Hard Core Quitting

        In Corinthians, Paul says, “Our weapons are mighty for pulling down strongholds.” He says we can “Cast down imaginations and strongholds.”

        Very few people reading this have enough motivation to overcome a stronghold. But, the great news is, it is very easy to acquire this motivation. The problem is, it is very hard “To do” what we need to do to acquire this motivation. Here is a story:

        Jonny quit porn, but then he read 1st Corinthians 6. He is now free of what Paul said about porn – “Fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of heaven.” But, he is very upset upon reading, “The covetous will not inherit the kingdom of heaven.” You see, his life revolves around money, accumulating, increasing, and financial growth. His family and friends take great pride in financial success.

        Jonny’s problem is, he prayed a bunch to quit porn, he studied the scriptures a bunch to quit porn, now he is 100% aware that God’s way is best regarding quitting porn. His life is now way better.

        But how can God’s way be better regarding this, “Quit chasing money in excess.” That is completely unAmerican.

        Is it possible God is right about this? Should Jonny put this verse, “The covetous will not inherit the kingdom of heaven,” in his phone and read it every hour this month?

        End of story.

        Every person reading this has a verse from 1st Corinthians 6 that upsets them to the core. If we want to pull down the stronghold the fastest we need to use the most mighty weapon.

        The verses in this chapter are very scary, but if you quote the verse that applies most to your situation every hour, you will be using a most mighty weapon.

        Here are the scary verses from 1st Corinthians 6:

        9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

        10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

        Our past sins are washed away. So do these verses apply to what we do from now on? No one knows exactly for sure. Far too many people give their opinion. All anyone knows for sure is that God does judge us someday and he will judge us fairly. Because of that, we must “Know” these verses inside and out.

        Finally, these verses lead to joy. I have spent countless hours trying to prove that sin leads to joy. Um, wrong, sin leads to cheap thrills, and a lot of depression and hopelessness.

        Today, this week, and this month, consider quoting the verse that applies most to your situation every hour. You will be using a most mighty weapon.
