interesting topic

 

the question itself is NOT OKAY

How can you write CHRISTians and pornography in the same sentence? like seriously now

please be serious

 

before you watch a movies, of any age the contents are addressed loud.

Christians are led by the Lord Holy Spirit.

 

You should get MATERIALS ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 

EVERYTHING YOU LISTERN TO, EVERYTHING YOU WATCH, THESE ARE YOUR TEACHERS.

 

This videos and activities are like being in a merry go round for like 20mins and then you get back in line to pay for another ride that in the first place it didnt take you anywhere.

Go for stuff that add +ve value to your life because some of the girls you are watching are victims of abuse and trafficking and are in need of your prayers

 

NO,Thats having imaginary sex,of which Jesus said if u lust with woman u have already commited adultery with her,its just the same as fornication,

 

  AMEN   MY SISTER YOU ARE RIGHT...............   NO ...NO... NO TO PORNOGRAPHY.  IT DEFILES US  ,WE ARE TEMPLES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ..NOT EVIL SPIRITS

 

it is wrong.dont allow the devil to program you.Your soul  is designed to conform to what you suject it the most.choose wisely what you subject yourself to ALWAYS

 

Pornography is defined as "writings, pictures, films, etc, designed to stimulate sexual excitement".

 

1 John 2;

15* Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16* For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

17* The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

 

 

From the above verse, there are two types of lust, namely; the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes. But what exactly is lust? Lets define what lust is using the Word of God;

 

Genesis 2;

15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;

17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.

 

Genesis 3;

6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

 

From the above verses we can deduce what lust is; it is desiring forbidden fruit. Eve desired to eat from the tree that God commanded them not to eat from. So, lust is NOT simply desire, it is illicit, unlawful or forbidden desire. Before Eve ate from the tree, there was already lust of the eyes involved; " the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye".

 

Now, lets look at what Jesus said; "But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart."  Pornography is designed to make you lust with your eyes and commit fornication in your heart. God is not pleased with lust.

 

I always ask myself "WHY?' and usually when i don't have an answer to the question, i totally see the thing not weath doing.

 

amen to that sister, and l believe is high time we began refusing to be slaves of the devil. we should also not forget that these are not the only tactics that the devil is using, there is the music we listen to as well

 

Its a very good topic you have raised alot of christians holy ghost filled and tongue talking are victims in these area.......Just stop it if you are doing it secretly or habitually....you can...just STOP it and walk away from such things...if you cant talk about it in public or openly to your friends then prove positive its Not good and its shameful. We have been delivered from the corruption that is in this world lets stay delivered. Like i said if you are doing it. JUST STOP. COS YOU CAN. SAY I STOP. Glory to God

 

Any thing that dosenot add to your spiritual growth cut it off,ok if you see your Pastor or someone you're looking up to doing such things how would you fill.just cut that part off your Life.Rather I acknowledge you to listen and watch Pastors massage.sturdy Gods world like never befor,Build the Arc of your Life.Against the Flood of Life.

And obey to simple instructions form Your Man of God....Thanks.

 

interesting avatar....

 

NO TO PORN, NO TO FLICKS WITH DODGY CONTENT.....your spirit ought to be alerted when you are exposed to these things before you watch them. if not then i think you need to pray for guidance.

 

i dont have an actual opinion in this matter but i'd like to point out this kind of behaviour that brethen tend to potray to our dear people of God, lets be very objective and not subjetive to questions like this, there are people out there who sincerely do not know about these things and we thank God for yookos to provide a platform for our spiritual growth and nurishment.

 

a renouned musician called 'Kirk Franklin' (a man of God knew by millions of people) had the same problem. He was addicted to porn so badly that it almost crippled his marriage, lets not over-react to such questions and i seriously believe that there is no stupid or foolish question!!, people are suffering genuinely to the devil's deceitfullness and instead of ridiculing!!! we should admonish

 

 

 

 

 

I must agree with Miles alot of people don't know and that's why yookos is here now... pornography for Christians is a big no no..why?... because in the long run of life it affacts your life, you mind is very important to God and that is why you must protect it.

 

Brethren,your mind is a door way to your spirit,such videos will sure affect your mind & will bring your spirit down though you are still the righteousness of God. You are made by what you hear,read,watch,speak etc.you want to keep God s fire burning in your life,avoid those videos or magazines. Its not a sin to watch them,its abt you! WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING,THEREFORE GET IT.........

 

i agree with u Mighty Man! A word of advice, since the mind is the doorway to man's spirit, it is not wise to congest the mind with pornography as this doesn't help one to realise who they are in Christ. To those who are porn addicts, shift your attention away from your challenge and look unto Jesus by listening to as many sermons as u can and medidating on the word, it will definately make you what it talks about!

 

Above or Below 18yrs is NOT an issue  here !!!

 

The Issue is that you are a Christian , !!!!!!!

 

AND THAT BRINGS THE END OF THIS DISCUSSION,

Because you were bought with the price , the priceless blood of Christ Jesus.

 

Are those people in those pictures / film glorifying God with what they are doing?

 

And as for you watching such what are your intentions ?? What are u gaining , Is God pleased ???

 

1 Cor 6 vs 15 'DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT YOUR BODIES ARE MEMBERS OF CHRIST? SHALL I THEN TAKE THE MEMBERS OF CHRIST AND MAKE THEM MEMBERS OF A HARLOT ? CERTAINLY NOT !

 

Dont forget your body ( including ur eyes) is a Temple of the Holy Spirit ..

.

Proverbs 4 vs 23 warns us to 'GUARD OUR HEARTS WITH ALL DILIGENCE.

 

Dats true

 

I thot we were clearly told in the scriptures to guard our hearts with all diligence? How is tha possible with pornography My dear the answer is nigh you right in your heart and mouth....................

 

LEBRONDE!!! U are burning with words of greater truths my brada!

 

Christian or not PORNOGRAPHY is a no!! First of all what happens in there is immoral and can actually complicate things for you. Next thing you want to  copy what is been done... A normal normal normal person would not do that. It takes a demon to shadow such shame.

As a christian we have very powerful minds. What you take in is what you will produce and it will be your language so if you are going to feed on porn you will produce pornography.  You want to transform your mind with the word otherwise you will just corrupt it.

 

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO AND EMPHATICALLY NO... YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND CANNOT CONFORM YOURSELF TO THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!

 

No No! you are carrying God in you and watching porn thats so absurd dont ever do that, it is nor right.. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world this include porn, sickness, poverty, failure, Greater, Greater is He that is in you than the deil that is in the world

 

the question asked goes against the spirit.the bible says that we are not to be like carnel men but rather of the SPIRITUAL. now if thhis question is looking for justification or explanation. one can only think twice before answering such a question because to the GOD KIND OF CHILD, such is not even an option because when one sits down to watch such, they are lusting over the worldly women or men.

 

you first need to ask yourself who you are watchin it for? because you are here for the LORD NOT FOR YOUR OWN SELFISH NEEDS. whether the spirit is with you? whether you would do such in the presents of the LORD? whether it is somthing the LORD would want you to do AND if this action contributes to the growth of the KINGDOM OF GOD.

 

PORN IS CREATED BY 'MAN' AND WE ARE NOT TO WORSHIP THE WORKS OF 'MAN'

 

RATHER WE SHOULD RESPECT AND CHARISH WHAT THE LORD HAS MADE - OUR BODIES WHICH ARE HIS TEMPLE.

 

GOD BLESS

 

The Bible says Flee from sexual immorality, If you do your research u'l find that the word Sexual immorality is taken from the greek word 'porneia' from which we get the english word Porn so biblically it is wrong. There are many instances in the bible where we are warned against sexual immorality which is equivalent to Porn.

 

BIG NO!!remmenber we are not of this world!

 

dont think it. its terrible not easy 2 come out 4rm. flee

 

NO NO NO not to pornography my dear its not worth a christian watching

 

Just a scenario: A wife insists to watch pornographic movie with the husband before they have sex every time.The wife claims that she finds pleasure thru the movie and further claims that she would not feel adequetly aroused unless the two watch a ponographic movie.The couple also claim that they use the movies to learn different sex styles or positions hence making their sex life very much interesting. The couple also claim that they have learnt a lot of styles through watching these movies. Styles which they were never taught as they were growing. This they claim strenghtens their relationship or marriage since the two really feel satisfied. The couple claims that they never play the pornographic movies unless it is strictly for the purpose mentioned above and the movies are kept as private as possible just like the two guards their bedroom to be a very private area.No one knows what happens in that room except for the two. The couple believe in Jesus Christ and fellowship a lot!!!

 

What advice can we give to this couple????????

 

I am looking for Wise advice here please becauses I know this will help many marriages out there.If you are not yet married I suggest you reserve your commets since I suppose you might lack experience in this field.

 

Thank you.

 

In God We Trust.

 

I am not married, I lack the experience but I will take a shot anyway!

 

God is the engineer of sex, He created it, not man. He knows how to get the best sexual experiences (He created our bodies, remember?  ). Like every other area of  a christians life; sex life must also be submitted to God. A very interesting point to note; in Gods original design both the man and woman are "supposed" to be virgins when they marry and learn as they go along. Thats because learning is supposed to be part of the fun!!! But we all know that hardly ever happens these days.

 

The Holy Spirit is our teacher, He can teach you what to do in the marriage bed! How did Adam and Eve figure out what to do since their were the very first people to have intercourse? They certainly did not make use of porn to aid their love-making!

 

So, such a couple just needs to increase in the knowledge of Gods word.

 

How can any married couple get the best sexual experiences? The answer is actually in the bible (thank you Jesus, the bible is my manual for my life);

 

1 Corinthians 7:

3 The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs.

4 The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife.

 

There are number of things to note in the above verses:

How can a man a husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and how can the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs? By communicating. That means a man must listen to his wife and virce versa. So, the wife and husband must be able to talk about their sexual needs. For instance, a wife can say I like it when you do this, the man can say can we try this etc...

A man must put his wife's sexual needs before his own and vice versa. Sex is more about giving more than recieving.

Look at this "wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife". Now that does not mean that either spouse has a right to demand a sexual act that the other person is not comfortable doing, rather it means both parties have rights to freely do what they like with each others bodies as long as it is mutually agreed upon and it does not cause physical pain or leaves either spouse feeling demean.

 

If you have a man that is always seeking please his wife sexaully and also a woman that is always seeking to please his husband sexually, that equals an exciting and flourishing sex-life! No porn!!! Apply the Word of God!

 

Breathren! The question u should ask urself is, is wat e people are doing right(people refering to the porn actors and directors)? Those people u see acting are abused because of their state of poverty...they want to make ends meet...noone likes being naked to the whole world...its like prostitution. If u have toked to a prostitute before u will know its not that they love sleeping around but its poverty-driven. Poverty is the devils tool to lead people into sin.YOU BY BUYING PORNOGRAPHIC VIDEOS OR DOWNLOADING FROM THE NET U WILL BE SUPPORTING THE ABUSE OF SUCH PEOPLE BECAUSE U ARE KEEPING THE DEVIL IN BUSINESS.

2) Those people u see acting are NOT MARRIED ope u know hence are commiting adultery and/or fornication WHICH IS WRONG!

My brothers and sisters, ask yourself, IS GOD BEHIND PORNOGRAPHY OR IS HE THE CREATOR OF SUCH????? NO NO NO! If its not of God its of the devil, there is no in between.

To conclude, it is wrong, it is wrong, it is wrong....u got better things to do then to waste ur time watching such.

Thank you

 

halleluyah, flesh and blood did not reveal this to you............wisdom.

 

Pornography is wrong!! whether it is done by a married couple or not!! PERIOD!

If a woman is aroused by porn then why is she married? This is very disturbing.

When she has sex will she think of her husband or the people she has just seen!

I AM JUST SAYING!!!

 

emphatically NO!

 

This is amazing...I am learning a lot...keep up the good work of evangelism...Pornography is real...Please lets fight this evil spirit...All your comments are good...may you also give practical advice to victims of this attack so that they could be delievered....Lets keep talking abt these things in church coz many times we decide not to talk abt these issues yet they r the very things distroying many christians world over..In our cell groups..lets talk abt it...in our youth meetings lets talk abt it...Pastors come clear on these matters too lest your people perish...I feel we still have more to do

 

wrong wrong wrong

 

Beloved, Its not enough to know that something is bad, because u have the Holy Spirit, ur conscience will always convict u of wrong doing. The question now is... HOW CAN SOMEONE WHO INDULGES, STOP IT?

Herein i give my advice... The only way to kill a thing (human, plant, habit, plans, ideas) is to stop feeding it!

Avoid those movies, novels, magazines or scenarios that cause u to do it. Give urself no excuse to indulge, rather feed ur spirit with God's word as a substitute. When u consciously stop feeding ur appetite (with the help of the Holy spirit), u'll be amazed at the transformation that will take place in a short while. Much love. God Bless u.

 

Whether Pornography is right for christians? NO...fine and settled, so I wouldn't want to dwell so much on that.

But for Saints that have found themselves in this dishonouring act/habit, I will like you to listen.

I once knew a child of God (whether in the spirit or physical, I cant tell) who was a victim of this wrong habit. An act that is only commited in secret because of shame of what it portrays is not worth it. Pornography is like calling out for the devil "Devil, please here is my heart's password, you can login anytime you want" or better still "here is this strong cane,please tactically use it on me" (And I tell you he can do a very good work @dat)

Pornography belittles your Christ consciousness.At first,you would be felling guilty.But if the habit is continued self-deceit crawls in where you begin to tell yourself that it doesnt matter that you are a spirit being!

Please,guide to stopping this is

1. Recognize and tag it as a Sin and treat it with all seriousness (God tells us to flee from all appearances of evil)

2. Humbly and sincerely take it to God in prayer asking for his strength(For we dont wrestle against flesh and blood)

3. Begin to discipline yourself whenever you are watching the media alone. Always ask yourself "If my Pastor were with me now,will I still watch this?"(But Jesus said that lo,He's with us always)

Purity and a perfect heart are gateways to convenant blessings...Pornography litters the soul.

Shine!

 

It is an honour to see how such a young man like yourself think. this is wonderful. may God use you to speak to many young people all over the world. you will surely be a blessing to the youths.

 

Continue shining!

 

to start with, i'm impressed about the topic. these are the lusts of the flesh that shud be subdued in due time. such things eats u up gradually and makes you crave for the wrong things which shudn't be.

 

     What are you saying? Well, just because you don't have an opinion on it does not make that of others wrong or "in-objective". Our opinions are not as important as what does the WORD say or teach about it and its morality! Although there is no verse of scripture that outrightly forbids pornography, yet there are certain things in the WORD of God that gives us insight into the mind of God concerning Pornography.

     First, What is the Gospel of Pornography? Pornography preaches "sex with anyone, anywhere, anyhow and anytime". Now, What does the Bible teach about such attitude? "Let marriage be kept honorable in every way, and the marriage bed undefiled. For God will judge those who commit sexual sins, especially those who commit adultery." (Heb. 13:4, ISV).  Pornography is the manifestation of the animalistic nature of fallen human race! Pornography is a deception from the pit of hell meant to deceive and corrupt innocent minds!

     Remember that you are the maker of what you become, and you can't be different from what you know. There is no such thing as "I can not be influenced" -  that's self-deceit. The WORD declares "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners." (1corinthians 15:33, KJV). So I will encourage you to study the WORD and find out God's thoughts on pornography and then develope and align your opinions with God's thoughs as revealed in the WORD. Your comment shows that you think lightly of the matter and may not see anything wrong with it - that's dangerous.

 

Your absolutely right bro!

 

thank you guys for such an interesting topic.

its a big NO to pornography every Holy Spirit filled christian must agree with that.

But there other brothers and sisters who are still watching pornography, not bcoz they want/need to but bcoz its now in their blood stream and need help from other bretheren to overcome this problem( they are nepios).

There the question here is how do u overcome this habit?

 

First, there are certain questions that should be answered about Pornography before deciding on it. What is Pornography? Who are those perpetrating it? What is there purpose or Mission? What does Pornography teach or preach? What's GOD's opinion on it? What's the morality of Pornography? And many others... Answering these question will help you to know exactly what God expects from you.

 

Now, What is the Gospel of Pornography? Pornography preaches "sex with anyone, anywhere, anyhow and anytime". Now, What does the Bible teach about such an attitude? "Let marriage be kept honorable in every way, and the marriage bed undefiled. For God will judge those who commit sexual sins, especially those who commit adultery." (Heb. 13:4, ISV).  Pornography is the manifestation of the animalistic nature of fallen human race! Pornography is a deception from the pit of hell meant to deceive and corrupt innocent minds!

 

Remember that you are the maker of what you become, and you can't be different from what you know. There is no such thing as "I can not be influenced" -  that's self-deceit. The WORD declares "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners." (1corinthians 15:33, KJV).

 

This is a very serious topic that alot of people particularly the youths have problems dealing with.

but the solution to this problem is actually very simple.

 

DO U WANT TO SERVE GOD OR THE DEVIL?

 

so wrong it si called sexual imorality and the bible says we should flee from all apprances of evil .we must not fullfill the lust of the flesh ,for if u sow unto the flesh u will of the flesh reap corruption for the wages of sin is dealth but if u re it already all u hv to do is to daily renew ur mind with Gods word and begin to watch the things u read ,watch and listen to.and also change your friends for iron sharpeth iron.keep shining

 

dt's ryt

 

You are too much my siater!

 

It could never be right or even compromised. It is sin and end of story. we ought to be Word-minded.
