Paint It Red

« on: October 06, 2011, 10:38:37 PM »

I've been about a year or so since the end of my porn addiction. Upon starting my inquiry into Orthodoxy, it has helped me alot in overcoming this terrible addiction, but keeping my thoughts on Christ, trying to follow the Gospel, and your prayers has eliminated it out of my life. There was a day when I thought I wanted to look at porn, did, and felt nothing/had any urges when viewing it. After that haven't looked at such since. A great relief has been lifted.

Glory to God! Thank you all for the prayers, if indirectly.

Glory to God!

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Glory be to God!

Keep fighting the Good Fight, my friend!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Yeah, that one's particularly difficult for us as men, and I applaud your courage and conviction.  I am once again humbled by the overwhelming compassion of the people on this board.

Glory to God!

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
