Does the Bible teach that pornography is a sin?

The Bible teaches us that sexual activity was created to be enjoyed in marriage. It is a beautiful and godly activity reserved for the marital union (Heb. 13:4). The Bible teaches that sexual activity outside of marriage is wrong.

There's no doubt that sexual promiscuity can be enjoyable. What you must remember is that promiscuity always produces unhappy people and ungodly situations. God's reason for telling us to abstain from extramarital activity is not because He doesn't want us to have fun.

He knows that in the end these types of relationships will harm you and will not bring you contentment (Prov. 6:24-27). Notice this statement that Jesus Himself made.
You have heard that it was said, "Do not commit adultery." But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
(Matt. 5:27-28)
Jesus is saying, "If you look at a woman, and lust in your heart, you've already committed sexual sin." Sexual sin can be committed in the mind, according to Jesus.

Because of this statement, we can say that the Bible clearly teaches us that pornography is a sin. It's important to remember that God loves the person who is committing these types of sins and wants to help them stop.

I've seen scores of men (and many women) freed from pornography or lust since I've been in active ministry. There's nothing that can compare to the sexual pleasure enjoyed in a marital relationship.

Everything else is a poor substitute that is never truly satisfying.
