Who's Getting My Best?

We all have only so much relational energy, and pornography acts like a hole in our relational gas tanks, draining away the love we’re meant to share with others in our lives. The big lie of porn is that it’s victimless. Porn hurts everyone, from the people who make it to the people who use it to the families of the users. Porn is injustice because porn reduces persons created in God’s image to objects to be used for others’ pleasure. How can we resist the toxic effects of porn on our culture? How can we be a church that affirms God’s image in everyone?

From Series: "Social"

Most of us don't connect new technologies to our faith. After all, Jesus never had a Facebook profile. He didn't post on Instagram or even have a smartphone. No wonder we struggle to imagine the Bible has anything to say about this Brave New World we live in. But we can think theologically about the technology in our lives. We can learn not a new set of rules (How many episodes per day is too many when I'm binge-watching? How old should my kids be before they get smartphones?), but rather how to ask the right questions. Do our technologies help us bring about God's surprising, mustard seed kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven? How are our screens spiritual? Welcome to SOCIAL.
