Whenever you think of the term LSD what does it conjure up? Do you think about the 70’s hallucinogenic drugs of that era, flower power and hippies? Or do you recall the horror stories about the way it’s effects have left users with mind distorting nightmares and flash-backs?
Well, in a sense pornography could be compared with LSD, in the way that it’s users can have flash-backs of the images that once got them high, along with a tormented lifestyle of no rest, no peace of mind, no understanding of what they are experiencing. LSD addicts are a bit more fortunate because there are lots of helpful programs and rehab available. But for the porn addict, there has been very little help, that is until now.
Numerous non faith based organisations have sprung up in recent years confirming just how porn effects our brain, our behaviour and our attitudes to life and everyone around us. Check out these guys yourbrainonporn.com. The amazing thing is, all of this useful scientific information has just confirmed what scripture has been saying for the last 2000 yrs.
Consider Romans 1- 28 KJV. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; the ESV calls it a debased mind, the NIV a depraved mind, the Amplified a reprobate mind, the NLT a foolish mind, NLV a sinful mind, Good News a corrupted mind, CEB a defective mind. So whatever you want to call it scripture has it covered. But of course the ‘L’ ‘S’ ‘D’ we are talking about here isn’t a drug. It’s found in James 1v15: Then when LUST hath conceived, it bringeth forth SIN: and sin when it is finished, bringeth forth DEATH. If Pornography is your choice of drug it can be as harmful as the chemical substances that drug addicts pump into their bodies. The word of God makes it clear that we are a temple of the Holy Spirit, so how can He share His glory with all the filth that has been allowed in?
