Enclosed with this issue of Life News is a pamphlet by Andrew Lansdown on the subject of pornography.
While most Christians know that pornography is sinful, many may be hard-pressed to explain why, other than to say that the Bible says so. Yet whenever God defines something as sinful, he also implies it is harmful. So if we can discern the harm, then we can explain the wrong. Andrew’s pamphlet helps Christians to do just that. It details ten ways in which pornography causes harm.
“How pornography harms us” is a pamphlet that will equip Christians to understand and to defend what is right. It is offered to our readers as part of Life Ministries’ ongoing commitment to help Christians to “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
The issue of pornography has gained prominence in Australia in recent months, due to the problem of child sexual abuse in indigenous communities. The Federal government is to be praised for its determination to ban x-rated pornography in aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory. And it is to be praised for its $189 million plan to provide free filter programs to Australian families to keep computers free of internet pornography. But, as television’s Channel Ten reminds us with its sordid Sunday night series, Californication, much more needs to be done.
