Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor—not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways. Never harm or cheat a Christian brother in this matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before. God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives. Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you. —I Thessalonians 4:1-8
http://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/9-things-you-should-know-about-pornography-and-the-brain The world system headed up by Satan (II Corinthians 4:4) is anti-God and will seek to go contrary to God’s Word and design. Traditional marriage is under attack, but I am sure that if we were able to clearly tack the factors that have brought us to this point we would find that pornography has been a great factor. http://national.deseretnews.com/article/3381/pornography-addiction-another-reason-for-the-us-marriage-decline.html Then there is the factor of pornography in crime— “I’ve investigated somewhere between 750 and a thousand cases, but was I looking for it all the time? No, I wasn’t. But my estimation would be that pornography is expected by the police in those cases. It’s expected that they [the suspects] read pornographic literature and magazines. Anywhere between 60 and 80 percent of the cases, if I were looking for it, I would have found it. But realistically, well over 80 percent” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1218097/posts
In the United States and I am sure in other parts of the world as well, the sexualization of our culture is one factor leading to its breakdown.
“Another sign of the end of the civilization is the prevalence of base and immoral entertainment. In its last days, Rome had become a society with an insatiable appetite for debauchery and immorality. Perverted entertainment translated into perverted speech and behavior. The Roman society began to accept and encourage open homosexuality. The people turned away from God and forgot his commandments and precepts, and Rome crumbled. And today, our culture has begun to embrace the same kind of entertainment. In music, a song eulogizing a murdered rap star has held the top spot on the charts for two months. Many of our movies now feature heroes who triumph by copying the vises of the villains. Television has scuttled its family hour for more dramas and sitcoms that treat perversion as normal behavior. Wholesome entertainment is becoming a forgotten relic.” http://www.clintonmemoriallibrary.com/clint_change.html
There is a great immoral push in the American education to expose young children to sex as in other countries http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/spring-fever/. Our children are going to be sexualized on a large scale… by adults! This is utterly disgusting!
Dear Father, please intervene somehow and protect children You love so dearly!
