Young and old have been given a sound warning to stay away from pornography and masturbation as it could affect the brain and lead one astray.
This was revealed by the Rev. Paul Ojoh, the Resident Pastor, Shepherd House Assembly International, Jos further hinted that pornography and masturbation could affect the brain and impede productivity. “Those twin evils could hurt the brain and impede productivity because of the cumulative negative effects of addiction to them,” he stated on Sunday in Jos, during a sermon at the Youth Conference of the Church.
In the sermon titled: ‘Dealing with Forces of Addiction’, he noted that a high percentage of youths suffer addiction mostly to pornography and masturbation.
“Research has shown that more than 50 per cent of youths are addicted to pornography, while 60 to 90 per cent of adolescent boys and 40 per cent of adolescent girls are addicted to masturbation. 
 
“These addictions are sins against nature; the right hemisphere of the brain functions in facilitating creativity and inventions and a portion of the brain called ‘cingulate codex, is responsible for moral and ethical decisions. “So, when you feed your brain with masturbation and pornographic materials, it impedes your productivity and affects the efficiency of your brain which is designed to perform the task of creativity and invention,’’ he explained.
According to him, he said those battling the habit should not suffer alone as they need divine intervention to see them through.
“Addicts of masturbation must admit that they cannot overcome their battles alone. They must accept that it is only possible with the divine intervention of God. 
“It is important you avoid anything that triggers such addictions; these are things that you see and read that pollute your mind towards it like movies, magazines and places 
 
“You must renew your mind and feed it with the word of God to fight addictive materials that have occupied the space of your mind. 
 
“Addicts should also seek counsel from people of integrity, who will counsel them and monitor them through their recovery process,’’ he said.
He said that addictions could also enslave a man, put him in bondage and regulate the lifestyle of the affected person or persons, which could subjugate potentialities. The clergy, who defined addiction as a repeated habit which becomes a lifestyle, mentioned other negative addictions to include the internet, food, s*x, alcohol, amongst others. The youth conference featured comedies, drama plays and special renditions from the Choir.

Kemi Olunloyo reveals how she got married in prison

I GOT MARRIED LIKE I PROMISED TO IN 2017. Yes I got MARRIED to someone in prison. This is my FIRST SUNDAY away from #PHMax prison. I lean towards Catholism and Islam which I grew up in and attended the Catholic church inside the prison. There are up to 4 churches and a mosque in there plus the Pentecostal churches that visits inmates weekly and bring us the word of God and provisions.

I became a ‘bible reader’. The same bible I ripped in 2016 as being a “storybook” of fiction may have been real. I studied what the prophets of old said. It seems unreal but these things likely happened.

But why are we commercializing religion and brainwashing the congregation? I will become a Woman of God very soon and use my prophetic abilities and bible story knowledge to apply wisdom to your lives. Prison always make all inmates spiritual…right? Hell No! Jesus shows up in the most expected places. Unlike the enemies of the #freethesheeple movement who are so Christ-obsessed? I did not find #Jesus.

He found me! Jesus is my first and new HUSBAND! I have never been married or divorced in my entire life. This will be an everlasting relationship. Say Alleluia! May God forgive your sins too! Don’t be obsessed with religion. Minimize! #HAPPYSUNDAY to all of you and my former inmates. My seat in the front row near our Catholic female leader and 76yo #MamaOwerri will be empty today as Father tells the church about my release last week.”
