If you are a regular viewer of pornography and claim to be a Christian, you are deceived. 68% of “professing” Christians and crazier yet 50% of “professing” pastors are regular viewers of pornography. And by pornography, I also mean using innocent things in a lustful way…pornography of the mind. “I take pleasure and i give none in return” – Paul Washer speaking of sexual immorality It’s idolatry and love of self. Neither of which those who practice them shall enter the kingdom of God. And you, idolator, are not the exception to that truth. If you believe that you are, you are grossly deluded, and it shows the reality of your unregnerate heart.~AGM†♥
“Men love to gratify their own lusts, more than to please God and do their duty. When every man is eager for what he can get, and anxious to keep what he has, this makes men dangerous to one another. When men do not fear God, they will not regard man.Men are unholy and without the fear of God, because unthankful for the mercies of God. We abuse God’s gifts, if we make them the food and fuel of our lusts.”- Puritan Matthew Henry
“But understand this, that in the last days there
will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self,
lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without
self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen
with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the
appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” (2
* Dear friends and family, the Bible warns us of the last days…a Godless Godliness!
Look around you, the newspapers, look at self then read the above verse
again slowly. It should bring you to anguish. Seek the Lord while He may
still be found and forgives you from your sins through the redemption
His Son Jesus Christ.

Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children; And
walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling smell.
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
For this you know, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience.
Be not you therefore partakers with them. – Ephesians 5:1-7
The word fornication is porneia, where we get the word pornography. It means any sort of sexual immorality, fornication, adultery, etc… and as we know Jesus said looking with lust is adultery. Please notice it says Don’t Be Deceived anyone who practices these things will not inherit the kingdom. Can’t be anymore clear. ANYONE.
If you do any of these things, habitually, never having had your heart changed by Christ, now hating the sin He died for, especially in yourself, you are making a mockery of grace. So don’t claim that you have his grace, you do not. By very virtue of the life you continue to live, even in secret (and there are NO secrets from God), you are not under the grace that you claim and yet spit upon each time you indulge your own rotting flesh, you are under God’s wrath. Weep and mourn, cry out to Him, beg His forgiveness, and turn from your wickedness, surrender and SUBMIT to Christ as LORD, and He will make a whole new creation out of you, with a new heart that longs for righteousness, is tender to sin (your own sin first), and seeks to love Him and honor Him, and who would never sneak around and do the kind of things that only those who are utterly depraved and unredeemed wallow in.†
God requires a knowledge accompanied by obedience. True knowledge not only improves a Christian’s sight—but improves his pace. It is a reproach to a Christian to live in a contradiction to his knowledge, to know he should be strict and holy—yet to live loosely. Not to obey—is the same as not to know: “the sons of Eli knew not the Lord” (1 Sam. 2:12). They could not but know, for they taught others the knowledge of the Lord; yet they are said not to know—because they did not obey. When knowledge and practice appear together, then they herald much happiness. – Thomas Watson.
