During a sermon at the Youth Conference of the Church, on Sunday in Jos,  Titled: ‘Dealing with Forces of Addiction’. Paul Ojoh, the Resident Pastor, Shepherd House Assembly International, Jos said 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,” 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, adding that ” 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 ‘cingulated codex, is responsible for moral and ethical decisions, and ” 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 Ojoh said that the remedy to such addictions was acknowledging that addicts could not fight the battle of emancipation alone, and therefore required divine intervention to see them through, and ” 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.
