National Porn Sunday?

National Porn Sunday? September 29, 2005

“I thought the Porn Sunday thing was going to blow up in my face,” says Gerry Michalski, pastor of Soul Sanctuary in Winnipeg, Canada. Instead, Michalski found his congregation was eager to hear about the spiritual effects of exposure to porn and hope for healing. After the church sponsored a Porn Weekend, Michalski says, “Everybody acknowledged that porn is a problem. We wanted to deal with the issue straight up.”

“Addictions of any sort, including pornography, set in motion a compulsion that interferes with daily life,” says Anderson, who previously ministered to students as a counselor at Judson (Ill.) College. “Suddenly, the day begins to revolve around that addiction. In the case of pornography addiction, nearly everything in the person’s speech and actions becomes sexualized, and everything they do is done through that sexualized screen. It becomes their god.”

Every day, nearly 40 million people visit one or more of 4.2 million porn sites the internet. At $6.2 billion yearly, porn revenue exceeds the combined revenues of ABC, NBC, and CBS. According to statistics at XXXchurch.com, nearly 50 percent of Christians say that pornography is a major problem in the home.
