Tell me the beauty pageant industry doesn't have its' roots in soft
gluttony, lust. sloth, greed, pride, envy and anger. are the 7 deadly sins
Because they are only in the material world. Once you start with one the rest is
ready to join in.
It's important to be compassionate towards those who struggle against this
temptation. It's easy for women to speak out against it because most women
don't even experience the temptation. However many men(and women) do
experience the temptation and it can be a difficult battle for men(and women) to
conquer. Porn stimulates chemicals in the brain which means porn can be a
chemical addiction. Many people who have never faced this challenge assume
those who are struggling are just being selfish. However the reality is that
this temptation is a very difficult challenge and it takes time and effort to
overcome. It's important to be compassionate and charitable. For LDS
people I always recommend Preach My Gospel chapter 6, the "Charity"
section. Please don't judge others who are facing temptations you
haven't faced, fighting battles you've never fought, and are
experiencing struggles that you haven't experienced. I emphasize that
I'm not justifying those who engage in immoral behavior, but so many people
are scared to try to get help because of fear of embarrassment and being judged.
Let's help them by being charitable.
