Lust or Love?

Lust or Love?

It doesn’t take a PhD to realize that sin destroys lives, relationships, and even health. That’s one of the reasons why the Bible forbids it. But our society pretends that things like lust aren’t a big deal. “As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else,” we hear, “it’s a victimless crime.” That’s what Kristina Helfer’s first entry of an new sex column for the Penn State Collegian tried to argue, a column which ironically debuted one month before revelations surfaced about assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

There’s no such thing as a “personal sin.” In fact, a new study published in Psychology Today proves that.

The study reports that young men who regularly view internet pornography actually lose their ability to function in real-world sexual relationships.

This isn’t surprising at all. Lust is selfish—it’s about me, my pleasure, and my demands. That’s what pornography offers, but it’s the exact opposite of love within marriage. Come to to read more about this landmark study. I’m John Stonestreet.
