The Truth About Pornography

Here is the truth about pornography that your pastor may not tell you. The moment you look at a man or woman to lust, you are committing adultery. And what does it mean when you masturbate to it? This is taking the place of your current or future spouse. You are essentially making porn your substitute for having really sex with your spouse. This is so evil in the sight of God, and Jesus even spoke out against it. The Lord said, “ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27,28) A man or woman who is surfing the web, while looking at a specific video, and finishing the job with masturbation, is doing this in substitution for their spouse or another person. This very act of looking at porn is adultery, while masturbating to it, is taking this sin of adultery to the next level in God’s eyes. These are the types of people that are, A. willfully sinning against God, or, B. Are under the influence of an evil spirit and don’t feel a way out of the temptation. There is no other option. No wonder why people feel terrible after this wicked act is done.

Why isn’t this talked about in church? It is because of many reasons. A. The pastor is looking at porn too and would feel like a hypocrite bringing it up. B. The pastor doesn’t want to offend people, and keep people from not coming to their church. C. The topic was brought up before and it only led to people questioning the pastor and other church leaders afterward, and they are not prepared to bring it up again. There are other reasons, of course, but the truth of the matter is that many pastors are afraid of this topic of pornography and others. Are they doing a disservice by not bringing it up? Yes. Speaking of marriage, the writer of Hebrews said the following, “marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4) Paul also said, “now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness.” (Galatians 5:19) Following the desires of the flesh brings about sexual immorality. Therefore, “they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” (Galatians 5:24) If you say you are in Christ, then confess your sins to God, while allowing Him to help you crucify the lusts. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray for the sake of every man, woman, and child who is addicted to pornography. This sin is disgusting, but only those who have eyes to see can see this truth. Justifying this sin is terrible. I love the people I go to church with, but also know that many of them have a porn addiction. I see this trend in every church I’ve ever attended. God, many people are justifying their sins, instead of confessing them. I’ve wondered why this happens, and now I believe I know why. #1, These people don’t read the Bible daily. #2, They don’t pray often. #3, Their pastor doesn’t speak out against pornography, while in most cases it isn’t even brought up. So if nobody says anything, then no harm, no foul, these people may think. But then what happens when a street preacher calls them out for their drinking problems, pornography, sleeping around, and other things? Will they believe them, or think that they are crazy since their church pastor doesn’t say anything? If only these lost people could be led by the Holy Spirit and come to know Your truth about lust and adultery. Porn is very sinful, and I pray that these sinners will allow You to remove this lust from their flesh. I love You, Jesus. I trust in You, God. Amen.
