Men without heads, figuratively speaking, is a plague we are dealing with. I was one of them. I am trying to never be one again. On a positive note, we can fix this and get our heads back.
In the battle against pornography, it’s important that we not only feed our souls, but our minds. The fourth step I want to suggest is that educating yourself on the destructive nature of pornography will help convince you to break free from it. If you missed the other articles in my series, you can read them beginning here. Here’s what the Catechism has to say about it:
The second step I want to suggest is for you to become accountable.
It’s my hope that you are convicted of the destructive nature of pornography (if not, click here), and that if you have a habit of viewing it, these five short articles will motivate you to change, grow, and heal. To that end I would like to propose five helpful steps (one step per article). Well, I call them “steps,” but they don’t need to be taken in order—they’re simply five approaches to healing that are proven to work.
It has been said that the greatest enemy of the great, is the good.
Let’s be clear – I don’t hate Facebook and I’m not going to tell you to ban it, as some articles have suggested. I’ve been on Facebook ever since 2004 and have seen some really neat changes to it over the years. I didn’t know what to expect of Facebook in the beginning. I checked it once every two or three weeks. It’s amazing to me how it’s become a website most users in our generation visit multiple times per day. It’s really changed the way we share information and life with one another. I love feeling so connected with family and friends spread out across the world - truly a remarkable accomplishment! On the other side of the coin, I hate what I am seeing in my own life and in the lives of others as a result of Facebook…total loss of joy.
