Although most believe that children should not have access to sexually explicit
images, this genuine concern should not distract us from the larger issue, namely,
the inherent dangers of pornography for everyone. And yet many people reject
the notion that pornographic material is really harmful. They believe that those
who argue against its use merely seek to impose their outdated sexual attitudes
and norms on others. The implication is that the enlightened among us should
realize that lust--the search for unbounded sexual gratification that fuels
the pornographer's profit margin--is not a vice after all. Rather, they maintain,
it is a natural and healthy part of the human sexual instinct. Christianity
has always taught otherwise. We highlight those teachings here. But is there
any proof that the Biblical message on this topic contains any validity or relevance
for our sexually saturated culture? Is there also a case to be made from sources
outside the faith to back that up? Find out through our special focus.
