The Lies Of Pornography: Truth Can Transform

Crossroads: Choosing the Road to Sexual Purity

Living Free Every Day®

Today's Scripture
"Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you." Psalm 86:11 NLT

Thoughts for Today
The lies of pornography are subtle and entice many people to live a degraded lifestyle. To combat lies, everything must be compared to the truth of God's Word. Truth is objective. Jesus is the truth. The Bible is the truth. If the lies of pornography have ensnared you, the objective aspect of truth is vital for your restoration. Let the truth of God's Word, rather than personal preferences, be your standard.

The world today would have us believe that there is no such thing as objective truth. Another lie. If there is no objective truth, then there are no such things as ethics and morals … each person can do whatever he or she wants. The result is chaos.

Consider this …
You can be set free from your addiction to pornography. Come to Jesus. Ask for his forgiveness and his help. And then start spending more time in the Bible. Find verses that relate to your need. Let the truth of the Bible renew your mind and transform your life. Only then will you know the truth … and the truth will set you free.

Prayer
Lord, teach me your ways so that I may live according to your truth. Grant me purity of heart so that I might honor you. In Jesus' name …

Today's Living Free News

  • 2013 Living Free Outcomes Results

    We are excited to announce the 2013 Living Free Outcomes Research Findings. Over the last three years, we have collected questionnaires from participants in several different ministries in many different states. This year we gathered the questionnaires from 5 different ministries who are reaching out to their communities through non-residential support group settings in 5 states. There were 181 people in 22 different groups represented.

    The data confirms the effectiveness of Living Free because of what God is doing through His Word, His Spirit and His people. The data reflects that no matter the location or facilitator, lives are being transformed and families restored by God through many local Living Free and Living Free Community ministries. We give God all the glory!

  • Testimony from Rwanda

    God does heal the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). Read the following testimony we received today regarding today's Living Free Every Day devotion provided by Living Free ministries.

    "Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Thank you so much for the message of forgiveness. Jesus Christ recommend us to forgive if we want to be forgiven. For us Rwandans, we are experiencing forgiveness and now we are free from the bondage of unforgiveness. When you forgive, even physically, you are released. I am telling you this because I have forgiven those who killed my parents and relatives. But, ask to be led by the Holy Spirit who will enable you to forgive those who sin against you."

    Blessings,

    Jean de Dieu

    Rwanda- Central Africa
