Resources on Pornography
Many people struggle with pornography. Statistics tell us that 28,258 people are viewing pornography on the internet every second. 40 million Americans regularly visit porn sites, and approximately 200,000 Americans are addicted to porn. (See this link for more statistics).
Pornography is extremely damaging to the individual, the family, and the community. It undermines the value of human life and leaves its victims with a sense of emptiness and hopelessness. However, there IS hope for those who are caught in the clutches of pornography. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is stronger than the snare of pornography. There is grace and forgiveness in Jesus Christ.
This page contains resources for those who are struggling with pornography, for those who know someone struggling with pornography, for parents, and for churches who want to reach out to their communities and speak the Gospel into this issue.
