Cuting off an arm, gouge out an eye

This is a blog post for the Seventh-day Adventist Christian struggling with pornography.

If you are not one, this blog post is not meant for you. Continue reading at your own discretion.


Let's cut the chase.Do you really want to get rid of pornography?

In my own prayers the only response was: 'How bad do you want freedom?"

Let me tell you one simple thing you can do. And it is guaranteed to work.

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

You read it many times. And you wondered many times what it means. You know what it means.

The one interpretation you did not want to hear is this:

Cut off your private internet connection. Throw away magazines. Cut out the cable TV. Throw out the TV.

I know it sounds like a lot of sacrifice. But it's worth it, and let me give you a little hope.

Do you know what happens when you cut off a branch from a tree?

Another branch pops up this time going in another direction. You will readjust. Go to the public library for your internet.

The entertainment you miss will come back.


Or else you will be:

Indeed, the adulterer is like unto a barren fig tree. Do you know what my grandmother
did when she saw our fig tree not bearing fruits, and winter approaching? She broke off branches.
Good branches. But those branches would be useless anyway, because when
winter comes they will all wither away and fall of. God might cut off good branches,
but he is pruning you to bear more fruit. What fruit?
The fruits of the spirit. Love, peace, patience, joy, an abundant life like that of Joseph.
If you think you are strong enough to resist the temptation, you will be like Samson, Salomon and David.
I lost three years fighting like that. It never works. Seduction works best when you play with it.
The only solution is not to play. Joseph survived by running for his life.
And for the closing paragraph, heed the words of Jesus:

And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.(Lk 6:31)

If those women were sisters in Christ, your family - sisters, daughters, granddaughters. What would you want people to do?

You would have them trash their whole computers so that they do not look at those disgraceful acts.

If you do not do this and do everything to avoid falling into this sin, God will measure unto you how you measured to others.

David for his one sin payed fourfold. Do you want to have your wife, girlfriend,

daughter, sister, granddaughter treated as you treat those women? It is your choice.

But do not think it is hopeless, thinking "It's all lost I might continue doing this anyway,

if these are my wages - misery worse thand David"s - my life will be worse than death."


No it won't, God pardoned kings that repented and they did not see those terrible consequences

in their lifetime. God cannot undo the consequences. But if you lead a life of mercy towards

others, it will also come back, and your children will not reap such consequences.

That's the good thing about it.



But first, cut off those offending arms and gouge out your offending eyes.

And be like the widow from the parable of the widow and the unrighteouss judge. Cry out to
the Lord to save you, and cut out that arm.
You will not regret it.
