But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.
There was once a woman who testified 20 years after the fact that she was sexually abused as a child. She explained that she lived with the scars and shame of being sexually abused by her older brother from the age of eight and beyond because he was plagued and perverted by pornography. Think of what pornography does to the tender psyche, mind, and heart of a little one, if it does this much damage to an adult. Could that be what Jesus meant in the verse above?
More than we will ever know, children so often become victims of adults who are in bondage to this sin. They fall prey to the seduction of adults whose purpose in life is to exploit them. I was shocked in my research of this to discover that there are books on the market today that give detailed instruction to child molesters. And there are even pornographic magazines in print today that cater to pedophiles. Domestically and socially, this sin is damnable!
If you’re a husband and you’re dealing with pornography, I beg you to get some help. This WILL turn into a serious problem for you that won’t go away. There are Christian counselors today who specialize in these kinds of addictions. And also seek help and guidance from a minister in your church that you trust who can lead you in the right direction and help deliver you from this habit.
Wives, if you’re being pressured by a husband that wants to include you in his pornographic habit, you need to ask God to give you the power and strength to stand up and say NO. Refuse to walk down that dead-end street with your husband. Proverbs 6:27 says, “Can a man take fire to his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?” Ask God to guard your heart and mind today from the obscenity of pornography. If you are addicted to pornography, then repent of your sins because Jesus is waiting to forgive and heal you.
IF YOU PLAY WITH PORNOGRAPHY OF ANY KIND, THEN YOU WILL GET BURNED.
