Just how bad is it?

I watched a PBS documentary the other day on the effects of pornography in America.  The show was brought to my attention awhile back through a friend but never got the chance to see it.  I knew pornography was getting bad but I had no clue until I did heard the evidence after watching the report. I was completely blown away and thrown back at how out of hand this industry has gotten.

The findings are incredible. Don’t think things are that bad? Check some of these statistics.

What does the Bible say?

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” -Galatians 5:16-21
