Why Are So Many Men Hooked on Internet Porn & Video Games?

This was a great post by Russell Moore that I got via Brandon Cox (http://twitter.com/brandonacox) and one that I recommend everyone to read.

I valued greatly how Russel highlighted the spiritual aspect of both love and war, reminding us that God is indeed the creator of both, but for a specific purpose.

The sadness of the reality of what he has written, is that women will remain devoid of that which God has placed in them (Your desire will be for your husband ~ see Genesis 3:16b) as men will simply not be “present” to fulfil this role, themselves being devoid of the the responsibility that God has placed in them (he [women’s husband] will rule over you ~ also Genesis 3:16b).

Men will furthermore pat themselves on the back and feel a sense of accomplishment in defeating the “enemy” depicted in the video game, instead of getting out into the real world and making a real difference and defeating the real enemy’s plans and schemes (poverty, injustice, etc.).

Guard yourselves, your children, your flock, and your friends.

  1. Darryl, thanks, great post and article. However, how does one comment on Mr. Moore’s post, as it asks for authorized users only?

    I agree with one comment there and copy it here.

    Share solutions.
    (Yes, the topic is taboo, so thank-you for talking about it)

    The solution is in Christ, but often men hear yet again how ‘bad’ they are, and what they must do, do, do, do to stop.

    Here is one solution which has worked for us: fill your ears with Good News, of the extreme kind, such as Joseph Prince: Set free from sin through Grace, or Condemnation Kills, but the Spirit gives life. We listened to these teachings over and over and over, and found faith rising in our hearts, to actually come to a place of believing that Christ died for our addictions, that we could come as we are, He does not condemn, and He loves the porn addict. When we discover His love for us in our sin, (not first repent, then He will love…but let Him love me, even though I am full of sin…you can take my word for it, the desire disappears when you start believing the Good News. Christ centred news…Christ made all the difference by His death on the cross, porn does not take Him by surprise!!!
