1 John 2:15-17
WHAT IS YOUR OWN VIEW❓
Studies by the Barna Group and Covenant Eyes in the United States have revealed that over 40 million Americans are regular visitors to pornographic websites where they watch videos or pictures of naked men and women. An average visit is said to last between 29 seconds and 6 minutes. But more alarming at a global level is that there are around 42 million pornographic websites, which totals about 370 million pages of pornography for people to feast their eyes on.
The studies, extracts of which were published in an article by Luke Gibbons in Prophesy News Watch Magazine also disclosed that pornography increases marital infidelity rate by more than 300% and that 68% of church-going men and over 50% of Pastors view pornography on a regular basis.
You may say, “Wow! This is happening in America?” But, the truth is that although the numbers are not available in Nigeria, the trend is not too different across the world. Pornography is designed by the devil to poison, pollute and destroy the minds of millions of people. It is very very ADDICTIVE.
(1Corinthians 6:12; 2Peter 2:19)
and DESTRUCTIVE (Proverbs 6:25-28; Ezekiel 20:30; Ephesians 4:19). Lusting after other people in our minds, which is the essence of pornography, is offensive to God.
We must have it settled in our minds that the love of this world and the lust therefore will at best make us enemies of God. BECAREFUL!
Don’t allow your eyes lead you to sin
Give me strength, O Lord, to resist the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh so that I don’t make myself an enemy and a stranger to You in Jesus’ name.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
Ezra 6-8; 2 Timothy 3
