Guest: Heath Lambert, pastor and author, Finally Free

“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul…You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 11:18-19).

finallyfree150We live in a pornographic culture.  In the span of one generation (20-30 years), almost everything has changed with regards to the frequency and means by which we encounter pornography whether on cell phones, computers, video games, television, and movies.

As we discussed last week on the program, the explosion of pornography is a difficult—yet conquerable—temptation for adults.  But for children, additional strategies are critical to protect them from pornography and prepare them for when the inevitable exposure occurs.

That exposure begins, according to a survey by Covenant Eyes, before age 13 for 50% of boys and nearly 33% of girls.  Many other experts estimate the first exposure to be much earlier than that.

Heath Lambert, pastor, professor of biblical counseling, and author of Finally Free: Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace, will join us again this weekend to discuss a plan for protecting our children from and preparing them for pornography.

NOTE: We have copies of Heath’s book, Finally Free, available for a donation of any amount to The Christian Worldview.  Highly recommended!

Pornography and children.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

The explosion of pornography is a challenging—yet conquerable—temptation for adults.  But for children, additional strategies are critical to protect them from pornography and prepare them for when the inevitable exposure occurs.

That could be through the Internet, smart phone, video games, or when they are with friends.  While parents should do everything they can to delay a child’s first exposure, it is even more important that they are prepared for the first time they encounter it.

That means starting young and age-appropriate with regular discussions about God’s standards for modesty.  It means teaching them to divert their eyes away from immodesty as Job committed to do.

Hear all seven ways to prepare and protect your child from pornography at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, we’ll discuss the immigration crisis on our southern border.

Pornography is everywhere and impacting almost everyone. According to a Covenant Eyes study, “One out of eight searches on the Internet is for erotic content, more than 50% of boys and nearly a third of girls see their first pornographic images before they turn 13, and 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women say they are addicted to pornography.” Statistics are one thing, but the sexual immorality and ruined marriages that result from viewing pornography are the real-world, soul-crushing...

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer? How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing? For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.) 2. Abide in Christ.   John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer...
