LYING and PORNOGRAPHY

The ugly display in the internet gives pornography undue popularity by people mostly teenagers and men. It rouses their sexual sentiment  and it portrays women’s immorality. Most of those people interested are unmarried and have not enjoyed the intimacy in marriage which was designed by the Almighty God to keep family together. Their minds have been polluted and the images of decent marriages distorted. Young men refused to get married because pornography gave them satisfaction, and the already married men had dead drive to mate with their wives. Teenagers use the medium to learn the technique indecently and before maturity. I heard of a thirteen year old girl who drew various pornography styles on a note-pad kept under her Bible, pretending to be praying. She deceived her parents and her teachers. She lost concentration in her academics as well. Her bad school-report was the evidence.

Pornography has done a lot of havoc to humanity even though some people accepted it as fun. It is a repulsive life circumstance that should be discouraged. It is deplorable and responsible wives would not allow their husbands to see the dignity of women so abused. Matrimony is a sacred union organized by God and human bodies are said to be – The Temple of the Holy Spirit.

Pornography, simply defined, constitutes images in the form of films, videos, photographs, literature, and other materials that enhance sexual arousal. What is pornography to one man is laughter to another. Naturally sex is largely governed by seasonal periods of receptivity, primarily when the female is ” I n heat ” Humans evolved with the desire to engage in sexual behavior at any time of the year. Plenty of people object to such supplemental activities and have succeeded by terming the smutty activity – Carnal Pleasure – conducted by scandal-wearing and Godless people. Pornography is immoral. It is a sin of the mind, slightly less  than adultery, and premarital sex.  Research showed that pornography causes penile erection, vaginal v-a-so-congestion, blood pressure and genital temperature increase in response to exposure to positive pornographic materials. Experts describe three types;

. Mental pornography, Positive pornography and Negative pornography.

. Mental and Positive pornography may not be immoral to some specialists, because in most circumstances, people are not harmed  by them and in-fact may find much pleasure. Negative pornography is certainly harmful to all category of people. It is immoral, and  causes violence against women as seen in rape.

LYING like pornography is a repulsive life circumstance. Truth-telling is vital for trust in human relationships. In binary system of morality, truth telling is right and lying is wrong. Consciously or unconsciously, all of us lie every-day, but most of the lies are the so-called ‘ little white lies ‘, where we might exaggerate our accomplishments. These common place lies include ‘ Lies of commission which intentionally provide false information. Big lies however, are more serious and can be more immoral than little white lies. When telling a lie, most of us do so to increase our own happiness or liberty culturally and spiritually according to the law of Moses. In the Holy Bible, the moral thing is never to tell a lie – Big or white lies. Some experts say – In cases where truth could cause death or unhappiness, well-meaning people look for minute loop-holes to save the situations. Emotions are human if we learn to respect and work with them. Human tension often settles in shoulders; Neck tightening and bunching up the muscles there. But when the body feels light all over and is able to glide freely and easily through space, one is filled with joy. Same for pornography lovers. White lies and pornography may appear useful for some people like most ethical issues, but  crimes will certainly decrease if humans accept them as sins.

Paul in the Holy Bible said – For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the spirit, the things of the spirit (Romans 8:5). Way – forward for future generation is to be Christ-like. We have been born again spiritually. Jesus, Our Redeemer, Himself condemned all sins in the flesh. Righteousness is fulfilled in those who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. Thank God  for His grace of righteousness.
