What Are Our Kids Watching or Viewing Online?
Do We Really Know?

Back before TV and the Internet, David said this in Psalm 101:2, 3 – I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.  O when wilt thou come unto me?  I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.  I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. (My guess is that he wrote this AFTER his sin with Bathsheba and his lingering looking that led to adultery, murder and was a catalyst for a LOT of sin.)

A former editor of a “soft pornography” magazine, Martin Daubney’s views changed on porn partly out of his desire to protect his son.
Here is the full Christian Post article about, “Former Porn Magazine Editor Now Warns Parents to Protect Children From It“.

I just want to share some excerpts here:Daubney, who is a presenter in the upcoming documentary “Porn on the Brain,” explained his shock when the “well turned-out, polite, giggly and shy” students he interviewed had an “extensive knowledge of porn terms…that superseded that of every adult in the room” including a sex education consultant.

“These kids were balanced, smart and savvy. They were the most academically gifted and sporting in the school. They came from ordinary, hard-working households,” said Daubney, who was horrified to learn that most of the pornography they were consuming was accessible via Facebook and their cell phones.

“The adults in attendance were incredulous at the thought that not only did this kind of porn exist, but that a 14-year-old boy may have actually watched it,” said Daubney.

Daubney was even more dismayed that much of the hardcore stuff that the students were watching had already altered boys’ sexual expectations for girls, leading to disappointment and revulsion when the reality of the girls’ bodies did not match that of the porn stars.

The teens also indicated that they believed that most of their peers were also watching hardcore porn online and that their parents trusted them and were oblivious to their Internet viewing habits – an assertion supported by a recent U.K. survey of the viewing habits of 80 12 to 16 year-olds.

Daubney also studied the long-term effects of pornography addiction and discovered that many had lost relationships, jobs, and money because of porn.

Pornography, is a world wide problem and it does affect individuals and entire families.  I personally know MANY that have ended their marriages as a result of this sin, and I’m sure you do too!  It’s THAT big of a problem and we don’t want it affecting our children!  This is one of the reasons why human trafficking exists today, sexual slavery.

There are a couple of movies I’d like to recommend here that deal with pornography.

Fireproof-Christian-MovieFilm-DVD-Blu-ray-Sherwood-Pictures-Kirk-Cameron-235x340Fireproof

Fireproof, a well known popular movie deals with this subject and is highly recommended.  The Love Dare book that went along with this movie had literally saved thousands of marriages and strengthened relationships with each other and with Jesus!   No matter what…if you struggle with this addiction, or any addiction, GET HELP and continue to pray!  Celebrate Recovery Group is one place to get help.

 

Invisible-Enemies-Christian-MovieFilm-DVD-235x340Invisible Enemies

Invisible Enemies is one of the most powerful Christian films I’ve ever seen and it only slightly deals with pornography, but this one deals with EVERYTHING, the evil forces behind all the sins that are committed.  WE HIGHLY recommend watching this film, although may be a little scary for younger children.

 

video-games-realityScary Statement

Why do we do the things we do?  Why do we watch TV/Movies, play video games, read fantasy books?  The answer is above…to escape Reality!  That is SCARY in itself.  That is NOT what God intended for us to do.  He intended for His children to spread the love of His Book, the Bible.  To encourage, to bless, to help mankind find Jesus.  That’s our purpose.  All these other sins that are addictive, were all invented by the devil to distract us from our purpose and to destroy our lives, which he has been quite successful, I might add.

Don’t give up, determine in your heart as Daniel did, written in Daniel 1:8.  He purposed in his heart NOT to defile himself with the portion of the King’s meat and drink.  That is EXACTLY what we need to do too!  Say NO to the false prince Satan and his delicacies and say YES to Jesus and His Word and His ways…The end result is eternity with Him.  Do NOT give up, no matter what your struggle today!
