Hardcore Porn. The Fresh Alternative To Rape? Sometimes Being “Better” Isn’t What’s Best

Upon asking someone how they are doing, I got the response, “I’m better than I used to be.” On the surface, that sounds great, right? I mean, it beats being the same, or being worse. It’s always good to be better, no doubt about that. What’s not good is settling for a what’s still not good, just because it’s better. Make sense? You see, we have the means and the tools to be the BEST! We never have to settle for just being better. Better is NOT best!

All our lives, and I mean ALL our lives, we are a work in progress. God will continually grow us until Christ returns. I know I, personally, miss out on tons of growth opportunities due to fear, pride, stubbornness, or laziness. I’ve nowhere near tapped into the power I have in Christ! I’m assuming not many people, if any, ever do and how sad is that? What a difference we could make in this world if we did!

I don’t believe God wants us to settle for “better” when we can be best! Look at it this way. What if you asked a rapist how they were doing, and their answer was,”Oh, I’m way better than I used to be! I’ve found a fresh, new alternative to raping! I now only watch eight to ten hours of hardcore, rape porn a day, but at least I’m not raping anyone!” Would you give him a gold star, or an ‘atta boy’?! Um…NO! And why not? I mean, watching hardcore, rape porn isn’t anywhere near as bad as actually raping, right? Technically, maybe not, but what that tells us is, he doesn’t REALLY want to change. In fact, he hasn’t changed his mindset at all! He’s just trying to make himself feel better by doing what he considers to be the lesser offense; which essentially means what he’s REALLY saying is, “At least I’m not raping anyone YET!” Most likely he will rape again!

Yes, being better can be good, but not when all you’re doing is settling for a watered down version of what you used to be. Better is good, when you’re making steps toward being different, and changing your mindset, not just doing a lesser of the evils. In reality, the only real “better” we can achieve is through Jesus! His “better” is better than any “better” we can achieve on our own! Through Jesus, we don’t have to settle for just being better! Through Jesus, we can be the best! Left to our own devices we aren’t good, but we can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us! Philippians 4:13. God’s Word says to forget the things that happened in the past. Do not keep on thinking about them. God is about to do something new. It is beginning to happen even now. Don’t you see it coming?
God is going to make a way for you to go through the desert. He will make streams of water in the dry and empty land. Isaiah 43:18-19 That’s because anyone who believes in Christ is a new creation (not just a “better” version). The old is gone! The new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Don’t settle for just being better! Turn to Christ and allow Him to make you the best YOU you can be! The YOU He created you to be!
