Purity Download: Tip 2

The following is excerpted from Sex is Not the Problem (Lust Is) and is the second of a seven part series on resisting internet porn.

2. Resolve that no technological convenience
is worth sinning against God.

Most people have to use the Internet for school or work. But we should never place the convenience of technology above God’s commands for holiness. If you’ve struggled with Internet porn or impurity of any kind, be willing to take radical action. Maybe that means no Internet access at your home for a season (that's the step my friend Don has taken). Or staying away from chat rooms or specific kinds of surfing, period. It could mean going on-line only when you’re with other people. For a season while my teenage brothers were younger, my dad had only one computer in his house with a web browser, and that computer was in the middle of the living room. But that’s not all…my mom was the only one with the password to get onto it! Inconvenient? Incredibly so! But during that time he was more concerned with protecting himself and my younger brothers than with convenience.

Please feel free to share steps you've taken to limit temptation online. What safeguards do you have in place to weaken the power of lust on the Internet?

Stay tuned for Tip 3...
