The Lie of Porn

Porn is gripping, ruins marriages, is addictive, and while you are single will offer a lie that it is harmless since you are not in a relationship. Porn is not harmless. It affects women and men of all ages and according to 25% of all search requests in the US are pornography related and 34% of church going women admit to looking at pornography. 

Watch this video of a testimony from Nate Larkin to see how gripping porn can be and the effects it has on your life.

Hebrews 12:4 says “In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” Can anyone reading this say they have resisted looking at pornography to the point of shedding your own blood? In Romans 7 Paul talks about his desire to do good but still falling into sin, until the power of the cross takes over your life. As a single adult, you may think that you looking at pornography is ok since you are not in a relationship. We have even heard singles say it is acceptable because they may never find someone and that is an outlet for them. Matthew 5:28 tells us that even looking at someone in lust is committing sin in our hearts. Yes it is a sin, and yes the Lord expects you to live a life free of pornography. Have you truly resisted in your fight with pornography? To the point of shedding your own blood?

As a single adult male or female, one day you may find someone and enter into a relationship, your actions regarding lust and pornography will be an issue. Marriage does not fix lust and addiction to pornography. This is a heart issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. If you need help with breaking this addition, please visit for resources and internet accountability tools. Remember, there is NO internet accountability tool made that can keep you from finding pornography. You must make a stand before God and in your heart with an accountability partner to make it “Not an Option.” Make a stand today to make porn “Not an Option” in your life and walk in a new light free from the darkness of pornography.

Remembering 9/11 in 2013

September 11th, 2001, planes used as missiles attacked our nation and thousands were dead. September 11th, 2012, 11 years after the original attack on our nation we are attacked again overseas in an embassy, many including our ambassador are dead. 9/11 should not just be another day, but a day that we remember and share the stories of that day.

Below is a video of one mans journey leading up to 9/11 and how God used that day to bolden his faith. It is almost 10 minutes long, but we promise as you watch the gripping story it will not feel that long. Take time today to remember where you were 12 years ago. Share that story with others and be bold in your faith. 9/11 saw an incredible surge in church attendance and followers of Christ.

Maybe you were very young on 9/11 and you don’t have much of a story to tell, or maybe like some your life was forever changed on that day. Reflect on the past 12 years and where you have come from and where God is leading you. Are you closer to God than you were then? Maybe it is time to take action and build a closer relationship with God. Time is like a blink of an eye, start living for Christ,
