Kathy Howard makes a great point in her article. These stories mock God and conjure up images that are offensive to Him. What place does that leave for Jesus in our minds? Very little. Once we open that door, Satan puts a wedge there so he can push it open wider, and that leads to desensitization of our conscience. What's the harm in that? We never realize how potent that drug is until we try to kick a habit we do not believe is a habit.
A friend of mine wrote on breaking a sinful habit. It is well worth the read, and if you don't have time to read it today, copy/paste it and read it when you do have time.
