 More women lured to pornography addiction


Researchers have long known that the Internet has contributed to pornography addiction by making it so easily accessible — no need to go out in a raincoat, pull a hat down over the face, and sneak furtively into the red-light district.

But that ease of access also has leveled the playing field between the sexes — men are known as the sexual risk-takers, after all — and psychologists and researchers have seen an increasing number of women becoming addicted to pornography on the Internet over the past 10 years. ...

 Re: More women lured to pornography addiction

My younger sister read a lot of "Christian" romance novels as a girl. This struck me as a type pornagraphy for women and it was not until I read this article that I got any confirmation of that.

Have any of the sisters here been set free from that? I have brought this up to her but she has denied it. I could use some insight for the next time the Lord opens the door to confront this.

 Re:

It is one of the last taboos in our culture, I believe, and I am grateful that one of our female leaders in church has had the courage to bring it up in a meeting. It turned out that indeed from a group of perhaps 14-16 women, almost half confessed to struggling with this. They were the youngest ones in the group, but we did not go into specifics, like asking about internet use. If you have specific questions, Jeremy, I may be able to answer them from my personal experience if I feel comfortable enough with it, and hopefully for the edification of other women before they make these mistakes.

 Re:

does she still read these novels? Does she see it as sin whatsoever?

Bro Jeremy,

About your sister (and to any man whose wife may read christian romance novels); confronting them (however you confront), probably won't do the trick. You will have to attack this in your private prayer closet and allow the Holy Spirit to start working on her and showing her where these books are wrong because it's not just the ever so soft porn that has to be addressed (imho).

I know in your man's heart, you just want to instruct her not to read this stuff and she should obey; God bless ya if that actually happens!!

"This kind cometh out only by fasting and by prayer!" Until the Lord convicts us, we can do things in secret and in our mind and still look lovingly obedient on the outside!

Pray faithfully and allow the Lord time to convict her and this will take patience and love on your part to wait on the Lord while she might continue to seemingly buy book after book!! But DO trust in the Lord to do what is best for her and I promise you that He will!

God bless you!

:) I know this advise to be true, my mom reads these kind of books sometimes, and then my dad would tell her to stop reading them didn't seem to help infact just pushed my mom further away. I talked to my mom about it and why she read them, she told me she just really likes reading so I gave her some good Christian books that are in story form and just great wholesome reading.

My dad being the Zealot that he is told her she needs to read Pilgrim's Progress, my mom tried and didn't understand it, so instead of misunderstanding the entire book she stopped reading the book because it didn't make sense to her. I told her I could sit down and explain to her, she seemed open to that. My mom has a good heart but is going through a desert right now spiritually because my dad's zeal has rubbed and pushed her there because his zeal like the Pharisees came off as critical and very harsh. She is coming around though and I hope that she enjoys the two books I let her borrow.

God Bless,
Matthew

 Re: More women lured to pornography addiction

Is it possible to go to Heaven and be addicted to pornography. If someone watches porn and then asks Jesus to forgive them and does this all of their life will they be allowed access into the Kingdom of Heaven.

 Re: Questione

If you really want to talk about this and seriously want an answer to that question, we could cover in ten minutes over the phone what would take hours of typing on a forum. I would avail myself to wrestle through this issue with you via the phone, I would 100% protect your anonymity, and believe me I am nothing but compassionate to your question.

However I will say that your problem is real, however your question is wrong. No one ever asked in scripture how much they could sin and still get to heaven. The only one who got close to asking such a question was floored by Christ's response, and left staggering.

You should be asking, How can Christ free me from a sin He hates so absolutely. A sin that separated Him from His Father, a sin that pierced his Spirit through and through deeper and more penetratingly than a rusty nail ever could have...

You can PM me if you are able to communicate via phone in the US. If not, I will be praying and interceding for you.

 Re:

I really appreciate your heartfelt responce Areadymind. We need more bretheren like yourself ready to help their betheren. Yet I do not have the issue I raised. I believe there are many who believe they can be hooked to pornography or adultery and still make it to Heaven as long as they keep asking Jesus to forgive them. I just wanted to see what was the concensus in this community as it relates to that question.
