Victimless Crime?

Description

Here is a lie you often hear: pornography is a victimless sin. The fact is, looking at porn is an incredibly addictive behavior, and our communities are saturated with the tears of devastated victims.

“But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” - Matthew 5:28

Here is a lie you often hear: pornography is a victimless sin. The fact is that looking at porn is an incredibly addictive behavior. It has even been called the crack cocaine of sexual addiction; dabbling in porn carries the same dangers as dabbling in cocaine or heroin. It has the same kind of addictive draw, especially in a man’s life. And this addiction can have a devastating effect on both the men who engage in it and their families.

Pornography cheapens what God created as a beautiful pleasure to be enjoyed between a husband and wife. It creates a mind-set where a woman is seen as an object to be used, like a bottle of booze. When it’s used up, throw it away; discard it. Find another one!

Porn creates a fantasy world—totally out of touch with reality—that can cause a sense of dissatisfaction within a man’s marriage. There’s just no way a wife can compete with this fantasy world. And the effect of the divorces caused by porn addiction is catastrophic—to men, their wives and children, their extended families, and society as a whole.

Victimless crime? Not on your life. Our communities are saturated with the tears of devastated victims.
