@ ThinkmanI think you're right that you get what you focus on but
some things don't go away because you ignore them. For example: termites, house
fires, cancer, high blood pressure. I think pornography has much more in common
with a disease than it does poverty. I don't worry so much about those addicted
to pornography who are open and know they have a problem and are working through
it as those who have been addicted but find nothing wrong with it because they
never hear anything bad about it.
What you focus on determines what you will see more of in your life. If you
focus your thoughts, words and actions on health then you will be more healthy.
If you focus on success, then you will succeed more in what you do than fail.
If you focus on sickness or poverty, then you will get more of those things and
if you focus on "fighting" pornography, guess what? You will continue
to see more pornography to fight against.The obsession that the LDS
church and the LDS culture has with fighting porn only begets more porn in the
lives of its members. I'm not saying the LDS church nor its members should
embrace porn but rather, the incessant focus on porn by the members, the general
conference talks, the stake conference and other talks and forums and
conferences held on porn I think, to some degree, actually perpetuate the
viewing of and seeking of more porn by LDS church members.How about
the LDS church and its members leave porn alone and see if that by doing so,
fewer of its members will actually be viewing it and fewer marriages will be
threatened? Just a thought.
Another great resource is the Church's LDS Family Service Addiction Recovery
Program. There are even groups specifically for pornography addiction.
