Christians and Pornography: What goes on in your mind?

On this episode of A Word Fitly Spoken, Amy and Michelle are covering a topic that’s a little sensitive – pornography – and even though we’re not going to be graphic in any way, this episode might be one you’d rather listen to without the kids around.

Pornography is such a plague on society in general, and, unfortunately, even Christian men and women have been tempted into using it. What can you do if your spouse is addicted to these images, or is having an emotional affair? What if you’re the one who is caught in the snare of sexual immorality?

As always, we’ll be looking first and foremost at what the Bible has to say, since the Bible is our authority as Christians.


Scriptures teaching that using pornography is a sin and Scriptures about contentment (be sure to study all of these in context)

    Why is it wrong for pornography but ok for game of thrones or harry potter? Why are some Christian ok with those two? They are all bad, I think, for our spiritual growth.

      Hi Tim- I think you would need to ask the individual you’re referring to why he thinks pornography is bad but Game of Thrones or Harry Potter is OK. I don’t think Christians should be watching Game of Thrones for the same reason they shouldn’t be using pornography. I’m not aware of any pornography or graphic sex scenes in Harry Potter (I’ve never read the books or watched the movies) but if there are, then Christians shouldn’t be reading/watching it either.

    These all fall into the category of ‘thought life SIN that Jesus spoke on, ” IF / WHEN a man(or woman) looks on another with lustful thoughts, they have already committed adultery in THEIR HEARTS.” Proverbs tells us , “The HEART is deceitful above all else.’
