Is Porn Really the Problem?

I’ve had a crazy few weeks and have yet to fully complete the study for Friday but need to get something to you now so you have time to at start thinking about where we are going.  I have pasted in the opening paragraph and articles to read for the study below but have yet to get questions out there so I’m giving you what I have now and will get you the questions as soon as I can.  The title is “Is Porn Really the Problem?”  See you Friday!

I realize I am opening up 2 sensitive topics all in one morning, but I believe that after praying and studying God’s Word to us, that I believe they are related…more than any one of us would like to admit.  All of us have had to deal with sexual temptation and sin.  Left unchecked the consequences are devastating but I believe more devastating than just to our marriages. The deception is that if we just eliminated porn, all would be well.  But is that really true?  Women are often treated differently in the church in terms of roles and service citing Biblical precedent for male leadership.  So the answer would appear that if we just put women in places of leadership, all would be well.  But is that really true?.  If we are ever going to “not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of our minds” (Rom 12:2) we must get to root of this.  We’ll start with 3 articles and start our discussion, turning our attention then to God’s Word to see the truth of what is happening and what we can do about it.
