The “Great Reset” Is an Alive, Active, Real Conspiracy Against You
The US Supreme Court Has Aligned With Democrats and Big Pharma Against the American People
Censorship is obviously nothing new. YouTube, which might win First Prize in today’s Censorship Sweepstakes, has banned thousands of channels for no other reason than challenging the official narrative on various topics—especially COVID. My interview with Spiro Skouras was deleted by YouTube in less time than the podcast itself lasted, and it had to be transferred to Bitchute. An interview I did some time ago with Eric Gajweksi of TradCatKnight—before he moved his podcast from YouTube to private—received 226,000 views after 5 days. Then YouTube simply stopped counting. After a month, the interview still listed “226,000 views.” Other hosts have told me their YouTube views actually went down—a physical impossibility.
Subscriber numbers have also been monkeyed with—as can be confirmed by Sean of SGT Report, who “officially” had over 600,000 subscribers before YouTube yanked him. Demonetization of videos (removing ads) is yet another way of squeezing the “politically incorrect.” Censorship comes in many forms.
My own paperback on COVID was banished by Amazon, after selling more than 3,500 copies in less than two months, even though every statement it made was supported by end-notes to scholarly and/or mainstream sources, and despite Amazon’s lack of qualified medical professionals on its staff, plus its inability to name, upon request, a single misstatement that the book had made.
There is, however, a more subtle form of censorship than outright deletion: “shadow banning.”
I joined Twitter in 2014, and, as a result of a stream of Tweets and memes, saw a steady increase of followers from zero to 22.3 thousand in 2020. Theoretically, anyone who follows you is supposed to automatically receive your Tweets in their own Twitter feed. (Of course, not everyone will actually have time to see all the Tweets of accounts they subscribe to, especially if they follow a large number of people.) However, I began to notice strange happenings.
In 2020, I was gaining an average of about 30 followers a day, meaning I should have added about 10,000 more in the past year. Instead, my new followers have increased from 22.3K to just 22.5K followers over the past year, a total of about 200, or an average less than one per day. Part of this—but certainly not all—was attributable to systemic purges of other Twitter accounts, which sometimes saw hundreds of my followers vanished overnight.
But there was more to it than this. What I post on Twitter mostly consists either of memes (samples here) or links to posts and news articles. But something odd occurred. I was getting significantly fewer “retweets” and “likes” with 22,000 followers than I used to with 7,000 or so followers. There was a time when a Tweet of mine could get a thousand retweets, but now I was lucky to get 20.
Added suspicion grew when some of my followers wrote to me and asked why I wasn’t Tweeting any longer. I replied: “I haven’t stopped Tweeting at all; I Tweet every day; visit my feed at https://twitter.com/jamesperloff.”
The banning was reciprocal, by the way. My Twitter feed (Tweets I see from other people) was also shrinking. It was taking less and less time to scroll to where I had finished viewing the day before.
One day I realized I hadn’t seen a Tweet from my old friend Henry Makow in weeks. When I visited his page, not only did I discover that Henry had been Tweeting regularly, but someone had removed me as one of his followers (And it was certainly not Henry; he had not “blocked” me). So I hit the “follow” button again. By the way, Henry, with over 30,000 followers, was eventually removed altogether by Twitter, though he is now back as Henry M @TheNewHenryM.
About a month ago, I grew more skeptical when I posted a meme that received perhaps a dozen retweets. Two days later, someone else posted the exact same meme, and it got about 60 RTs (retweets). I assumed the person had a larger following, but on checking their profile, I saw they had about 1,000 followers, about 5 percent of mine.
So I decided to perform a test. I posted a meme. After about an hour or so, it had 3 RTs and 6 “likes.” I then asked a friend on Twitter, who has a comparable following (but is clearly not shadow-banned) to retweet it.
Within another hour or so, it jumped to over 70 RTs, and subsequently climbed to the stats you see in the screenshot below—over 100 RTs and over 300 likes.
These were numbers I had not seen in months, but used to see rather typically.
So I now had confirmation of what I had suspected was going on: shadow banning. Only a small handful of my 22,000 followers were actually being permitted to view my Tweets.
Things could be worse, of course—one can be banned from Twitter altogether. I have already been in Twitter Jail twice—once for simply linking to a story in the mainstream news media about a healthy 28-year-old who died after getting a COVID shot.
However, shadow banning may be more destructive in its own subtle way. It makes you labor under the illusion that you are reaching a large number of people, when in fact you aren’t. Some individuals have sent me news, information, announcements about protest marches, etc., commenting to this effect: “You have wide influence; could you please share this?” I have obliged them, but unfortunately the outreach was far more limited than hoped for.
I have been advised, of course, to try switching platforms. I have never joined FaceBook (which has the largest subscriber base in social media) because of its Draconian censorship (last year FB began blocking every single post on my old website as “abusive,” prohibited any mention of jamesperloff.com on FaceBook Messenger, and reset the history of all my posts previously shared on FB from (in cases, several thousand) to zero. I have joined Gab (https://gab.com/JamesPerloff)—touted to be censorship-free—but have yet to post there. I know there are many other media platforms, but it is time-consuming to simultaneously post in multiple places, and on some of these platforms, censorship still waits in the wings.
In the meantime, most people who follow me on Twitter must unfortunately check my feed (https://twitter.com/jamesperloff) on a regular manual basis–unless I get booted off permanently.
On Tuesday the 26th October 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel voted to formally recommend that children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old be authorised to receive Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccineunder emergency use authorization (EUA).
The committee was posed with the following question:
‘Based on the totality of scientific evidence available, do the benefits of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine when administered as a 2-dose series outweigh its risks for use in children 5-11 years of age?‘
Unbelievably, although it perhaps should be predictable by now, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted 17-0 with one doctor abstaining, clearing the way for the full FDA authorisation.
THE JCVI – “THERE IS LITTLE RISK OF COVID IN YOUNG PEOPLE”
The U.K. government’s vaccine advisory panel — Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisationsays that a first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine could prevent 87 COVID-related hospital admissions per million children but comes with a risk of 3 to 17 cases of vaccine-induced Myocarditis. A second dose prevents a further six hospitalizations per million but risks an additional 12 to 34 cases of myocarditis.
The JVCI deliberated on the risk and benefits of children and young people receiving the vaccination and have said that the evidence strongly indicates that almost all children and young people are at very low risk from COVID-19. Where symptoms are seen in children and young people, they are “typically mild, and little different from other mild respiratory viral infections which circulate each year”.
Although the government had given missed education as a good reason to vaccinate, the JCVI addressed this arguing that young people who have “SARS-CoV2” infection do not become so unwell that they need to take time off school. Should the government wish to consider vaccinating children aged less than 18, the known benefits are limited.
In September the JCVI declined to recommend vaccine for adolescents 12 upwards, there would be no reason to think they would recommend the vaccine for the younger 5 – 11-year-olds. They instead passing the decision to Britain’s chief medical officers, preferring to wait for more data to be accrued.
VACCINATE THEM TO SAVE THE ADULTS?
That is all well and good, but arguably, sufficient data and evidence has been accrued, for instance, the modelling used by the British government taken from the University of Warwick and from Public Health England, have indicated that vaccinating young people and children, may have some impact on hospitalisations and even deaths in older adults but even by their own admission, “the extent of such benefits is highly uncertain.”
What we are certain of is that the children should not be made to feel responsible for deaths of adults who have had adverse reactions, or simply died of the “co morbidities” that they would have died of anyway.
According to Professor David Livermore, a medical microbiologist at the University of East Anglia ‘Vaccinating children to protect adults via herd immunity is ethically dubious and is scientifically weak.’ There are also still fears about myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation detected in children, mostly boys, in around one in 10,000 cases after vaccination.
VACCINATE THEM DESPITE THE ADVERSE REPORTS
We are also certain that there are post vaccination risks for children and it is the adults that should be keeping them safe. The certainty of risk can be clarified as a result of the reports of adverse reactions in the UKs Yellow Card Scheme and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the United States.
Just one study alone examined the VAERS data, the researchers found that post-vaccination incidences of cardiac adverse event (CAE) rate for boys 12 – 17 equates to 162.2 per million children without medical comorbidities and are highest in young boys aged 12-15.
The event rate far exceeds the expected 120-day COVID-19 hospitalisation rate at both moderate (August 21, 2021 rates) and high COVID-19 hospitalisation incidence. This evidence is further strengthened by the latest assessment published by the Advisory Committee on Immunisation Practices (ACIP) on Aug. 30, “data available to date suggest association of myocarditis with mRNA vaccination in adolescents and young adults.”
VACCINATE THEM DESPITE THE WARNINGOF DEATHS ASSOCIATED WITH IT?
Again simply by looking at the reported adverse events in VAERS a bold note accompanying the reports can be clearly seen stating *Notethat the total number of deaths associated with the COVID-19 vaccines is greater than the number of deaths associated with all other vaccines combined since the year 1990. That statement alone should mean end of discussion, particularly when that discussion is referring to the roll out of the emergency use authorisation of what is termed “COVID Vaccine”.
OR JUST VACCINATE THEM AND THEN WE CAN FIND OUT IF IT IS SAFE?
It therefore would make anyone wonder why there is a need for deliberation and more data, after one voting member of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee admitted that it won’t be known fully whether Pfizer’s vaccine is safe for 5 to 11-year-old children, until it begins being administered.
Dr Eric Rubin of Harvard university admitted “We’re never going to learn how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it, and that’s just the way it goes”.
Despite Dr. Rubin’s admission, the panel’s decision was unanimous in favour of recommending it under emergency use authorisation (EUA). Unbelievably, although it perhaps should be predictable by now, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted 17-0 with one doctor abstaining, clearing the way for the full FDA authorisation.
The question is, will parents of young children agree to them being guinea pigs for their agenda?
Thousands of protesters gathered in Melbourne’s CBD on Saturday calling on Premier Daniel Andrews to resign as they rallied against the Victorian government’s new pandemic legislation.
Chants erupting from the crowd included: “End the mandates,” “Stop medical apartheid,” and “We need Bill of Rights!”
“Kill the bill,” protesters chanted.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1454279774596067335&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fhumansarefree.com%2F2021%2F10%2Faustralia-protests-draconian-pandemic-powers-bill.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550px
The declaration will give the health minister “broad powers to make pandemic orders” on the chief health officer’s advice and will replace the current state of emergency, which expires on December 15.
A similar process is in place in NSW and New Zealand, where the health minister is directly accountable to parliament.
As 7News reports, the laws also introduce safeguards around protecting contact tracing and QR code information, while an aggravated offence will be created to “deter … the most egregious pandemic-related behaviors”.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1452596162863636483&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fhumansarefree.com%2F2021%2F10%2Faustralia-protests-draconian-pandemic-powers-bill.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550px
Mr Andrews has also warned unvaccinated Victorians will be subject to COVID-19 restrictions “well into 2022”.
People found guilty of “intentionally and recklessly” breaching public health orders would also face two years in jail or a $90,500 fine and businesses could be fined up to $452,500.
While Melbourne was placed under lockdown on six separate occasions beginning in March 2020, spending nearly nine months under stay-at-home orders cumulatively, the city’s restrictions were again eased on Friday, with travel bans and outdoor mask mandates lifted, among other things. Victoria as a whole, however, remains under some Covid-19 measures, including 75% capacity rules at indoor entertainment venues and limits on outdoor gatherings to just 30 people.
Authorised workers must be fully vaccinated by November 26.
The vaccine mandate has since been extended to social settings in Victoria, with harsh restrictions stopping the unvaccinated from entering restaurants, bars and events.
“This is critically important to keep case numbers down,” Mr Andrews said.
“This is not about stopping people going to work, it’s about making sure we can open up.
“It’s about making sure people can go to work, that they can be safe, and that we can defend and deliver our road map for opening.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-2&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1454271472973664257&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fhumansarefree.com%2F2021%2F10%2Faustralia-protests-draconian-pandemic-powers-bill.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550pxhttps://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-3&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1454323937836298246&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fhumansarefree.com%2F2021%2F10%2Faustralia-protests-draconian-pandemic-powers-bill.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=e1ffbdb%3A1614796141937&width=550px
Protesters were met with a heavy police presence “to ensure the safety of the community and no breaches of the peace,” but interestingly – for now – in contrast to previous protests in the city,despite breach the law limiting outdoor gatherings to just 30 people, police did not appear to have a forceful presence and it is unclear if any arrests were made.
“My enraging experience with being forced to get the vaccine,myocarditis, and the refusal of doctors to help me.”
“Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis is inflammationof the lining outside the heart. In both cases, the body’s immune system is causinginflammation in response to an infection or some other trigger (like a “vaccine?”)
Symptoms can include chest pain, shortness of breath, or palpitations.
The account of a 22-year-old male.
Makow comment– Before MDs were just drug dealers. Now they are killers.
On Tuesday I decided to comply and get the vaccine because I didn’t want to lose my career. I love my job and am very excited for what’s coming next for me. I got the 1st dose of the pfizer vaccine.
On Wednesday, I went to urgent care because along with the other expected side effects I was experiencing bad shortness of breath to the point where getting dressed had me exhausted to the point where I needed to sit down and rest.
I also had chest pain/discomfort/pressure surrounding my heart area (it feels like there is a rock in my chest that is slightly oversized for the space it occupies).
The doctor there did an EKG which came back with signs of heart inflammation but was otherwise normal.
She discharged me saying I had signs of myocarditis after receiving the vaccine and told me to go to the ER immediately so they could check for other signs that she was unable to do herself.
Fast forward — the ER doctor was very dismissive. He told me I “did the right thing” getting the vaccine repeatedly.
He told me my symptoms could be a muscle strain or acid reflux, and also said maybe I have covid (though he did not test me).
I purposely did not tell him I had covid before because i suspected they would try to tell me my condition was from that instead.
I was discharged after bloodwork, chest x-rays and a CT scan.
On Friday I followed up with a primary care doctor. I needed to get it in writing that I should delay or forego completely the 2nd dose; otherwise my employer will still make me comply.
This doctor informed me that my ekg did show signs of heart inflammation and that my blood platelets were high.
These are indicators of inflammation and clotting. He referred me to a cardiologist and agreed that I should wait to get the 2nd dose until consulting with him.
I asked him to provide me written documentation of this as well as his recommendation that I should wait at least 1.5 months for the 2nd dose, otherwise I will be fired.
He said okay “no problen I will be right back”
When he returned to the room:
Him: “So I talked with my supervisor and we aren’t allowed to provide that documentation except for in extreme circumstances”
Me: “So what you’re saying is I basically need to be having a heart attack for you to write your recommendations on the vaccine down?
Me: “If I was sent to the ER with these exact symptoms after receiving the flu vaccine, would your recommendation be that I never get that vaccine again in my entire life?”
Me: “It is utterly pathetic that you cannot document in writing what you just recommended to me 5 minutes ago”
Him: “I agree”
Me: “Well then can you give me the name of a doctor who can?”
Throughout this conversation he blinked a lot and avoided eye contact. I could tell he was fighting his own moral battle about keeping his own job versus doing the right thing. There are bearucratic pressures influencing the quality and accuracy of the care we are getting from our doctors. I have lost complete and utter trust for our medical providers. This doctor told me to my face that he was not ALLOWED to help me.
For those who may ask I am a 22yo male. This (Reddit Conspiracy) is the only community I thought would even listen to my story.
Brian Dressen, Ph.D., who is a chemist with an extensive background in researching and assessing the degree of efficacy in new technologies, told the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Pfizer’s vaccine“failed any reasonable risk-benefit calculus in connection with children.”
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) advisory committee on Tuesday endorsed Pfizer’s COVID vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, despite strong objections raised during the meeting by multiple scientists and physicians.
Brian Dressen, Ph.D., is one of the scientists who testified during the 8-hour hearing.
Dressen is also the husband of Brianne Dressen, who developed a severe neurological injury during the Utah-based portion of the U.S. AstraZeneca COVID vaccine trial in 2020. After being injured by the first dose, Brianne withdrew from the trial.
During his 3-minute testimony, Dressen, a chemist with an extensive background in researching and assessing the degree of efficacy in new technologies, told the FDA advisory panel Pfizer’s vaccine “failed any reasonable risk-benefit calculus in connection with children.”
“Your decision is being rushed, based on incomplete data from underpowered trials, insufficient to predict rates of severe and long-lasting adverse reactions. I urge the committee to reject the EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] modification and direct Pfizer to perform trials that will decisively demonstrate that the benefits outweigh the risks for children. I understand firsthand the impact that you will or will not have with the decision you’re going to make today.”
Dressen told the FDA how his wife was severely injured last November by a single dose of a COVID vaccine administered during a clinical trial. He said:
“Because study protocol requires two doses, she was dropped from the trial, and her access to the study app deleted. Her reaction is not described in the recently released clinical trial report — 266 participants are described as having an adverse event leading to discontinuation, with 56 neurological reactions tallied.”
He said he and his wife have since met participants from other vaccination trials — including Pfizer’s trial for 12- to 15-year-olds — who suffered similar reactions and fate.
“Injured support groups are growing. Memberships number into at least the tens of thousands. We must do better. Those injured in a trial are a critical piece of vaccine safety data. They are being tossed aside and forgotten. The FDA has known first-hand about her case and thousands of others. The FDA has also stated that their own systems are not identifying this issue and that VAERS is not designed to identify any multi-symptom signals. The system is broken.”
Dressen said his family’s lives have changed forever. “The clinical trials are not appropriately evaluating the data,” he said. “The FDA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the drug companiescontinue to deflect the persistent and repeated cries for help and acknowledgment, leaving the injured as collateral damage.”
“Until we appropriately care for those already injured, acknowledge the full scope of injuries that are happening to adults, please do not give this to kids. You have a very clear responsibility to appropriately assess the risks and benefits to these vaccines. It is obvious that isn’t happening.
“The suffering of thousands continues to repeatedly fall on deaf ears at the FDA. Each of you hold a significant responsibility today and know that without a doubt, when you approve this for the 5 to 11-year-old’s, you are signing innocent kids and uninformed parents to a fate that will undoubtedly rob some of them of their life.”
In an interview with KUTV on Tuesday, Brianne said her kids will not receive a COVID-19 vaccine if approved. “I will react to the vaccine regardless of the brand, and so if my kids have this same genetic makeup, there is the high potential now that the same thing could happen to them,” she said.
Since his wife’s injury — diagnosed by doctors at the National Institutes of Health — the Dressens have met with other trial participants and families with children who also believe they were injured by the COVID vaccines. They formed a support group and website called, C19 Vax Reactions, to share their stories of vaccine injuries.
On June 26, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) held a news conference to discuss adverse reactions related to the COVID vaccines — giving individuals, including Brianne, who have been “repeatedly ignored” by the medical community a platform to share their stories.
According to KUTV, the group continues to push the FDA and CDC for answers and help. Largely ignored, they reached out to Utah Senator Mike Lee, who wrote a letter to the CDC and FDA on their behalf.
For those less enthused, it’s nearly impossible to go a day without encountering the pandemic pimp. His image is plastered on magazines, books, and documentaries. Mainstream mediaportrays him as a selfless humanitarian dedicated to the betterment of societal wellness.
Yet for over half a century the diabolical doctor paved a career through deceit, fraud, coercion, and crime. Hiding behind the unsuspecting grandfatherly figure is a maniacal sadist who’s achieved levels of evil beyond comprehension.
Has Never Seen A Patient
Fauci was born into a family with close ties to Big Pharma. His parents, Stephen and Eugenia, both held medical degrees and owned a successful pharmacy in New York City. From a young age, he learned that prescription drugs bring in infinite revenue if the consumer remains ill. With large sums of cash generated from their lucrative enterprise and numerous industry ties, Anthony was guaranteed the best education.
Upon completing his residency in 1968, the inexperienced doctor was immediately offered an associate position with the National Institutes of Health. Since adopting a profession in bureaucracy over five decades ago, Anthony Fauci has never worked as a general physician or even met with an actual patient.
Congress cited Fauci’s agency in 2005 after they repeatedly violated federal law. NIH staff performed heinous experiments on illegally seized orphans throughout the United States. Thousands of vulnerable children were used as human lab rats and injected with Gates Foundation-funded vaccines. Hundreds died or suffered debilitating chronic side effects as a result.
According to government documents, injuries ranged from seizures to paralysis. Appallingly, the demented mad scientist knew no borders. Other geographic locations including Africa and India were terrorized with inhuman treatments perversely concealed as charitable assistance. Minors and pregnant women appear to be the preferred target of these horrific studies.
From October 2018 until February 2019, Fauci spent $1.68 million on sickening animal testing. Scientists obtained 44 beagle puppies and cut their vocal cords to prevent barking. Then the innocent creatures were infected with parasitic biting flies which slowly ate them alive.
Over the course of several agonizing months, each pup received daily infusions of toxic chemicals. FOIA papers detail how the canines constantly whimpered in pain before they were finally euthanized.
NIH officials claimed the studies performed were required for FDA submissions, however, no mandate exists.
Another ongoing project involves drilling holes into the skulls of 4,000 monkeys. Acid is injected while the primates are abused and terrorized.
It appears Fauci loves to torture living beings because he’s truly a psychopath.
Conflicts Of Interest
Head of the Presidential Commission of Bioethics is a woman named Christine Grady. She just so happens to be Anthony Fauci’s wife. Her department is directly responsible for clinical trials required for FDA approval.
Both husband and wife are involved in the endorsement, production, and distribution of coronavirus inoculations. Their combined efforts created the Moderna shot which has already raked in billions of dollars. Grady uses her earnings to fund democratic candidates.
In fact, she contributed donations to the Biden Campaign while her spouse advised Donald Trump with erroneous information. When it comes to corruption, the apple does not fall far from the family tree. Tony and Christine’s daughter Alison works for the social media empire Twitter, a company known for circulating propaganda and canceling anyone exposing lies.
In 1984 Fauci was appointed Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases. HIV coincidentally emerged only a few short months later. A new business venture blossomed seemingly overnight. The conniving doctor utilized scare tactics on citizens by falsely stating AIDS could be spread without physical contact. He vowed to come up with a vaccine to eradicate the disease.
Over 35 years and more than a trillion taxpayer dollars later, the nation is still waiting. Similar strategies were implemented with epidemics that followed: instill fear, conceal information, inflate the figures, then lobby for pharmaceutical manufacturers. With each ‘outbreak’ of viruses such as H5N1, Swine Flu, and Zika, Fauci’s organization consolidated power while he received massive kickbacks.
Throwback to the Swine Flu Hoax: SAME Script, SAME Tactics, SAME Players — 10 Years Prior to COVID-19 They Tried the Same But Failed.
Fauci is the highest-paid government employee and earns nearly half a million dollars annually. With such a tremendous salary one would assume an outstanding job performance.
However, since he joined the civil sector, Americans have become increasingly unhealthy. Prescription drugs are now the third leading cause of death in the United States. Many of these medications were developed by his very own institution: the NIH.
In recent times he pushed for unnecessary draconian lockdowns which attributed to countless suicides and fatal overdoses. Through Fauci’s inconceivable coronary guidance, vast amounts of these deaths fraudulently registered as COVID-19 fatalities.
With exaggerated numbers and discrediting alternative treatments, Tony used the Emergency Use Authorization to push through his profitable Moderna immunization. Follow the money trail you will see those who have the most to gain are responsible for orchestrating current events.

A “Trojan Horse” Sin
Please understand that I don’t condemn anyone, for the Bible condemns all of us as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners. It is not my place to judge. My salvation solely rests in Christ’s righteousness, because of the precious blood that He gave for our sins. My intention is not to be unkind; but rather, to expose the demonic nature of pornography.
There is no greater evil in the world than that of pornography! Sadly, our mentally-ill American society honors pornographers and has legitimized the business as an industry. Pornography is a Trojan horse sin, because it opens the door to many other sexual sin. Pornography causes lasciviousness (sexually addiction). It opens one’s soul to demonic influences. The Bible says in John 3:20 that it is love for sin which prevents sinners from coming to Jesus Christ for salvation… “lest his deeds should be reproved.”
Tragically, pornography is legal in America and most places today. Pornography turns people away from God and His Holy Word. Most people automatically associate the word “pornography” with total nudity; however, the evil influences of “soft porn” (partial nudity) are equally damaging. America has become a cesspool of iniquity.
Whereas women are aroused by TOUCH, men are aroused by SIGHT. Of course, this is no secret. I won’t spend a lot of time in this article trying to explain all the things wrong about pornography, because it is self-evident. Any idiot knows what’s wrong with pornography. I simply want to do my part as a born again Christian to take a Biblical stand against this woeful evil of our time. Pornography is a Trojan horsesin… from it spawns fornication, wife beatings, rapes, adultery, child porn, pedophilia, homosexuality, and every other Godless form of immorality imaginable. And now some sick-minded entrepreneurs are selling porn on people’s cellphones.
Psalm 19:7, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”
Judgment is Coming Upon America!
Pornography did not exist until the invention of the camera came along. Think about this for a moment. The Old Testament cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were so wicked that God decided to DESTROY them (and they didn’t have any pornography!). Can you imagine what God thinks about America today? Same-sex marriages? SIN CITY? Abortion? America is a wicked nation of arrogant, stiff-necked people, rebelling against the Lord God. More smut flows out of America than any other nation on earth.
Not surprisingly, Chicago even named one of it’s streets in honor of reprobate Hugh Hefner (founder of Playboy). I don’t condemn the man, for the Bible condemns all of us as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners; but Mr. Hefner’s Playboy is of the Devil. I’m reminded of Frank Sinatra’s wicked words in the song Chicago…”The town Billy Sunday couldn’t shut down.” Well, God’s going to shut it down someday!
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” —Jude 1:7
Jesus Condemned Pornography
Adultery of the heart may not seem as bad to you as the actual act of adultery, but it is in God’s eyes…
“For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven…Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” —Matthew 5:20,27,28
Mankind often forms his own conclusions about right and wrong, without regard for the Bible; but the Word of God has already removed most of the grey areas for us. The Bible is not vague on the issue of pornography. The Word of God clearly condemns ALL forms of sexual sins. Pornography (whether it be hard porn or soft porn) leads men into sexual sins. Notice in Matthew 5:28 the words “WITH HER.” A woman who dresses immodestly is guilty of adultery as much as the man who commits the act in his mind. She is causing men to lust by her immodest apparel.
The Pharisees were GUILTY of many sins, but they were self-righteous and didn’t see themselves as being sinful. even though they were self-righteous in their own eyes. The Pharisees were religious phonies. I have worked with numerous Catholic men in my working career and nearly ALL indulged in pornography. I used to work next to a Filipino man that would pray the Rosary and then shamelessly pull out a Playboy Magazine to lust upon. I’m not condemning these men, I’m simply saying that pornography has become acceptable to many people; but God said it is a sin. How can one pray the Rosary and then look at pornography? Then again, the Rosary is just as wicked as pornography, it is also of the Devil. Mary Worship is demonic.
Jesus clearly taught that such phony religion leads to hell. Unless a person has the righteousness of God, which is only found in Jesus Christ, they CANNOT go to heaven. The ONLY way to have God’s righteousness is by becoming “born again” through faith in Christ Jesus.
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” —2nd Corinthians 5:17
The righteousness of God that a person needs to be saved IS Jesus Christ Himself. When we trust upon Christ for the forgiveness of our sins, God’s Holy Spirit comes to indwell (live) within our soul. We are then a child of God.
Again, the Word of God clearly condemns ALL forms of sexual sins, including lust…
“But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” —Matthew 5:28
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” —1st Peter 2:11
Child Pornography is Epidemic Worldwide
When I lived in Chicago, I received this junk advertisement (pictured to the right) in the mail in April of 2004. I was sickened by what I saw and thought I’d comment about it. How wicked! It’s bad enough that there’s creeps and perverts in this world who prey on innocent people, but now companies like this make a joke out of it. I saw a McDonalds about the same time with a sign in the window, “Get your Big Mac RIGHT HERE!” It is tragic that America’s trash pop culture has corrupted our once good morals. Americans are very dirty-minded.
Increasingly, companies are willing to do anything to make more money. The advertisement to the right is from a new health club opening up in Chicago. It is disturbing to any morally concerned person… it’s sick! When anyone talks about stealing someone’s innocent, they’re talking about youth.
The technological revolution has enabled mankind to travel much further down the road he was already travelling. Sadly, the heart of humanity is inherently evil as Jeremiah 17:9 in the Old Testament warns… deceitful above all else, who can know it?
Sleazy pornographers have been trying to get the Supreme Court to legalize virtual child porn, that is, child pornography generated on a computer that is not real. The fact of the matter is that a person would not be able to tell the difference between virtual child porn verses actual children being filmed by pornographers. The end result would be devastating for children. Our founding fathers never intended freedom of speech in the First Amendment to protect criminals and perverts who corrupt society with pornography. There is no evil in this world any more despicable than child pornography. Existing laws go after individuals who aren’t familiar with online stings, harsh laws and police predators; but nothing is ever done to go after the producers of such filth. America’s television network owners and producers are some of the worst offenders, yet the law protects Zionist Jewish criminals.
The nature of pornography is to target youth. Clothing magazines have been photographing children in their underwear for decades, which is a form of child pornography. No one, especially Christian men, ought to look in clothing catalogs because of the indecent women and girls displayed in them. God pity the man who browses through a Victory Secrets catalog or Sports Illustrated. No man has a God-given right to view such adulterous imagery. And may I say, women ought not view naked young girls either. America’s irresponsible attitude toward virtue, modesty and decency has created a generation of sexual degenerates devoid of morality. Today women wear their dresses up, and men their pants down.
Small girls are photographed in fashion model style, looking like Broadway whores, even photographed in sexually suggestive scenes. This type of debauchery is considered normal in American society today. It’s wickedness to almighty God. Stupid mothers think it’s harmless for their young daughters to run around in colored underwear, simply because it’s a bathing suit. It is immodesty! I read on the front page of the local newspaper about a grade school brat, strutting her stuff at dancing class, wearing a miniskirt. Hundreds of parents viewed, clapped their hands and thought it was cute. They are sick-minded heathens missing God in their lives. America has deteriorated into a cesspool (sewer outlet) of iniquity.
Do not be deceived, there’s no difference between child porn and porn morally… porn is porn! The very nature of pornography is to corrupt innocence, violate virtue and corrupt good morals. This is why NAMBLA exists. People who think pornography over a certain age is ok are playing with spiritual dynamite. Man’s perverted laws legalize same-sex marriage, the killing children by abortion, gambling casinos, drunkenness, pornography and a host of other evils.
It matters not what men may say, God’s Laws are all that matters. If you obey God’s laws, then you won’t need man’s laws. The Bible says that the Law is for them who break it. Those who live by the Spirit of God, by the law of love, don’t need a law to force them to do what is right in God’s eyes. Love is the fulfillment of the Law, that is, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Jesus commanded in Matthew 7:12 to DO UNTO OTHERS… as you would have them do unto you. This is The Golden Rule!
Psalms 119:9, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?
by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
The Day Moses Got Mad
I heard a woman on the news say that she was a “Christian stripper.” She said that Adam and Eve were created naked by God, so she was not ashamed to display the beauty of God’s creation either.
- First of all, Adam and Eve were the only two people on the planet at the time. That’s not too hard to figure out.
- Secondly, the Bible says they put clothes on when they realized they were naked. Genesis 3:7, “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
- Thirdly, the Word of God clearly prohibits looking a upon the nakedness of someone outside of marriage (Read Leviticus 20).
The Israelites were a rebellious bunch. While Moses was up on the mount receiving the Ten Commandments (and begging God to give the people a second chance), the Israelites were dancing around a golden calf NAKED down below. Moses pleaded with God up on the mountain to give the people a second chance, and the Lord agreed. So what do you think went through Moses’ mind when he got back down to the camp? On the way down towards the camp, Moses became concerned when he began to hear the sound of “NOISE” (Exodus 32:17,18). Today it is called “Rock ‘N’ Roll.” Can you imagine how Moses felt when he returned with the TEN COMMANDMENTS, and saw the people dancing naked around an idol? I mean, Moses had just finished begged God not to destroy the people in His divine anger… and now they do this! Moses also became VERY angry…
“And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it…And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:) Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour. And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men…And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.-Exodus 32:19,20,25-28,31
Moses saw the people dancing around a golden calf naked and became VERY angry! Moses wasn’t angry at the people, he was angry at their sin… “and when Moses saw that the people were NAKED!” Moses didn’t have to see anymore to know that it was time for some serious camp-cleaning. Moses made the people choose sides. At least three thousand people died that day, because they chose the Devil’s side. It is clear that God does NOT tolerate such wickedness. Whether the nakedness of an actual human being, or a photo of them… it is wicked! God HATES pornography!!!
The same people who laugh at what I’m saying are the same ones who see no harm in aborting babies, partying in SIN CITY and living like the Devil. Certainly, there is NO perfect Christian, but God expects us with His help to at least make an attempt to obey His Laws. We are not saved by keeping the Law; but rather, we keep the Law because we are saved. The Law’s purpose is to show mankind his sinfulness and hopeless condition, and then point that man to the Savior for forgiveness and salvation (Romans 3:20; Galatians 3:24-25).
Exploiting Freedom Leads to Apostasy
Apostasy and pornography go together. When people get away from God, they start taking their clothes off. There was a day in America when nearly ALL women wore dresses (before TV came along). A woman who wore a pair of pants 100 years ago was considered a whore. Today, women who wear dresses are often looked down upon with contempt by other women. They’re jealous! They want the femininity which they’ve lost, but can’t have it and still be the feminist she-men they are. You can’t have it both way ladies. Women today have lost their femininity because of feminism and pornography in society. Pornography cheapens a woman’s worth in society.
We are surrounded by perversion in America. The Apostle Paul addressed the perversion of his time as well…
“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” —Philippians 2:15
America is certainly a CROOKED and PERVERTED nation! The total extent to which America has been corrupted and perverted is beyond the scope of this article, but America is definitely a sex-perverted nation. American TV, movies, satellite, and cable display some of the most indecent forms of sensual smut. Most TV programming is of the devil.
It’s not surprising at all why America has been labeled as the “Great Satan” by Muslims. We certainly can’t argue with them. Look at what our nation has become. America is going down the road of destruction FAST. China actually banned sexual advertising in 2007…
China Bans Sexually Suggestive Ads on Radio, TV
Thursday, September 27, 2007
China’s broadcasting watchdog has banned all sexually suggestive advertising on radio and television. Commercials featuring sexually suggestive language or behaviour or featuring scantly dressed women were “detrimental to society,” the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) said in a circular on Tuesday.
All stations are prohibited from broadcasting commercials and programs involving drugs, sex-related health supplements, drugs for sexually transmitted diseases, sex toys, as well as “vulgar” ads for breast enhancement and female underwear, according to the circular.
Commercials in which celebrities testify to the effects of products are also banned, reports Xinhua. The SARFT also ordered an end to programs with names including sex-related drugs, products or medical institutions.
“Sexually suggestive ads and bad ads not only mislead consumers seriously and harm public health, but are socially corrupting and morally depraving, and directly discredit the radio and TV industry,” the circular said. In July this year, the SARFT released a notice to stop ads with inappropriate content or sex implications from appearing on TV screens.
A total of 1,466 ads involving two billion Yuan (US$267 million) have been removed since August, statistics from the SARFT showed. The administration warned stations that failed to monitor the quality of commercials and programs would face severe penalties. Since September 5, China’s broadcasting watchdog has punished ten radio stations for talk shows involving sexual topics.

I read about an ordained lesbian minister who was called to pastor a Baptist church in Tennessee. Then I found out that Christianity Todayis endorsing Harry Potter’s witchcraft. Then I learned that the homosexual community has proudly published their own Bible, the New Orthodox Annotated Bible (it removes all references condemning homosexuality). I just read about a new show on NBC called “Medium,” which will further promote the Devil’s New Age religion. Search Google for “Wicca Bible” and you’ll find it for sale. America is today an apostate nation! Our days are numbered as a free country.
BOTH men and women are to blame for the evils of pornography. You CAN’T say that women are being exploited, because they willingly strip naked to be photographed for money. What is being EXPLOITED is our freedom, and Americans are the one’s exploiting it. God never intended for us to take advantage of His goodness by corrupting the blessings which He has given to us. From the wicked woman who takes her clothes off, to the wicked person who photographs her, to the wicked 7-11 or convenient store owner and clerk that sells the dirty magazines, to the person who buys the naked photos—they are all accountable to God for their wickednesses.
And I should add, it is just as wicked for women to look at male pornography. Playgirl magazine is equally wicked to God. Hell will be hot!!! America has sunk so low spiritually that the average man doesn’t even think twice about indulging in pornography these days. Pornography is an abomination unto God Almighty! Zionist Hollywood and the Godless entertainment industry are intentionally corrupting our youth. In order for the Illuminati to completely overthrow the U.S., the family unit must be destroyed, patriotism must be abolished and Christianity must go! You say, why are they doing this? The answer is that they are preparing the world to receive the coming man of sin, the Antichrist! America’s national borders are being dissolved. The world’s religions are embracing ecumenism, coming together by sharing a common philosophy that there are many paths to God. It is Satanic philosophy! Lucifer is the god of this evil world!
Likewise, sexual immorality is deliberately being promoted by the music video industry and Hollywood, to destroy the traditional family. Communist dictator Vladimir Lenin said that the best revolutionary is a youth devoid of morals. Hence, now you know why they are corrupting our youth in America, raising up a generation of revolutionaries. These youth will abandon Christianity, reject Jesus Christ, and embrace the New World Order. Pornography is a key ingredient to their spiritual demise. Today’s music videos by Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry are nothing but porn videos. They’re snuff films! All three of the whores I just mentioned promote the homosexual agenda in their music and videos. It is evil!!!
Again, I do not condemn anybody, for the Bible condemns all humanity. I am just standing up for the Lord.
Effects of Pornography are Like Asbestos Poisoning
Few people realize the dangers of pornography because it’s effects aren’t always immediate. In fact, it’s damage often lasts a lifetime. Asbestos is a substance which was extensively used for decades in heating insulation, floor tiles, clutches, brake linings, and hundreds of other products. Until OSHA came along in 1970, no one really took any precautions to protect themselves against breathing asbestos dust. Asbestos is very popular because of it’s ability to withstand extreme heat.
In fact, the space shuttle has used outer tiles made of asbestos to protect the shuttle during re-entry. Unfortunately, asbestos is very dangerous. Once you breath asbestos dust… it NEVER leaves your lungs. Asbestos goes in, but it never comes out. It’s ill-effects last a lifetime. Asbestos is an extremely hazardous substance. So hazardous that special suits and breathing apparatus need to be worn to clean it up.
Likewise, pornography contaminates a person’s mind for life. Once a man’s mind is corrupted, it can never be the same as it once was. Yes, a man can find forgiveness in Christ Jesus. Yes, a man can still serve God. Yes, a man can once again have a decent mind. However, a man who has willingly compromised his integrity by indulging in pornography WILL have scars for life. Just as asbestos leaves scar tissue in the lungs, so does pornography leave scars on the soul. Men who have indulged in pornography have more than likely also indulged in prostitution or other sexual sins. Such activities cause a man to be far more vulnerable to commit the same sins again in the future.
Young people should NOT sow their wild oats! Sowing your wild oats will only create an unquenchable appetite. Once you’ve been DESENSITIZED to the sinfulness of sexual sins, then you WILL likely struggle with it for the rest of your life. This is the danger of young girls idolizing tramps such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, or Hilary Duff… they’re being mentored by sleazy whorish women. No wonder sexual sins are skyrocketing in America! Turn on Fox News and that’s all you hear nowadays… one sexual crime after another. The pornography industry and the music industry are inseparably related. The average music video is nothing but pornography. Women don’t have to be completely naked to commit the sin of pornography.
In fact, a woman who is gyrating or lying down in tight clothing can be just as arousing as a completely naked woman. HEE HAW was one of the most evil shows in TV history. Who’s kidding who? ALL modern marketing companies KNOW that “sex sells” and they’re using every form of sexual perversion and wickedness permissible to sell their products. The bar (standard of ethics) keeps dropping. The Devil has used cable TV and internet as a means of bringing more pornography into America’s homes.
The Root of All Evil
If it weren’t for the love of money, Hugh Hefner never would have been able to publish his filthy pornographic smut in America since 1954. The fueling evil behind pornography is the love of money. In fact, 12% of total internet websites are now pornographic. It’s all about money. Internet porn has become an epidemic problem. Adult content on mobile devices will be worth $3.3 billion by 2011, up from $1.4 billion this year, according to industry analysts Juniper Research. Europe is the biggest spender on porn, due to both its appetite for smut and the relatively high-priced nature of adult content. The Asia-Pacific region follows in second place. Tragically, it is estimated that U.S. citizens account for 25 percent of child sex tourism worldwide, and as high as 80 percent in Latin America. God bless America? No way!
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” —1st Peter 2:11
Bringing Every Thought into Captivity Unto Obedience to Christ
2nd Corinthians 10:5, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
You can live right in the new millennium! Fidelity may be the old fashioned way, but it’s also the “right way.” The wayward life of king Solomon in the Old Testament (the richest and wisest man in the world at the time) should speak volumes to men today about sex. Solomon had sex with at least 1,000 women yet the Bible says he was miserable. In fact, Solomon said he hated life (Ecclesiastes 2:17). Everything a man could want and he hated life? Yes, that’s true!
You see, Solomon fed his sexual appetite to his heart’s desire, but he still couldn’t find satisfaction. Solomon is found seeking a soul mate in the Biblical book of Song of Solomon. We find Solomon (who pictures the Devil) seducing the Shulamite girl (who pictures the Christian) in the Biblical book of Song of Solomon. The Shulamite girls said no to Solomon, because she was already betrothed to another. The Devil tries to tempt us away from Christ, but we need to tell old smut face that we already belong to Jesus, our precious Savior.
Listen friend, there is NO deliverance from pornography apart from the soul-cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. All pornography does is make you extremely frustrated. Why frustrate yourself? If you have company with prostitutes, then you may be arrested or end up in a doctor’s clinic with a STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). Some STD’s have NO CURE (like herpes or AIDS). If you flirt with other women, you may get your teeth knocked out by a jealous boyfriend or husband. Think about that for a moment…no cure! You see, the Devil always shows us the neon lights and the nicely paved road. What Satan doesn’t show people is where the road leads. Satan doesn’t show us the skeletons rotting in his prison of addiction and suffering. The road to Hell is always paved with good intentions.
Crucify the Lusts of the Flesh
“Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” —Romans 6:6
Pornography is a destroyer of the soul. It stirs unholy lusts that CANNOT be fulfilled within the bounds of marriage. As it is commonly referred to, the “seven-year itch,” is when a man has grown bored of his lover (wife) and desires someone new. Naturally (and carnally), he longs for the affections and romance of ANOTHER woman. The same is true for some women, but mostly for men. The wise husband will spend more time working on a hobby or project to keep his mind preoccupied with good things. He will avoid movies and TV which are plagued with sensuality and provocative imagery. “Lasciviousness” is unhealthy sexual desire (addiction). The Devil’s gang works relentlessly to make you Lascivious in an attempt to take away your money. The internet is a dangerous place today.
Satan’s hidden agenda is to destroy your soul. The wise man (married or not) avoids situations where he will be exposed to improperly dressed women which stir sexual frustrations and temptations. He will love his wife and tell her so daily. And by the way, just because a man is not married does NOT give him a right to sleep-around or be promiscuous. Fornication is a horrible sin! If you have committed these sins, then be comforted in knowing that there is forgiveness for every sin in Christ Jesus (Acts 10:43). Jesus never condemned people for there sins; but rather, He forgave them and said, “GO AND SIN NO MORE,” lest a worse thing happen unto thee!!!
John 5:14, “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.”
John 8:10-11, “When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”
Colossians 3:5-6, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.”
Serving Jesus Will Bring Persecution
I have learned from complaining in the secular workplace that the wicked U.S. courts don’t recognize the term “pornography.” You have to use the term “INDECENT MATERIALS.” Years ago, I had been complaining about my heathen co-workers deliberately leaving MAXIMmagazine sensual centerfolds of whores upon on the break-room table to harass me. My male boss kept saying that they had a right to bring such materials into the workplace. So one night I picked up a stack a foot high of the perverted Maxim magazines and took them to a female supervisor in a different department. I didn’t say anything at first, just asking her to take a look at what I’m being forced to look at on a daily basis. Literally, her face turned red. I then told her that my boss didn’t care and was defending this type of filth in the workplace. She went to the big boss and the magazines disappeared!!!
As a Jesus-loving Christian, I’ve been physically attacked in the workplace, had my radio thrown and broken for playing Christian music, been spit upon, had equipment sabotaged that I was responsible for, had tools stolen from me, been jolted with electric shock, had whiskey bottles put in my tool box and Hustler dirty centerfolds hung in my locker. I’ve been physically choked by the neck, knocked to the ground, thrown up against trucks, had grease smeared on my toolbox, lied about, had a 3 pound hammer thrown at me, had my entire tool box thrown onto the floor, cursed in all manner of profanity, called “baby Jesus,” had my tool box hidden across the building, had the most ungodly rumors spread about me, had my lunch stolen, and my time cards torn up. I spent 2 1/2 years in an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint that led to a court case. The judge ruled in my favor, saying that I was the victim of racial and religious discrimination.
I’ve been harassed with veiled threats (co-workers stalking me to harass), shunned, ostracized, broke down in tears due to persecution, come home in tears, hid in bathrooms to avoid hostile co-workers, called the local police numerous times, left a few minutes early to avoid meeting hostile co-workers at the time clock, been told by my uncaring boss to “get out of the kitchen if I can’t take the heat,” mistreated, ignored, had a knife pulled on me, slandered, cursed and hundreds of others persecutions as a Christian. I’ve been threatened by co-workers, who said they knew where I lived and would kill me. That’s one reason I won my EEO complaint. The supervisor was sitting right there when the threat was made, and she did nothing, which she admitted to the judge. It’s often a nightmare for a faithful Christian to work in the secular workplace.
Yet, the Bible says that God wants us in the world, but not of the world, so that we may shine as a light for Christ in dark places (Matthew 5:16). John 17:15-16, “I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
When you shun dirty-jokes, smutty magazines and filthy magazines, you will likely be ridiculed. It all depends on the quality of the company you work for and the attitude of management. It also depends upon the caliber of people that you work with. Albeit, wherever you go in this world you will find the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21). I’ve learned that people are people are people. As a Christian I choose to love all people, whoever they are, with God’s unconditional love. I still pray for former co-workers, when I am reminded of them, knowing that they may not even be alive (but I still pray for their families and loved ones who are alive). I choose to pray for all the people that have been in my life, good and bad alike.
I know God is proud of me for letting my light for Jesus shine and that’s all that matters. 2nd Timothy 3:12-13, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” I have shared these things with you to help encourage you, that you are not alone if you are struggling as a God-fearing Christian in the secular workplace. If you are a worldly believer, the Devil’s crowd will leave you alone. But if you raise a flag for Jesus Christ and righteousness, wicked people will eat you alive!!!
The Dangers of Pornography
Pornography is extremely dangerous, adultery of the soul (Matthew 5:28), the core evil behind much murder, rape, torture and many heinous crimes. Matthew 5:28, “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” The word “adultery” in the Bible includes all forms of sexual immorality, including the sin of homosexuality. Pornography is of the Devil and can only lead to utter frustration and sexual sins. You’ll be worse off when the pleasures of sin are over (Proverb 20:17). Sin always thrills before it kills! Sin fascinates and then it assassinates!!! Pornography is nothing less than the lusts of the flesh. Nearly everyone will be dead in 100 years. What will anything matter then? Or even 50 years from now?
PORNOGRAPHY (a red-hot, needful, life-changing, MP3 sermon by Evangelist Dan Meaders)
Pornography is dangerous for several reasons:
- Porn leads to sexual sins which bring venereal disease, some incurable like herpes and A.I.D.S.
- Porn brings a society to ultimate ruin. Pornography is like a cancer, which spreads throughout the body, as dead tissue eats away living tissue. Wouldn’t it be great if teens were taught proper courtship before marriage. The Beach Boy’s great song, “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” is based upon courtship, and the young couple is thinking it would be great to BE MARRIED. Nowadays teens jump in bed having sex and skip courtship. They are parents at age 14 and 15. Many have abortions, some multiple abortions. Young men are not real men. They are slackards, irresponsible, bums and many go to prison. Porn plays no favorites, it is after everybody! Lust will destroy your life.
- Porn has a power that promises hidden fun and imaginable pleasures, which leave men in destruction, losing their wives, homes, children, futures and everything to this thing called pornography. Sin never satisfies permanently.
- Physical violence is produced by pornography. It makes people cruel. Violent crimes are often related to porn. Immorality promotes more immorality.
- Porn lowers women to the level of cattle. Instead of viewing women as the blessed vessel of the gift of life (a baby), pornography lowers them to be viewed as vaginas, a means of fulfilling a sexual appetite, a commodity to be used only when needed. A startling 9,000,000 Americans every day click on the internet for porn. Five million of them are men. 50% of them are married. Sin always undermines a nation!
- Porn unlocks unholy passions (lusts) in the heart of man. It is the preparation, motivation and instruction for committing all forms of atrocities. Like the medium of booze, porn is a medium through which the human heart is made susceptible to demonic possession.
- Porn destroys the soundness of the mind. Pornography will begin to pound at the door of your mind until it enters and then obtains the keys to your heart, opening doors to let unholy monstrous thoughts into your heart, things that you never thought imaginable!!!
- Porn often leads to suicide. A dirty-mind leads to dirty-living! GARBAGE IN = GARBAGE OUT! Proverb 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
- Last, but not least, because the Scriptures forbid looking at porn (1st Peter 2:11). In Matthew 5:28 Jesus warned that lust of the heart is no different than adultery with the flesh.
- Porn corrupts others, contributing to the destruction of society. When you support, purchase or view porn, you’re furthering the industry. You’re enabling them to go further and do more damage. Do you really want to do your part to help the porn industry? I want to burn it to the ground! When the Devil kicks me in the butt, I kick him in the groin! I hate indecency and am preaching against it.
King David didn’t just commit adultery. David saw Bath-Sheba bathing. I don’t believe for one second that Bath-Sheba innocently bathed naked on her roof. She wasn’t 5-years-old. She was a grown married woman. Women know exactly what they are doing. Women learn as teens to watch who’s watching them. She knew and deliberately enticed David. Bath-Sheba could have resisted and said she’d rather die than betray her husband. She willingly committed adultery. She seduced David and he took the bait. But David had a dirty mind and heart. After David repented he said in Psalms 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” As men we all need to continually ask God to give us a pure and clean heart. Abiding in the Scriptures will clean us. Psalms 119:9, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” Men can live pure in 2015!!! As you just read, the way to purity is to OBEY GOD’S WORD. As you obey, God will cleanse and purify your heart.
The first step of widespread sexual immorality in Noah’s day began with LOOKING. …
Genesis 6:1-2 and 5, “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. … And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
American society has deteriorated so much because of the heathen Playboy philosophy that pornographic magazines are now viewed as a healthy part of American culture. Hollywood movies all promote it. Convenient stores and 711 stores promote it. Newspaper stands promote it. Television promotes it. Cable TV promotes it. The internet promotes it. The music industry promotes it! Porn is everywhere, including in Hell where it came from!!!
Here’s a classic example, one of millions, of how pornography destroys the lives of good men. This man was a U.S. prosecutor in Florida, whose job was to prosecute criminals; yet he was arrested when he flew to meet a 5-year-old girl in Michigan for sex. Police arrested him with a child’s doll, some earrings and a jar of petroleum jelly. The man commit suicide in prison awaiting trial. If it can happen to prosecutors, preachers and presidents, it can happen to you too! Pornography will destroy your marriage, home and life…
John David Roy Atchison (August, 1954 – October 5, 2007) was an assistant U.S. Attorney in Florida’s northern district who gained notoriety when he was arrested for suspicion of soliciting sex from a 5-year-old girl.
Atchison was born in 1954 and held both a bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and a law degree from Cumberland Law School at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. He was admitted to the Florida Bar in June 1984 and the Georgia Bar in June 1985. Since the late 1980s, he worked in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Pensacola, Florida,  working on tax and financial crime cases. He was married to and had three children with Barbara Atchison and lived in Gulf Breeze, near Pensacola.
On September 16, 2007, Atchison was arrested at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport in a sex crime sting operation undertaken by the Macomb County Sheriff’s department. He was charged with “enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity using the Internet”, “aggravated sexual abuse” and “traveling across state lines to have sex with someone under the age of 12”. At the time of his arrest, he was carrying presents for his intended victim, including a doll and a pair of earrings. Also in his possession was a jar of petroleum jelly.
Following his arrest, he tried to kill himself via hanging with a sheet in his jail cell on September 20, 2007. Atchison had been removed from a suicide watch the previous day after assuring his lawyer and a judge that he would not harm himself. He was not injured in the suicide attempt, which another inmate reported about 4 a.m. On October 5, 2007, Atchison committed suicide by hanging himself in his prison cell.
That’s where porn leads. If you think you can handle porn, you’re a big fool!!! If you are so used to seeing porn that you think it doesn’t affect you anymore, you are deceived. Pride goeth before destruction! It seems so innocent at first. It’s just a photo. It’s just a dirty image. I tell you, that’s the Devil talking! Military soldiers who couldn’t be defeated in battle in war have been slain by pornography. Adultery will burn your life up!!!
When a man becomes addicted to sex, he no longer sees a little girl, a family member, a loved one or innocence; but rather, he sees a female, a vagina, an opportunity to satisfy a sexual need. A man in this frame of insane thinking is capable of committing the worst sins imaginable, even having sex with a baby. That is the reality of PORNOGRAPHY!!!
Most Indecency is Not on the Internet
Even men who don’t look at pornography are having lewdness and provocative lewdness shoved in his face everywhere he goes in American society today. Legally, “pornography” is not a recognizable term. Most people define porn as images of sexual intercourse (referred to as “carnal knowledge”). Any amount of nudity is not considered “porn” just so long as the male’s phallus is not shown. This is why Hollywood often shows a woman’s private area, but not the man. Of course, the Bible condemns all forms of sexual immorality. The Bible calls it “uncleanness” (anything of a sexual nature outside of marriage) and “evil concupiscence” (an immoral desire for sex outside of marriage). …
Colossians 3:5-6, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.”
A husband and wife can do anything they want in their own marriage bed, but whoremongers and adulterers (including fornicators and all sex outside of a marriage commitment) GOD WILL JUDGE. …
Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
It is tragic when you go to church and see women clothed in tight skirts, sensual attire and pants. This is the norm today in America because preachers have been compromised by American culture and no longer preach against sin. Every preacher in America ought to raise up his voice against the wickedness of public nudity, lewdness, immodest clothing on women and pornography!!! But as I mentioned, most indecency is not porn on the internet; but rather, it is everywhere we go in public today, where women dress provocatively.
Seeing a women poured into tight pants at the grocery store is just as tempting and dangerous as seeing pornography on the internet. Men are under attack. Many preachers recognize the dangers of pornography, but fail to see the danger of sensually unclothed women at the shopping mall or church. Sexual lust is caused by sight for men. Thus, it is extremely important for women to hide their breast cleavage, thighs and sexy shape. Many women laugh at what I say, who are the same women that fornicate, have abortions, divorce and then wonder why their life is so messed-up. It’s not that hard to figure out! Even if women dress properly, men will always still struggle with lust. It’s part of our human sin-nature. However, when women deliberately dress slutty, wear tight blouses, drawing attention to their body instead of their heart, it is wickedness in God’s sight. The Lord will judge every woman in eternity according to how she dressed and behaved on earth. Do you really think God doesn’t care about how you dress?
Indecency is in the shopping mall. Victoria’s Secret is no longer a secret! Porn is on every magazine! Porn is in all the professional sporting events. The cheerleaders lift their legs, open their skirts, showing their crotches and thighs. God only knows all the women raped, little girls molested, the broken marriages and wives beaten, all because of sluts like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Madonna, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Marilyn Monroe and all the other whores and devils on two legs. Jesus said in Matthew 12:36 that men will be held accountable for even their idle words. How much more shall God hold women accountable for intentionally causing men to lust and commit sin!!!
Pornography is coming into our homes through television, advertisements, movies, music videos and magazines. It’s also coming through the phones in the form of filthy communications, so people can fill their ears and hearts with unholy thoughts and filthy words. People dial 1-900 numbers to talk dirty with some 300 pound pervert on the other end of the line. Sexting has become popular amongst teens, sending filthy text messages to each other. And now “selfies,” teens taking cellphone photos of themselves naked and sending them to friends, has become very popular. What do you think God thinksabout this? You know what God thinks! Porn is in the newspapers. It’s in the commercials. It’s in business windows. It’s everywhere!!! You can’t name one thing that pornography hasn’t gotten a hold of these days. America is filled with every vile abomination!!! Judgment day is coming for America and the wicked world!!! (Isaiah 13:11).
Behind every picture is a child without a family. The churches don’t preach against pornography anymore, because we as a broken society are so used to it! Behind every dirty picture is a home destroyed. It looks so innocent. She’s half dressed, just making a living to feed her kids. Right? That’s the excuse that the Devil’s crowd use. God made Adam and Eve naked, so nudity must be OK. Right? Adam and Eve were the only two people on earth! Anything can be justified if you try hard enough.
Behind every dirty picture there’s a man in prison. Behind every picture is a divorce. Behind every picture is an abortion. Behind every picture is a suicide. Behind every picture is a drug-addict. Porn is a hot lava that is creeping across America, destroying everything in it’s path. Porn cannot be stopped! It’s not going away! The U.S. Supreme Court legalizes porn, permitting every American to have the right to display, view and promote porn!!!
And just as dangerous is the lewd woman who deliberately seduces men without immodest attire, dressing provocative for her own enjoyment, knowing that men are having a difficult time trying to live right, but she is selfish and only cares about her self. What do you think God is going to do to such wicked whores?
So what do men do? I look the other way! I think of Job’s covenant with his eyes not to lust. Job 31:1, “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?” I think about God’s Words in 1st Peter 2:11, where He calls lust a war against men’s souls. We are at war!!! Women can dress as slutty as they want, but I don’t have to look. If I see something I shouldn’t see, then I immediately look away and think about something else. I have a hatred for public indecency. I love Jesus and want to live right. I think about all the men rotting behind bars in prison for committing criminal sexual conduct, and for their sakes I turn away, look away and go away!!! U.S. society is like a giant mousetrap, baiting with cheese (lust), just waiting to break every man’s neck who goes for the bait. WAKE UP!!!
The Devil and Hell have joined forces with wicked men. Pornography wants every child, every teen, every grandfather, every man, every wife and every mother’s child!!! The Devil’s crowd want to torment us to death and turn America into Sodom and Gomorrah. Porn wants every virgin, not one virgin girl. That’s why they teach children sex perversion starting in grade school. Pornography wants to turn every youth and turn them into a violated pervert.
Genesis 6:2 and 5, “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. … And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Forbidden sins are now public pleasure!!!
Jude 1:17-19, “But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”
I’ve heard some men say that they cannot live without sex. The prisons are full of such men. …
2nd Peter 2:14, “Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children.”
Sex is an appetite, like eating. If you have sex regularly with your wife, then it is very easy for you to want more of it. Sex is pleasurable, which is a gift from God to be enjoyed only within the perimeters of a legal marriage. If you’re not careful, you can easily become addicted to sex. It is not healthy for a married couple to have sex every day! It’s not wrong, but it evidences unrestrained appetites that can easily lead to sinful desires. I am being your friend by teaching you this.
Just like one’s appetite for food, sex should be regulated, not any time and all the time. If you ate food everytime you had the slightest craving, you’d quickly become an obese glutton. In fact, that is why so many Americans are obese. Americans are out of control in their appetites for food, sex and materialism. Americans are in debt, overweight, perverted and a problematic people. This is what happens when people abandon God.
Listen once again to the inspired words of the Word of God…
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” —1st Peter 2:11
Pornography wars against the human soul. Degenerate Playboyfounder, Hugh Hefner, published his first filthy magazine in 1955 featuring the whore Marilyn Monroe, an evil woman who is burning in Hell this moment. God won’t be mocked! Did you know that internet pornography is now a $50,000,000,000 a year industry? FIFTY-BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!! And it’s only going to get much worse. YouTube contains much indecent videos, and children ought not be allowed to surf the internet without proper family filters activated. AlthoughStartPage search engine has its problems (like filtering good articles), it is great for children, because the family filter automatically is enabled. Also, StartPage doesn’t spy on users by collecting data. NEVER allow a child or teenager to use an unfiltered internet connection, because soft porn and indecent materials saturate cyberspace. The Huffington Post is filthy, and I won’t link to them anymore because of the lewd content.
All across America, it has become acceptable behavior for girls and women to strip naked at beaches, wearing 1% clothing. In many places, females take it all off, rinsing off completely naked in non-enclosed outdoor beach showers. Many women like to drop their bras in public at the beach and soak up the sun’s rays. This is horrible wickedness!!! We’ve got a bunch of stupid mamas in America! For some insane reason, women who would never walk butt naked on a beach feel confident wearing a G-string as they strut in the sand. Literally, they are wearing nothing except a string with an eye patch across their private area. They should all be in prison! Can any moron truly ask why criminal sexual conduct is so prevalent in the United States? The women walking around butt naked are as Godless as the men who ogle them. Low-cut blouses are sinful. Exposing a woman’s thighs is sin. Mini-skirts on girls is evil. No wonder pedophiles are everywhere!
America’s second U.S. President, John Adams, stated that the U.S. Constitution was only intended for a society restrained by moralityand religious beliefs…
“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams
The Bill Of Rights and U.S. Constitution only outline our God-given rights. If we disobey God, then we forfeit our right to liberty and freedom. Liberty is a gift from God, the privilege to make our own decisions. Freedom is the reward for making the right decisions. We have been making all the wrong decisions (banning the Bible, legalizing abortion, legalizing pornography, legal same-sex marriage, et cetera) that God is now removing our freedoms and liberties. America will become a totalitarian Police State over the next 25-years. I assure you of that!!!
As Christians, may we obey the Scriptures to love not the world, nor the lusts of the flesh…
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” —1st John 2:15-17
To die without Jesus Christ will be the worst thing you could ever do…
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE.” —Revelation 20:15
abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” —1st Peter 2:11
“That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” —2nd Thessalonians 2:12
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” —1st Corinthians 10:13

“The mark of the child of God is that he loves everybody!”
(a quote from Pastor Jack Hyles’ classic MP3 sermon, “FORGIVENESS”)
Brad Hambrick serves as the Pastor of Counseling at The Summit Church in Durham, NC. He also serves as Assistant Professor of Biblical Counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, a council member of the Biblical Counseling Coalition, has authored several books including God’s Attributes: Rest for Life’s Struggles, and served as general editor for the Becoming a Church that Cares Well for the Abused (churchcares.com) project.
Let’s begin with what should be an obvious point: there is no exclusive, causative correlation between viewing pornography and poor mental health. Meaning there are many individuals who do not view pornography and have mental health struggles. Further, it would be entirely inappropriate to work backwards from a mental health struggle to deduce that it is caused by the viewing of pornography.
The question this post poses–“how does viewing pornography impact someone’s mental health?”–is a contributive question, not a causative one. We want to consider, does the habit of viewing pornography add to or detract from the quality of someone’s mental health?
A second clarification is also needed. This post is not trying to make a moral argument (implying that pornography is wrong because it has a negative impact on mental health). Wrongness is determined by whether an action aligns with God’s character and design. That is a more important, but separate, issue from the question of this article. An action can be immoral and have no negative mental health effects. As far as we know, taking the Lord’s name in vain (violating the third of the Ten Commandments; Exodus 20:7) does not have any negative mental health effects.
An intended benefit from this reflection is the realization that God’s abstain for lust-based entertainment (Matthew 5:27-30) is an act of love–a means of protection intended to promote our flourishing, not a means of punishment to deprive us from something good. Too often the view we have of God as we think about pornography is as Him being against us and our joy instead of for us and our flourishing.
Now to the title of this post: What are six ways that pornography affects our mental health? Each of the effects below is a common “side effect,” if you will, of viewing pornography that has a negative influence on mental health. The degree of impact each point has on a given individual will vary from person to person for a variety of reasons.
No one feels as if viewing pornography is noble. Yes, there are teenagers who believe viewing pornography is “grown up” and may brag about it, or older individuals who view it as “necessary” or “common” and downplay the unrest in their soul. But no one feels like they have done a “virtuous-honoring thing” when they finish viewing pornography.
The result is a sense of guilt–an innate sense that what was done was bad. Guilt produces a decline in mental health and the physiological changes from guilt in the brain can be neurologically demonstrated.
For a highly habituated activity like viewing pornography, the options are clear: (a) turn off or dull the conscience to remove the sense of guilt, or (b) abstain from the guilt-provoking activity. The first option only further contributes to other choices that would further deteriorate mental health.
2. Isolation and Shame
The first point has to do with a sense of distance in our relationship with God. This point emphasizes the impact on our social relationships.
A common experience of viewing pornography is carrying a secret. Secrets create distance. We are left wondering “what would you think of me if you knew.” The result is that even our closest friendships begin to feel superficial or fake.
The depth and quality of our friendships are a significant factor in our mental health. Activities that lower the quality or number of our friendships have a negative influence on our mental health.
3. Crude-Depersonalizing Socialization
People (i.e., actors or models) in pornography are not people to the viewer; they are a collection of features or objects of satisfaction. In a pornographic world people are not heard, assisted, and love. People are evaluated, ranked, and consumed. When hours are spent immersed in this world, these values begin to seep in.
The logic is pretty clear, “If that is what I’m doing with everyone else, it must be what everyone else is doing with me. If I don’t rank, I don’t matter. I must associate with people who rank higher than I do in order to improve my rank. Life is a sport and there are far more losers than winners.”
The result is that it becomes increasingly difficult to see individuals as people with innate value.Instead, people are a collection of assets (height, weight, complexion, humor, power, etc…) each of which can be added together to determine their value. Living under this pressure and/or treating people this way has negative impact on one’s mental health.
4. Avoiding Unpleasant Emotions
One of the primary motives for viewing pornography is to reduce or relieve stress. A passive approach to stress management results in an underdeveloped capacity for managing unpleasant emotions. The less equipped we are to withstand unpleasant emotions, the more overwhelming each experience of anxiety, depression, or other distress becomes.
Add to this the idyllic narratives that are pervasive in pornographic material (the viewer always identifying with the central, pursued character), and the person who regularly views pornography is further conditioned to believe that the day-to-day, normal conflict in life and relationships are unbearable.
One important measure of mental health is our capacity to be resilient in the midst of unpleasant emotions or circumstances. Pornography detracts from this capacity both by serving as an escape from healthily processing unpleasant emotions and reinforcing the belief that these stresses should not exist.
5. Hyper-Multi-Sensory Stimulation
Mindfulness–the ability to willfully focus one’s attention during adverse circumstances–is a significant contributor to mental health. Pornography is nearly the complete opposite of mindfulness.
Pornography uses sound, sight, and tactile sensation to pull an individual from their actual world into an artificial, fantasy world. Combining multiple senses with an enticing narrative makes it increasingly difficult for less stimulating activities (which is most of life) to hold an individual’s attention.
If the previous point was about unpleasant emotions, this point goes further; now merely unstimulating activities are increasingly difficult to meaningfully engage for an extended period of time.
Consider how much of basic life management (i.e., budgeting, staying on schedule, honoring commitments, asking good questions in a mundane conversation, etc…) become difficult when we condition ourselves to avoid unpleasant emotions and mundane tasks. Then consider how doing a poor job at basic life management tasks negatively impacts one’s mental health.
6. Time Lost to Constructive Activities
The final point is more about what pornography prevents (indirect impact) than what it does (direct impact). Time spent viewing pornography is time not spent doing something more constructive (i.e., investing in hobby, talking to a friend, exercise, reading a book, etc…).
The more we invest in things that are meaningful and substantive the better our mental health will be. Pornography robs many people of their hours in their week when they would invest in these constructive pursuits and gives them nothing in return.
The more we engage in pornography the less time we have for good mental health habits.
A Final Question
Based on these observations it would make sense that an individual wanting to be a good steward of his/her mental health would abstain from viewing pornography. As you read through this list, the question you should ask yourself is, “When I have viewed pornography which of these effects have been most pronounced in my life?” The answer to this question should add to your motivation to honor God not only by abstaining from pornography but pursuing those things that would contribute to your purity and your mental health.
