Oh yea, things are definitely different these days. Especially when it comes to looking at dirty pictures. It used to be like this: Drive to the seedy part of town, go in to the adult book store where you would have to peruse the sordid offerings and take your selections to the counter where a real live person would look you in the eye and say, “will that be all?” “well the magazines are for my uncle, the snickers bar is mine.” Yes, super creepy and embarrassing. Matter of fact it was the ideal deterrent for most people, heck you might even be seen by a neighbor or your pastor or worse one of your wife’s friends.
These days you simply have to turn on your cell phone and find an instant and broad menu of x rated options to feed your unhealthy porn addiction. Best part is, nobody knows… that’s what you think. If you run across pornographic pictures of people under the age of 18 and happen to download them, then you my friend are in possession of child pornography. Send the picture to friend? Distribution of child pornography. Here’s the deal, pornography is highly addictive for most people, like heroin, alcohol, gambling, eating etc. the eye is never satiated. Like any addiction it destroys families, reputations marriages, relationships, careers and just about anything else in it’s path. Pictures and videos are not satisfying your flesh addiction anymore so you need to talk to a real person: Enter the Chat room, here you engage with real people with all kinds of motivations. Ready to live out some of those pornographic fantasies you’ve been perving out to? Perfect because there is a girl you have been talking to who just informed you that her parents will be out of town this weekend and she has been looking forward to spending the night with you for months. Her screen name is Heidihoe14 but her real name is investigator Simpson from the Miami Pedophile undercover unit and he has some pretty exciting experiences in store for you. He is tracking your internet address and as soon as you agree to meet your victim his quick response team will be on it’s way to intercept you and place you under arrest for soliciting underage girls for sex. Penalties for soliciting minors on the internet are severe. The difference between sex with a 17 year old and an 18 year old is about 8 years in the slammer. Here is a suggestion, DON’T DO IT! Furthermore, if you have a propensity to look at pornography get some help.
Here is a little truth…with a huge payoff. Galatians: 5:19
The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But… the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (There is NO LAW)
