Why I believe in Jesus Christ

Why I believe in Jesus Christ
I apologize for the long post but I want to share a very raw and real testimony with you all. The Lord Jesus Christ delivered me from sexual immorality (or P*rn addiction). This may be inappropriate for those of you who are younger than 18.

I can remember being as young as 12 being sexually attracted to women and watching sexual content online. It started off with a few images, then it escalated to videos, and I became addicted. For years I watched extremely graphic sexual content online during my free time
.

I actually consumed a lot of p*rnographic content on Tumblr, which is the main reason why I am sharing it on here. I would spend countless hours looking at GIFS, videos, erotic stories, and images. Things became so extreme that I almost sold my soul to the devil.

But in January of 2020 something radical happened deep inside of me. I knew deep in my conscience that I needed my soul to be cleansed somehow from all of the evil that I watched. At first, I had no idea how, but then I sincerely prayed to the Lord and said that I needed Him. The next morning I was delivered!


Now I can say that the Lord Jesus delivered me with confidence because I would always try to stop my addiction by my own strength and would fail. I used an app called blocksite to try and stop myself, but I would always find a way around it. Also, for years I was in denial that I even had an addiction, which made matters worse. This is more than just deliverance, this is a literal miracle!


This all goes back to the Gospel because I and the whole world have sinned against God. But Jesus Christ died while we were still sinners and rose on the third day. This is good news because we cannot save ourselves in our own strength but we need a Savior to help us. And I can say with confidence that He is my Lord and Savior. Also, if you are trapped in sin you can go to Jesus! The Bible says that “ If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).


And lastly, I want to speak about eternal life and the Kingdom of God. When I think about my past sins, I know deep down that I deserve Hell. But now because I believe in Jesus Christ, I have everlasting life. As Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life”.

RE: Why I believe in Jesus Christ
People don't come back from the dead, and dead people can't save anyone. You were saved by the Jesus who lives in your imagination.

As for me, I reject salvation unconditionally. I pay my own debts, and I do not consent to anyone dying in my place, and I have no interest in living forever.

RE: Why I believe in Jesus Christ
Hi there. I'm happy to hear you were able to change something about yourself that bothered you.

But your thread is titled "Why I believe in Jesus Christ." Your post is a little murky in explaining, why you believe. It simply states that (at one point) you decided to believe, and then good things happened.

Would you mind delving into a deeper discussion about that?

If you need a fictional being to threaten or bribe you into doing the right thing, the problem is you.

Wherever did you get the notion that watching pornography is evil or sinful? Did I miss the verse that says 'Yea, the men of Sidon did rubbeth one out unto "Big Hooter Mamas (director's cut)", and thus they made themselves an abomination unto the Lord'?

RE: Why I believe in Jesus Christ
Testimonies like this seem like a salacious way to talk about porn and how naughty you felt. The only thing you really talk about in any detail is the porn and how bad you felt.

"Things became so extreme that I almost sold my soul to the devil."

What does this mean? Do you mean literally? This tells me very little about what actually happened or what you did. As far as a heartfelt testimony goes, this doesn't feel very honest. You're hiding things. Not for benefit of protecting us from hearing the gorey details because you seem willing to divulge about the porn just fine.

"The next morning I was delivered!"

You don't explain how. You explain what it was like to try saving yourself and how you failed but there is no explanation of what exactly Jesus did for you. You prayed and asked to be saved and then...? What? Did Jesus come down and slap your hand when you tried to watch another porn video? THAT would be a literal miracle.

You're not actually here to tell us anything real or true from your heart. You're not even here to talk about Jesus. You just want to get off on telling us how dirty and bad you felt. And to share your favorite Tumblr porn pages. Well go on. Get on with it.

I guess we'll find out soon if Ai Somoto wanted to have a discussion or drop off a religious pamphlet and leave.

Hallelujah, I guess...but you do have to wonder why god hasn’t helped the seething masses of Christian addicts. Must really like you.

Maybe you should put in a good word with the big guy for them?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I missed this on the first reading:

Quote:Things became so extreme that I almost sold my soul to the devil.

You realize porn is free, right?
