Sex, Porn, and the Darkness of Sin
“Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Truly sin knows no bounds. It is so evil that it will take a person down paths they never thought capable. Sin lies deep in the heart of human nature and is so dark that most of the world cannot accept it, choosing rather to believe the lie that we are good. Of the many hundreds of people that I have asked, “do you consider yourself a good person?” almost everyone has answered, “yes”; so let us look at some facts.
In the United States alone there is an estimated 100,000 children being trafficked for sex a year (FBI estimates 300,000), at the average age of 12- 14 years old; that is not including adult slavery. The average amount these children are forced to have sex each day is 34 times, meaning that there are 3,400,000 customers per day in the US who pay to sleep with children. The US population is 323,700,700 and counting, which means that an estimated 1 out of every 95 people (or 1 out of 31 if FBI is right) around you are paying to sleep with a child each day. In the US alone, sex trafficking produces 9.5 billion dollars a year in revenues. That’s a lot of money.
Let’s move on to pornography. In the US, pornography grosses 13 billion per year and is viewed by 87% percent of all young males (9 out of 10), and 31% of young woman (1 out of 3). That means that almost every young man you see looks at pornography. Porn sights get more visitors per month than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined. That is a huge amount! According to a Google trends analysis, 1/3rd of all daily searches for pornographic websites are for “teen porn”; about 500,000 searches a day. Out of 304 videos analyzed, 88.2% contained physical aggression; this means that much of the world is interested in aggressive underage sex. Stats show that those who watch violent X rated videos are 6 times more likely to force others into sexual acts. Experts also say that pornography leads to a rise in STD’s and abortion.
Child porn is rapidly increasing in popularity and becoming more gruesome, bringing in 3 billion per year in the US, while even searches for bestiality produce 2.7 million in revenues. Bestiality is sex with animals.
Last we will examine the topic of abortion. In short, abortion is the murder of an unborn child who would have otherwise lived, just as you are now living. If you were aborted, you would not be reading this, but thank God your mother gave birth to you. Studies have shown that babies (“fetuses”) have feelings and sensation, and are sensitive to touch. They dream, they suck their thumb, and during an abortion their heart beat increases as they silently scream and attempt to escape the tools used to abort them. It has been discovered that babies from 20- 40 weeks have “heightened” sensitivity to pain, so yes, abortion hurts them, you just don’t hear it (so it must be ok right??)
During an abortion from 1- 12 weeks, a vacuum is placed into the woman and is violently moved around until it tears the baby’s limbs apart and sucks it down the tube. During a partial birth abortion, the baby is pulled out by his feet, but the head is left in the womb; then scissors are jammed in the back of his skull, opening a hole for the vacuum that is used to literally suck out his brain. The limp body is then pulled out and discarded. As of now there have been over 56 million children murdered on American soil. That is far more than were murdered in the Holocaust, yet the world says, “It’s our right!” No one has the right to murder.
Therefore, these are just a few of many facts to make you think and decide for yourself. Hopefully you will be honest and realize that hidden in the heart of man is murder, rape, pedophilia, and a craving for sin of some sort or another. Men are full of dark secrets on the inside, while putting on a front for the world. Understand that God knows every secret sin of your heart: every lie, every deceit, every gossip, all greed, malice, selfishness, hatred, sinful imagination, and evil desire for things too wicked to mention, and He will judge every one of them on the Day of judgment (Romans 2:16). And yes, He should. God is angry with the wicked every day, and will punish forever those who persist in ungodliness (Psalms 7:11; Revelations 21:8).
But there is hope! God is also rich in mercy, and has provided one way of escape for you, to save you from His wrath. Jesus came from heaven and became a Man, lived a perfect life and then was crucified for your sins. Then Jesus rose from the dead, never to die again. God punished His own Son instead of you, so that you could be forgiven, completely washed clean of all sin, even hidden sin. But God also offers to clothe you in the righteousness of His Son, and by His power change your very nature, making you a child of God (John 1:12, 13). He can give you eternal life today if you will put your trust in Him. I plead with all who read this, if you have not, please repent of the sin in your own life and believe the gospel message. You can pass from death to life in a moment if you will surrender all to Jesus; for He loved you and gave His life for you.
