First I would like to thank you for being brave enough to read this. It was not easy to write. As a Disciple of Christ, the most dangerous prayer to offer is:
" LORD please use me"
next to this, repentance is easy especially if you know His love and mercy.
Back in 1000 bc(aprox.), when human sacrifice was required by the pagan priests (for extra mojo to empower their false gods. They would kill humans, such as enemies*, slaves, prisoners, well you get the idea.
This was the meat sacrificed to idols the fear was human flesh could be eaten.
Today we have forgotten the context due to less than perfect historical records.
Back In the day the big "C" was not cancer, it was cannibalism.
Cannibalism is a intricate element of human history, it is a moral stopsign in the historical timeline of a complete failure of humanity to control itself or to disperse uncorrupted justice.
(men did what ever was right in their own eyes).
Wars, civil unrest, riots, civil war, revolution, pestilence, famine, catastrophic calamities any or all could trigger a outbreak of cannibalism.
Females were preferred over males for off topic reasons.
When man gets hungry, or starving, that level of desperation, he has no problem eating his fellow man or woman.
That brings us to elemental politics,
“we live they died"
(Non vivet non morietur) I do not speak Latin I had to look it up. I put it in wondering if it was on a coat of arms somewhere with it?
So where are we today?
Our society has been infiltrated, some say attacked, divisions, tribalism have been amplified, bad actors are not only attacking the fabric of our society, they are attacking the threads, TRUTH itself, education, subversion of government, dehumanizing political opponents to the point of political murder.
Fellowships have been divided to the point of schisms.
All the time a spiritual corrosive was being distributed throughout our society, LONG before the net, Playboy, Hustler, and worse were being sold opening on newsstands.
It filtered to every age group, all social levels, all politics, and religion. Now the internet is well on its way the "stockmarket" went from 1600 to over 20,000.
All this with a MASSIVE UNREGULATED, UNTAXED PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY, aggressively, increase users of all ages, sexes, and appetites.
VERY aggressively identical to the tobacco industry paying lobbyists, attorneys and public relations experts to " church up their image". They call it free speech, but similar to yelling fire in a crowded theater. Can be Deadly.
Big pornography operators know that pornography is addictive, sexual addiction is a problem and it makes them billions of dollars every year (Porn is a global, estimated $97 billion industry, with about $12 billion of that coming from the U.S.). It is called the new drug.
Most of these companies are huge Wall Street cash cows.
We have allowed pornography to rule the day.
what is pornography?
# A consumption of human flesh spiritually speaking
# A LIE a enemy of TRUTH
# A deception, a friend of confusion.
# A false reality that allows one to enter a fantasy and gratify themselves sexually.
# A FAKE RELATIONSHIP WITH ONESELF.
The price of these fantasies
1) ¿The cost? to the victims...
It has been called a spiritual NUCLEAR BOMB to the faith community. Alcohol No one is safe or immune.
Jew, Christian, and even Muslims have been devastated.
2) Fellowship leaders destroyed, church closed
3) Families destroyed, unwed mothers, divorce, abuse.
4) Woman reduced to images or objects of gratification
5) Careers destroyed
6) Fortunes lost
7) Lives shortened wages of sin is death.
8) Humanity corrupted, substance abuse. etc.
9) Life devalued , abortion, homelessness
10) Spiritual life destroyed, atheistic, etc.
11) Selfishness the greed of wall street.
12) Exploitation excepted, corporate domination another false god
12 points of destruction,
12 is an interesting number for a lot of reasons without going into numerology or any of that, think of that 12 months of the year, the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 disciples of Christ.
These 12 points should be enough to get a pastor a church leader a Imam, a rabbis or a priest.
We must pray and meditate on this and start a counter attack because there are many types of pornography and they are destroying us.
Ezekiel 5:7-11 2 Timothy 3:1-5
Leviticus 26:27-30 2 Kings 6:26-29
Lamentations 2:16-21 Acts 15:29
I submit the entire pornography industry could be a DEEP STATE ASSET.
Psychological warfare at its best, easy, even desired, once digested becomes a habit, once it becomes a habit, it becomes an addiction.
Once it becomes an addiction, a soul is lost, a family destroyed, a career ruined, a fellowship corrupted.
Grace and mercy are offered but remember
"Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins: Let them not rule over me:" The sin you know you’re going to commit IS the presumptuous sin, you are presuming on God’s grace!
God help us all if we do not deal with this decisively.
Repent, Repent, Repent! do not give up, get in a support group, outreach, Iron sharpens Iron.
I sincerely pray this is recieved in the spirit inwhich it is given. I hope and pray any of you that may be struggling with this sin, realize it is much bigger that just you. It is not a victimless crime, this amounts to a gateway to much much worse. Remember what Paul taught. Our battle is not with the physical world, but with the spiritual.
Remember it is Pronography not cannibalism that is destroying us today, the "spiritual consumption" of human flesh and the spiritual consequences...
In Christs Name amen.
