The Yamuna River in India is one of the most polluted rivers in the world. It’s full of trash, dead animals, toxic waste and raw sewage. It has a horrible smell, yet many people bathe in it every year to “purify” themselves. Would you swim in that slimy water? No! Yet pornography is like a river of filth. Every time you look at porn you are swimming in a slimy swamp full of used condoms, bacteria, viruses, illegal drugs and even the blood of abortions. It’s gross!
Remember this when you are tempted to look at pornography. Guard your sexual purity and learn to hate the sins of the flesh. Proverbs 8:13 says: “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil.” And Jude 23 warns us to hate “even the garment polluted by the flesh.” Romans 12: 9 says we should “abhor what is evil.” How can you resist the temptation to look at porn? Ask God to give you a hatred for the lust that has controlled you.
