BIBLE AND PORNOGRAPHY
is an area militant atheists see no problem with. In fact, judging by some
comments on some atheist web sites, some of them appear to be addicted
to this scourge and refuse to let go. To them pornography offers no danger;
to God, it is a destructive evil that will finally devour the consumer.
“You shall not covet your
neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male
servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything
that is your neighbor’s.”
"For the commandment is a lamp,
And the law a light;
Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,
24 To keep you from the
From the flattering tongue of a seductress.
Do not lust
after her beauty in your heart,
let her allure you with her eyelids."
The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the unfaithful
will be caught by their lust.
“You have heard that it was
said to those of old,
‘You shall not commit adultery.’
28 But I say to you that
looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in
"Therefore do not let sin
reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts."
"Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness,
not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy."
"But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and
make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts."
"[ Walking in the Spirit ] I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you
shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh."
"And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,
2 in which you once walked
according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power
of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
3 among whom also we all
once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires
of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as
the others." (Ephesians 2)
"...that you put off, concerning your
former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the
"...that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in
sanctification and honor, 5
not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;"
(1 Thessalonians 4:4-5)
"Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also
with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from
sin, 2 that he no
longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men,
but for the will of God. 3
For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of
the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries,
drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.
4 In regard to these, they think
it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of
dissipation, speaking evil of you.
5 They will give an account to
Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead." (1 Peter 4:1-5)
Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly
lusts which war against the soul,
having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak
against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they
observe, glorify God in the day of visitation."
(1 Peter 2:11-12)
"...having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing
unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are
accursed children." (2 Peter 2:14)
"What shall we say then? Is
the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary,
I would not have known sin except through the law. For
I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not
But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner
of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead.
9 I was alive once without the
law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
10 And the commandment, which
was to bring life, I found to bring death.
11 For sin, taking occasion by
the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.
12 Therefore the law is
holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin,
that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so
that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
14 For we know that the law is
spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For what I am doing, I do not
understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate,
that I do. 16 If, then, I do
what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.
17 But now, it is no
longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
18 For I know that in me (that
is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but
how to perform what is good I do not find.
19 For the good that I will
to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I
practice. 20 Now if I do what I
will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in
21 I find then a law, that evil
is present with me, the one who wills to do good.
22 For I delight in the law of
God according to the inward man. 23
But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and
bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! Who will
deliver me from this body of death? 25
I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! "
