It seems this is the summer to bombard women with pornography aimed straight at them.
And make no mistake that is exactly what it is.
And while, I guess I'm not so surprised about the fact that these things are being written and produced, I am
surprised at the level of which Christian women are flocking to them.
As if we're no different at all.
It's almost like we're children saying 'nah nah boo boo', to a society that's created this garbage for men for so long.
But, in our attempts to 'get back' or, at least, level the playing the field in this area will only come back
and hurt us more.
Because, just like for men, pornography kills you from the inside out.
It deadens you to what is actually real.
And suddenly you become dissatisfied with your flesh and blood spouse, maybe not today, but given exposure to it long enough, you will.
Or if you don't have a spouse, no ordinary man will ever be able to fill the fantasy driven scenes in your mind.
Because everyday life is harder than some book, and more real than any Hollywood movie could ever be.
Suddenly, the man who holds back the hair of your little one while they're sick isn't glamours enough because he doesn't have a six pack, or doesn't read your every thought.
That same man who works hard everyday is now boring, because real life isn't always a party. And sometimes, well he's just tired.
Hey, I KNOW men have had this stuff available to them for decades-if not longer-. . .
But, is that really how we're going to justify reading and watching pornography?
Our standard is never mans, but a Holy God's.
And don't ever be naive and think He doesn't care about what your feeding your soul.
Lest you read this and think I'm sitting in judgement of you if you've already read the book or seen the movie, I promise I don't.
That is not my intent.
But, if I saw you drowning I would jump in to save you, not watch from the side lines.
Walk in the light,
