God and Porn

According to the book of Genesis, God created man in His own image and likeness. From this verse, we can concur that the image of every man and woman is pure and holy. Contrastingly, in pornographic materials, men and women are portrayed as sexually craved immoral beings with no regards to emotions or spirituality. This is one demonic deception. This is an entirely wicked portrayal of sex because it does not depict any of God’s purposes for sex.

It is made clear in the Holy Bible that sex is a gift from God to be shared only within the sanctity of marriage. As described from the book of Ephesians, this is God’s way of combining a man and a woman into a single flesh, establishing mutual intimacy and pleasure between each other. Another of God’s primary purpose for sex is pro-creation. As He said in Genesis, “Be fruitful. Go forth and multiply. Fill the earth with your kind and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves.” These things are the basic principles of sex yet these are being disregarded by pornography, where men and women are being explicitly illustrated as lustful creatures who engage in various sexual activities outside of marriage and outside of the norms.

In the gospel of Matthew, God said that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Isn’t lustful intent to a woman everything we gain in pornography?!? Unfortunately, it is. Watching pornography will increase our dirty desires to have sex with women, not just to one but to many. This leads us to a life of sexual immorality. Therefore, in the eyes of God, watching pornography is a sin we commit in our hearts, contaminating the very foundations of our faith.

But as God always reminds us, all evil are conquerable and all temptations are resistible. We just have to surrender our hearts to the might of His hand. So if you are being tempted by the sinfulness of pornography, do not easily give in. Lift your soul to God through prayer and He will guide you through. Read the Scriptures and go to churches or congregations near you. Approach your priests or pastors or ministry members and be humble enough to share to them the temptation battle happening inside of you. God and His community of workers will surely welcome you with open arms. And finally, embrace what God has destined for you and your sexuality. Embrace the idea that sex is sacred, a clean and pure act for marriage intimacy and pro-creation.
