  • Media Misuse Watching Pornography * Addicted to social networks * Wasting a lot of time with gadgets.
  • Is Pornography a sin? ● ● ● ● ● The three main categories of sin are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). Pornography definitely causes us to lust after flesh, and it is undeniably a lust of the eyes. Pornography definitely does not qualify as one of the things we are to think about, according to Philippians 4:8. Pornography is addictive (1 Corinthians 6:12; 2 Peter 2:19) Pornography is destructive (Proverbs 6:25-28; Ezekiel 20:30; Ephesians 4:19). Lusting after other people in our minds, which is the essence of pornography, is offensive to God (Matthew 5:28).
  • Why porn is so compelling? The thirsts we have when unfulfilled takes us to pornography. Making a list of thirst of one’s soul helps one to understand what triggers one to pornography. Some of the thirsts may be : ● ● • Attention—I long for people to like me. I long for your embrace. • Affection—I long to be enjoyed. I long to be delighted in. I long for you to take pleasure in who I am. ● • Affirmation—I long to know I have what it takes. I long for your blessing. ● • Acceptance—I long to belong. I long to be desired. ● • Satisfaction—I long for fullness. I long for well-being. ● ● Significance—I long for impact. I long for meaning. I long to be powerful. • Security—I long to know I will be okay. Ref : Surfing for God, Michael John Cusick, Thomas Nelson publication
  • Lust is also the outcome of our disordered desires or failures or brokenness we encountered. Especially irritation, loneliness, reminiscence of the deception you encountered, failed love relationship, etc can lead you to pornography. Ref : Surfing for God, Michael John Cusick, Thomas Nelson publication
  • How to overcome Pornography Have exclusive fasting and prayer continuously to come out of this evil. ● ● ● ● ● Delete all porn material you have in any form (book, cd, search history, etc). Identify your triggers (some brokenness, unfulfilled desire or some affection) which lead you to pornography. Having identified your triggers try to find what other way can these needs be met. Identify some of the circumstances that lead you to pornography. One example may be seeing an attractive wall poster. Do not browse when you are alone or in your private room. Have limited data pack. Write the objectives and work to do with a time limit before sitting to browse. Do not delete search history. If needed install softwares that filters porn. K9 security is one good software to filter porn. You can also use accountability software covenant eyes. Both have powerful free versions as well. Ref : Surfing for God, Michael John Cusick, Thomas Nelson publication
  • Social networking ● Facebook induced stress? ● The I element in social Networking ● Is is necessary to share everything with the world? ● Is it really needed to be online 24 X 7

  • Tips for using media in general Garbage in = Garbage out Need to see through the eyes not with the eyes/ears. (Master’s Eyes) Phi.2:5 Renew mind through His word. Ps. 119:9,11, Ro. 12:23; Eph.5:26 4:23 Thinking process must be wholesome Philip.4:8 See, listen to materials which builds up maturing Christian. Ask this question= Would Jesus see/hear such programs or articles?
  • Relationship Problem
  • Relationship with opposite sex Divine Plan: Healthy relation of men and women may be so enriching that one can say that this is one of the most wonderful divine thoughts of God. Attraction is natural: Now, when your minds and hearts are awakened in attraction to the opposite sex, what does it signal? It means- it is now time to prepare for manhood and womanhood. Healthy relationship: (do it for the glory of God) You can sense the presence of God in everything you do, whether you eat or drink, whether you study, whether you talk with your friends, whether you go shopping, everything you do as a child of God, everything is precious for God. (think what Jesus will do in my place) Primary priority is study: The Bible says a man must leave and not a boy or an adolescent. It’s about a man. We must realize that apart from God, we are in a company of Satan in college. Ref: Relations in our Life by Mr. Varughese Thomas , Alld DTC Apr 2-5, 2010
  • Premarital sex, etc Pre Marital sex relationship. Clearly forbidden by God. Deut. 22:13-21; Deut. 22:28-29; Prov. 5:1523; Gen. 39:9; 1 Cor. 7:9; 2 Tim. 2:22; 1 Cor. 6:9; Matt.15:19 Live in relationship & homosexuality – against God ordained marriage Ref: Relations in our Life by Mr. Varughese Thomas , Alld DTC Apr 2-5, 2010

  • Victory in the area of Sex Through renewal of the mind by filling it with God's truths about sexuality. We need reprogramming! Rom. 12:2 Moral commitment : That means reserving sex for marriage only. Such a commitment can close the door to unwanted sexual temptations. When we don't interpret the presence of the opposite sex as a sexual opportunity, it frees us to relate to them without sexual overtones. Joseph won the victory while tempted because he saw it as sin against God (Gen. 39:9). Sex has its rightful place only in marriage according to God's design, and that too in the context of married love. People are persons to love, not sex objects to be used. Love is the primary assignment for us. And only in the fulfillment of married love is sex going to be satisfying and edifying. Yield to the Power of the Holy Spirit. He is the source of our power over sin. He produces self-control and the power to love. Love alone can conquer lust. Run from temptation 2Tim.2:22 Guard your mind Pr.4:23 (MIND = the sexual organ) Change your thinking process. Phili,4:8 Remember your body = temple of the Holy Spirit 1 Cor. 3:16,17; 6:19 Ref: Relations in our Life by Mr. Varughese Thomas , Alld DTC Apr 2-5, 2010
  • Tips for building up relationship ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Discuss about your struggle with the seniors (Talk to your Paul/ spiritual leader.) Avoid physical touch! Talk in open area to avoid temptation. Men! Do not play with the emotions of girls. Broader understanding of relationships Sets model on relationships. Forgives and seek forgiveness. Promotes healing in all kinds of relationships. Ref: Relations in our Life by Mr. Varughese Thomas , Alld DTC Apr 2-5, 2010

  • Dealing with Peer Pressure ● ● Develop a thinking ability – with thinking ability you don’t have to lean upon inexperienced peers for direction. At the same time, you are not to be over self-confident and ignore the opinions of others. (Pro. 14:16). He or She is willing to “listen to counsel and accept discipline” so as to “become wise” – Pro. 19:20. Don’t be surprised, though, if you are disliked or even ridiculed for using your thinking faculties. But really, who has more strength, those who give in to their passions and emotions or those who can say no to improper desires? (Pro. 16:32)
  • Escaping the snare ● ● ● Choose your friends carefully! (Pro. 13:20). Associate with those who have Christian values and standards. Be skilled and competent. This can help reduce peer pressure. Become skilled in what you do at school and at home. When you are good at what you do, you then do not have to depend on peer approval for good self image. Maintaining a proper relationship with God. This is the most important factor. A relationship with God can strengthen you to stand up to your peers. Through active studying of God’s Word, prayer and fellowship with Christians.
