Do you feel outraged or uncomfortable when a conversation comes up about pornography within your fellowship? Are you aware that this is the biggest threat that is facing most marriages within our fellowships today? This has now become the main reason for divorce in Christian marriages. We would rather discuss the topic of gay marriages than deal with the fallout that porn is causing in Christian marriages.
Some people actually think that this problem is only happening in the denomination down the road or across the other side of the world. Or perhaps they believe if they leave it alone that it might just go away by itself. It’s outrageous to think that there are millions of believers caught under the spell of pornography with so little being done to help.
So many Christians are totally oblivious to the spreading epidemic of pornography, but they shouldn’t be, since it occurs in the church as much as the world. God’s Church today is being raped and pillaged by an invasion of impurity.
Pornography and sexual impurity are at epidemic levels amongst those who call themselves believers of Jesus Christ. Is it any wonder that Satan is mocking the body of Christ? All this destruction is happening during a time of unparalleled church growth. So while mass evangelism is bringing people in through the front door, the enemy is dragging them out the back door through impurity and sexual immorality.
But we shouldn’t be surprised – Scripture has pre-warned us about this invasion in the last days. In Rev 12:15 The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman to sweep her away with a flood. Pornography, lust and adultery has probably been responsible for bringing down more church leaders, missionaries, godly men and women than anything else. How many men were once called to extraordinary ministries, but have lost their anointing and quenched the spirit or forfeited their inheritance in heaven for another lust filled hour of pornography or worse?
This problem can’t go on any longer unnoticed and unchecked – there needs to be greater awareness to the struggles that men and women are facing and keeping in secret.
