There are so many things we can say about pornography, but the ultimate issue is selfishness. It gratifies oneself without regard to the well being of anyone else. It is the mentality of "when I want it, where I want it, and how I want it." It is exalting oneself to the status of God and demand self satisfaction at will. So it is self-centered.
The true intimate relationship created and designed by God is NOT so. It is based on love flowing out of self, flowing towards your husband or wife, flowing out to the person whom you have united with in Christ.
So pornography is totally against the intimate relationship designed by God. It is meant to destroy that intimate relationship between husband and wife and to destroy the capacity to have such intimate relationship with your future wife or husband.
It is sin. And we all should hate sin to the utmost. We need to renounce it, hate it, flee from it, and stay away from it, and by the power of the Blood of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, God can keep us clean from this filthy defilement. God is the only one can keep us clean, so if you are troubled by this sin and bound by it, cry out to God for help! Don't rely on yourself, rely on Him, He is ABLE to SAVE. HE is MIGHTY to SAVE!
