Porn, Women, & Home

Among the many communications we have received about the Home sermon series and Radical Impact Project, the most moving was an email I received from a woman in our church.

She shared about the impact of growing up in a home where her father watched and was ensnared by adult entertainment. 

I am the daughter of a man who was addicted to pornography.  It did not just harm him though as most would like to believe (another lie) – His actions and lack of discretion and supervision molded my life at a very early age and shaped it in such an unhealthy way.  I thought I would never escape that world of thought.  You see, viewing pornography at a tender age not only affects boys but girls as well.  It may not be that every image is seared in our brains- but it instantly rapes us of our innocence.  When little girls are exposed to pornography their dreams that they believe will one day be their reality- can no longer breathe the same air.  They often begin to think of themselves as an object and even ponder how to master it.  Next thing they know, men –mostly married men at that, are approaching them. She does not even want to marry someday if this is what she has to look forward to.  At a young age she will give away that which was meant only for her husband whom she did not know then deserved it so much.  She will wonder how she got to that point, and assume she can never turn back.
 
I am haunted by that line: it “rapes us of our innocence.”


As we provide a home that heals through On Eagles’ Wings Ministry, I pray we are allowing the Father to heal our homes.
