Porn, Prostitute and Pastor

 

Porn, prostitute and pastor on the same verse! Are you kidding me? Check out these stats, 

How often are you exposed to any kind of pornography?

And another,

Pornography Statistics

One recent poll shows that 51% of all ministers admit to having at least occasionally looked at pornography on the net, and some 37% admit to having a problem with this matter.

The people of the Church have suffered from this terrible sin. With such a growing epidemic, our people need help. On one side of the fence, churches are dealing with racial reconciliation, poverty, discrimination, etc. (I think there is a place for that). But, what about personal holiness? I suspect that the general aspect of dealing and repenting of racial reconciliation, poverty, etc are easier than dealing with porn.

We are living in an age where one click will bring you into the forbidden place. Is it hard to overcome? I think it is impossible to overcome but with God nothing is impossible.

If you have a problem, seek help. For the sake of your salvation, congregation, family and children. And not forgetting that you are also incuring the wrath of God. 

  • Galatians 2:19-20 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
