Steps to a Porn-Free Life

Tim Chester wrote a book called "Closing the Window: Steps to Living Porn Free."  You can get it in our bookstore or on any book website like Amazon.com (click here to see it at Amazon.com).

In the book he says there are five keys to win the battle with porn:

  1. You must have a hatred of porn. You must hate what it is, what it means, what it does, and long for change.
  2. You must adore God. You must believe that God gives satisfaction in life so much more than porn or anything else.
  3. You must embrace the Gospel. You must believe that Christ died to free you from an addiction to porn and yet you must also believe that you are right with God through Christ not through making good choices with porn.
  4. You must avoid temptation. You must be committed to do all you can to avoid temptation, starting with the controls on your computer. I have a friend who has struggled with porn and no longer has a computer or a TV in his house. The temptation was too great for him. I wonder if he misses those technologies.
  5. You must be accountable to others. You need a community of Christians who are holding you accountable, supporting you in your struggle, and pointing you to the Gospel continuously.

The book doesn't take an approach saying that this is easy. It's not easy. Living in a fallen world is messy and hard. But it is a battle men and women must engage in for our good and God's glory.
