It is one of the most difficult discussions to have. Is your child or spouse looking at pornography? Many parents or spouses like to pretend that the problem couldn't possibly exist in their household. The church and the family is under attack in many different ways but the pornography industry has gotten an unprecedented foothold in recent years. Most children are able to surf freely online, and many children are more computer savvy than their parents. Spouses are simply clearing their search history in order to hide where they have been online. It has never been as easy to access pornographic material as it is today and the statistics back up this statement. Check out these statistics:
* 1 in 8 searches done online, are for pornographic material
* 50% of Christian men are addicted to porn
* 9 out of 10 boys, and 6 out of 10 girls were exposed to pornography before the age of 18
* Today, 68% of young adult men and 18% of women use porn at least once every week
* 56% of divorce cases involved one party having an obsessive interest in pornographic websites
These are just a small number of stats that show the power of pornography and the ever present danger that ensues in your house. Fortunately, there is help. There are many different programs that families have found to be helpful with protecting the most valuable possessions.
Before I worked in government affairs, I worked for an organization called Covenant Eyes (CE). They have been striving to protect the church and family from pornography for almost 15 years. CE offers software that you can download on to your child’s or spouse’s computer and smart phone. They then send you a weekly report of all sites visited by that person. This accountability has saved many marriages and snatched many children from the jaws of addiction. Don’t let your family be destroyed by this predator that is pornography.
