The word pornography is rooted in the Greek word porneia, which means to practice prostitution, sexual immorality, or fornication. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul frequently used this word in reference to any kind of sinful and illegitimate sexual activity. Our friends at the HarvestUSA ministry offer this helpful definition of pornography that’s written from a biblical perspective: Pornography is anything that the heart uses to find sexual expression outside of God’s intended design for relational intimacy. It is anything that tempts or corrupts the human heart into desiring sexual pleasure in sinful ways. Parents, we need to teach our kids that God has made sex for our good and his glory, but that we can only experience it in these ways when we stay within his purpose and his plan. Paul tells us that we are to flee from sexual immorality, or porneia. Talk to your kids about pornography, along with the dangers that come with indulging our good gift of sexuality in sinful ways.
