Surfing for God


Why Is A Book About Porn Addiction Called “Surfing for God”? 

Almost a century ago, G. K. Chesterton wrote that the man who knocks on the brothel door is knocking for God. If he were writing today, he might say that the man who surfs the web for porn is surfing for God. If nothing else, this truth means that sex is a signpost to God.

Maybe you’ve heard the saying that in a marriage the sexual relationship is a barometer for the relationship in general. When a husband and wife enjoy a healthy emotional, relational, and spiritual connection, most of the time good sex follows. In the same way, a man’s sexual appetite is a barometer for what’s going on inside his heart. A man’s sex drive consists of more than testosterone and the buildup of seminal fluid pressing for biological release, more than being visually stimulated and feeling aroused.

Sexual arousal is an accumulation of your experiences, deep needs, and unconscious beliefs. Your heart shares a deep connection to your body parts. The way you are sexually aroused reflects what’s happening deep in your soul. This is why the Apostle Paul wrote, “There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact” (1 Cor 6:16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”).

      Have you ever thought that when you stop chasing what you need so much and try to focus more within, in sorting yourself out, God might just bring it to you. Try it. Take time to sort yourself our in all areas. 😀 Your eyes, your mind, your heart. 😀

        I hear you bro, been doing that for a while now. Getting to your site was one such venture.. It’s always an ongoing process.. And the Bible also says that we should not trouble ourselves for anything but through prayer and petition, make our desires known to Him. I’m sure my time will come, it feels good to read that things are beautiful on the other side.. Gives ‘us’ hope.

        😀 I am glad you have found hope. In Christ, all is well. So, how have you been doing? Are you ok? You were to give me a call a while back.

      Hey Penelope,
      Hope you are well. I am so sorry about what you are going through. I totally understand the bondage and frustration that it brings. Where are you at the moment?
