Boys and men today regularly indulge in pornography—even guys who profess to be Christians.1 By “indulging in pornography,” I mean that you sinfully allow yourself to enjoy the pleasure of printed or visual material that explicitly describes or displays sexual body parts or activity in order to stimulate erotic feelings.

David Prince – Ingratitude, Ethics, and Porn?

We tend to think about thankfulness as something we know we should have, especially in regard to the big blessings in life: family, spouse, friends, church, and so on, but it often remains a broad abstraction.

Samuel James – How Pornography Kills Ambition

Porn’s isolating emphasis on pleasing myself actually made me less myself. It’s a familiar pattern. An outgoing, enthusiastic guy begins slowly but surely to change.

Liz Wann – A Letter to My Sons About Pornography

My Dear Sons, The eye beholds much good and evil in this life. Beholding leads to becoming. What we continually put before our eyes and minds will shape and determine who we are. Images either tell the truth or lie, but they all speak. On top of this, our natural eyes are lustful things not …

Jimmy Needham – The Real Battle for Sexual Purity

I used to look at pornography nearly every day for a decade. But for the past twelve years, by God’s grace, I have not visited a single porn site.

Russell Moore – Why Porn Kills Sex

This week’s TIME magazine features a cover story on a new initiative against Internet pornography. These anti-porn activists, though, aren’t the caricatured pursed-lip moralists. They are instead young men who say that pornography has compromised their ability to function sexually in real life. The cover struck a chord with me because I’ve seen a similar …
