Masturbation miracle

I haven’t posted for a while.  I continue to help people struggling with porn and related problems with great success.  I recently asked a client to put in writing some of the experiences he has had working with me.  Here is his story:

Last Monday and today, Wednesday, I received the greatest hope that I have had in perhaps the last 50 years of my life. Here’s the story:

I have been visiting with Dr. Arden Compton, among other things, about my lust, sexual fantasies, and masturbation addiction. There were a number of things he pointed out to me and did with me: 1) My addiction is not me, but consists of a series of mistakes I have made throughout my life. 2) He reminded me of the book, “Return From Tomorrow” wherein some unclean spirits where seen in vision at a bar desperately trying to take a drink of alcohol but could not. However, when a sailor passed out drunk, an avenue opened up in him to allow these spirits to enter his body and experience the sensation of alcohol. Dr. Compton suggested that the same was with me, that it was not me that was lustful, but that there were unclean spirits using my body to experience their own lust. I could identify with that. Finally, 3) after the session he gave me a priesthood blessing that cast out the unclean spirits.

I had the rest of Monday and most of the day Tuesday in some of the greatest peace I can remember. Nevertheless, I wondered if it would last. Sure enough, on Tuesday night, being an assistant scoutmaster, I was at a Young Men’s/Young Women’s joint activity and one of the Young Women leaders was wearing clothes that exposed her cleavage. Driving home from the meeting I felt the old familiar physical/emotional drive to begin to experience lust. (I am not sure whether the cleavage triggered me, or if I was triggered by a conflict I was having in my mind with my wife.) Remembering what another recovering lust addict had told me two weeks earlier, I raised my right hand and said, “In the name of Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, and by the power of the Holy Priesthood, I command any evil or unclean spirits that want me to experience lust to depart from me.” I waited a minute or so, and sure enough, the drive for lust was gone.

I recall the exact days that lust became a part of my life. The first was when I was 14. It was the first time I had kissed a girl on a date. From then on, all I wanted to do on a date was to “make out.” The second was when I was 20 or so. I was with a girlfriend of 2 years or so. We had “made out” a lot, and sometimes talked of petting but never had. On night she put my hand on her breast. From that moment on all I wanted to do with her was to pet. I distinctly remember to this day that exact moment when petting became a drive with me, whereas before I would not seriously consider it. At some point I had her pet me and I had my first orgasism. From that time on I was off and on masturbating without the ability to stop. When I wanted to go on a mission a year later I was prohibited by the stake president until I stopped, which I could not do. When my bishop found out he gave me a priesthood blessing and the drive to masturbate stopped immediately, and did not return until much later when I again was in a position to allow myself to be influenced.

All these experiences convince me that for 50 years I have been influenced, not by my evil nature, but by an, or some, unclean spirits getting their highs through my body. I am also convinced that it doesn’t always have to be this way. Both Alcoholics Anonymous and Sexaholics Anonymous claim that once an addict, always an addict, and that all we get from the fellowship is a reprieve, one day at a time. Dr. Compton believes otherwise, and I tend to accept his premise. He believes that the power of Christ is enough for us to become completely cured, as long, of course, that we do not invite it back in by conscious choice. I am in hope that with enough effort, and the right guidance, that I will one day soon be no longer a sexaholic but just an ordinary human with defects of character, but not addictions. – Bob from Far West, Utah
