Fighting Pornography Addiction

In an address entitled “A Tragic Evil among Us,” then-Church President Gordon B. Hinckley taught, “[Pornography] is like a raging storm, destroying individuals and families, utterly ruining what was once wholesome and beautiful.” While popular culture tries to peddle pornography as a harmless pastime, prophets and apostles have repeatedly warned of its damaging and addictive effects on individuals, families, and society.

Resources to Learn More

Like all evil, pornography thrives in darkness and in secret. Those who struggle with the effects of pornography often feel alone and without hope. Fortunately, the Atonement of Jesus Christ offers hope and healing from the effects of pornography. If you or anyone you know is struggling with pornography, here are some powerful resources to consider.

  • Overcoming Pornography provides support for individuals and family members through the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  • The Addiction Recovery Program offers a 12-step program that incorporates gospel principles in overcoming addictions like pornography.

  • Fight the New Drug is a cutting-edge movement to educate individuals and communities on the harmful effects of pornography.

The gospel of Jesus Christ provides answers to this and other complex issues of today. We invite you to meet with the missionaries to learn more.
