Protect yourself

Live in such perfect accord with The Christ and dwell so continually in the thoughts of love, purity and unselfishness, and occupy your mind so fully with earnest thoughts of higher things and with the study on these subjects that all obscene thoughts or suggestions will be repugnant to you. You will then turn from them as naturally as you would step over a puddle of mud in the street. We cannot be absorbed in two things at once, or as Jesus said, we cannot serve two masters, for we will hold to the one and despise the other. Therefore, if the general trend of your mind and desire is for higher things do not be distressed if the thing you despised occasionally sweeps over your consciousness, for if you do not serve it, it can never become your master. If Christ is your Master you will so despise the evil that it can and will make little impression upon your mind.
