Job 31:1: Pornography and the Bible

Pornography has become a global epidemic and is rapidly spreading.

When the wife of Joseph’s master wanted to sleep with him, Joseph ran away: “and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, ‘Come to bed with me!'” (Genesis 39: 7; NIV)

He ran away and did not sleep with the married woman. We, too, should altogether avoid the temptations. Don’t think you are strong enough. Our flesh is weak (Matthew 26:41). Like Joseph, run away and avoid temptations.

“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.” (Job 31:1; NIV)

Need help? God wants to help you. You don’t have to be ashamed to come to your loving heavenly Father for help. Even with pornography, God wants to help you overcome it. You don’t have to fight this battle alone.
