If you can get out of bed each day, switch on tv or radio, perhaps read a newspaper or magazine, travel to work each week without noticing the sexualised advertising, the provocative fashion that everybody is wearing, you either live and work in outer Mongolia as a goat herder or you have become so desensitised that you aren’t effected by your surroundings and environment any more.
– Caving into a sex crazed society –
Satan is described in Ephesians 2 2 as the Prince of the power of the air and because of this, we live in a conductive atmosphere which allows him to control the air waves which influences a lost and ungodly generation with sexual immorality through satellite, TV, films, porn-pop music channels, sleazy literature, provocative advertising, etc. Sexual pressure on teens and young adults is at an all-time high. Their friends and peers are giving into the pressures of a sex crazed society that mocks biblical holiness and sexual purity surrounded by an ungodly culture that accepts and even glorifies casual sex. Today’s teens and single adults are wrestling with sexual decisions that previous generations never had to face. God demands sexual purity, He knows the devastating consequences of sin. STDs, underage/unwanted pregnancies, abortions, rise in mouth and throat cancer (HPV) in young adults due to oral sex, experimenting with same sex, ungodly soul ties and so on.
The youth of today, don’t have to take the same path as we once had; they don’t have to run the gauntlet of going into the news agents to purchase a dirty mag or asking at the local video store for the blue movie list. In fact they don’t have to leave their bedrooms as it’s all delivered and packaged to the way they want it every perversion available at the click of a button. You have to be 18 to get into a strip club to see a woman peel her clothes off but an 8 yr old can log in to some of the worst, obscene pornography for free where there are no ID checks, bouncers or police raids to put up with.
On top of this, the fashion that girls are now forced into wearing just feel acceptable. What guy can go out now and not be bombarded with navels, cleavages, low cut blouses, tight clothing or miniskirts. Porn has also hit the high street fashion scene, clothes that years earlier would have been worn by prostitutes, now a generation of young girls have been seduced into cultivating an image that is sexual and sleazy. Jaded and rejected young girls have come to understand the more revealing their clothes, the more they will be noticed and to be honest, less respected. Unfortunately some girls will settle for bad love rather than no love. If you are starving, bad bread is better than no bread, right?
In this environment we shouldn’t be surprised that promiscuity has risen in younger children, even in the church are women dressing to be attractive or dressing to attract?
Proverbs 27: 7 puts it like this: One who is full loathes honey, but to the one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.
1 Peter 1v16 Be Holy, for I am Holy. Is God setting us up here for failure? Think about this, the idea of living a holy life in such an unholy environment can seem like a cruel joke, but it isn’t totally unattainable, God doesn’t set standards that we can’t reach, He knows all about our daily struggles and what we are facing. He hasn’t suddenly gone quiet on this issue or turned His back on us.
– Pornography the ideal teacher –
Just consider how far our own society has slipped right under our noses through the deception of sexual freedom: Take a moment here to reflect the seriousness of this next statement from Gail Dines and feel how the Holy Spirit impact’s you through it.
“Never before have we brought up a generation of young boys and girls on Hard Core Pornography.”
This is no joke guys. Secular Counsellors, therapists, psychologists are all sitting back in absolute fear because they have also recognised this problem; they know all about the progressive downward spiral of pornography and the destruction that is headed this way. In fact right now we are all living in the biggest social experiment ever and nobody has an answer on how to deal with this spreading epidemic.
Forget about the traditional porno films with the bad story lines and awful acting. This is Gonzo and Scat pornography were women are treated and humiliated worse than animals. This is the hardest, most extreme degrading hardcore pornography available today. This is total body punishing sex and this is the entry level. So if pornography spirals out of control what is the pit that awaits them?
Our young men’s sexuality has been hijacked. Will they understand God’s heart on this matter and what the bible has to say? Will they be able to give and receive love, treat and view their wives and girlfriends with respect? Through porn they will learn how women should look, how women should act and behave and how women should perform to keep them happy. Always willing, always available and that women always want sex and that sex has nothing to do with intimacy and relationships and every sexual encounter should end up with a money shot to the face,
It’s not good news for the girls who they are going to date or end up marrying. Because the men of tomorrow are being fed today on a diet of toxic porn, they will probably introduce them to ungodly sex? They will probably insist that they defile or degrade themselves, be physically, verbally, emotionally and spiritually abused and perform graphic hard-core porn sex instead of the safe, loving, intimate sex that God created for marriage. Which Christian parents can sit back and let this happen and do nothing about it? With the high percentage of Christian men struggling with pornography today, chances are that our daughters could end up living this life in silence, fear or even worse, thinking that it’s totally normal.
– mummy porn –
The internet has become the ideal delivery system while Pornography has become the ideal teacher. That emphasises the absence of communication and openly exploits themes of humiliation promoting rape, child molestation, paedophilia prostitution, domestic violence, verbal abuse, assault, sexual harassment, sexual violence, voyeurism, bestiality, group sex, oral sex, anal penetration, S&M, urinating, etc as the entire norm. Pornography doesn’t protect women from rape or humiliation, it reinforces the idea that it’s all harmless fun.
Today’s generation has really no history of sex to compare those images to and on top of that only 5% of all sexual encounters in pornography depict “normal” heterosexual intercourse. Pornography teaches guys what to expect in relationship, while on the flip side of pornography there is a booming multi-billion dollar romance industry that is targeting and educating women.
The romance industry (now dubbed mummy porn) is also leading women into an unrealistic, fantasy world bringing about an unrealistic expectation of men that teaches girls what they should be looking for in a relationship. Now younger girls seem to be in their sights with dark paranormal romance novels becoming the next big attraction. Romance novels out sells all other categories of books almost 2-1. The Pornography industry and romance novels are two poles apart, there can never and will never be any middle ground or compromise, our enemy will make sure of that.
This is the message that the World and the Internet is teaching them right now. If we idly stand by and refuse to educate our kids and neglect to talk to them we, along with the media, society, church (it isn’t doing much to address the problem) pornography, lust, porn-pop culture, we may as well all conspire together to set up the next generation for failure, failure in God, failure in relationships, failure in marriage, failure in morality, failure in holiness, failure in purity, failure to respect the opposite sex.
