Okay so as most of you know I have had a problem with lust since God knows when and pornography for quite a while also. I am nowhere near perfect and you can read my blog post titled, "When Folly Speaks People Listen" to grasp some sort of understanding around why a young man my age and with my sin would try to give advice to others. Recently I have been doing a lot better with my fight against pornography and lust, but to be brutally honest I have messed up still quite a number of times.

Just recently, though, I have been really encouraged and strengthened by no other than a iPhone Bible App. The Bible App is  labeled Encourage and can also be found by searching "Biblical Encouragement Pornography Addiction App." This app opens up and has a list of different emotions and a statement at the top of the app that tells you to tell God how you are feeling today. Once you choose the emotion closest to how you are feeling it gives you countless different Bible verses that are directly related to your emotion in order to help encourage you to continue on in your fight against pornography. On the same page as the verse the author of the app gives a small encouragement note himself to the reader to further the encouragement process even more!

Anyone who has an iPhone or iTouch or iPad and have been addicted to pornography or have just been recently tempted to indulge in pornographic material, I would encourage you to get this app! It's $0.99 and worth so much more in the eternal perspective! So be encouraged and know that by the grace and power of God there are ways out through Christ in order that you may fight your addiction. Do not feel as if you are alone. More than 50% of Americans alone indulge or have indulged in pornographic activity. The fight is on. Stay prayerful. Stay accountable. Stay kingdom-minded.

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. -1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    My name's Ben Carter. I'm 18 years old and I'm in a long distance relationship. I don't believe life should be lived without relationships, so this page is here to explain what I mean by that.
