Spiritual Porn Addiction

I have a very deep and sincere concern for this generation of Christians. We are truly a unique group with a unique set of problems. Though we're not the first generation to experience the hype and control of institutional Christianity, we are definitely the first to consider divorcing ourselves from it. This decision alone creates a whole new set of problems that our parents and grandparents never dreamed of facing. They tolerated the religious abuse because they didn't think they had a choice in the matter. Our generation is the first to explore the possibility that a Christian person could venture out "into the wild" after being bred and born in captivity. Deciding to leave is the easy part; learning to live in the wild and survive without institutionalized religion to feed us and care for us is quite another.

 

I suppose what concerns me the most is the fact that most of us have been duped into believing things about the Christian walk that are simply not true, and many of the things that ARE true have been greatly exaggerated and embellished to strengthen their blow. Because of the fact that the majority of our Christian lives were spent watching the Christian play at church, we have grown accustomed to sitting mindlessly through the show while demanding to be entertained. Every spiritual facet of the "personal relationship with God" has been caked with makeup, airbrushed, pumped with steroids, injected with botox, sprayed with perfume and stuffed with implants. In the end, we're left with a "Glam Shot" perception of "relationship" that is about as real as a fifty dollar blow-up doll. It's perfect for the theater, but when it comes to a real, one-on-one relationship, it's just impossible.

 

 

Leaving the Christian Church today and setting out to find your own relationship with God is about as likely as a man addicted to pornography believing he can get married and find similar fulfillment. I have a friend in my life who I honestly believe is a "Christian porn addict". I'm not saying he is addicted to pornography in the sense that you might think, but he is addicted to what I call, "Christian pornography". This type of "pornography" is a version of Christianity that blows up and exaggerates everything in an effort to spiritually arouse its audience. We have become so good at painting these spiritual fantasies that people have actually become addicted to them because the very idea of them brings excitement and gratification.

 

The addiction to these spiritually gratifying concepts is almost identical to an addiction to pornography - some people can't get turned on without it.

 

 

Every part of the Christian walk has been romanticized and glamorized to the point where we have no concept of what God really wants to offer us.

 

 

I know that it would sound lovely and cliché if I told you that sex in the context of marriage is much more fulfilling than watching pornography, but the fact is, it doesn't even compare.If you were to use a "pleasure meter" to identify which is more physically satisfying, pornography would win hands down. Pornography is like a super sonic dose of pure gratification to the body, while sex in the context of marriage is sustainable and eternal. The same is true with substances like Methamphetamines and Heroin. We would all like to think that a family day at the park would outweigh the high that Meth and Heroin offer, but let me assure you that nothing could be further from the truth. These drugs provide a high that completely blows away anything this life has to offer under normal circumstances. Being a person who came from a life of drug addiction, I can tell you first hand that one of the biggest challenges I faced after walking away from drugs was my ability to find fulfillment in the "every day" things of life. In order to do that, one has to change their thinking altogether. The drug addict seeks total fulfillment in the "here and now," and the non-drug addict looks for overall fulfillment in "the long run" of life. The decision to switch from the extreme lifestyle of Meth use to a life of normalcy is quite difficult and almost never attained.

 

 

Likewise it is almost impossible for a Christian who has been raised on a steady diet of spiritual pornography to settle down and be content with the everyday life of REAL spirituality and relationship. Every aspect of "relationship with God" that they have been spoon fed has been laced with religious PCP in an effort to keep them coming back for more every Sunday, and the real authentic truth doesn't even compare to the spiked version they grew up with.

 

 

It seems that at every angle of spirituality we have been fed an unrealistic and glamorized perception of "how it's supposed to be"; this worries me. These ideas sound absolutly wonderful. However when put into action, it's a lifestyle, or concept that is ultimately impossible to sustain for more than a week or two. It's just not realistic to think anyone could have a "burning passion" for God twenty-four hours a day for the rest of their life! When personal things like prayer (that was meant to be shared in secret - from the quiet place in your heart) is turned into a super spiritual experience that shakes heavens foundations, we are setting ourselves up for certian failure. Ultimately, when you can't sustain a certian level of required emotional excitement, you eventually begin to feel condemned regarding your Christian walk. For many well meaning Christians, this extremism has been applied to every facet of their faith. We have an entire generation of people who honestly think a relationship with God is supposed to be like a Hollywood action packed romance thriller. It has been so accentuated and romanticized, that when it's finally compared to the real thing; the lie seems a thousand times better!

 

 

The problem is that everything we have been taught about how our personal relationship with God is supposed to look is an exaggerated lie and absolutely impossible to obtain. This kind of relationship with Him simply does not exist! Even God doesn't expect it. Some people spend the better part of their lives flinging themselves here and there in a desparate attempt to achieve something that was all smoke and mirrors originally for the purpose of entertaining and inspiring a congregation. When all is said and done, most people have NO idea what to really expect when it comes to a REAL personal relationship with Him. When the real thing is set before a seasoned spiritual porn addict, it is quite frankly, unappealing.  

 

 

Sadly I have found that when sincere hearted people step away from the plastic, made-up world of super star spirituality in an attempt to experience real relationship with God for the first time in their lives, they usually get bored and frustrated and find themselves running back to their church for a quick spiritual porn fix. They start feeling like they're dying inside because nothing looked the way they were told it would. They feel about as awkward talking to God as Moses must have felt when God instructed him to "speak to the rock." What the hell do I say??? Ultimately they give in, just as Moses did and they run back to what was familure and what required no intimacy to perform. It takes less intimacy to beat someone then it does to talk to them. 

 

For a spiritual porn addict, worshipping alone in your bedroom doesn't even compare to the ten member band, complete with lights and a state-of-the-art sound system. An addict doesn't even feel like they've experienced worship until they got goose bumps, sang their heart out and then cried like Miss America during the last song. REAL worship almost never provides any of those modern day conviences. It's like comparing a sincerely written Thankyou note to an AC/DC concert.   

 

 

It's kind of like the movie all your friends ranted and raved about. They begged you to go see it because they thought it was the best movie ever made.For weeks on end, all you heard them do was recite their favorite quotes and talk about how great it was.Finally you go watch the movie, and it ends up being a big let down because they'd built it up so much in front of you. The truth is, you probably would have loved the movie too, but after being contaminated by their exaggerated enthusiasm, the movie never stood a chance.It was bound to be a let down.

 

 

If I were going to give any advice to this generation of Christians, I think first and foremost I would say to let go of everything.Walk into this relationship with no pre-determined expectations.Forget everything you've heard about the way it's supposed to be.Forget all the embellished testimonies and stories people recited from the stage of your church.Start out as though you are the first person in the world to have a relationship with God.Be open to absolutely anything.

 

 

I have found that "true spiritual porn addicts" almost always reject the message I preach. It's simplicity angers and annoys them.It's so unattractive and dull that they can't imagine trading their present erotic spirituality for it.This is precisely why the Pharisees wanted to execute Jesus.He was a disappointment.They were looking for a reigning king and instead they got a dirty homeless carpenter.We're no different in today's institutional religious world than the Pharisees were in Jesus' day.Ironically, we still insist on preaching the "reigning king relationship" to everyone -even though Jesus hasn't returned as a reigning king yet.We STILL can't accept the carpenter.Getting someone to trade in the reigning king perception for the carpenter is nearly impossible.

 

 

Just like marriage in the physical realm, true relationship with God cannot be expected to deliver a constant state of passionate spiritual arousal.There are times when this happens, but if you hang your entire relationship on it, you're in for a world of disappointment.In many ways, some churches remind me of the married couple who based their relationship on their "hot sex life".When things inevitably cool off, they have to participate in even more bizarre and wild behavior just to keep it "hot and alive".It certainly explains why so many Christian groups get caught up in crazy spiritual fads. Their spiritual perceptions of relationship demands that things be kept at a spiritually sensual boiling point at all times.It's like they are open to anything that will rekindle the fire of their spirituality for just another day.

 

 

I would honestly encourage everyone to take an honest look at their relationship with God and ask some important and deep questions.When you praise Him, what words do you use?Do you use the same phrases and terms you've heard a thousand other people recite at your church?Do you lift your hands and hop up and down like the people on the worship team?Do you teeter totter back and forth from right to left with your face tilted upwards, your elbows down and your arms extended out, your palms facing up, with a look of painful desperation on your face?

 

My question is this: How would you express yourself if you hadn't watched everyone else show you how?What words would you use, if you hadn't memorized the one's they gave you?What would you say if you didn't already have a script?Would you really "cry out to the Lord" or would you be more inclined to just talk to Him about your life?Would you really lie on your face and wail at the altar, or would you just sit quietly and think about Him?How would it all play out if you had never observed another Christian in your entire life?

 

 

What if God promised you right now that no matter how much money you gave in the offering, He would never give you one red cent for the rest of your life unless you earned it?What if He guaranteed you that you would never receive a healing from Him regardless of the sickness or injury?What if you never saw a miracle again until the day you died?What if no one ever gave you a "word from the Lord" from this day forward? What if you became crippled and couldn't find a way to get to Church?What would become of your relationship with God if these things were to happen?

 

 

I believe that we need to assess our lives and take a close and honest look at what we have. I fear that many people who have come from an institutional mindset really don't have much.What they do have is a handful of stuff that is absolutely useless in the real world.They have a pocket full of spiritual fairy dust that only works when they're inside the walls of their church, and when they try to sprinkle it out in the real world, nothing happens.

 

 

Survival in the real world of "relationship with God" comes in finding enjoyment in the little things, and in "the long run" of life.It comes when you commit to being normal and give up your spiritual aspirations of becoming a super spiritual prophet, a preacher, or a miracle worker.The moment you're ok with being just like everyone else and you no longer feel the need to validate your spirituality in the eyes of anyone, you will be well on your way to knowing the real Him.When the words "God told me" don't need to pass through your lips in order to impress the person you're talking to, and when you're more willing to admit that you don't know what the heck He's telling you, you are closer than you could imagine.When you're more touched by a warm dinner with neighbors than you are by an emotional church service, you will have swallowed His very heart.When the focus of your life goes from getting answers to your prayers to becoming answers to the prayers of others, you'll know Him like never before.

    "Even though Jesus hasn't returned as a reigning king yet. We STILL can't accept the carpenter. Getting someone to trade in the reigning king perception for the carpenter is nearly impossible." So true! It was this point that had me hooked in William Young's "The Shack". I have come from the "spiritual porn addiction" Pentecostal church, where we would start "Spiritual Warfare" if we didn't feel the "anointing", all
    to keep up the ecstasy, and convince ourselves that we were accomplishing something good for the Kingdom. LOL, what a crock; I feel like I have wasted so much precious time and energy to false religion like this. Now I get my anointing and ecstasy from helping others. I wondered why at times I felt flat, bored, and unfulfilled after coming out of the IC; now I know! :-)

    Thanks Darin. You used this term in the "Glitter" podcast, and my ears perked up to the truth of it, realizing that much more could be said about it. It's really no different than other religions with wishful thinking and trying to TAKE something from God that He has not given. How much better to quietly listen carefully to what He IS saying, to the life His IS giving. To get off the track of grabbing from God and get into the relationship that will last for eternity. There is not much difference in grabbing from others for sex (when they are not giving=rape) than grabbing in an emotional frenzy from God, and missing Him altogether.

    And when we sit content before Him (like a weaned child Ps 131:2) then we are connected to the reality of our relationship with Him. Yes!

    Darin: I loved your perspective of 'porn-addiction.' I have preaching against this kind of thinking for better than 15 years, with very few listeners. They never see that the "Porn-Pimps" almost always are riddled with bullets of thier own making until they drop out of sight lost in an oblivion of questions about his or her character... The real truth is, the church is doing EXACTLY what the Israelites did. Placing Kings behind pulpits setting up mediators between them and God, and the Kings we have put in place are doing exactly what Samuel warned the people they would do... putting their own sons in office, charging the saints 10 percent of their income to build their own Kingdoms... not God's. God does not need the funds of man to do anything. Who's face is on the coin?

    Sex after 26 years of marriage is better than porn. There is something about time lived with a person that makes the whole relationship better. That also seems to be true of our journey with God, time spent together = greater joy in the relationship. Its just more fun. If you seek you will find even through the glitter, the lover of our souls. Left the Sunday meetings 6 months ago and have no desire to go back. Loving the journey of living each day with God without the hype or glitter. It is so refreshing. I also wonder what took me so long. First post and thanking all who speak on the podcasts.

    I am weary of the accusations of consumerism, included even here. I do not know of this ecstasy, corporate worship being an excerise in mimicry not sincerity for me. Yes, the music was excellent and the lyrics appropriate, but rarely of personal experience. Are there others like me who never sought to get high, but to honor God in truth? The consumer concept is part of current trend in redefining the modern church. It is ugly and hateful, used to justify continued disrespect of God's people, and license to grab what is regarded as Christianity in the US today. This lie is accepted without question because trendy man made programs and agendas are failing. I am free not because of shallow desire, but for lack of it.

    Yes, Jen....I wanted, dearly, to 'honor God in truth', and worked hard to close out what other's were doing during 'worship' so I could worship Him myself.
    I don't think Darin means that every single Christian believer who has been attending a church has also been swallowing everything that's been offered there. Most of us just didn't know what else to do and thought, for sure, we WERE doing what the L'rd wanted us to do by attending services, participating in 'worship', 'tithing', etc.
    I rest, knowing that G'd, all along, knew exactly where my heart was during all of the thirty years of attendence at 'church'. He knew where I was sincere, where I was simply uninformed, where I was misformed, and where I was, personally, wrong. He knows still...even in the 'wild'.

    Jenny

    Yes this is true. Last Sunday I went to a service where there was a 'famous' visiting speaker, expecting to hear great stuff and get that 'high' that had been advertised. Instead, the worship was a show, and then the message was just loads of Scriptures strung together with no actual content, points, or relevance to my day to day life or present condition. In fact, it ended up saying I was not good enough for God's healing - all my own fault that I'm not healed. When the person I was with said it was 'fantastic' I wondered if we'd heard the same message, but I think she didn't want to acknowledge that this famous teacher missed the mark. He was slick and knowledgable, but I felt no 'life' from him. Back to my times chatting to Father about all kinds of things that matter to me and Him.

    Paula

    Maybe you needed to be sure, Jenny...it's very hard, no kidding, to break away from something that is not only a tradition but also has given us a sense of being 'right' with G'd. This very personal sense of relationship with Him requires something of us that we actually haven't been taught...sort of an eye to eye relationship that is more threatening (no 'safety in crowds', you know) but, for me, is growing so dear, so profound.
    How to break the addiction, David? Cold turkey, for me...just one more controlling, professional'pastor'who deeply wronged my young people and then told me that it was MY fault (for having such searching, honest young people?)We left, not knowing that that was THE END. Twelve years have passed.I struggle, search, and study day to day:)Blessed Be He.

    Thank you Darin! I found your site through a friend yesterday and can not get enough. It is about time someone has the guts to tell the truth. For a while I was beginning to think I was the only one who felt like "church" and our relationship with God was more of a show than what it is supposed to be. I found myself practicing how to pray, when really all I wanted was to talk with God. I was feeling left out and foolish, so I quit (church) a couple of months ago and feel closer to Him than ever. Thank you.

    Darin's explanation here is exactly the reason I got out of the Pentecostal "Movement" because I learned early on that the emotional roller coaster you get... runs into that fast STOP at the end really fast. It's just not real. I love The Lord because He paid the price. It's just that crap DOES happens in this life....and HE doesn't create it or cause it to happen. But, He is there to comfort when it comes. The whole "victory over everything" is absolutely a lie....in this life. We are to walk amongst each other as Christ taught us...which is basically to just go around "doing good." If we could only manage just that and be "do gooders" to our families and friends...it would be so much easier to contend with. Have fun and yes GET EMOTIONAL at times....but don't take it so seriously.

    I cant say Ive ever been a part of a church that you are describing. I may have visited a few like them, but never went back after that first visit. I am gonna say I have to disagree with much, even though I think I see where you are coming from. First of all-Heb10:25 Let us not give up meeting together.. as some are in the habit of doing..let us encourage one another... I hope that you, reader are not calling it quits on God's church. There are Godly churches out there, but you do have to look! You also have to get in the word of God daily! 2 Tim 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. If you do this, you shouldn't have as big of a problem seeing the false church. Find a church whose focus is on the bible and only the bible! Beware, I found myself in a christian cult with similar viewpoints to this article. Don't ever commit to being normal, commit to God!Ps 28:7, Ja 1:2-8

    Darin Hufford

    Julie I appreciate your comment. I do have to wonder if you have had a real chance to think through everything you just said or if this is just the stuff you've been taught to say. You gave word for word the script that has been drilled into all our heads, but I wonder if you've ever really asked yourself what it is that you're saying. The Hebrews verse is simply talking about not secluding yourself away. You can have dinner with close friends who are believers and fulfill that verse. There are thousands of ways to "meet together" that don't include "church". You don't have to go to a building called "church". You call the system you are used too "God's church", yet there is no place in all of scripture where the church as you and I know it today is described. Scripture says that WE are the Church. Finally, you said to find a church whose focus is on the bible. WOW. Think about that for a moment. Not even Christ said such a thing in all His years of preaching and teaching.

I was a P&W leader in afew different churchs over the past 15 yrs and trurhfully had some incredible experiences in worship. Super Highs, but when it came to expressing Jesus to people outside the church all I could give them was religious garbage. Authority and submission and all that crap. When I began seeing The System for what it is I became disenchanted and lost many friends to what they called demonic delusion. I rthank you for your words brother, they are encouraging! Blessings

    Thanks for the excellant article, Darin. At the "old age" of 60 I woke up to the fact that the church I was in for over 40 years was not based upon the love of God but the fear of God. And they wrapped it all in a beautiful "package" and sold it to others through staged presentations called "evangelistic services." I am now 63 and still feel like I'm in a fog... a netherworld of disbelief. It's like I've been numbed to totally accepting the free and unbounded love of God. I know it. I understand it. But, because of some of the beliefs taught by my former church, it's just really hard to accept that God doesn't really expect anything of me but to follow my own path with Him daily. Not what a church says to do. Not what a pastor or priest or evangelist say to do. Not what a parent says to do. But what God says directly to me to do. Happily, I can say I'm on the right path. I'm just having a bit of problem with the new "shoes" I'm wearing. But I'm breaking them in every day!

    REGARDING JULIE: I understand what she is saying (from my earlier church life) and recognize the sincerity with which she writes. Unfortunately, she, like most fundamentalist Christians, doesn't know the history of the Bible, i.e. how the modern Bible was put together through the centuries. It has been proven through historical research that the very book she quotes from (2 Timothy) was not written by Paul but by an anonymous follower, written years after Paul's death. If Julie would study the history of the Bible as much as she studies the Bible itself she might find that Christianity has been tainted, it is much different that what Christ had in mind for us. Julie's thinking is like a church that puts signs up on their building saying "a First Century church for the 21st Century." I smile because the church of the First Century didn't even have a church building to meet in!! (HINT: read some of Bart Erhman's books.)

    Steve

    Agree with much of what was said. However, I have a few items that I disagree with. First off, God (Jesus) is not subject to the time/space, as we are. Therefore, He "is" reigning king. It's sounds like some of you come from a situation where this term has been misused. I have never heard it used exactly that way but it's still true. You can also say that He is still a carpenter. Either way though, He is LORD over all. Second, what Julie said about a church using scripture as their authority is true. Obviously all of of know that certain parts of scripture have been questioned. So what? If we don't take scripture as truth then where does our truth come from. I believe in the authenticity of scripture and if a small percentage of the bible has been altered then I'll leave it up to God to take care of that. The majority of what I know about Him comes from His Word. My thoughts and the thoughts of other men have proven to be unreliable. His "written" Word has not.

  36. Gravatar
    Darin Hufford

    Actually Steve, Jesus IS subject to time and space. He didn't go back to being omnipresent God after the resurrection. Jesus is STILL a man and is subject to time and space just as you and I are. Obviously, His Spirit isn't subject to time and space, but the MAN Jesus Christ IS.

    Your statement; "If we don't take scripture as truth then where does our truth come from?" The answer to that question is simple. The Holy Spirit!!! The anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.

    It is unfortunate that the majority of what you know about Him comes from the Bible. It wasn't supposed to be that way Steve. Your knowledge of Him should be coming from your personal experience with Him as you walk in relationship.

    At the very least I would suggest that you ask yourself what's missing. Why is it this way for you?

  37. Gravatar
    Darin Hufford

    Steve I'm not trying to come across as cutting or catty here. At the very least I want to challenge you to think outside of the way you've been brought up. If your only knowledge of Him comes from what you've read in the bible; that's pretty sad. It's sad that God can't reveal Himself to you and me apart from a book. What if either of us were illiterate? What if we were prisoners of war and our captures took our bible away? How is what we have today any better than what Moses had in the OT? It sounds like New Testament relationship is actually LESS than what Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Daniel, Jeremiah and all the other prophets of the OT had. Something MUST be missing if this is true.
