Pornography in Christian Marriages
In Latin, porn is defined as “whore, streetwalker”
In Greek, it’s defined as “sexual immorality; prostitute”
As a Christian Slavic therapist, when I hear of spouses choosing porn “to meet their own needs because the spouse isn’t,” it makes me wonder if individuals truly know the decision they make when they choose to watch porn, engage in extra-marital affairs, attend strip-clubs, have “special company” on Cornerstone Therapy LLC trips.
Men and women alike, do you understand that by watching porn, you are prostituting yourselves?
Do you understand that you are walking emotional “streets” that were never meant to be yours to travel-only to walk into your destruction?
Do you understand that you are breaking your promise before God to stay faithful to each other because He brought you together?
Do you understand that your spouse is not responsible for the behavior you engage in even though you blame them to justify your sin?
Your sexual addiction was there long before you even married them.
Dear spouses, the Book of Proverbs talks about this subject constantly which makes me wonder why we in the Slavic church don’t.
Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent. (She is unruly and defiant, her feet never stay at home; now in the street, now in the squares at every corner she lurks.) She took hold of him and kissed him and with a brazen face she said: “Today I fulfilled my vows, and I have food from my fellowship offering at home. So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you! I have covered my bed with colored linens from Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon. Come, let’s drink deeply of love till morning; let’s enjoy ourselves with love! My husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey. He took his purse filled with money and will not be home till full moon.”With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk. All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life. Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths. Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
We need to start talking about porn and similar behavior like it’s a sin, instead of it being “normal.”
No, it does not make your marriage better-it’s a drug, it never will
