“While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their Virtue they will be ready to surrender their Liberties to the first external or internal invader…” So said Samuel Adams. And he might have been talking about one of the strongest anti-virtue influences that plague civilization: pornography.
Must accept diversity of moral values?
Today, Americans are being told that they must embrace diversity, to accept that which God forbids, in order to bring about unity among the nations. We also are being told that we must think of the whole world’s good rather than just the United States and our sovereignty (Revelations 17:17). Of course, that comes by taking on their world agenda and then we are led to believe that somehow it will unify us, the opposite is true.
One of the major propaganda pushes being used by the masters and players is to push immorality through advocating sexual promiscuity and pornography.
The chief unifying Influence: God
What unifies us (Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 4:3) as Americans is “that we are ‘rooted and built up in Him,’” not to be spoiled “through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:7-8).
What unifies us is that we are “one nation under God.” We are not to adhere to the nations by subjecting ourselves to the spirit of disobedience toward God (Ephesians 2:2, 6:12) by adhering to that which God condemns, which are the immoralities that separate us from our God, rather than adherence to the Word which is our strength, not our weakness.
What is pornography?
Pornography (porn) defined is the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the exclusive purpose of sexual arousal.
Greek Lexicon – 1. to prostitute one’s body to the lust of another 2. To give one’s self to unlawful sexual intercourse 3. To be given to idolatry, to worship idols a. to permit oneself to be drawn into
One site said that Pornography in the United States has advanced by technological development. It has gone from a hard to find “back alley” item, beginning in 1968 with the Golden Age of Porn (1969–1984), to being more available in the country and later, starting in the 1990s, readily accessible to nearly anyone with a computer or other device connected to the Internet. The U.S. has no current plans to block explicit content from minors, which is obviously their end aim (Matthew 18:6).
This is the Supreme Court’s version of freedom of speech, which advocates the crimes that they are appointed to prevent.
“Liberty is the right to do what the Law permits.” – Charles De Montesquieu
Hollywood, along with the media and corrupt representation, help promote sexual promiscuity, the children learn the lesson (Proverbs 22:6), they are then impregnated and taught by the same courts and media to eradicate the fruit of the womb under the guise of choice (Proverbs 6:17).
The very things that Scripture warns us to stay away from are the very things that the corrupt in the world governments are promoting.
What is written, and how to test it
“I have written unto you,fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, thel ust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” – 1 John 2:14-18
If one would like to test the accuracy of Scripture and would like to know the truth of the matter, that is all you have to do is look to what happens when men fail to take heed to the Word of God (Psalm 18:21).
- David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11)
- Solomon and his lust for foreign woman (I Kings 11)
- Samson and Delilah (Judges 16:1-20)
- The Sodomites (1 Peter 2:6)
- Bestiality (Exodus 22:19)
- Incest (Deuteronomy 27:22)
Yet, in America today, no matter where you go, whether it be in your health books in high schools or stories told to children in pre-school , movie trailers or a movie, if it be a commercial, a radio ad, a billboard on the side of the road or a billboard on a bus or in a magazine on the rack, when going to the grocery store check-out or even going into a restroom, there it is, right in front of your face: sexually suggestive content. It is not hard to find, it is hard to ignore (Psalm 101:3; Matthew 6:22; Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Hebrews 12:2; 1 John 5:4).
When you go to your computer and go online, there it is: ads popping up with suggestive content, content that you have to check off and rate so that their ads do not return on the same page (and this is often found, in many cases, on G-rated sites), content pops up that you cannot ignore. It is literally coming at you from every direction. All of this is by design to further wield power over a people by first demoralizing them, and in the end, enslaving them (John 8:34).
The tech giants’ involvement (how ironical!)
Piggybacking on this are the big tech companies who are also promoting that which is subversive to American government such as Twitter, Google, and Facebook.
I have found Twitter to be the absolute worst as I would scroll through their live feeds and having pops ups come out of nowhere from semi-porn sites to blatant pornography sites. You then go to block the image only to find that Twitter then saves it. You then look to the source of the images or film only to delete pages that have sexually explicit content on them while new ones at the same time pop up and adhere to your feed, which only leads you back to what you similarly just deleted.
I personally had to delete 37,000 friends so I would not have to see their feeds any longer.
You may even want to check out what sort of movie content that you may have in your homes. Many actors and actresses you will find have compromised themselves in selling their souls for the world that they desire to have through advocating sexual promiscuity.
What Jesus said
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.”
And what did Jesus answer?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Luke 4:5-8
How destructive is the choice (Deuteronomy 30:19) of pornography?
How pervasive is pornography on the Net?
- 28,258 users are watching pornography on the internet.
- $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography on the internet.
- 372 people are typing the word “adult” into a search engine.
- 37 pornographic videos are created in the United States.
- 2.5 billion emails containing porn are sent or received.
- 68 million search queries related to pornography- 25% of total searches- are generated.
- 116,000 queries related to child pornography are received.
How Online Pornography Affects Americans
- About 200,000 Americans are classified as “porn addicts.”
- 40 million American people regularly visit porn sites.
- 35% of all internet downloads are related to pornography.
- 34% (?) of internet users have experienced unwanted exposure to pornographic content through ads, pop up ads, misdirected links or emails.
- One-third of porn viewers are women.
Family/Marital Pornography Stats
The negative effects of pornography do not end after development. They can be just as harmful to families and marriages.
- According to National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families, 2010, 47% of families in the United States reported that pornography is a problem in their home.
- Pornography use increases the marital infidelity rate by more than 300%.
- 40 percent of people identified as “sex addicts” lose their spouses, 58 percent suffer considerable financial losses, and about 33% lose their jobs.
- 68% of divorce cases involve one party meeting a new paramour over the internet while 56% involve one party having an “obsessive interest” in pornographic websites.
Pornography is the fuel to the fire concerning rape, sodomy, pedophilia, sex trafficking etc… And yet it is promoted around the clock.
Maybe this explains why pornography was illegal in America, and according to law, it still is (Deuteronomy 22:22; Exodus 20:14; Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 6:9; Revelations 21:8).
The legalization and “mainstreaming” of pornography
Denmark was the first country to legalize pornography in 1967. The following year, the United States Supreme Court , acting outside of their scope of authority (Article 3, Section 1, US Constitution; Jeremiah 5:31), held that people could view whatever they wished in the privacy of their own homes.
What is even more diabolical about all of this is when pornography was becoming normalized, with the help of the likes of Alfred Kinsey and friends, the federal government was setting up the people for crimes that they fueled through the use of pornography they just legalized. Interesting how that works.
What Scripture says
Scripture tells us that “Stolen waters are sweet, and breadeatenin secret is pleasant” (Proverbs 9:17).
Matthew Henry explains, “How diligent the tempter is to seduce unwary souls into sin! Carnal, sensual pleasure, stupefies conscience, and puts out the sparks of conviction. This tempter has no solid reason to offer; and where she gets dominion in a soul, all knowledge of holy things is lost and forgotten.”
God’s moral law states:
“Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14)!
“The soul that sinneth shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20)
Jesus said in the New Testament:
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” -Matthew 5:27-29
The consequence of unrepented (Acts 20:21; 2 Corinthians 7:10) sin before God is death and Hell (1 Corinthians 6:9).
Coming between man and God
Pornography is designed to break down unity between man and his Maker (Isaiah 59:2), to break down the family, leaving it to be open easy prey to those who are wielding power in hopes of absolute control over their lives (John 10:10), to give power to the nanny state and in the end, to destroy the soul (Romans 6:23) and the country.
“Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.” -Leviticus 19:29
Yet, we find that 68% of professed Christians watch porn in America. This is a lack of Christianity (Hebrews 4:15; James 1:12-16).
Depart from sin
To unite with Christ (Galatians 3:24) is to depart from sin.
Jesus came to deliver His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21) and to manifest Himself in destroying the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” -Revelation 12:11
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” -1 John 4:4
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” -Galatians 5:1
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” -Galatians 5:24-25
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” -Romans 8:37
“While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued!”
