I recently spoke at my home church about Transparent Ministries and how God is leading us. I have received many responses to this message. Today I received a hand written note from a person that I believe listens and hears from God very well.

She sent her message to support us in our ministry and desire to see individuals set free from the addiction of pornography. Her message was rich with insight. Here are some of the thoughts from her note:

Pornography – is trading Love, the genuine legitimate emotion for Lust, which is a counterfeit and synthetic emotion that can never be fully satisfied.

Love
Builds up
Encourages
Strengthens
Supports
Stabilizes
Fortifies
Nurtures
Lust
Consumes
Degrades
Robs
Undermines Integrity
Undermines Trust
Undermines Honor
Undermines Self Respect
Undermines Character
Usurps
Demoralizes

Pornography is like a cancer of the thought life. “As a man thinketh so is he.”

Her words are powerful and true. We need to show believers that pornography is part of a counterfeit love robbing us of the true love God planned for us. I would challenge each of us to review the columns above and see which column our relationships would fall under.

I am so thankful this person felt led to communicate the message God gave to them so we can see these powerful truths. I will be sharing more of her message in the future.
