Pornography has become a destructive plague. It is like a ragingstorm, destroying individuals and families, utterly ruining what wasonce wholesome and beautiful.

Some consider addictions simply asbad habits that can be conquered by willpower alone, but many peoplebecome so dependent on a behavior or a substance that they no longersee how to abstain from it. They lose perspective and a sense of otherpriorities in their lives.

“Pornography impairs ones abilityto enjoy a normal emotional, romantic, and spiritual relationship witha person of the opposite sex. It erodes the moral barriers that standagainst inappropriate, abnormal, or illegal behavior. As conscience isdesensitized, patrons of pornography are led to act out what they havewitnessed, regardless of its effects on their life and the lives ofothers.” -Dallin H. Oaks

If you or someone you love struggleswith addiction, there is hope. Addiction recovery groups sponsored byLDS Family Services are available to help you and your loved onesovercome addictive behavior.

Thanks Seth.
