I don’t believe in censorship and trust me, I hate most of what I see and hear these days.. But if we are going to censor, why isn’t pornography among the top of the list of most dangerous material? With the amount of sexual brokenness in our world, why is this still okay? Why is it okay to make it so easily accessible for our children to view? Why doesn’t anyone talk about this?
We promote movies and television that glorify adultery and alternate lifestyles; everything that runs contrary to the word of God. (Sorry folks, if you claim to follow Jesus then the Word of God has to be your platform, not an ever changing culture. And, so you know, the same issues we see in our culture today have been happening since the beginning of time).
At least 10 percent of church going men suffer with sex addictions and the percentage is extremely higher for those that don’t. 55 percent of folks suffer from some sort of sexual brokenness that ultimately damages themselves, their children and their families. And in many cases, these issues began with the dirty seed of pornography. The ripple effect is generational, and yet the silence is loud. We don’t want to talk about that harmful material. Nope, we’d rather not bring that up at the risk of offending people or violate “their rights”.
I hate the subtle innuendos that have reduced sex to nothing. I hate the raunchy lyrics to music that play in our head teaching that sex is something other than what it was designed to be. I hate the dirtiness and filth on television and the movies that has desensitized us in what a Holy lifestyle looks like. I hate the damage it has done to many folks and the blaze of destruction it has caused. And yes, for my mental health and that of my boys, those were abandoned long ago.
People don’t give enough credit to the power of the mind, garbage in equals garbage out. The slow decay and erosion of the mind begins when you embrace and consume the anti-God ideologies of corruption. That is why Paul says over and over guard your mind.
Pornography, most of Hollywood, most music industries and this anti-God, or create your own God culture has influenced our men and women in the worst of ways, but, nobody will talk about it. We live in this “MeToo” world that still glorifies an industry bent on reducing women – and now men and children – to objects of sexual pleasure. When will that be censored?
I hate pornography and I hate the damage and confusion on so many because of painful sexual brokenness. So, if we are going down the dangerous, Nazi road of censorship, let’s begin with what really should be censored.
