Pornography and Masturbation

Ben:  Mm - yes, we all do. But is that how God works? When you pray for help with your temper or whatever, does the problem suddenly and miraculously disappear for life?

It sounds so nice doesn't it - pray for strength, KAPOW! - and become perfect, an instant shining hero, no more uncleanness. But that's not how human beings grow, is it?

Paul says about sex to the Corinthians “Don't go further than is written” - and end up with failure and shame.

Adam:  But what's the point in giving up one evil thing and keeping another? They're both shameful. How would that be progress? Bit like giving up liquor for Lent but drinking beer non-stop!

Agree?
