It’s not just us “whacky right wing conservative Christian nut jobs” that think porn is a bad deal – the secular folks are waking up to the devastating effects of it as well. Below is a video originally posted on comedian and actor Russell Brand’s youtube page. In it he talks about the negative affects of porn in his own life and offers some staggering stats from some research type folks. Watch it and don’t watch porn.
If I compare myself to others less fortunate – poor, no legs, cancer – and say I’ll never complain again it will be short lived because it’s based on a shallow, under the sun, very temporary perspective. Plus the second they’re out of sight and out of mind and something starts bugging me I’ll be right back to griping my ding dang head off about nothing.
On the other hand, if I look at the bigger picture with a more eternal, God sized perspective I’ll see that what really brings me comfort, contentment, and a reason to not complain is not that I have legs, I’m not broke, and I don’t have cancer but the fact that Jesus has risen from the dead, He lives in me, He loves me, and this world is not the end all, be all of life. Its just the beginning of a kajillion Plus years of life to the fullest with Jesus.
I might be dumb as dirt and I might just be right.
