Integrity Restored: My 7 Year Old Asked Me What Porn Was. Here’s What I told Him

“You see, It’s not a matter of if our kids will see porn, it’s a matter of when. And while good Internet filters and accountability software are a must, we need to help our children develop their own internal filter for the unfiltered world in which they live.”

Relevant: The Real Reason Shame Destroys Your Life

“When Adam and Eve’s shame was exposed in the garden, they both turned immediately inward. Adam shifted his attention away from God and Eve and toward the search for fig leaves to cover himself and to hide his shame. Eve did the same. Man and woman sought independence from God, lost interest in one another’s flourishing and looked out for number one.”

Crossway: You Can Change

“I want to be like Jesus. I can observe him in action as I read the Gospels. I can study the life he lived and the love he showed. I could try very hard to imitate him. But at best that would lead only to a small, short-lived improvement, and indeed even that small improvement would probably only make me proud. I need more than an example. I need help.”

For the Church: The One Ring and Pornography

“Pornography may seem to be a mainly erotic temptation, but its deepest appeal is spiritual. Viewers come for the titillation but they stay for the autonomy, the power to make an alternate reality in which mythological figures (actors and models) submit unhesitatingly.”
