Internet Pornography is the single worst cultural influence today in America.
Prior to the internet one had to drive to the local convenience store or adult bookstore and purchase it face to face with another person in the transaction. Today its influence is ubiquitous, freely available in every household in every neighborhood, in every city and state in America. Changing societal morals are evident as homosexuality, same sex marriage and more are gaining a plurality of acceptance.
Christianity is becoming more and more looked upon with disdain and disgust for not coming into the 21st century with the rest of society. Soon EVERY Christian will be forced to take a stand. Will you stand with Christ? or will you buckle to peer pressure and the desire to be accepted by your peers? As private Christian universities begin losing their tax exempt status for adhering to Biblical principles, how soon will your church be faced with loss of tax exemption for what is preached in the pulpit? Where will you stand?
