Bring It On: Divorce

I am addicted to porn and I am weak this way, what can I do to correct this? In Matthew, it explains that if adultery is committed within the marriage then divorce is permitted. But does that mean that the one who did not commit adultery is ... Read Transcript


Terry: WE'VE GOT A FEW

MINUTES LEFT TO ANSWER SOME

OF YOUR E-MAIL.

THIS IS FROM DANNY, PAT, WHO

SAYS, "I NEED SOME HELP.

I KEEP ASKING JESUS TO

FORGIVE ME, BUT I STILL LOOK

AT PORN.

EVERY TIME I GET SAD, MAD,

WORRIED OR DISTRESSED, I

TURN TO PORN."

Pat: I THINK YOU HAVE

ANSWERED YOUR OWN QUESTION.

WE'RE SEXUAL BEINGS, THERE

IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

AND MEN ARE SEXUAL IN TERMS

OF VISUAL, YOU KNOW.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT SOMETHING,

IT AROUSES YOU SEXUALLY.

I THINK PORN IS TOTALLY

BORING.

IT'S JUST A BIG DRAG.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, WITH

DANNY, WHAT DO YOU DO?

YOU STOP WATCHING THE CABLE

TV CHANNELS.

YOU DON'T LOOK AT THE PORN

CHANNEL BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO

TUNE THEM IN.

AND YOU FLEE FROM LUST.

IT MEANS YOU'VE GOT TO FOCUS

YOUR MIND ON SOMETHING

ELSE.

START READING.

READ MYSTERIES, READ

FICTION, READ THE BIBLE --

READ ANYTHING BUT GET AWAY

FROM THE SEX STUFF.

IT'S EVERYWHERE.

Terry: YOU HAVE TO

REPLACE IT WITH SOMETHING

ELSE, IS WHAT YOU'RE

SAYING?

Pat: GO OUT AND

EXERCISE, RUN, PLAY

FOOTBALL, THROW FREES

BEES -- WHATEVER YOU DO --

GO TO THE GYM, LIFT

WEIGHTS.

DO ANYTHING EXCEPT SITTING

AROUND.

YOU SAY I GET DEPRESSED, AND

SO I'VE GOT TO HAVE A FIX

AND SO YOU TURN THE NOB OR

FLIP THE CHANNEL, WHATEVER

IT IS.

YOU'VE GOT TO RECOGNIZE

THOSE THINGS ARE THERE, AND

PORNOGRAPHERS ARE OUT THERE

SEDUCING YOU AND YOU ARE

HOOKED.

ALL I CAN SAY IS FILL YOUR

LIFE WITH SOMETHING BETTER,

AND YOU'VE GOT TO SAY NO.

YOU'VE GOT TO SAY TODAY I'M

NOT GOING TO WATCH PORN.

THE NEXT DAY, TODAY I'M NOT

GOING TO WATCH PORN.

Terry: JUST DO TODAY.

Pat: JUST TODAY.

DON'T MAKE THE COMMITMENT

FOR THE NEXT 100 YEARS.

JUST TODAY I'M NOT GOING TO

WATCH IT.

AND GET SOMETHING BETTER.

GET A LIBRARY OF BOOKS.

GO TO BARN BARNES AND NOBEL

AND BY SOME BOOKS.

Terry: PAT, "IF

ADULTERY IS IN COMMITTED IN

A MARRIAGE, DIVORCE IS

OKAY.

OKAY."

Pat: JESUS' TEACHING ON

MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE AND

ADULTERY IS CONFUSING.

NEVERTHELESS, THERE IT IS.

AND THIS IS A REASON FOR

DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE.

SO I GUESS YOU SAY THE

PERSON WHO IS COMMITTING

ADULTERY, IS HE CONTINUING

TO BE BOUND?

APPARENTLY THE MARRIAGE HAS

BEEN BROKEN UP.

BUT IT IS A DIFFICULT

SUBJECT, AND I DON'T THINK

ATHEOLOGEN HAS COME UP WITH

THE ANSWERS.
