Sometimes I look up porn, and I (personally) like it. However, I am Christian, and have heard it's a sin. Can someone tell me if it's really that bad?
Is It Normal?

If you profess to be Christian and have to ask if this or something else is a "sin", then you need to re-evaluate and redefine for yourself what your religion is for you. Taken at face value, ...yes, viewiing porn is a sin bacause it is Lust and lust is one of the seven deadly sins in Christianity. You can repent this sin through Christ but only if you are going to leave it behind you, because to repeat the sin over and over again and to enjoy it means you're not ready to discard this private pleasure.

It is normal to want to see other people make love, but WRONG. In porn they make it most exciting by getting professionals who do it so well on film. The girls are cute, guys well hung, and all with such stamina. That does not always happen in real life, and that's why porn is addictive.
Porn is a terrible poison. Kills self esteem as you feel you can never measure up to your girl's expectation. Or you may want your woman to do what you see in porn, and she simply can't. That pisses you off, and you set off in a journey to find the perfect woman, whom you never find, since she only exists in porn.

im not atheist or anything like that i mean my belief is that if god does exist and im not saying he does or doesnt he wouldnt want his creations grovelling over him and such like how annoying would it get if your kid did that every night before bed they prey to you for giving them food and stuff i mean i would feel modest like oh im not that great =] but it would get annoying. and if porn is a sin then by the time people under 40 die hell will be full and then it wont matter because we wont go there anyway! =]]]]

Your Lusting after a woman who is not your wife. It's not just a sin to your body but that girl will be married one day so your being adulterous as well.

As a Christian it will get in the way of u practicing ur faith the bible says if u so much as think of sinning its as bad as doing it so yea its bad if u have to ask if its ok its not ok

WTF kinda question is that? Religion is a sin to mankind and has set us back in our development about a thousand years. Porn is porn. Hardly a substitute for the real thing but good if you are bored and need a quick release. BTW Christ didn't come here to start Christianity so we could have debates and hate one another for each others opinions.

There is nothing wrong with watching porn. It's not a sin. Hey it's better than actually having sex.
Comment Hidden (show)
Most Christians would label it a sin. Porn is also not a good idea in terms of the values it can program. Porn only stimulates the visual aspects of sexuality and is typically filmed from a very selfish male centric perspective, so imo, you'd be better off just getting laid.

The main problem Christianity has with porn would lie in the verses that hold you accountable for your thoughts as much as your actions. So, if you lust (which means desire only for selfish sexual pleasure--not just sex or reproduction), you are held accountable for actually having sex with every woman you masturbate to. So, this become fornication or adultery, depending on whether you're married or nit. The act of masturbation itself is not a sin, but it's hard to masturbate without lusting after a woman.

Porn is lusting and lust is adultery. Jesus said it himself
Comment Hidden (show)
Yes, it is a sin.

Sex outside marriage is a sin. In pornography, there are usually multiple partners having sex. Even if there are only two, they are almost certainly not married to each other. They are therefore committing a sin. If I amuse myself by enjoying someone else's sin, that's even worse than doing it myself. It means that I'm not just committing a sin, but celebrating it.

Pornography is extremely addictive, too. I know, because I've been there. Breaking it was extremely hard. I have had to learn a whole new way of thinking too, as pornography programmed me to think of women as sex objects there for my own gratification. That can't be right either.

Porn is one of the most wonderful things that we humans have created. Porn prevents sinning because people can masturbate to porn rather than cheating on their wives or husbands with another woman or man. So porn preserves the sanctity of marriage. Please don't ever let anyone tell you it's a sin.

envy and greed and lust are also not cool or so i've heard but i don't know anybody who hasn't felt greedy envious or lustful so even if porn isn't okay w/ god or w/e i don't think it's practical to quit watching just because the church says not to
Comment Hidden (show)
well depends on what sect of Christianity your in.
i don't but it would be safe to say that it is.

but what can we do, we are only human and God made us horny. we all love it, we can't help ourselves.

is it a sin yes
are you normal absolutely

Me and my wife watch it and we've been together for 15yr and I love her now more then we first met. Help keep the sex drive up

It is completely normal. And there is no such thing as "sin." The only "sinful" actions are those that cause harm [to others]; ie treat your neighbor as yourself.

You might like to read Aristotle on catharsis. He would likely defend porn on such grounds.

And its not like the gods and goddesses are going to know if you watch porn or not. Certainly you don't mean to imply that the holiest of the holy are peeping toms? Blasphemy!

Evolve you do realize he is talking about Theology, not polytheism, right?
Comment Hidden (show)
@mccl, how do we know the poster is a he? Even if the person is a monotheist, how would their god or goddess know whether or not the person watches porn? Perhaps the god or goddess has selective omniscience? Why would the god or goddess want to gaze down on someone and watch the person watch porn?

question is , does it still makes u a christian?
Comment Hidden (show)
In response to yayyay

It's a sin to lust after women or men according to Christianity ? Isn't sex a natural instinct to reproduce? We should give into our instincts because this is the natural way of life. If Christianity is against. Reproduction, then christianity is against life itself. So should we call it a sin? No

As long as it's not abusive in any way, and you're not paying for it, if it gives you pleasure go for it. Porn is EVERYWHERE nowadays - and I think there are very few people who can honestly say they've never watched any and been turned on by it - even by accident.
Comment Hidden (show)
i'm also a Christian, and i think it's bad too...but i guess as long as the porn ur watching isn't harming anyone then i guess it's okay?

Porn isn't a sin as far as I'm concerned. Just voyerism. Ick! Not my cup if tea.

Most rules inside the bible weren't there 50 years ago anyway.. Most philosophies surrounding sin were conjured by concerned people just trying to limit the amount of immoral things happening. I mean, most people in the bible had multiple wives? I don't hear any women's rights activists making a fuss over the women not having multiple husbands... so?? I think we should all own up to it, because at one point in time, everyone's going to do it, and it's either own up to it or be a hypocrite.

I'm not an atheist, I'm an idealist. Fuck what everyone else thinks

dude this is sin but sin just means "your missing the mark". Jesus said don't sin, He told us what sin was and said it was harmful. Lust and Adultry are harmful to you and your future partner. Do not shame yourself, pray about it. Jesus came for all of us sinners, he loves you inspite of your sin.

The way I look at it I don't think looking at porn is a sin. When I look at porn I find the women very attractive in looks and get a general idea of what I'm attracted to. When I look at these women I don't want to be with them romantically and I don't want to engage these actions with said person. I am the kind of guy that only wants to have sexual actions with if someone who I am certain that I will be with them forever. As of right now I only desire to have sex with the person I love not with the girls I watch on the internet. As the years go by I'm growing as a Christian but I still have a lot to learn. I don't know for a fact if finding someone attractive is also lusting over them but I know my feelings and I don't desire to be with any of the girls I look at on the internet. When I find someone attractive as a person THAT'S when I desire to be with them but if said person has a boy/girlfriend I just become friends. I only desire to have a strong relationship with someone then if the time is right I will have sexual actions with her. I don't see it as a sin but I would like to hear others thought on the subject.

porn is a sin just like all the other ones, JESUS died on the Cross,was buried,and rose the third day. JESUS died on the Cross for alllllllll sins every single one of them , when you Repent and become Born Again you are Eternally Secure and all of your past present and future sins are Forgiven, when you do that GOD doesnt impute sin unto us, but we are Righteous True and Holy in GODS Eyes in our Spirits.

To all the jerkass judgemental Christians who preach the bible, but not the word of their own messiah, I say this:

I watched a Porno yesterday with a chick dressed up as a nun, and lemme tell you, I wanted to comfort her with my rod and my staff. Take of this, bitch, and eat it, for it is of my body.
