  Pornography leads to lack of real emotion http://www.idsnews.com/news/story.php?id=39302&adid=opinion 

Pornography can be defined in many ways, but in common parlance, it usually means material that is sexually explicit and intended primarily for the purpose of sexual arousal (Cline, 2000).  pornography leads men to broad-ranging sexual addictions, breakups in their marriages, and severe depression. and the ever-increasing number of people hooked on pornography indicate that the solution is not quite that quick and simple–and that over and over, the pattern is the same: addiction, desensitization, escalation, and acting out. http://marriageandfamilies.byu.edu/issues/2002/September/trap.aspx

Pornography Use: Consequences and Curesby Paul James Birch –  In addition, the very idea that pornography use is a matter of free choice is challenged by the work of Patrick Carnes, who cogently argues that sexual behavior, including pornography use, is highly susceptible to becoming addictive, which by definition means that self-control—or choice—is lost. http://marriageandfamilies.byu.edu/issues/2002/September/consequences.aspx

Craig Fall: Pornography’s harms—from a Catholic therapist’s perspective “… And let’s make no false assumptions. Pornography is generally produced by men, promoted by men, for the consumption of men, although there are some cases where women are involved in the production … Women are seen as receptacles, nothing more.”
Pornography’s Effects on Adults and Children Dr. Cline describes how porn destroys lives, through examples from his clinical practice and other evidence.
 Pornography, however, does pose subtle dangers worth considering, the  “pervasive disorder” linked even  to consumption of soft-core pornography like Playboy and Penthouse. and inludes  Voyeurism –  Objectification – Validation –  Trophyism –  Fear of true intimacy –  http://www.pureintimacy.org/gr/intimacy/understanding/a0000121.cfm

Putting a FACE to the porn Victims…   

How you feel is not important as how God feels about it firstly. Secondly we have failed to understand how God hates the break down, break up of a family and how he punishes all those person who do so.. whether they admit it or not too,    forr they are punished with a garment of of violence.. see  (Mal 2:16 KJV)  For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. and (Jer 5:7 KJV)  How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses. 8  They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour’s wife. 8  Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? God still does punishes the guilty people many ways besides early  death and sickness..

“Mounties have laid child pornography charges against a man after suspicious photos were found on the Eden Valley reserve. On June 13, a teacher at Chief Jacob Bearspaw school on the reserve discovered several dozen “questionable” photos near a printer and alerted the principal, who called police, said Turner Valley RCMP Sgt. Jim Ross. After a subsequent, and assistance from the Southern Alberta Integrated Child Exploitation Team, police discovered evidence of alleged child exploitation and arrested a 42-year-old man on Friday. Leon Rider of Eden Valley, who works at the school, was charged with sexual interference, possession of child pornography, accessing child pornography, and voyeurism, Ross said. ” http://calsun.canoe.ca/News/Alberta/2008/06/24/5968771-sun.html


 1 Peter 5:8   “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he. may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith” and do note this our personal  active, continual steadfast resistance is always still required to the devil, at all times. Don’t open any doors at all for the devil.  The devil is seeking for any crack he can crawl through in your life. 

All alleged sexual Child exploitation, or any alleged even sexual abuses are next as my father terms them as “unacceptable fantasies” tend to start in the mind, the person has temptations that he or she next falsely believe they have to act them out.. sadly it is undeniable that magazines and the internet do make such temptations  by movies, pictures too readily available  for anyone, adults included too but firstly all abuses, including sexual, or verbal, physical. bullying, slandering,  are firstly unacceptable, even of all children, adults, all male and female, and even all animals now too. I have noted that any persons who can readily abuse a cat or dog will next too readily abuse a child, any person as well. Sadly these  abuses and many other such as drugs, alcoholism, gambling, now have clearly all been increasing not decreasing

For we do not wrestle (not only) against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Every person in life, of any age has an real, big, continual enemy for a start. Regardless of whether you realize it, Satan has targeted you as a victim. Although unseen by the natural eye, this adversary  still is not imaginary nor a mythological character. Satan, the Devil, is a real person… a spirit being, with intelligence, tangible characteristics, and whose incessant goal and ambition is to “steal, kill, and destroy” for the devil aggressively searches for weakness in our  life, hoping to devour us with deception, temptation, or oppression.   Somewhere in the shadows, he and his forces lurk, waiting, planning for the moment they will strike when you’re  likely the weakest too. His method of operation is almost initially always “undercover.”  but he will next use a real person to do his dirty work if he cannot succeed.  Anyone denying his existence, or remaining ignorant of his reality, and his method of operations now, is rather also helping  him, the devil in his goals towards us, goals  of also closing all of our relationships, communications with God himself. Subtly, he even does manipulates hindering circumstances and inspires evil thoughts, false dreams,  or all temptations, even disguising his activities behind the shroud of people or things around us.

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows). (John 10:10)

When Jesus gave his life on the cross as the sacrifice for the personal  sins of the whole world, He also provided the redemption for  us from Satan’s power and dominion over us. “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it” (Col. 2:15). “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). We can Praise God! Satan now really is already a defeated enemy! His legal authority over any of us was neutralized by the finished work of Christ on the cross.

While we all are human, weak, sinful, in the flesh, the good news is why the Devil is described “like” a “roaring lion,” in reality he has no actual authority over you if you do not let him. You can use your authority in Jesus Christ to continually, daily tell him the devil to cease, to dissolve, to depart,  go away, disappear and he next has to do that and will. Do not give into his temptations because he next will only give you more of them too.

(Col 3:5)  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7  In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8  But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Personal active resistance to the devil and his ways, works is still best personal thing still too

(Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26  Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
