Pornography is Trading Gratitude for Greed

Here’s a quote that I wasn’t able to fit into the sermon today, but that I had to find a way to share.

Porn is only consumed by thankless people.  The desire for porn is a desire to escape from what the Lord has given you into a fake universe full of things you do not have and will never have.  Porn is the trading of gratitude for greed.  Porn trades joy in the reality God has graced you with for greed in the counterfeit world he has not.  Defeating porn requires a grateful consideration of God’s good gifts to you.  …  Lust robs you of gladness.

– Heath Lambert, Finally Free

Gladness in God is an antidote for the disease of pornography.
