Challenging pornography with purity


In today’s world, online pornography and other venues offer easy ways to indulge in sensuality and sexuality. The result is that many people struggle with the pull of sensuality. For those who wish to be free of that pull, there is an answer. It is the reality that you are actually spiritual, and much loved by God.  

Even if you feel very far away from that concept of yourself right now, the Christ—the message of God’s love that Jesus brought to humanity—is with you, and will show you who you really are. Instead of a mortal being driven by sensual cravings, you are pure and good, and through the power divine Love gives to all of us, you will be able to see this and to live this way.

In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus described various states of blessedness, one of which is, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). Such purity is a practical path to healthy relationships and peace of heart.
