For nearly 8 years I've struggled with sexual sin and addiction, beginning when I discovered pornography at the age of 12, culminating several years ago in giving my virginity to my then-girlfriend and continuing until yesterday when I viewed pornography for the last time. As a man, I know that I'm guaranteed to continue struggling with my own sinfulness... but as a son of the risen God, I know I am no longer bound by my sinful nature. I'm a prideful, arrogant, judgmental, know-it-all, 20-year-old who spends more time worrying about his hair than any sane person should, but despite all that, my God LOVES and DIED for me! I can't begin to comprehend why, but He did. And it's because of that unbelievable love that I now know I'm not chained to my past sins! I've been free of pornography for 24 hours. In light of an 8 year battle, it doesn't seem like much... but Christ is far stronger than any addiction!
