Tony Woodlief, writing in World Magazine explains what is wrong with pornography and why we need to be protecting our young sons from its perversity. “I remember discovering my stepfather’s stash of pornography as a child, and the heart-thumping realization that here was something secret and forbidden. There’s no regaining your innocence once you’ve looked upon obscenity.”

Woodlief goes on to argue that the sophisticated who declare there is nothing wrong with looking at beautiful women in stages of undress are simple-minded. The boy who learns to view women as items of sexual consumption will be forever changed.
Until recently, obscenity laws have been our method for helping our children guard their hearts. “The eyes and ears of children must be guarded,” Woodlief says. “This is wisdom garnered over centuries and across civilizations. Only recently has it been cast aside.”
Luke 21:34 (ESV) “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap.”
