By Chris Chandler, MA, LMHC, CSAT-C , Seattle Christian Counseling, PLLC References “Wired for Intimacy” by William M. Struthers, Ph. D. What’s so bad about porn?
A very good article from a Christian Counselor about the evils of pornography–the supposed victimless sin.
The reality is as the Chris Chandler points out, it objectifies the particpants as well as men and women in general who perform in these vile acts. It also defiles the intimacy of the sexual union and makes sex a sport instead an act of love.
The people themselves commit fornication and also sin in their corruption of others.
The fact is pornography is far from innocent and is an ever growing evil as it takes people to greater depths of moral deprivation. If you are a Christian Counselor, how do you deal with this habit among your spiritual children? Like any sinful habit it can be a trying time as pornography can dominate the soul and ruin relationships. Christian counselors need to focus on the healing Spirit and pray together with the person. If Catholic, frequent confession is advisable. For both Catholics and non-Catholics, meditation, pray and scripture are key to finding purity. If the person falls, get back up without shame, and know the Lord sees your effort and will eventually cleanse you. Many times, falling teaches us that we cannot defeat a vice without the Lord
