As I grew up, my parents always instructed me according to the bible in abstaining myself from any kind of sexual interaction until I get married, they backed up this moral principle according to the Commandments. Due to this I am going to be using the Bible and the Commandments. It is sad the fact that the world has become so mundane that everyone sees pornography as a normal activity. However I was raised this way, the world doesn’t believe that way. A clear example for this is the Playboy girls in Huge Hefner mansion. They make sex be seen as something pretty and fun, leaving an image on other girls mind that makes them follow it by making it seem that is something okay for society. Even though the world believes this is right, I am against pornography because it violates some moral principles that I value. Pornography includes sexual desire, but more important it reduces the individual status and violates what God wants from our personal and other person’s privacy. I believe that something that makes people sin is wrong, because pornography makes people to sin; therefore pornography is wrong to me. Pornography leads people to sin, since attempts people into sexual desire. Sexual desires feel good, but we don’t go by feelings, we go by principles and morals. In my personal opinion, standards should be higher than feelings, then having this in mind, I will abstain myself from sexual desires to leads to pornography. In Corinthians 6:13-18 says, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for the food, and God will destroy them both.” The body however is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Our bodies are members of Christ himself.
I believe that something that reduces individual status as a human being is wrong; because pornography reduces individual status as a human being then I believe pornography is wrong. As humans we see different levels of sin. If a friend comes up to me and tells me he or she lies sometimes, I don’t see it as a big thing, but if a friends tells me he or she is struggling with pornography, I will normally take this sin more serious than lying. The devil knows what are the things that one person struggles the most, in this case he probably will make someone addicted to pornography with the purpose to destroy that person’s life through pornography.

For last, I believe that something that violates what God wants from our personal and other person’s privacy is wrong, therefore pornography is wrong for me. I based this opinion in the 10th Commandment that says “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female
