I want to ask you a few questions and have you reflect on a couple scriptures.
Do your actions hurt anyone? Does the fun that you have leave scars in the lives of others? Is hurting someone wrong? Does hurting someone's feelings take it wrong?
Numbers 5:5-6 (NIrV) - The Lord said to Moses, "Speak to the people of Israel. Say to them, 'Suppose a man or woman does something wrong to someone else. Then that person is not being faithful to the Lord. People like that are guilty.
Where would you say the pornography and fantasies that hurt your relationships land in this scheme of things? What are you willing to do?
Verse seven in Numbers contains a simple first step. You must admit, or confess, you have committed a sin. Confess to God that your sin is hurting yourself and others. Ask Him to forgive you. Confessing it to those you have hurt and asking for their forgiveness might help as well.
