The following excerpt is from an open letter Chuck Swindoll posted on his Insight for Living Website not long ago:
“The most recent studies available suggest that one out of every two people-that’s 50 percent of the people sitting in our pews, are looking at and/or could be addicted to Internet pornography… Truth be told, that statistic could be even higher…
Stop and imagine the ugly but very real possibility of some of your own elders and deacons leaving your meetings and going home to surf porn. Think about youth leaders viewing it one minute, and leading a small group with your kids thirty minutes later. It’s ruining marriages, destroying relationships, harming youth, and hurting the body of Christ. You hardly need to be reminded that fallen pastors and priests did not “suddenly” fall. More often than not, pornography played a role in their downward spiral.
My friend, it’s time to do something about it. In fact, we need to start today. Making a difference requires action… Our churches are in trouble. This is no time to simply wait and pray.”
Could the regular consumption of sexually explicit material online be one of the biggest problems in the church today?
Accepting the fact that at least half of Christian men struggle with porn addiction is a tough pill to swallow.
So what’s the solution?
When the necessary evils of modern technology brings into every home (and pocket) what was once only available in adult stores or in trash cans and hidden stashes, we have a serious battle on our hands.
The average kid with an iPhone today can potentially witness more sex acts than anyone else could in the history of the human race.
And not only the ease of access, but the privacy at which one can fulfill their lusts is a recipe for disaster.
