Brain scans find porn addiction

  1. US Reformation Prayer Network (under Mike and Cindy Jacobs) is doing 21 days of prayer and fasting for sex trafficking. Of course pornography goes hand in hand with this, so this is interesting information to us! You can join in this prayer initiative to rid our nation and Mexico of what is the #2 crime world-wide, expected to move up to #1 if things don’t change. Go to usrpn.org and join in! Each day provides education on how this evil operates world-wide and even in our own neighborhoods. If we pray, God will hear our prayers!

    Wow! Brain scans might become part of ACA. It might be used against people…just sayin.

    Can I give a quick health update? My daughter has been lethargic most of her life from a sluggish thyroid. We started taking the Iodoral and can I just say she is a completely different child! Energetic, able to process…we believe it is quite miraculous! Not quite as enthusiastic about coconut yet. Always take it with food or you might regret it! A few days ago, we had a friend ask, “what is that I smell? Coconut?” It must be from our skin!

    We have also been eating honey and cinnamon coated dates every morning (we even give it to our dog). Allergies are minimal, no sniffles, and my dog is acting youthful again! Dates should be added to your health blog. Those things are incredible.

    Can we expect an analysis about what’s going on at the U.N.?

    Can we know for sure that the same section of the brain is NOT lit up when sexual act between husband and wife is taking place?

      I don’t know but this is the verse that fits this sin:
      Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    This information about porn affecting one’s brain is totally accurate. The man, his last name Castro, who imprisoned those 3 young women for 10 years admitted at one of his hearings that he was “addicted to porn”. He attributed his crime to this addiction. I distinctly heard him say this, but of course it was never played again. Also, another well-known criminal who was addicted to porn was Ted Bundy. This information just scratches the surface as porn is more readily available today and easily accessed with the touch of a keystroke.

    Hi: I consider coconut oil to be God’s miracle food. Too many benefits to list–just “google” it. It is also supposed to be good for the brain! God is so good to provide us with such a food that so far as I know has not yet been tampered with by “man”.

    Also, these words that John wrote are so true!

    “Sin cannot be defeated other than by God’s way, which is through repentance and God’s power.

    It is impossible to defeat sin with anything other than God’s Holy Spirit and invoking the name of Jesus in prayer.”

    I know this from personal experience. I will just add one thing in addition to what John said in the first sentence; total surrender to God’s Will paves the way for whatever the sin is to be defeated. Praise God for His love and patience as He waits for us to recognize His power over sin in our lives! Thank you John for this
    important message!

    Years and years ago, when I was a teenager, God put this scripture into my mind and firmly into my memory!

    1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV)
    There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    Maranatha!

    off topic, but extremely important. Link shows the Israeli response to Pres Obama’s speech at the UN today, where he said that Israeli existence is dependent on a Palestinian state.
    Some very interesting quotes about one of the most disturbing thing ever from a US president, and that if this is the current direction of the US towards Israel, expect even more pressure down the road.

    Pres Obama meets with Bibi on the 30th. and isn’t it interesting that John suggested stocking up on emergency supplies about a week ago.

    John, please correct me if I have misunderstood your teachings, but isn’t the level of correction/judgment from God dependent on the level of the pressure the US puts on Israel?

    It’s only taken Science 2,000 years to catch up with the Bible.

    Interesting post John. Proof that sin isn’t always material or physical as the naturalist would like to suppose. Porn doesn’t have material existence, it’s just a representation of something which also is quite materially addictive.

    Love to see the sidebar comments on minimally processed natural food. If big ag/media promote it you can be certain it’s unhealthy.

    Since our daughter was born with a brain defect and has multiple diabilities, we have learned abou the brain. If you look at the back of the brain, it’s all lite up. This is called the occipital region of the brain (both sides). This processes vision.
    I’m not surprised that the occiptal region of the brain is lite up. Males are visually oriented. So I suspected this region is very well developed more than womenn’s.
