  1. Guarding Our Hearts: Proverbs 4:23 states, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Engaging in pornography exposes our hearts to impurity and corrupts our thought life, leading to destructive behaviors and attitudes1.
  2. Sexual Purity: Hebrews 13:4 emphasizes, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” God designed sexual intimacy to be experienced within the bounds of marriage. Consuming pornography distorts this divine plan and promotes sexual immorality1.
  3. Sanctification: 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4 encourages us, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour.” Viewing pornography contradicts the call to live a sanctified life, tarnishing the vessel God has entrusted to us1.
  4. The Eye Gate: Matthew 6:22-23 warns, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.” Pornography corrupts the eye gate, filling our minds and souls with darkness, impeding our spiritual growth and discernment1.
  5. Thought Life: Philippians 4:8 instructs, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Pornography hijacks our thought life, leading us away from thoughts that are pure, noble, and pleasing to God1.
  6. Lust and Adultery: Matthew 5:28 declares, “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Consuming pornography fuels lustful desires and contributes to the sin of adultery, even if only in the heart
