Complementary to my earlier post, The Case Against Pornography, I commend the latest from AlbertMohler,com, How Pornography Works: It Hijacks the Male Brain. This is a book review of Wired for Intimacy by William Struthers of Wheaton College.
Why such an emphasis on pornography?
I’ve seen the consuming devastation of it in men’s lives for decades, but in the past ten years, through the internet, with 24 hour access to hand held devices, it seems to be overwhelming the male population and making major inroads among women as well.
Morgan Bennett says that “current pornography use is around 87 percent for young adult males and 31 percent for young adult females, and roughly 50–60 percent of both genders find pornography use ‘acceptable’.”
Christians are not unaffected and the consequences for damaged relationships, broken marriages, general dysfunction, and alienation from God are incalculable. I’m simply sounding the alarm that accompanies a similar culture wide decline in the biblical times of the Judges.
Consider it, take counsel, and speak up! Judges 19:30 NASB
How will you battle this killer enemy? How will you protect your children? How will you defend the defenseless among us? Ostrich time must end!
