A few weeks ago I learned the distressing news that a couple I know is divorcing; the husband has pursued pornography, and beyond, for a decade. His sin has not only ravaged his wife’s life, but in violating that covenant he orphaned four young children from a faithful fatherhood. He stands as part of a devastating trend of infidelity leading to divorce in evangelical churches.
Not long after hearing that, I learned, chatting with a friend and his college student daughter, that her Bible and ethics professor had recently shown her college (an ostensibly conservative, Reformed institution) class pornographic clips from movies to teach the class that we can find “redemptive value” in all art.
Hearing this made me think back to the divorcing couple.
