So
What
Is
Pornography?
Wrong
With
Introduction:
Our
society
is
permeated with pornography in
movies, T.V., theater, art, books, and
magazines. The internet, radio and
“900” phone lines are additional
media used to traffic this and it
seems to be getting worse.
Definition: “Porno” comes from the
Greek “porneia”
which means
fornication or illicit sexual activity.
“Graphy” is relating to written words
or pictorial representation. Thus
“pornography” is a graphic depiction
of of something sexual.
I) The Media: a) Magazines - Playboy,
Playgirl, & Penthouse, etc. are well
known, but there are thousands
more, Even Victoria’s Secret catalog
comes close. b) Books - “Adult”
books, romance novels, other fiction
stories, etc. frequently describe “love”
scenes. c) Movies - Even “G” and
“PG” movies sometimes have sexual
inneuendo. d) T.V. - Many shows,;
even comedies like Seinfeld and Will
and Grace will joke about sexual
matters. e. Commercials - eg. Sex
appeal is everywhere and now there
are Viagra ads. f) Internet - websites
galore are XXX.
II) The Legality: A few laws may
prohibit it, but most simply restrict
and regulate it. Our rights as citizens
to oppose such can be exercised as
you will, but hope of elimination
though is unlikely. The best we can
do is attempt to make small
changes, one heart at a time.
III) So What Is Wrong With It?
1. Matthew 5:28-29 - It is sinful.
2. II Samuel 11:2 - It can lead to other
sins.
3. Mark 7:18-23 - It defiles our heart
and vice versa.
4. II Peter 2:14 - It is potentially
addictive.
5. Proverbs 6:24-26 - It may
eventually destroy us.
6. I John 2:15-17 - It is of the world,
and robs us of the love of God.
7. Revelation 16:15 - Public
nakedness is a shame.
8. Romans 1:32 - It is receiving
pleasure from or approving of
the sin of others.
9. It sells sex and equals prostitution.
10. Cheapens and degrades women
and the beauty of sexuality.
11. Contributes to promiscuity,
illegitimacy and abortion.
IV) How Do We Overcome It?
a. Avoid it when and where possible Proverbs 4:14-15, 25
b. Make a vow to yourself - Job
31:1,9-10
c. Get married - I Corinthians 7:2
d. Be satisfied by your spouse - I
Corinthians 7:3-5; Proverbs
5:15-19; Song of Solomon
5:10-16; 7:1-9
e. Mental self-discipline II Corinthians 10:3-5
f. Think on these things - Philippians
4:8
g. Walk in the Spirit - Galatians 5:16
Conclusion: Beware of the sin of
pornography...whether hardcore or
soft.
