(Podcast) Jesus & the Restoration of Intimacy—The Real Issue Behind the Porn Epidemic
Season 2, Episode 008: Jesus & the Restoration of Intimacy—The Real Issue Behind the Porn Epidemic
Pornography is a rapidly growing epidemic in our culture. Both kids and adults, men and women, Christians and non-Christians are all caught in its net. At the root of this “normalizing” of addiction to sexually explicit material is a diminishing ability to make and maintain intimate relationships. In one sense, Jesus is a tradesman who specializes in hand-crafted relationships, and that’s why he can offer us real hope, building back what we’ve lost.
Join us this week as we talk to special guest Roxanne Stone (Editor-in-Chief at the Barna Research Group) about Porn Phenomenon, a new Barna study that’s one of the broadest assessments ever produced on pornography and its impact on our culture. We’ll also dive into how Jesus heals and restores our ability to live intimately with others, and how we can cooperate with his redemptive mission in our life.
