There comes a time in which every Christian teen is tested, or should I say tempted. For many reasons that only you know, you chose to open this door.

For “D” when she was 9, she opened this door by mistake, but after that moment, she chose to continue to open this door as she aged because of her low self-esteem and body issues.

For another, this boy chose to open this door out of curiosity and peer pressure from his friends. He was about 11. He knew it was wrong, but he chose to continue doing it for the next several hours until he was caught.

For 17-year-old “R”, he had been practicing his nightly visits for quite some time despite attending church and having a girlfriend.

  1. Interesting. I don’t know, is porn really that bad? I don’t think so except when it exploits the individuals who are making it. But it exists and I think shaming kids about it doesn’t help the situation.

      It’s a slippery slope. From the purely Christian point of view, it’s a dangerous thing to play with. A sin too.
      From the societal point of view, the implications are dangerously scary. And while I hate to think I’m shaming children, I think this needed to be talked about.
      Thank you for the comment. By the way, Happy New Year.

      1. I totally agree with you in the slippery slope-ness of all of it. Also the inappropriate stuff in music videos that are targeted to kids just amazes me. It’s a hard path to negotiate as a parent, I imagine.

        Happy New Year to you too!
