This scenario is happening all across America.

There’s certain signals that sound off loud and clear that your husband, who happens to be a pastor, is watching porn. Your church is growing but there is something that isn’t right. Or your church is not growing and you can’t seem to put your finger on it.

In either case, church growth is not the goal of pastors. We plant, we water, God gives the increase.

But your marriage is suffering tremendous strain and you can’t seem to find a reason. Or you might know the reason but you refuse to address it to keep peace in the house.

Denial can be potentially deadly to a marriage.

Silence, to your husband, is considered permission. As long as he is not confronted, he has a false sense of security.

Are you a peacekeeper or a peacemaker?

As a wife, you are living right and you are maintaining your purity before God but lately, your husband has abandoned purity and holiness. His intensity to pray and to preach the Word has suffered, and you can tell the difference. The fire for God in his life is gone.

He “fakes” his way through each service. At the beginning of the ministry, he was all out and ready to do the work of the ministry. All of a sudden, it seems like water on wood. No fire.

Missing from his preaching are messages on holiness and purity. If he fails to preach against sin, there’s an excellent chance he is in Secret Sexual Sins.

What is happening?

89% of porn comes from the United States. In particular, Internet porn is the most widely used venue where anyone at any time can watch porn. No one watches porn and not act out sexually in masturbation, prostitutes, or a mistress.

A mistress is too late.

The root of the problem is found in porn and masturbation.

The secret sex life of any man is found in these two places.

As a wife, here are some signals that indicate a Secret Sexual Sins issue.

1. You’ve had no intimacy in more than a week.

He is home regularly. His hours hasn’t changed. The time that you go to bed hasn’t changed. There aren’t any known medical conditions. It’s time to ask the tough questions.

Is he seeking God? Is he fasting and did he ask for this time to be with God? If the answer is no, then……what’s up.

One of the things about porn is the “adrenaline of secrecy.”

Even though a man readily admits to watching women and watching porn, the power of not being caught and the ability to deceive the mind into thinking that he could get away with it is part of the fuel of adrenaline. That’s why Secret Sexual Sins is a very powerful revelation. It’s the secret world of sex in the mind of a powerful mand of Gawd that believes he could get away with it.

But with the Lord, no one gets away with it.

Psalm 139:11-12 says “If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.”

Psalm 90:8 says, You have set our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.”

Just like David, what David did in secret, God will lay it bare for all to see in the noonday sun.

However, you need to get to the bottom of it.

Perhaps God will spare the humiliation because of a lack of humility.

2. You caught his eyes “wondering.”

The one place where you will know where a man’s heart is is in his eyes.

Proverbs 27:20 says, “Hell and destruction is never full, so the eyes of a man are never satisfied.”

Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

If he is watching women in the street and in the church where he is preaching, there is a serious lust problem. Sometimes a man does it deliberately because he is making a statement. He wants to have what he saw sexually. This sin of sight adultery is a problem too. Sometimes women deliberately wear certain eye catching items, showing cleavage and legs, as well as body hugging dresses like they are going to the club. Some of them are emotionally unstable women that is looking to make a move.

They attend church and strategically sit in proximity to be seen. Many people will say that this is just another attack on women. Well, my question to you is, have you looked at what they wore to church? And have you ever asked them whether or not they are attracted to a married pastor? If you haven’t asked them that question, I strongly urge you to.

Men and women come to church for the wrong reason. And it is true that not every man or woman has sex on their minds but take a good look at the door and you will see that the hunt is on.

3. Your husband stays up to watch TV well past bedtime.

This is the one thing that you need to pay attention to because it’s a dead giveaway.

He may not be watching porn but he may be watching shows that preview substitute porn.

The agenda of the late shows has been pushing porn on network television. NYPD Blue and other shows showcased soft porn at 10PM to take things to the next level. Outright porn on national TV. The FCC ordered ABC to cease and we were sort of spared the indecency. But now with Internet porn, your husband has his personal devices and he doesn’t need network TV.

Discretely, he could watch all the porn he wants.

4. For some reason, he hates you.

The object of porn is to despise and dispose the wife. Porn has been responsible for the destruction of 57 percent of marriages.

Everything that you do is ridiculed, despised, and his utter contempt for you is expressed in arguments that are completely irrational, baseless, and reconcilable. He picks on everything you do. He doesn’t say much to appreciate you. He depreciates you because porn is perfect and in his mind, you are not. Porn is perfect sex, perfect faces, perfect proportioned bodies. In that arena, no wife has a chance.

The low self esteem is intended to destroy you. That’s the way the devil works in the minds of men. To help destroy you. Especially if you are a praying, Word woman. If he constantly lashes out at you but you see him be nice to other women, it is a dead giveaway.

5. You catch him masturbating in bed when he thought you were asleep.

This is common. He loves to think that he could get a little extracurricular sexual play with himself while he thinks that you are asleep, but you caught him. But you do not say anything, you just know that he is doing something that he shouldn’t be doing. You play like you were still asleep, but you know what’s up. You must understand that this behavior is lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life operating in him.

Jesus rose a great while before day to pray. I honestly believe that the Lord Jesus got up for a reason to pray. Men are tempted sexually late at night and early in the morning. A man is aroused the most during the set times. Because of his lack of discipline, he will engage in Secret Sexual Sins to relieve sexual tension. But why doesn’t he engage with his wife?

Lust.

How do you resolve these issues with a man that seemingly has the call of God on his life but treats you like trash?

Prayer and much prayer.

God knows how to get to his hardened heart. But you have to be patient. Most men will not admit that they have a sex sin problem. The one thing that he counts on is his ability to think that he can’t get caught. But the Lord caught him before time began and it is a matter of time before he is exposed. His deception is on thin ice. The exposure is not just to humiliate him but to help him. Because he believes that he wasn’t caught, he continues on like as if nothing is going to go wrong.

This is where sometimes, he gets caught.

Just be patient. God will not be mocked.

Surprisingly, 63 percent of those who participated in this survey were female,
and indicated that 20.4 percent of people masturbate at least three or more
times per day. Among the other key findings:

* 79.6% masturbate 0-2 times per day;  15.2% 3-5 times a day;  3.8% 6-10 times;
and only 1.4% masturbate more than 10 times a day.
  
* 48% believe that their masturbation frequency is below average; 45.4% said
frequency is average;  and  6% believe that their masturbation frequency is
above average.
  
* 45.4%  either agreed that masturbating can cause problems in their
relationships; while 29.3% neither agreed or disagreed and the rest of the
participants disagreed.
  
* 18.3% are either extremely or very ashamed of their masturbating habits; 23.8%
are either slightly or somewhat ashamed and the 57.8% are not ashamed at all.

These statistics came from “Reuters.com,” and the link to this site is provided below.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/06/morningside-recovery-idUSnPnNY55073+160+PRN20130206

It is clear that chronic masturbation is a serious problem in the Body of Christ. While these stats are not reflective of just professed believers, there is no doubt in my mind that this is a serious problem in believers today. There is no question about porn being a problem in the church among professed believers, however, the associated sexual activities are rarely discussed.

Pun not intended, porn and masturbation go “hand in hand.”

No one watches porn and doesn’t act out sexually.

As with most people, many men and women struggle with watching porn. Porn is accessible, available (free and PPV), and could be seen anonymously. Substitute porn, such as newspapers, the weather women, the early morning show of “club” dressing women,” movies and with soft porn, TV shows, and other venues where sex is readily seen can inflame lust in the hearts of people in an instant.

These trigger mechanisms are strategically designed to inflame the urges and impulses.

Listen to the Amplified Bible’s version of what Paul said in Colossians 3:5-7.

“So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members [those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin] :sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).

It is on account of these [very sins] that the [holy] anger of God is ever coming upon the sons of disobedience (those who are obstinately opposed to the divine will), among whom you also once walked, when you were living in and addicted to [such practices].

In looking at the statistics, these categories reveal how often a person masturbates in a 24 hour period.

If you note the last statistic, 57.8% are not ashamed at all of masturbation.

I know what that’s like.

The mind and the body made a very powerful statement to the human spirit.

It loves masturbation and we (mind and body) will do everything in its power to keep this going.

Have you ever thought about this?

The urges and impulses are so strong and dominating that the mind abandons any Word from God to be delivered. The mind also goes into a sense of hopelessness that it has subjected itself to accept the fact that this is the way that it’s going to be for the rest of your life on earth.

There are many men and women that deliberately made this declaration. At the same time, they also seek freedom. Regarding those in the 58.7 percentile, I could be wrong, but having been in this trap, it is clear that there might be a common form of abandonment denial that is evident in all man.

The pleasure is too strong to give up.

This is what helps the denial. The pleasure.

Sex was designed to be pleasurable. However, solo sex is more pleasurable because you make up the rules. You do not need another body. You can stop and start at anytime. Day or night. You do not have to wait for your wife to be sexually ready. You do not have to relate with another person. You do not have impregnate them. You do not open yourself to STDs.

Just before you think I am giving you the OK about masturbation, be very careful here.

This WAS the way I was thinking when I was in the cycle of sexual addiction level one.

When something has you in bondage, you are not free. Even if you are in the 79.6 percentile.

I built my whole day on watching women and filing their shape in my mind in complete violation of Matthew 5:27-30.

But all that was is just fuel for the engine of lust in my deceitfully, desperately wicked heart.

The cycle of satisfaction to climax is always the goal in masturbation. You see, you could do without the eye candy and go on muscle memory because masturbation is all about you. And you may disagree, but you are doing you and that is a form of homosexuality or lesbianism called solo sex. But this doesn’t deter anyone from masturbation. When the body seeks pleasure, reasoning yourself out of this past time is not an option.

Unless, you are serious about changing your ways.

The amount of masturbation is not really the pursuit. It’s the lust in a man’s heart that craves physical intimacy.

You see, it is always lust in the mind and flesh. All the other needs of man are secondary.

Affirmation……..secondary. Love……….secondary. For females……connection needs……..secondary.

Notice again what Paul said.

“…sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).”

Masturbation is about all of the above.

It is the idolizing of the genitals.

I know that this is graphic but that’s what it’s about. Even with homosexuality, it is about the idolizing and deifying of self.

One of the signs of the last days is that men would be “lovers of themselves.”

This is the deification of man. This deification of man is the worship of himself. The highest way that this is done is in sex. Particularly solo sex.

When you workout in the gym, there are mirrors. There are posters. In the supermarkets, there are sexually explicit magazines. Even innocent pictures give that hidden suggestion of sex. The words is just the story line but when you see what you want, your mind goes on the hunt to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Especially when you look at someone that you want sexually. You take that back to your bedroom or whatever room you do self solo sex and the rest is history.

What is the solution?

How do we deprive of power the evil desires lurking in our members?

The Bible gives us the sexual purity of Jesus.

He regularly went to the mountain to pray.

That’s lesson one.

Jesus got up and changed His venue.

He regularly applied the Word.

That’s lesson two.

In the temptation of Jesus, He regularly said, “It is written.”

Establishing personal holiness and discipline is not easy. Anyone that told you that this is easy is a liar. Jesus was tempted in all points like us, yet, He didn’t sin. That means He was tempted to masturbate and Jesus was tempted to be a homosexual. Hebrews 4 said, “All points.”

But the way that the Lord Jesus handled business with His flesh was by prayer and applying the Word of God.

Finally, notice that the Lord Jesus mentioned in Matthew 5:27-30 the eyes and hands. Pluck the right eye out and cut the right hand. There is no question in my mind that Jesus also meant masturbation because we use our eyes to seek out a sexual object and we use our hands to masturbate. Although there are ways to stimulate yourself without the use of hands, it is still a form of masturbation because you are not involved sexually with your wife.

But you have to begin doing something about disciplining your eyes and hands.

Get up from that place where fantasy, ritual, acting out takes place and find a place to pray and put your hand on the Bible. Open the Scriptures and begin to meditate on God. Everyone has a starting point. Start there and be consistent.

Victory was already achieved on the cross. Now it is time to follow Him, deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Him.

Some of you will remember the blog that I wrote regarding Kenneth Copeland and the Catholic pope uniting under the guise of Christian unity. Since that meeting, James Robison, Kenneth Copeland and other evangelicals met with the pope, along with Tony Palmer.

This is stunning news about the motorcycle death of Tony Palmer.

Some will declare that God derailed this ecumenical move of joining the catholics together with the charismatics.

I will say that it doesn’t derail it. I will say that this death is very significant. To read into something without full knowledge of the intent is dangerous. Joining with catholicism is dangerous. Joining with almost any group that has questionable material is dangerous. Walking in deliberate error is dangerous. Walking in the truth and speaking the truth in love is safe.

It is important to remain focused on one thing and one thing only.

“…be even more diligent to make your call and election sure.” 2 Peter 1:10

Tony Palmer was not a catholic but an anglican bishop but something pulled on him to establish christian unity. Unfortunately, he turned towards the pope and the rest is history. For centuries, the system of catholicism has robbed many good people from walking in the true grace of God. As Paul said, “For by grace you are saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.”

Catholicism demands works for salvation, preaches purgatory, baptizes infants into the Christian faith by sprinkling, prays to statues, honors Mary the mother of Jesus as the Queen of heaven and mediator to God the Father, and a host of many other questionable, and blatant errors of Scripture. The works of Martin Luther, William Tyndale, and John Wycliffe, and others sounded the alarm to stand against the error embedded in Catholicism to deceive the people into believing that they must worship the church.

While the catholics will deny some or all of this, all you need to do is look closely over the centuries to see the differences between catholicism and protestantism. Ask yourselves about what these differences are and conclude that the differences are unmistakable and undeniable.

Nonetheless, Tony Palmer’s death is a blow to Kenneth Copeland and other ecumenical evangelicals.

The question should definitely be asked “Will this hinder the intent of “unity?”

In my view, there is no question that his death will spurn them on to complete the work.

Given the information about the history of catholicism and protestantism, I wouldn’t dare to continue to move away from the hope of the gospel just because we want a little unity with allegiance to questionable and blatant error. The conflict of truth and error is a real game because it has eternal implications. If man chooses the wrong over the right, it will cost him. To choose error over truth demands a complete suppression of the truth.

Tony Palmer’s death is significant. We pray for his family.

We must not enter into hyper emotionalism. Meaning that we dare not declare that a person is in heaven just because people die a tragic death.

Repentance and faith in Christ alone is the only way to get into the heavenly kingdom of the Son of His love.

Faith in any other institution is a sure ticket to eternal condemnation.

Let’s pay attention to walking in the truth of God’s Word and seek to be on the same page with God and the rightly divided Word of truth. The Holy Spirit knows how to unify the Body of Christ with people of “Like precious faith.”

But the Holy Spirit of truth will not unify the Body apart from the truth in the Word of God.

highquality_pictures_of_the_wheat_fields_under_the_sun_166066This is real bold preaching from Pastor John MacArthur.

Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch.com posted TheBlaze.com blog regarding Pastor MacArthur’s statement on FB.

Well, Scripture backs him up 100%.

First, listen to what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 13:24-30 in the Parable of the Wheat and Tares.

“Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares? ’He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’

The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’”

Why would the Lord permit this?

The reason is clear.

The seed of the Wheat is white and the seed of Tares is black.

If you want the real thing, people know where to go.

When it comes to the sin of homosexuality, the Lord minces no words in Leviticus 18:22 and showed His displeasure in Genesis chapters 18 and 19.

God did not change His mind because of what the Lord God said in Numbers 23:19, Psalm 119:89, Malachi 3:6, James 1:17 and Hebrews 6:16-18.

Jesus clarifies His statement when He explained it to His disciples in Matthew 13:36-43.

“Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. ”He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.

The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.

There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

One of the things that you gotta love about the Lord is that if you ask Him a question, He will give you the answer.

And that’s been the point all along.

Jesus sowed good seed.

The field is the world.

satan sowed bad seed.

The good seeds are the sons of the kingdom.

The bad seeds (tares) are the sons of the wicked one (the devil).

The enemy who sowed the bad seeds is the devil.

The harvest is the end of the age.

The good seeds go into the barn as good harvest.

The bad seeds get burned in hell forever.

To be a good seed, how does one become one?

Jesus said “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Repent means to “change your mind or reconsider.”

When you do, the Lord will forgive you. After you are forgiven, the Holy Spirit comes in you and makes you a new creature in Christ.

Now for you homosexual affirming pastors and churches, as long as you “love” them and never demand they repent, you are a church of satan. You are tares planted by the wicked one.

As one preacher said, “If the shoe doesn’t fit, squeeze into it.”

You know who you are. If you are an enemy of God, James 4:4 says, “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”

So if you are obstinately opposed to the will of God, then expect to be burned.

Oh, btw, it is at the last minute that tares are distinguishable because as wheat and tares grow together, you can’t tell the difference until the end. You see, if you have a “form of godliness but denying its power,” you are a tare. You can be in a building and call it church, but if you live a life of lawlessness, you are denying that power to work in you. If you were truly godly, you would not live in sin.

As Paul said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!”

And that’s the point of gay christians. They want to continue in sin so that grace can abound. Just like adulterating christians, fornicating christians, porn watching and masturbating christians, lying christians, stealing christians, extortioner christians, sodomite christians, drunkard christians, and such that sin and call themselves christians.

According to Paul, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 is clear.

I’m reminded of one homosexual that inboxed or emailed Pastor DL Foster.

This homosexual said that Jesus is his Lord, not Paul or Moses that were used by the Lord to write portions of the Bible.

In essence, he was writing them off so that he could claim plausible deniability about the sin of homosexuality.

His error will end one way.

If Jesus was the only One to have written the Bible, he would still be condemned because of what Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-5. And because Jesus was there in Genesis 18 that appeared to Abram. And because of John 1:1.

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.”

Jesus is the Word of God and we see the same in Revelation 19:11-16 “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns.

He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.

And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”

So being that Jesus is the Word of God, He gave the Word of God to Moses, Paul, Peter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Daniel, and others and there is no escaping the wrath of God with plausible or presumptive deniability.

So, what’s it going to be?

Enemy of God or friend.

You can’t have it both ways.

And if you are a pastor, that claims to be a man of God with a name from the Bible as your “church,” I suggest you reconsider your ways. Or just do us all a favor. Change your church name to satan, and call yourself a man of the devil.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/07/14/they-are-satans-church-famed-pastors-tough-message-for-christian-denominations-condoning-homosexuality/

There is no question that pornography is a major issue in the world but it is a major issue in the house of worship among ministers of the gospel.

What would you do as a believer that may have a pastor that is watching porn? Even worse, what would you do if he was involved in child pornography?

Sadly, in both cases, most church people would cover it up for fear of destroying their church’s reputation.

Sadly, God destroyed its reputation the moment people compromise to sweep under the carpet a pastor’s Secret Sexual Sins.

Even people that claim to restore pastors undercover or behind everyone’s backs. The Bible is very clear about exposing the darkness. Grace is not given to cover sin but to expose it. Exposing sin is not to be done to destroy a person but to help them realize that sin is not right in the eyes of God. There is a difference between “gossip” and Biblical restoration according to Galatians 6:1-5.

Judging falls under this category of gossip according to Matthew 7:1-5. The entire context of Matthew 7:1-5, not just verse 1.

Many churches deliberately run from confronting this issue to expose it because people are afraid to. For the most part, people want to come to church, have a good time, see a show, and go home. Confronting sexual issues in the church is not on the list because confronting any sin puts the light on the entire church membership.

Many churches want to love people and pastors but the love for them must never exceed the love for truth and mercy. Truth exposes so that a church is right. God loves truth above loving people because God must be true to Himself. He will never lie and He will never sin. Therefore, by speaking the truth in love, we expose the hidden works of darkness. We must remember that God hates sin. Therefore, we must hate sin just as God does. Otherwise, God is perverted.

Ephesians 5:8-14 says, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

Paul never said not to expose it. He said it was a shame to talk about what was “done by them in secret.”

Cedric Cuthberg, pastor of an African Episcopal Church in Florida, was one of those pastors that got caught in such a sting. He pled guilty and is doing 6 years for downloading child porn.

This is a common practice to watch porn among 50% of pastors in the United States. Obviously a small percentage of pastors delve into child porn. There are approximately 300,000 protestant churches in the United States, which means that roughly 150,000 protestant churches have pastors that intentionally watch porn. According to blazinggrace.org 70% of Christians struggle with porn.

According to the late Ted Bundy, executed in 1989 for the murder of a 12 year old and responsible for 29 sex assaults and their deaths, said that porn was not the cause of his assaults and murders. Rather it was the fuel.

Many of them prepare their sermons in their “Pastor’s Study” in church. As soon as their sermon is prepared on their computer, they get this “Urge and Impulse” to watch porn on the same computer. This pastor crossed the line and downloaded child porn and that’s a crime.

Sadly, there are pastors that desire to have sexual contact with these innocent children and they make the mistake of setting themselves up. Not realizing that on the other side of the line or Internet connection is a police officer that knows how to talk the language of underage kids. Then these males go to meet them and are caught in their own web of deceit.

One of the greatest fears that I had when I was watching free porn on the Internet was that I would make the mistake of downloading child pornography. Whether intentionally or by accident. I knew that it would be a matter of time so before I made a mistake or desired to intentionally download any material, I made myself stop. Let me point out that at no time I had a desire for children. Having said that, I knew that when a person says that they do not have a desire, it is just a matter of time before the devil will tempt you.

The amount of websites for child porn is relatively small. There is approximately 100,000 websites for child porn.

The FBI is always on the look out in this relatively small community of perversion.

One former porn producer said in an interview that “child porn is the final frontier.”

What he meant by this was that after watching all the porn of adults of legal age, the desire to watch younger underaged kids do sex acts. Even worse is that these males (can’t call them men) desire to contact these kids to have sex with them. They will travel to far away exotic places where human trafficking of children is a serious issue, worldwide. Including the United States.

This is a crime. Downloading child porn is a crime and just to be in possession of any child porn will get you arrested.

Why do they watch child porn?

After watching all the adults, heterosexual and homosexual, the last level of perversion is children.

The amber alerts and child abductions is partly the reason behind what is done throughout the world.

How could a congregation discover a pastor’s child porn habits?

Many of you will disagree with what I am about to share. However, we must never disagree with the truth of God’s Word.

Hypocrisy is a leaven that must be removed and anything that has this leaven must go too.

Which would you rather have?

A hypocritical church or a church full of people that pretend to be holy but live ungodly lives?

Most people want both. A hypocritical church and people that pretend to live holy; having a form of godliness but denying its power.

But what kind of church does the Lord want?

Paul said in Ephesians 5:26-27 “…that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

What I am about to share is not absolute but it should be dealt with before other children are harmed and churches destroyed.

While it all depends on the situation, today, most churches are planted by the pastor, so this may be a little difficult to implement an investigatory policy.

Pastors for hire is a different story because in the vetting process, the search committee must now do the extra work of hiring a investigator, do criminal background checks, and other necessary investigations to insure that they have a pastor that is clean and without blemish.

Vetting committees that fail to do this is asking for trouble.

During the course of a hired pastors tenure, he should be subjected to unannounced periodic investigation which includes their personal devices, computers, and other instruments. The pastor’s study and all computers that is owned by the house of worship must be subjected to periodic checks for porn. The pass codes of every computer in the house of worship must be owned by a church administrator and can only be changed by the church administrator.

All church workers with computer access must be investigated as well.

Some will disagree and declare that privacy is invaded.

Well think of the child’s privacy and innocence destroyed.

Will it be your child that will go through an avoidable ordeal, or would you rather have your privacy invaded to protect them?

What about a pastor that planted a church? Accusations fly every day and if a group of people want to destroy the reputation of a pastor, it is very easy to do so. We know that false witnesses are everywhere and they jump at every opportunity to destroy a genuine work of the Lord. However, if such an accusation is brought, just go through the process of thoroughly investigating the matter.

As a pastor, I would not mind because if you have nothing to hide, then the investigation will show it. If not, then a pastor has a lot to worry about, including prison time.

After looking at the FB picture of Cedric Cuthberg, on the outside it appears that he was very much in control but you never judge a book by its cover. That’s what a rogue pastor is counting on. That you do not know what is really going on in his heart.

Secret Sexual Sins operates the same way.

As long as it is a secret, no one really knows and that means that the game of watching any form of porn continues.

As I have said many times, no one watches porn and doesn’t masturbate or act out sexually. There is no question in my mind that Cuthberg masturbates. Porn is fantasy sex. A man or a woman is pretending to have sex with that image. According to Dr. William Struthers, porn “hijacks” the brain and the person watching the porn is just going through the sexual acting out to satisfy his or her sexual urges.

Porn never leads you to less sexual acting out. It always leads to more acting out. It is not uncommon to have multiple ejaculations or orgasms. Jesus said that he that commits sin is a slave to sin. When it comes to porn, a man or a woman is a slave to dopamine. Dopamine is the reward drug that the brain desires. In essence, the chemicals that work in the body during sex is like a pharmacy. The person is using sex as a “medicinal property” to affirm, love, and satisfy themselves. This is the secondary reason why people do what they do.

The whole purpose of porn and masturbation is “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.”

It’s all about fulfilling the lust in the flesh and mind.

It doesn’t matter what a pastor may be going through.

It’s all about fulfilling the lusts of the flesh and mind.

So the next time you go to church, there is a 50/50 chance that your pastor may be watching porn.

To eliminate the chance of this happening, get your pastor to agree to an investigation paid for by the church.

What if something is found?

Don’t sweep it under the rug.

If something is found, then the next step is to remove that pastor according to your bylaws. If the law was broken in any way, instead of being an accessory to the crime or be found to obstruct justice, call the district attorney or law enforcement. Take action immediately.

14611142-a-woman-walking-by-a-guy-on-the-beach-checking-him-out-with-a-smile-on-her-faceTHE SUMMER DAYS ARE FILLED WITH LUST

Passive and active.

Is it possible to win this struggle?

Some of you have worked diligently and have kicked soft and hard core porn to the curb but there is “passive porn” that you are struggling with.

The magazines and newspapers are filled with passive porn.

These were areas that I struggled with after porn and masturbation were dealt a death blow. However, the urges and impulses, and muscle memory desired to have me. It is usually in this phase of the struggle where you are either going to fall or remain triumphant. Falling is the easy part. Keeping yourself from falling is the battle that most men and women find the toughest.

The passive porn is the teasers.

More so, it is the same bait that got you started into porn in the first place.

For instance clothing catalogues. The internet when you are reading news. When you are watching the weather and the weather woman looks like she is clubbing. When you are watching the sit around of what used to be “The View.” Or Fox News with all these young looking women wearing club wear.

Going graphic.

They sit with bare legs crossed, high skirt, plenty of cleavage and body hugging. Just like the prostitutes and porn stars.

Believe me when I tell you, all men get up in the morning to watch the news and they know it. So guess what they are going to wear? When you get up in the morning to catch the train, there is a certain female that you know will be wearing what she is wearing, so you plan to “check her out” every day.

Or women wear something that will catch his attention. The women zero in on him every day because she knows he is watching.

Lunch time, and then the ride home.

How can a man or woman live holy when all of these passive attacks are strategically placed to trip you up?

Jesus walked the earth with the same temptations (see Hebrews 4:14-16). Jesus proved this out as He walked the earth. While Jesus walked the earth perfectly, we, as humans in fallen flesh are far from perfection. However, we can win this battle when we set our minds on heavenly things, seeking those things which are above, not on things on the earth (see Colossians 3:1-10).

Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”

Jesus was not playing games when He made His first major address to the people of Israel.

Jesus said these words in Matthew 5:27-30  “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

Then Jesus closes the door to what every lustful man does.

“If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

And if that weren’t enough, Jesus closes the door on what we do with our hands to ourselves in masturbation or when we touch a woman other than our wives.

“And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

As Mike Cleveland of Setting Captives Free calls it. It’s “radical amputation.”

This means that we go to an extreme extent to prevent ourselves from sinning with our eyes and masturbate, or act out sexually with our hands.

Hebrews 12:4 says….

“You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.”

Or more literally, “You have not cut yourselves to shed your own blood to stop yourself from sinning.”

Then Paul and the writer of Hebrews, and John, the beloved apostle gives us a knockout punch.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says….

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Hebrews 13:4 says……

“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”

Revelation 21:8 says……

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

As the summer days are heating up, so are the women and men. There is nothing left for the imagination. Inside and outside the church. Sadly, a lot of men and women believe that they are not to blame. Forgive us, but when you wear what you wear. Spandex. Low cleavage, high dresses, hot pants now called “booty pants.”

There is this saying that is wicked.

“You can look but do not touch.”

Jesus killed that lie in Matthew 5:27-30.

Going to the supermarket, one woman wore her two piece bathing suit to the supermarket.

Women believe that it’s offensive for men to comment or look, but when you wear what you wear, the blame must be shared.

It is true that women wear certain clothing to attract male and female attention and so in spite of what they wear, the Lord Jesus still gives a man no excuse. We have been given the power to ignore what they wear. We may notice what sexually immoral women wear but as long as we guard the intent of what we notice, we can abstain from sinning with our eyes.

Passive pornography is everywhere.

Women are just as affected by the lusts of the flesh too. When a bare chested man walks by. Or when watching a “chick flick” with PG13 or MA rated movies are played where soft porn is observed.

When you go to the supermarket checkout counter, the magazines are strategically placed there with sexually provocative covers. However, there are magazines that do not carry those images. So in the mind of a lust filled man, he could be very creative.

How does a man or woman protect themselves?

First, if you are a born again believer, and you study the Word of God, there are plenty of ways to avoid what may be unavoidable.

Psalm 119:9-11 says….

“How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.”

Do you desire to be clean?

Then take heed or obey the Word of God.

Do you desire to seek God with all of your heart?

Then do not wander or walk away from His commandments.

How?

By hiding His Word in your heart that you do not sin against Him.

This is done when you hate sin like God hates sin. This perfect hatred of sin must be maintained for the rest of your life. The pleasures of this life lead to one thing………DEATH.

Romans 6:23 says……

“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

James 1:14-15 says…..

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full- grown, brings forth death.”

To be tempted is not a sin. To fall into sin after temptation is sin. Again, read James 1:14-15 of the process towards death.

To remain in unbroken fellowship with God requires moment by moment obedience to the known will of God.

That’s why the crucified life is the most difficult life for believers.

Jesus said in Matthew 16:24-27 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”

The crucified life is not about wearing a cross but taking upon the cross.

This is what Paul meant when he said by the Holy Spirit to mortify the deeds of the flesh in Colossians 3 and verse 5.

We must spend time making sure that our members remain dead to sin and that we remain alive to God.

As long as we are living in sin, we are dead to God and alive to the devil.

So how could this be accomplished?

Ignore what women and men are wearing. Stop looking to lust and look to please the Lord. Deliberate holiness pleases the Lord. Fill your minds with His Word and hide His Word in your hearts so that you do not sin against Him.

Finally, Romans 13:11-14 says…..

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

As promised, Kenneth Copeland and other evangelicals met with the pope.

Jude 4 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 is in full swing.

After all of the warnings and admonitions, it is a sad day.

The falling away, or defection from truth is happening before our eyes.

All for one goal.

To be unified in the Body of Christ.

Commonly called “ecumenism.

It’s defined as “worldwide or general in extent, influence, or application

a : of, relating to, or representing the whole of a body of churches

b : promoting or tending toward worldwide Christian unity or cooperation.”

How can the spirit of error agree with the Spirit of truth?

Is it possible to table error just to meet the needs of the poor, the outcast, and down trodden?

Humanity needs truth as well as humanitarian assistance BUT error cannot override truth. To suppress the truth to meet a humanitarian need is like giving people sustenance while walking them through the door to hell.

The error in catholicism is as plain as day, yet, regardless of the blatant error, they forge ahead to bring many together under one umbrella. The devil can be proud of his work to deceive the masses.

What is there to say?

We that name the name of Christ must depart from iniquity. We must hold the line and stay steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. Is meeting with the pope a sin? Is joining in a meeting of evangelical leaders with the pope a sin?

To answer this question, you have to go back into the history of catholicism.

You have to read the history of the works of Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, and William Tyndale.

Why was their work necessary?

When you answer this question, then you have to come to some conclusion that something is not right.

When you see that there is a clear doctrinal difference, there is no question that catholicism is a religion that was designed to deceive the masses.

Couple this with evangelical beliefs and charismatic beliefs, and you can see that this is a concoction of epic proportions.

Catholicism must renounce many of its questionable heretical doctrines. To assume that they have done so has yet to be seen, let alone be unquestionably confirmed.

But we all know that such a renunciation of catholicism is not going to happen.

From here on out, we must hold fast to the confession of our faith without wavering. We must remain true to the Word of God. We must never deny the Lord Jesus.

People of God, when a defection of this magnitude is before us, the only thing left to do is to stand in the truth. Confront the false doctrine of our day takes courage, faith, and strength because those that are in agreement with them will have no seat to sit in when the music stops.

The works of Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, and William Tyndale has been trampled upon and we can safely say that the whore of Babylon is ready to swallow everything in her path. Her bed of fornication has enlarged itself.

If you want to go with them, I cannot stop you, and neither can the Lord.

But one thing is certain.

On judgment day, tares will be separated from the wheat. Goats from the sheep. The righteous from the unrighteous.

Below is the link of the full story.

Let us weep between the porch and the altar.
