Pornography and Sexting

Pornography is like fog. It settles in and blocks our view. Pornography is sexually explicit material designed specifically to cause arousal and today it permeates our surroundings.

Pornography (hard-core porn, soft porn, child pornography) can be found here: books, magazines, Internet, photos, film, video, video games, TV, sound recordings, drawings, advertisements, animation, mobile phones, sex-oriented businesses, and more. Exposure at any level can lead to the next level and the next. Soon addiction sets in and the consumption won’t stop.

What is sexting and why the connection to pornography? Sexting is the use of a cell phone for sending sexual words and pictures, especially among teens. It has some characteristics of pornography.

Who are the victims? Anyone of any age in your community, your schools, your neighborhood, colleges and universities, and even your church— all are exposed to pornography at some level.

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?” (1 Cor. 6:18–19 NIV).

As a fifth-grade Sunday School teacher, I am always on the lookout for ways to involve my class in missions. I want my students to apply biblical lessons in real ways through serving those around them. With this in mind, I created a club called Count Us In and a social media page to match. With the help of our local convention office, I found a few mission projects to share with my students.
