Practical resources to help protect your life, marriage, and family from the harms of pornography.

Focus on the Family NZ

Not only does pornography present a totally distorted view of human sexuality, but we now know that it harms individuals, marriages, and families. It is a major contributor to marital and family breakdown, it fuels the sex-trafficking industry and other sexual crime, and its negative effects on the human brain (especially in adolescence) can lead to sexual dysfunction and major addiction.

As if that weren’t bad enough, it is also now making its negative presence felt in the workplace where time and resources are regularly lost to the viewing and downloading of pornographic content.

Pervasive

Pornography is now so pervasive that young people are first exposed to sexually explicit content online well before adolescence, and most of the time this exposure was not deliberately sought out by children, but instead happens by accident.

To paraphrase a great Christian theologian: ‘The problem with pornography is not that it shows too much of the human person, the problem is that it doesn’t show enough.’

Pornography promotes the lie that human persons can be reduced to nothing more than bodies, to be used and disposed of as mere objects for the gratification of others, without any regard for the profound dignity of the human person who is made in the image and likeness of God.

Because of its serious harms to the human person, to marriages and to families, Focus on the Family NZ has made it a special priority to respond to this issue with the following practical resources aimed at helping individuals, couples and families respond to the problem of pornography with the best tools available.

One resource that Focus on the Family NZ are producing is a series of videos called: Practical Tips for Porn Free Living.

To quote:

In April 2016 we launched our brand new online video series; Practical Tips for Porn-Free Living.

As the name suggests, Practical Tips for Porn-Free Living isn’t merely another resource that highlights the problems associated with pornography. Instead it offers practical advice and concrete strategies that anyone struggling with pornography can implement in their personal life in order to start making forward momentum.

A brand new episode of Practical Tips for Porn-Free Living is posted on our YouTube channel, Facebook page and website every month.

There are now four episodes that I intend to post over the next five days.  If you can’t wait, or want to access this resource directly, the playlist is embedded.
