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.
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.
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.
What is the basis for Jesus’ position on pornography?
“But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery in his heart”. Matthew 5:27-28
- Pornography offends against the virtue of chastity: each Christian must respect the sanctity of his own human sexuality. In marriage, the conjugal act ought to express that faithful, permanent, exclusive, self-giving, and life-giving love between husband and wife.
- Pornography immerses oneself in a fantasy world, withdrawing from reality. While genuine love always involves a self-giving of oneself for the good of others, pornography entices a person to withdraw into a selfish world of perverted fantasy which may later be acted out to the detriment of oneself and others. This problem has increased dramatically, since the Internet offers “virtual reality” sexual interaction.
- Pornography exploits oneself or exploits others in some way for personal pleasure or gain.
A young man hopes that once he is married, the desires for illicit sexual arousal will subside. But what becomes of his lust once he marries her? It does not disappear; it is foisted upon his wife. The pornography has trained him to react to the sexual value of a woman, and nothing else. He has trained himself to believe that women should be physically flawless and constantly sexually accessible. Even if he rejects this intellectually, the fact remains that his attractions and responses have been conditioned and shaped by warped, pornography-inspired fantasies.
The Cycle of Pornography or the Cycle of Temptation
“Each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.” James 1: 14, 15
It all starts in the strength of an over-desire that leads into enticement. Many of these desires lead us into a fantasy world looking for some form of relationship. In the fantasy world we are “admired and respected” by beautiful models. We may be looking for a form of refuge from the stresses of life where nothing is asked of you. We may wish to be rewarded or recognized.
Sexual Triggers, such as an attractive person of sex on the computer, start the process. Some triggers are not so obvious such as boredom or stress. This leads to enticement (the first tempting thought), which might be accompanied by an emotion such as frustration
Then there comes a state of conception when desire becomes action, which could be ritual or habitual. You convince yourself that what you are doing is “no big deal”. You are just going to see what is new on line. Then you get closer and closer to indulging yourself (“the birth of sin”).
After this, the sin grows stronger. You get depressing thoughts such as, “there is no use in resisting this”. After we give in to temptation over and over again and moral brakes become weaker and weaker.
For many men and women who deeply struggle with sexual sin, a feeling of shame clings to them like a wet blanket and often become the biggest barrier against seeking help.
Finally we end up with the wages of sin: death is the consequence of sin. Yet, death isn’t the final stop of life; you still have an immortal soul that can suffer in hell or enjoy heaven: the all-satisfying beauties of Christ can be lost forever in the bondage of lust. Or they can be enjoyed forever in the purity of heart.
Why would I chase something that lasts a moment, when God is eternity and is the truth, Why would I sneak a peak for a moment, look at a woman lustfully for a second, it doesn’t last.
WHAT TO DO?
For those who have severe problems in breaking a habit of engaging in pornography or for those who are addicted, Sexaholics Anonymous is one answer to breaking their addiction: sex with self, promiscuity, pornography, adultery, unhealthy relationships, and erotic fantasy. Like most self-help programs, Sex Addicts Anonymous involves a twelve-step program.
PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE
The deliverance ministry should not be overlooked because JESUS CHRIST himself preached and demonstrated deliverance by casting out demons and healing the sick and delivering all who were oppressed of the devil.
(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)
Your Christian friend who is sinless can command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love of our Lord.
The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of lust and pornography and I command them to go to the abyss.” The remaining spirits are also delivered in the same manner as listed below.
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
SO MANY TODAY FOLLOW THEIR OWN WILL.
“Come and be My disciples, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who believe in Me. In the message from the Gospel of Saint Luke, you have My words.
If you wish to be My disciple, then you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Me. By these words, I wish to call you not to follow your own ideas and objectives but come and do what I ask of you. I want you to follow the mission I gave you knowing in doing My will you will be saved.
So many today follow their own will, which is often influenced by the evil one. He calls them to pursue money and to enjoy all the pleasures of the world. He induces you to drink alcohol and to take drugs and to follow the pleasure of the flesh. In doing this, you are living far from Me and you are destroying your life.
If I have called you to the married life, then follow what My Church teaches you. Live in love with your partner and never say yes to abortion for this is the killing of your son or daughter, the great gift which My Father gave you. You are to love every child from the moment of conception and never entertain the idea of abortion for it is a horrible sin, the killing of a innocent child.
All have to work and follow all the rules you were given to do and all you were asked to do. If you are asked to be celibate then ask Me for the graces you need to live a celibate life and I am your example for I lived a celibate life when I was on earth.
Be a person of prayer and come to Holy Mass every Sunday and during the week if it is possible. I extend My hand to you so take it and walk with Me every day and do not be afraid to carry your cross and I will help you to carry it. I love you with all My heart.”
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

DELIVERANCE FROM LUST AND PORNOGRAPHY 2
THE AMAZING MAGIC OF DELIVERANCE 2
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
