Pornography - The Silent Killer

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

Have you ever found old food that has been left out somewhere in a dark place in your house or garage? Even the thought of it makes me say, "yuck."

The smell alone is atrocious. The mold growing on it has mold growing on it, and this dark germ infested Petri dish serves as a magnet for insects and rodents.

What if this picture of old moldy food in the natural realm is eerily similar to what is happening in the spiritual realm when someone is trapped in a porn addiction?

Let's set that possibility a side for just a moment, and first look at some sobering stats on America's issues with porn.

  • Over 40 million Americans are regular visitors to porn sites

  • The porn industry’s annual revenue is more than the NFL, NBA, and MLB combined. It is also more than the combined revenues of ABC, CBS, and NBC.

  • 47% of families in the United States reported that pornography is a problem in their home

  • Pornography use increases the marital infidelity rate by more than 300%

  • 56% of American divorces involve one party having an “obsessive interest” in pornographic websites

  • 55% of married men and 25% of married women say they watch porn at least once a month
