The deadly challenge of Internet Porn and Social Media websites - A lecture by Mr.Jim Cowie


Internet pornography is pornography that is accessible over the Internet, primarily via websites, peer-to-peer file sharing, or Usenet newsgroups. While pornography had been available over the Internet since the 1980s, it was the availability of widespread public access to the World Wide Web in 1991 that led to an expansion of Internet pornography.
The Internet enables people to access pornography more or less anonymously and to view it in the comfort and privacy of their homes. It also allows access to pornography by people whose access is otherwise restricted for legal or social reasons, such as children.
 What does the Bible teach...
Several specific sexual acts are forbidden in the Bible. Among these are homosexuality,1 bestiality (sex with animals),2 and incest (sexual relations with close family members, including your mother, sister, niece, aunt, daughter-in-law, and sister-in-law),3 fornication (sexual relations outside of marriage)4 and adultery (sexual relations with another person's spouse),5 rape (forced sex),6 and orgies.7 To emphasize the seriousness of these kinds of offenses, the penalty was death.8 All of these categories are abundantly represented in pornographic offerings. The only acceptable form of sexual expression—between a married husband and wife—is virtually absent. So, virtually all the acts pornography depicts are prohibited in the Bible. Obviously, one should not be participating in such acts, even vicariously.
