-Porn Use Among Christians Continues to Escalate

by Dr. D ~ September 7th, 2016

Porn use among Christians in America, who regularly attend church, continues to escalate according to the latest Barna Group research. From Charisma News:

The latest statistics on pornography and the church were released by the Barna Group at the Set Free Summit in Greensboro, NC earlier this year. The existing statistics were daunting enough, stating that 68% of church going men viewed Porn on a regular basis.

The latest stats, available in a report called The Porn Phenomenon, reveal that the porn epidemic is escalating.

Earlier in the year, Josh McDowell who commissioned the research revealed that "Of young adults 18-24 years old, 76 percent actively – and these are Christians – actively seek out porn." …

Porn is now not just a male issue, with 33% of females aged 13-24 using porn regularly.

Response: This is one of those sad situations where a major problem in the dominant American culture is also clearly resident in the Christian community.

According to the report, 91% of the churches in America are ignoring the problem. One reason for that is probably due to the fact that a large number of pastors are also viewing pornography along with their church members. Also from the Barna report:

“Most pastors (57%) and youth pastors (64%) admit they have struggled with porn, either currently or in the past,”

Here’s an article I found this morning on the Christian Post quoting Pastor Rick Warren on this problem:

"You can either feed on truth, or you can feed on trash. Whatever you fill your mind with is what’s going to come out — garbage in, garbage out. If you want to be wise, you’ve got to feed every day on truth, not trash."wrote Warren.  …

"It’s bad for you. It takes you down. Pornography is poison. …

"They say, ‘I can watch that stuff. It doesn’t bother me anymore.’ That’s the problem! When you can watch and read stuff that is profane, blasphemous, evil, vile, and abusive and it doesn’t bother you, you have a problem. …

"The first place you need to go to fill your mind with truth is God’s Word. The more you develop the habit of spending time each day reading and studying the Bible, the wiser you will become."

Amen.                 *Top
