Albert Mohler – Cultural Discernment from a Biblical Worldview

Another „older” video, from  the New Attitude Conference (Joshua Harris)(New name=NEXT Conferences), 2006 in Louisville, Kentucky,  yet still very relevant today.

Intro:

It would be very difficult to find any aspect of human life more powerful than sexuality… more powerful as an incentive, as an interest, an attraction, a fascination… a cauldron of trouble. That is why when you read the Old Testament, you come face to face with the fact that the people around Israel were actually demonstrating a basic pagan temptation and that basic pagan temptation is the worship of sex. That is how powerful sex is. And, that is how false these paganisms turn out to be, because, sex promises so much, but it doesn’t deliver on its promises.

From the introduction of  The Seduction of Pornography and the Integrity of Christian Marriagemade in an Address by R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of  The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Delivered to the Men of Boyce College March 13, 2004

“I have made a covenant with my eyes; How then could I gaze at a virgin?” Job 31:1

The intersection of pornography and marriage is one of the most problematic issues among many couples today—including Christian couples. The pervasive plague of pornography represents one of the greatest moral challenges faced by the Christian church in the postmodern age. With eroticism woven into the very heart of the culture, celebrated in its entertainment, and advertised as a commodity, it is virtually impossible to escape the pervasive influence of pornography in our culture and in our lives.

At the same time, the problem of human sinfulness is fundamentally unchanged from the time of the Fall until the present. There is no theological basis for assuming that human beings are more lustful, more defenseless before sexual temptation, or more susceptible to the corruption of sexual desire than was the case in any previous generation.

Two distinctions mark the present age from previous eras. First, pornography has been so mainstreamed through advertising, commercial images, entertainment, and everyday life, that what would have been illegal just a few decades ago is now taken as common dress, common entertainment, and unremarkable sensuality. Second, explicit eroticism—complete with pornographic images, narrative, and symbolism—is now celebrated as a cultural good in some sectors of the society.

Growing out of those two developments is a third reality—namely, that increased exposure to erotic stimulation creates the need for ever-increased stimulation in order to demand notice, arouse sexual interest, and retain attention.

The bottom line is that, in our sinfulness, men are drawn toward pornography and a frighteningly large percentage of men develop a dependence upon pornographic images for their own sexual arousal and for their concept of the good life, sexual fulfillment, and even meaning in life.

Mohler concludes:

The deliberate use of pornography is nothing less than the willful invitation of illicit lovers and objectified sex objects and forbidden knowledge into a man’s heart, mind, and soul. The damage to the man’s heart is beyond measure, and the cost in human misery will only be made clear on the Day of Judgment. From the moment a boy reaches puberty until the day he is lowered into the ground, every man will struggle with lust. Let us follow the biblical example and scriptural command that we make a covenant with our eyes lest we sin. In this society, we are called to be nothing less than a corps of the mutually accountable amidst a world that lives as if it will never be called to account.
