WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT PORNOGRAPHY
As a starting point, Playboy magazine was founded in 1953. Hugh Hefner opened the first Playboy Club in 1960. Then Larry Flynt came along with many others and guess where we are today! Pornography (porn) is everywhere today—magazines, billboards, television, commercials, internet, movies, DVD’s and more. The U.S. is the top producer of porn DVD’s and web material with Germany second. Porn has grown to a $12-$13 billion-a-year industry with over 4.2 million sites in the U.S. Sex clubs are prevalent in the U.S. and public live sex occurs in Europe.
It is estimated that 70% of men and 30% of women view online porn regularly. And sad to say the average age of first internet porn exposure is eleven year’s old.
Porn is addicting. Say no to porn. Flee from pornography. What does God say straight from the Bible.
Pornography is a sin—abstain. I Thess 5:22 and Gal 5:19
If married, porn is adultery; if single porn is fornication. Matt 5:28
Pornography leads to death. James 1:14-15
Pornography is demonic. I John 2:16 and Eph 5:11-12
Flee from pornography. I Corinth 6:18
You can be free from pornography use. I Corinth 10:13. The journey away from porn can be reduced to three simple principles—repentance, discipleship and accountability. The single biggest factor in combating porn addiction is to come under the authority of Jesus Christ. Make Him your Lord and Saviour.
