Dealing with Porn 1

All this week, I want to look at how to talk to our kids about the issue of pornography. Specifically, I want to share with you some suggestions from my good friend Nicholas Black, who helps people deal with sexual brokenness through his ministry at Harvest USA. Parents, it’s important for you to realize that your kids are growing up in a hypersexualized world where pornography is not only pervasive, but seen as a normal part of life. If your kids are like most, they have been taught to think that looking at pornography isn’t harmful, that everybody else is doing it, and that sex is natural. In essence, they think that they have control over their use of pornography. What was once seen as a vice is now seen as normal. Some Christian kids say that pornography is definitely wrong when you are married, but it’s ok for people before they are married. But your kids need to know that pornography is devastating, and that it negatively impacts their lives. We’ll start looking at how, tomorrow.
