Have you ever expressed disapproval of pornography and been met with a blank look? After a generation of industry marketing, many accept porn as a healthy part of sexuality.
So Christians may be relieved that the dangers of pornography are receiving greater scrutiny and awareness. Recent criticism has focused on its connection with the devastation of sex trafficking, or the impact of sexual addiction.
The topic absent from the public forum is sin. Using porn has a corrosive effect. It not only harms a marriage, but our relationship with God. Even if no sex trafficking is involved and no addiction occurs, something is dying in the human heart. The prayer, “Create in me a pure heart, O God,” can become empty words. Guilt and shame take over.
Conquerors through Christ continues to prepare resources to help Christians reject, resist, and recover from porn. An excellent Bible study, “Bought at a Price,” and e-books for parenting are available on their website. New materials for high school students are in production.
It’s not enough to say that porn is wrong. God has provided a path to return to him through forgiveness in Christ and the power of his Spirit. Let’s get the message out!
