. Prolonged sin is deceptive and ultimately controlling. It’s end is death, death of one’s character first, the death of one’s relationships second and ultimately death to one’s soul.
    One remedy remains: “He who follows ME will not walk in darkness”
    Thank God for the few like this author who tell it like it actually is. That goes for your comment as well Al.

    Great comment …

    Reblogged this on spiritualabusesanctuary and commented:
    I’ve reblogged this topic on my site because almost daily there are search terms on my stats from Christian men seeking help because of their wives not wanting intimacy with them. Also…because I thought the comments from the brothers on Brother Al’s site were more helpful in receiving deliverance from porn bondage. Intimacy is a two way street. I’ve cautioned wives before about not putting a stumbling block in their husbands way by continually refusing intimacy.
