WASHINGTON – Real love is the "common denominator" among people who break free from pornography, says faith blogger and recovering porn addict Matt Aujero. Speaking for a summer Theology on Tap series Tuesday, Aujero recounted his own struggles with pornography as a college student and later as a husband. In those times, he said, the real love of God, his brothers in Christ and his wife rescued him.
Real love, Aujero told the crowd of young adults, is "something that porn can never ever measure up to" because real love sets higher expectations than settling for self-fulfillment. Porn, he explained, "prevents men and women from becoming the men and women they were meant to be for God, for their significant others and their loved ones."
