Nearly 50% of Self Professing Christian Men Have Ongoing Use of Porn

Desiring God surveyed over 8,000 of its readers to find out how many people watched porn. They found that “Watching porn is increasingly higher among younger adults. More than 15% of Christian men over age sixty admitted to ongoing use. It was more than 20% for men in their fifties, 25% for men in their forties, and 30% for men in their thirties. But nearly 50% of self-professing Christian men, ages 18–29, acknowledged ongoing use of porn.”

Trip Lee is a 27-year-old rapper, husband, and father of two. He’s also a pastor who’s starting a church in Atlanta. He released his album, Rise, which quickly hit #1 on the iTunes charts. In less than three minutes, Trip Lee offers explains the truth about watching porn. It’s important to remember God’s Word, the seriousness of pornography, and the benefit encouraging others to do the same.

“It’s a unique sin. Because at this point you don’t have to go anywhere to indulge in it. You don’t have to make a long series of bad decisions to fall into it,” Lee says in a video. “There’s often this kind of despair, feeling they’re imprisoned by their sin.”
