SEX ADDICTION DEFINED:
"Sex addiction is an uncontrollable need, obsessive desire, oppressive-escalating craving, and seeking, of sex and/or sexual activities such as pornography. Which an addict may compulsively indulge in, despite negative consequences. The mood altering latter stages of addiction produce a neuro-biological long lasting chemical change within the brain. These maladaptive self medicating behaviors are the sex addicts attempt to ease past and current pain. The real source of the problem lies hidden behind the behavior manifestations.'"
HYPOTHESIS: "ADDICTION IS AN EXTERNAL RESPONSE TO AN INTERNAL NEED, ACTIVATED BY FREE WILL." - SYNTHIA ESTHER
Biblical Definition of Addiction:
"When tempted, no one should say 'God is tempting me.' For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone, but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to death." - James 1:13-15.
The lack of intimacy bonding and attachment, as well as abuse in the sexual addicts early formative years, creates a thirst for a fix to fill their unmet needs of nurture, security, love, affirmation and acceptance. Jesus Christ is the only person who can fill your void and heal your broken heart. Synthia Esther Ministries seeks to provide free, biblical answers and insight that lead the reader towards repentance, salvation, sanctification, with keen God inspired spiritual solutions, that defeat addiction strongholds.
Many Christian's struggle in secret sin. Bondage to sex, pornography, and masturbation, have become strongholds that will ultimately destroy a person's life as sin thrives on secrets. There is hope! Jesus Christ is the bondage breaker who came to set the captive free, breaking the tie's that bind one's very soul (mind, will, emotions).
SEX AND PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION CAUSE AND AFFECT:
Sex addiction is a false substitute for love, providing a coping mechanism for inner pain and turmoil. Feelings of hopelessness abound, as an addicts secret fantasy life expounds. It is this escape method of the mind that Satan continues to use to his destructive advantage. "He who works his land will have abundant food but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment." - Proverbs 12:11
As fantasy, rituals, and sexually acting out take over your thought process, your mind becomes fixated like a heat seeking missile with a guidance system towards sex. Almost everyone and everything is seen through the mind of sexual preoccupation and provocation. God knows the heart, mind and soul of humanity. Psalm 94:11, "The Lord knows the thoughts of man, He knows that they are futile."
Nothing is hidden from God. Luke 8:17, "For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open."
"Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body" - 1st Corinthians 6:18.
GOD KNOWS THE SECRETS THAT YOU KEEP!
Sex addict's have grandiosity at their heart's core. Listen to what the word of God declares about such self-seeking, self-serving, bias behavior...
"And you felt secure in your wickedness and said, 'No one sees me,' Your wisdom and your knowledge, they have deluded you; For you have said in your heart, 'I am, and there is no one besides me.' But evil will come on you Which you will not know how to charm away; And disaster will fall on you For which you cannot atone, And destruction about which you do not know Will come on you suddenly." - Isaiah 47:10-11
"He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy." - Proverbs 28:13
"But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person - such a man is an idolater-has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God." - Ephesians 5:3-5
