by Theophan, The Uncreated Light
Lust, especially in pornography, is a plague that is decimating both young men and women across the world. Most know how it rewires your brain, makes you docile, and all the other negative side-effects of such a self-destructive practice, but want more tangible means of how to fight back against it. I am not an expert, nor do I claim to be. I can only share what has aided me in my own struggles against such a passion. May my words be beneficial and guided in truth. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“The passion of lust wars against everyone, and at the toll-houses the demon of lust will boast before all the princes of darkness that he provided hell with more spoils than all the rest. Be patient, and implore divine help!”St. Anatoly of Optina
