Helps to Overcome Porn

“And it came to pass…  that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, ‘Lie with me’.  But he refused, and said…  ‘…how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?’  And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her…  And she caught him by his garment, saying, ‘Lie with me’: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.”

Gen. 39:7-12

“[Treat] the younger [ladies] as sisters, with all purity.”

1 Tim. 5:2

“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God…  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.”

1 Thess. 4:3-7

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.” Ps. 101:3

“But I say unto you that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.  And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”

Mt. 5:28-29

“But these [persons are] as natural brute beasts…  and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; and shall receive the reward of unrighteousness…  having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin…  they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”

2 Pet. 2:12-19

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Phil. 4:13
