Tomorrow night at Samford (6-7p, Reid Chapel) I am addressing again some hefty subjects: 1) pornography’s distortion of the theological vision of sex and sexuality presented in Scripture and 2) the connections between pornography and social justice.

If you are reading this, I obligate you to lift up a prayer.

We tend to view pornography as a private sin.  But there is no such thing as a private sin.  You can sin in private, but the nature of sin is that it always has public consequences.  So I am quite determined to communicate Scripture’s clear teaching that sin places us on a trajectory that can quickly spin out of control and destroy others, not just ourselves.

By the way, I do not think I am being legalistic and sponsoring some moralistic, even fundamentalist, version of sanitized sexual mores.

For a brief introduction into the effects of pornography on society, see this article by one of my new heroes, Gail Dines—”The Truth About the Porn Industry.”

(And don’t forget—you are supposed to lift up a prayer.)
