Be Set Free


In the beginning when God created Adam and Eve, the bible says they were naked and unashamed. (Genesis 2:25) What God created was pure. The human body the way He created it is a thing of beauty. In the marriage of one man and one women when God is first in their lives, their bed is undefiled and the union is holy. Sex within the confines of marriage is a wonderful thing. But through the fall and the entrance of sin and perversion entered into this world. What God meant to be holy and beautiful, satan has perverted.

Everywhere you look today sex is openly displayed. It’s found in movies, on television, on the radio, the internet, at the newsstands, billboards, storefront windows, and even in the way men and women dress. You can’t avoid it and it’s getting worse all the time.

One of the major addictions today that is not talked about openly is pornography. It is a problem that many men and some women, including Christians, have today. They keep it hidden, hoping that no one will find out what they are really like. They have a love hate relationship with it.

I have been there. For many years I had an addiction to it. I craved it and yet hated it. It would keep me from getting close to God the way I longed to. You become introverted and look at women not as a companion but as an object. It destroys intimacy and brings harm to your family and friends. There is always the fear of being discovered. There is a lot of self condemnation involved and you wind up hating yourself and the things you have been looking at.

All sin separates you from God because He is holy. If you don’t deal with this thing I can promise you He will expose it one day. Why? Because He loves you and if it is not dealt with it will destroy you and cause much hardship for those you love and love you.

How do you beat this thing? First of all tell someone you can confide in. Someone in whom you know their walk with God is secure. Second, make yourself accountable to that person. Establish a line of communication with them. If you are feeling tempted call them and pray with them. Third, confess your sin to God. Realize that he loves you and will never turn you away no matter how many times you have fallen. Just get right back up again. If He tells us that we are to forgive others seven times seventy times a day, how much more does He forgive you when you go to Him. Romans 8:1-2 says "There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and death." Forth, read the Word as often as you can. Memorize scriptures. Let your mind be renewed. There is hope and you don’t have to live in fear of the way you are. If you are willing, God will change your heart.

    I believe in forgiveness, it is completely a healing process for me. I have had to forgive many people who have hurt me as an adult and as a child adn by doing this, I have sometimes been given an understanding of what motivated some of these people. Once again I thank you for your kind words..and I do agree with you that praise and worship is amazing..I have been brought to tears many times.

  8. Wow Garry this a truly amazing entry- so wise and you have such amazing integrity! I am so happy to have discovered some other Christian spaces- I thought I was the only one! Let\’s keep living for God\’s glory- in everything we do may his will be done! Let us always build each other up, and all the more as we see the day approaching!Lawson

  9. I am an occasional viewer of your site. This posting seemed to speak to me, because I myself have this problem. I will take to heart what you have said, and go with the ways of God. May He bless you and your services.

  10. why do you make people in believing in god some people dont want to like me i\’ll a great person but i dont believe god so does that mean im going to hell and im going to have bad things happen to me so i think its up to people to believe god if they want

  11. Not believing in Hell doesn\’t mean it deosn\’t exist. It does. It is a very real place. God doesn\’t want for you to go there. He loves you but your sin seperates you from Him. The only way to be saved is through Jesus.
