Please note the serious consequences of pornography. According to Jesus, it’s possible to end up in Hell over lust. The serious consequences of mental adultery are mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 5:28, 29:
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed ADULTERY with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into HELL.
Too many church people take the sin of lust far too lightly, whereas Jesus taught to tear out your eyes and throw them away rather than having your whole body be thrown into hell (Matt 5:29). This is not to say a glance at someone’s body is always adultery. Temptation only becomes sin when one yields to it. But when one longs for another, then he is indeed guilty of adultery.
Though this may sound extreme, it would be far better for the world if Playboy headquarters was demolished along with all the Playboy and similar magazines. They are not adult magazines, they are adultERY magazines! Only God knows how many millions of men have committed adultery in their hearts through the sin of lusting after women. This is also an indictment against being 95% naked at the beach or public swimming pool. Professing Christian women must dress modestly (1 Tim 2:9) lest they stumble another into committing mental adultery. A woman who dresses to make men lust after her is no better than a prostitute!
So how can you get the victory over lust? Hide God’s word in your heart and avoid certain people, places and things that lead you into temptation. You are battling for eternity and the stakes could not be higher.
