Ministry leader and family advocate Josh McDowell reports that he has launched a new series of resources to raise awareness about the growing threat of online pornography. The Just1ClickAway.org website, video and articles from McDowell and other participating organizations offer solutions for families and people of all ages, though McDowell placed a warning label on the video because of its mature content. "The greatest threat to the cause of Christ is pervasive sexuality and pornography," McDowell said. "Today we have, by and large, lost control of the controls because an intrusive immorality is just one click away from our children. With just one keystroke on a smartphone, iPad or laptop, a child can open up some of the worst pornography and sexually graphic content you can imagine. There's never been such access in history." The Just1ClickAway.org video shares statistics about the destructive impact of porn on the Christian family; for example, the average age of first-time views of pornography is 9 years old; 80 percent of 15-to-17-year-olds have been exposed to hardcore porn; the adult porn industry reports that 20 to 30 percent of their traffic comes from children; and 30 percent of pastors have viewed pornography in the last 30 days.
