Addiction to Pornography
At Christian Counseling Associates, we seek to help those caught in the cycle of pornography use and addiction.
Addiction to pornography can be one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. With point-and-click availability on the internet, many people have fallen into the habit of viewing pornography on a frequent basis. Christian Counseling Associates provides resources to help end pornography use and restore the person to victorious living. In Matthew 5:27 – 28, Jesus says, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” 1 Corinthians 6:18 tells us, “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.”
Pornography is sexually explicit material that dehumanizes, objectifies, and degrades men and women for the purpose of sexual arousal. Usually, it is photos or videos; sometimes it takes the form of stories or comic book drawings.

Although pornography can seem like “sex without consequences,” the impact on a person’s relationships and their spiritual well-being is severe. Eventually, pornography use will end in guilt, shame, and brokenness. At Christian Counseling Associates, we seek to help those caught in the cycle of pornography use and addiction.
