Honey, I guess I’m kinda disappointed Satan made you visit bull dykes and dildoes again, but only six times this month, so praise the Lord! I really do like so feel privileged that you gifted me with these five-hundred page bulletins every week. See, with God and the software, you can be strong!
Yours in Jesus,
(P.S., hon, for an additional fee, could they make the fonts bigger? I'm getting eye strain. )
‘When I was young, the first time I read the temptation story in Matthew’s Gospel, one clear impression stood out in my mind: this is a showdown; it is like an epic battle of good vs. evil. As I read, it was like watching a gripping movie…’
‘I remember when I was buried deep in porn addiction: it seemed each day was a fight to avoid the inevitable. At the time I didn’t understand why my body would seem to take control. There were so many nights I would walk zombie-like to Internet porn or phone sex in search of my fix.’
“. . . I didn’t recognize I had an addiction until I had surgery and masturbation wasn’t an option for fifteen days. On day three, I was literally shaking, and I began to connect the dots. Other symptoms: irritability, inability to focus (’staring at walls syndrome’), mood swings, headaches (sometimes quite strong), sense of pressure in my genitals, flashbacks, paranoia, self-defeating thinking, depression, hopelessness, and fear that I will never have sex because I’ve learned no social skills since diving into porn eight years ago as a teen.”As may easily be concluded from this, indulgence in pornography may lead to outbursts of extreme Drama Queenery, even among the straight. (By the way, Covenant Eyes, staring at walls is not a syndrome, even if you stare at more than one wall.)
The image of sexual desire as a gluttonous beast that will attack unless kept shackled, blinkered and starved is a common one among Christers. The site http://boysunderattack.com/reaching.html ('Reaching for Teenage Boys' - the site owner sounds quite an innocent) aims to reassure adolescent lads on all manner of problems they might encounter when growing up. Bodily changes are dealt with matter-of-factly, but the author sends out such mixed messages on the topic of masturbation that any kid reading this stuff is likely to be seriously confused or, better and more likely, to simply junk the site.
‘It is a balancing act for every male: Every teenage boy has fantasies and lusts and will explore the connection between these, their sexual nature and masturbation…The more frequently you masturbate, the more fantasy you require to get an orgasm each time. [Sez who? You're making this stuff up!] This option becomes a vicious circle - the more you feed your lust, the more it demands to be fed! Ideally, you should aim to delay masturbation until the hormonal pressure builds inside you, then, very little, or ideally, no fantasy at all is required to produce ejaculation!’
Being an Evangelical Christian must be rather like spending a lifetime holding your breath. Here is one Tim Challies, author of Sexual Detox, a title that immediately gives you some idea of Tim's view of sex.
