HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

ANGER

The most significant type of anger influencing the development of homosexual attraction in childhood is anger with oneself. As a result of ongoing rejections by peers, many boys acquire an intense dislike for their bodies and view them as weak, unattractive and unmasculine. This can lead to highly risky and self destructive addictive and sadomasochistic behavior for an intense dislike of them. One can also become obsessed with the bodies of one’s peers who are well-built and muscular. The ultimate expression of self-hatred and aversion to one’s body is seen in those who undergo sex change surgery.

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

Intense hatred is seen in homosexuals within the media or in the educational, political, ministerial and mental health fields when they attempt to force our culture to change its views on homosexuality. They direct their anger against the Judeo-Christian morality, the nuclear family and the basic differences between men and women.

A homosexual can grow to hate his body as small and weak. In spiritual therapy, his healing can progress by being thankful for his body that God gave him by viewing his soul as much more important as the body and by being thankful for his special male gifts.

HOMOSEXUAL ADDICTIVE DISORDER

The sexually compulsive, highly reckless and life-threatening behavior in a large percentage of homosexuals would indicate the presence of an addictive disorder. While the specific diagnostic category of sexual addiction has not been officially accepted, yet in the mental health field, clinical programs exist for such treatments along with journals of sexual addiction.

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

In spite of the danger of acquiring AIDS, enormous numbers of males do not protect themselves sexually. One study identified 31% of respondents in sixteen cities had engaged in unprotected sex. One article, “Why Gay Men are having Risky Sex” described the situation as explained and claimed that HIV infections had quadrupled in San Francisco since 1987. In many individuals this behavior is frequently preceded by the use of alcohol and drugs. This situation existed for some because of numerous emotional conflicts.

NARCISSISM

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

Narcissism or selfishness is another major factor influencing the attraction to the homosexual lifestyle. There is a tendency to not have to make a total commitment to one person. This behavior is almost childlike because it leads to minimal obligations in relationships and few limitations in the pursuit of pleasure. Continue reading HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

A NOISY MIND

An immoral mind is a noisy mind because it is filled with the clatter of one’s own ego. Other noisy minds lose its center because its energies are scattered over a multitude of concerns: multi-tasking. This is the big flaw of our culture.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

When the mind is quiet, things become clearer. We become aware of what we must do. We must learn to slow down our minds to become more focused and more sensitive to God’s presence.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY?

Dr. Victor Cline (1996) posited four progressive effects of pornography:

(1) Addiction, where the need to view pornographic materials leads to a loss of free control over behavior;

(2) Escalation, where the person delves into progressively harder pornography, usually to attain the same level of sensation and arousal;

(3) Desensitization, whereby the user is no longer morally sensitive to the shocking, repulsive, perverted, or immoral quality of the material, but instead views it as acceptable and begins to look upon others as objects; and

(4) Acting out, where the fantasizing becomes overt behavior. This includes normalized aggression towards women in sexual and other interpersonal encounters. Pornography kills love!

The issue of sexual addiction is catching society unawares. All around us marriages are beginning to fall apart; husbands are getting caught with pornography, in affairs, and visiting prostitutes.

On a more serious note, there is a proven direct correlation exists between crimes of rape, child abuse, and the physical abuse of a spouse, and the proliferation of pornographic materials in a community (Uniform Crime Report, 1990). One out of every six persons in our federal and state prisons is a sex offender, and sex crimes are second only to drug crimes.

MARIJUANA AS MEDICINE 2

There is no level of marijuana use that is actually completely safe. . even the casual use of marijuana changes the brain. This new marijuana is beyond simple medical use for pain.

MARIJUANA MEDICINE

The adolescent brain — particularly the part of the brain that regulates planning for complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making and social behavior — is not fully developed until the early to mid-20s.

Marijuana also affects brain development, and when it is used heavily by young people, its effects on thinking and memory may last a long time or even be permanent. And a large long-term study in New Zealand showed that people who began smoking marijuana heavily in their teens lost an average of 8 points in IQ between age 13 and age 38. Importantly, the lost cognitive abilities were not fully restored in those who quit smoking marijuana as adults.

IS MARIJUANA ADDICTIVE?

Research has found that 1 in 11 of all marijuana users will become addicted to the drug. And if a person begins using under the age of 18, that number rises to one in six people.  We also know that almost 60% of new marijuana users each year are under age 18.

LOTS OF ADDICTIONS

Most people are addicted to something, be it a substance or one’s own self-concept. Anything that steals life from us and causes us to make illogical or hasty decisions is our addiction: anything we cling to instead of God. The object of the addiction, whether it is drugs or alcohol or sex are not the primary issue. Rather, it is becoming obsessed with them: a false sense of love. It includes many other areas: chocolate, food, Facebook, power, fame, pornography, even driving too fast, etc.

The truth is, we were never meant to be completely satisfied. Saint Augustine states “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” We give all our time and energy to the addiction, instead of love. We were created for love but we seek it apart from the Creator. Addiction, then, displaces and supplants God’s love as the source and object of our deepest true desire.

Addiction is a spiritual disease, a disease of the soul, an illness resulting from this same longing, frustrated desire, and deep dissatisfaction – which is ironically the necessary beginning of any spiritual path.” Continue reading HEALING THE ADDICTIVE BRAIN

MARIJUANA, the INSIDE DOPE 2

IS IT GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH?

Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug worldwide, with 5 million daily users worldwide.

Christians in America are facing the challenge of a majority approval of marijuana. A recent Gallup Poll revealed that 58% of Americans now favor its legalization, and 67% of ages 18 to 29 back legalization. Yet when Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12% favored legalization.

By September 2017, there was some form of marijuana legalization in 29 states and the District of Columbia. This massive change has occurred in less than fifty years, and it is a major sign of the seismic shift occurring in our culture—a shift that should concern Christians deeply.

What do we know about marijuana? Is it good for our health? Or can it be harmful and even lead to psychosis? But, most important, how does the Bible deal with it?

OUR CRAVINGS

We all seem to be guilty of craving something that we cannot have. Some of us refuse to let go of these cravings.

CHANGING THE WAY WE LOOK AT LIFE

saving sexaholics

It takes a deep sense of humility to change long established attitudes. EGOS ARE AT WORK HERE. Your ego must be tamed. The power to be more selfless comes from the power of God. “The Kingdom is within you.”                                                                  Luke 17:21

When we stop fighting against those things that can’t be changed, contentment becomes a possibility. Hope and openness enable us to see our possibilities. Without hope, there is no growth in our communion with God and with others.

LET GO AND LET GOD.

The AA saying at Alcohol Anonymous is “Let go and let God.” We relinquish our concerns into the Hands of God so that we can live our lives without energy-depleting fear. Unreasonable fear is a terrible enemy. Many of us try to be in total control of our lives, and we discover that the results are disastrous.

SAVING SEXAHOLICS

You can be so bogged down with a problem that you lose your creative energy to find your way out of it.

There is no promise that storms won’t be part of our lives. But there is a promise that we won’t navigate through them by ourselves:”Trust in the Lord forever; He will always protect us.”                                                                                                                                Isaiah 26:3, 4

Could we actually believe that saying yes to God would bring us harm? It will bring us gain and not loss.

The key to our growth is our willingness to leave some space for God to do His work within us. We have hope because we know that we are loved.

DEMONIC INFLUENCE IS REAL.

Demons cannot enter into a person’s body without having some kind of legal permission and legal right to be able to do so. They need some kind of an entry point to be able to get in and attach to someone, and that entry point will be their door opener. That something specific will be their legal right. This is Spiritual Warfare and these persons must be delivered.

REAL TRANSFORMATION

We are all spiritually powerless and not just those physically addicted to a substance Some Twelve Steppers settled for mere sobriety from a substance instead of a real transformation of the self. 

Usually, there is little removal of most defects of character.  We would rather be ruined than changed. Our inability to see our personal failures is paralleled by our need for deliverance. You cannot heal what you need delivered; what will remain in control of you is from within, festering and destroying you and those around you..

DELIVERANCE FROM ADDICTION ASSURED 2

FREEDOM

Freedom is the corner stone of all great nations. It is an essential human right. Self-discipline is the foundation of freedom.The complete opposite is the feeling good thinking: “If it feels good, do it.”

ADDICTION

Addiction robs us of self-discipline, freedom and our own dignity. Of course, this leads to slavery to alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, gambling, sex, violence and shopping. These addiction attacks take over our bodies, but also our minds, hearts, spirits and check books. Those who are paralyzed by addiction follow sheepishly wherever the flock leads. Addiction clouds our judgment and causes us to lose sight of our essential purpose in life.

Aldous Huxley said, “Addiction is an increasing desire for an act which gives less and less satisfaction.” Quite the opposite is a person who is free: he or she is quietly confident and peaceful with all manner of positive thoughts.

An addict needs a strategy to solve the problem. The Alcoholics Anonymous has 12 steps that have been successful, but there is a missing ingredient: EVIL INFLUENCE.

ADDICTION AND  DELIVERANCE

ADDICTION DELIVERANCE

One can be laden with all sorts of addiction. These include: alcohol, cigarettes, masturbation just to add a few. This addiction must be dealt with on a spiritual level. Casting out demons is the only way to get rid of these demons that drive the person to do these things in the first place. The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

One minister of healing had a record of 70% recovery of drug addiction, compared to 5% by the public health system, simply by this form of healing ministry. We are dealing with desperate people who need help right now; they don’t want a sermon about the hereafter. What willpower cannot accomplish, Christ’s healing power can and does.

The Bible talks about the flesh, also known as the “Old Man”: the part of the person that is rebellious and wants to do its own will rather than the will of God and is open to be influenced by the Devil. “Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walk about, seeking whom he may devour.”                            1 Peter 5:8.

“For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”                                                                                                        1 John 2:16

Ask the Lord what caused this addiction. This will help you to solve the mystery of this problem. Addiction often has its origin

The work of demonic powers is often present in cases of addiction. Our struggle is with evil powers. Drugs and alcohol are a demonic doorway to the supernatural world. When you use it, you enter a dark world of destruction, depression, anxiety, confusion, and restlessness.

The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

DRUG ADDICTION

Cigarette and Drug Bust

Smokers already know that smoking adversely affects virtually every organic system of the human body and bodily function. The smoker opens the door to the spirit of self destruction and commits “slow-suicide”. The heart and blood are affected. The eyes and nasal passages are inflamed and burned. The respiratory system easily falls prey to emphysema and asthma. Tobacco, nicotine and smoking attack and break down immune systems so cancers can develop unrestricted. Common to smokers are lung cancer, throat cancer and lip cancer.

We are responsible to God for the care of our body.  We are held responsible by God, for the care and use of our physical body. states: “What? Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. “                                                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

We open ourselves to our physical destruction: “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.”                1 Corinthians 3:17
