The Addiction of Pornography...

The Addiction Of Pornography...

A Christian brother had a confession.

Pornography in his life was an addiction .

I couldn't believe the words

I began to hear.

As a message of hopelessness from

his lips began to appear.

I began to see tears running down his cheek.

I go to counseling once a week.”


This was a “man of God” as many believed.

True joy and fulfillment were no longer achieved.

As the lust in his heart began to burn.

Jesus-his once true love-he longed to return.

In the coming days and weeks ahead.

So many ungodly thoughts entered his head.

He began to lose his family and all he cherished.

His life before him began to perish

Then one night in deep agony,

to God, he cried out;

Is this what life is really all about?”


Dear Jesus...in repentance I come to you.”

I have sinned against God and my family too.”


He forsook the things he thought gave him pleasure.

And lived according to God's word

his true treasure.

Run from every evil temptation

& lust of the flesh.

Or your life will end up in a huge mess!

Pornography in your life will destroy and decay.

From it's appearance—you must run away!

Enjoy Godly relationships as

Christ meant them to be.

Walk anew in God's love—Only HE

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
