The Big Question

I want to congratulate anyone who has taken the most courageous, difficult step in the battle against pornography addiction - stepping out of denial into hope, healing, and freedom in Christ – at Remedy we call it Survival! 

Michael Leahy writes in his book, “Porn Nation,” I believe every addict will come face to face with at least one defining moment in his or her life, one opportunity to choose whether get well or stay sick.  The circumstances may vary and the situations will all look different, but the question will always be the same.  Do you want to be well?

The first person to ask that question was Jesus as recorded in the gospel of John chapter five verses one to five.  The next step in your journey is to honestly answer that question.

“Do you want to be well?” 

Here's something to think about while you consider your answer:  twenty-six times the word porneia is used in the New Testament.  Porneia is translated as “fornication” or “sexual immorality.”  It is consistently used to describe sin!  It is the root word for the English word pornography.  Frankly, pornography is nothing more than hard core sin!
