Day 21: Love Connection
It’s Day 21 of the Porn-Free Challenge, and today we are talking about how we need to replace porn with genuine intimacy.
God built us for relationships. Created in His image, we are relational beings just as He is relational. Porn creates a parody of this by playing on our desires—not just our desire for sexual pleasure, but also for connection.
In order to make a lasting break from pornography, we need to intentionally pursue intimacy with God and others.

If you’re single, read, “Singleness and Longing: Why Porn Isn’t the Cure.” Here you’ll learn about how to pursue intimacy with others in a God-honoring way.
