Christian author and speaker Brittni De La Mora, who famously left the porn industry behind to become a Christian, has stressed the importance of having a pure thought life when it comes to combating lust.

“When I got out of the porn industry I battled with a lot of lustful thoughts. I battled with the temptations of wanting to go back and use different kinds of drugs,” Brittni shared on an episode of “Let’s Talk Purity,” a show she co-hosts alongside her husband, Richard De La Mora. “I had a lot that was on my mind, that first and foremost renewing gave me the strength to then go and cast things down.”

“So if a lustful thought would play through my mind, whether I was driving in my car sitting in church, I would instantly — this was the dialect in my mind — I would say, ‘I rebuke that thought in the name of Jesus, I am not going to think like that.’ And then I would say a prayer: ‘Father, I’m sorry that I allowed that thought in my mind. Please forgive me for thinking that way and purify my mind, Lord. Help me to not think like that anymore.’”
