The Devouring, Unsatisfying Slavery Of Addiction

Any Kind Of Addiction, Porn, Sex, Food, Alcohol, Spendthrift, Laziness, Lying, Drugs, Nicotine.... Name your own.

Common Sense Commentary: During the Common Sense days of the past, drug addiction was universally known to be simply a sin, bad behavior, or weak character. Ahh, but times have changed, the Liberal elite experts are now totally converted to Political Correctness and regulated, lock-step thought. Addiction now is an illness, a disease, societies fault and deserving to be subsidized and treated at tax payer's expense. But, lo, unlike other illnesses, it is an illness self created by itself  and a disease without a germ or preventive medication. Addiction, of whatever description is, by nature, at its beginning, voluntary, of free will choice. Then it's roots grow deeper and deeper and deeper until it is involuntary, automatic and out of control. That is why we must deal with temptation at its first appearance, that day, that hour, that minute. If it is not resisted immediately, it compounds itself with each yielding commitment and becomes more and more difficult and then impossible to control, but it, instead, controls you. Read the following verse over and over and pray your way into its truth so that it becomes a deep rooted part of who your are.... with God's grace and guidance. This is what Common Sense parents taught their children when I was young... "If you never take the first drink, you will never be an alcoholic". That old axiom is also true with any and every temptation to sin. At first acquiescence to sin, God's Spirit, our bodies or conscience screams back at us ... STOP, DON'T TAKE ANOTHER SWALLOW, DRAG OR TINGLE!!!  Violating that warning could be your unreturnable  cross-roads of life.

"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." 1 Cor.10:13

Porn really is bad for you! Lonely Japanese man who amassed a SIX-TON pile of dirty magazines died when it collapsed on top of him... and his body wasn't found for six months (UK Daily Mail)

  • The man, identified only as Joji, was found dead in his flat by a cleaner in Japan
  • The 50-year-old had such a huge porn collection that it weighed in at six tonnes
  • He was only discovered when his landlord went to the flat over unpaid rent
  • Not clear whether he died and fell into the magazines or was if he was crushedDe

A lonely Japanese man who amassed more than six tons of porn died when a huge pile of magazines fell on top of him.
And even more tragically, the man's body was only discovered six months later when the landlord entered the flat to find out why the rent had not been paid.
The man's lowly death was revealed by a member of the cleaning team, who said his company had been hired to remove the magazines discreetly in a way that would not be noticed by neighbours and the man's family to save them from the shame.

He said that the dead man, a 50-year-old former carmaker identified only by the name Joji, had died buried underneath under a pile of the pornographic magazines.
It was unclear if he had suffered a heart attack and fallen into the stacks of magazines which had then fallen on top of him, or whether he had been crushed by the mass of paper. 
But the cleaner said that if he was still conscious, the paper would probably have muffled his cries.
Every space in the flat was filled with piles of magazines, which also stacked on tables and on shelves.
There were also clippings from erotic magazines where it appeared the man had cut out his favourite articles, and thrown away the rest of the magazine. 
Despite his trimming, at the time of his death the collection weighed in at six metric tons (13,228 pounds). 

"Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags." Prov.23:19-21.
"But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruptionAnd shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray...." 2 Peter 2:12-15.

some will say...."my private addiction isn't hurting anybody".
So says the rotten apple inside a barrel of apples.
Given time it will destroy the whole barrel.
Get wisdom. It's the only hope. Proverbs 2
