Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Friday Feature 2.5.16 – Recycling vs. Porn: Which Is More Immoral?

Question_mark_blue

This sounds hideous. Just like Jake from Snake Farm.

It sounds easy: porn is clearly more immoral than failing to recycle…right?

Well, the most clicked link from Monday’s post answers the question. Read it here.

As usual, I’m glad to offer a few of my own comments once you’ve read the article.

1. Mindset

The author says this is “stunning but not surprising”.  Has the mindset regarding porn wasted away to the indifference that its moral repulsiveness is less than failing to recycle? If you find that hard to believe, believe it anyway. The mindset of our current culture regarding morality is NOT what it once was.

2. Your reaction?

Are you just as numb to holiness as our current culture?

I start a series Sunday on the book of Lamentations. In it Jeremiah the prophet is portrayed as overwhelmed by the sinfulness of Judah.

Do we, as believers, weep tears over the reality that people think failing to recycle is worse than viewing people enslaved or selling their bodies for sex?

3. Consequences

No sin goes without consequence. None. The ones described in the article should cue us into the damage the regular use of pornography will bring to relationships in the next generation.

Think. Is failing to recycle a sin? Is that a more important question that whether or not viewing porn is a sin?

Act. Continue to influence in any way you possibly can for holiness and for the hearts of young people.
