Presented by Kenny Luck, April 6, 2016
Kenny Luck, pastor and author, explained how similar to an oil spill, skimming the surface to clean up the mess is a reaction, not a solution. If we don’t get to the source, we don’t get to the reality of it. Porn users often consume it to escape reality, but God uses reality to conform us to the image of His Son. Like the boy born blind, Jesus says the boy’s blindness is not because of the boy’s sin or his parents’ sin, but rather a way to show the glory of God.
There’s a movement for young men to disengage from reality and binge on video games and porn. Luck challenges them to grow up and realize the person God made them to be.
- My reality is God’s glory, whether it’s good or uncomfortable.
- My reality is the way to my maturity.
- I must see my reality as a way to solidify my identity.
Question: It there much difference between a porn addiction and being addicted to something like video games, TV shows, etc.?
Answer: The problem with both is the person is focusing on themselves. Their behavior shuts other people out. You can’t have a successful relationship with anybody by focusing on yourself.
