What is Porn Addiction?

What is Porn Addiction?

There is some difference of opinion on what addiction is, including pornography addiction. The determining factor is often whether you are the primary figure in the addiction or if it is someone else under consideration.

It is a whole lot easier to diagnose addiction in others than in ourselves. Anything that controls us is unhealthy. When we find ourselves not wanting to do what we end up doing, we are not in control of ourselves or our circumstances. Even the Holy Ghost does not control us as much as guide us. We decide when and if to follow.

With addiction, we, in part, lose the ability to decide, so the addiction chooses for us. When this happens, addiction is controlling us.

The church is no stranger to helping those who are addicted. Many churches have support groups for substance abuse recovery etc., for a good reason. Although some churches have sexual addiction recovery groups, the number of them is significantly fewer.

We need moral purity groups to reach the church, not just the community.

Some questions to ask in regards to porn addiction:

  • How long have you been looking at porn?
  • How many times have you quit?
  • Is your porn usage hurting anybody? (you qualify as ‘anybody’)
Porn Addiction Levels

Many apostolics access porn to the level of their addiction. It may be once a week, while for others, it may be once every 3-4 months. We must look at both of these as a level of addiction. Neither is healthy. Both are destructive.

Apostolic Moral Purity (apostolicmoralpurity.com), a DayStar Ministries ministry, focuses on helping apostolics find victory over pornography and sexual impurity. Go to the website to find out how to access live events in November, December, and beyond.

If you wish to help those currently addicted or you are presently accessing porn yourself, AMP is a safe place to find help. Please join us in these upcoming live events. You may access these events anonymously.

We want to help.  You may rest assured that confidentiality is a primary concern. You are not alone!
