Christian Porn

Christian porn?  Is there such a thing?  In a way yes, there is.  At least it is porn labeled as "Christian".  What on earth do I mean?  There is porn that is sanctioned by many churches and Christians, but before I go on, I want to warn you this will be a bit of a rant.  Why is it okay for a Christian film to depict Adam and Eve before the fall, nearly naked?  Why?  They were naked, before they sinned.  Afterward God covered them did he not?  Hey they even tried to cover themselves right?  Everybody knows they were naked, why do we need to show it?  God covered them that is a pretty direct statement that the human body should be covered I think.  Christians often say it is sin to look at porn, even so called "soft porn", but apparently when it is in Christian film and pictures it is okay?  What is wrong here?  Our movies are full of this "christian porn".  Take Soul Surfer for example to name one.  I have not seen this movie, but I have seen some pictures from it and....  the women are not wearing much more than underwear and the cameras are placed at angles that accentuate the immodesty.  There are others, too, where the dress standard is not too terrible, but the cameras are stuck at angles they should never be at.  Just look at the pictures.  Unfortunately, I have seen some porn, and it makes me angry when I see Christians copying it.  Take camera poses for another example, I have seen many Christians pose in ways that the porn stars do.  Yes just like them, folks those are not just "cool" ways to pose.  The porn industry uses them for a reason.  They have a product to sell, and they don't waste their time on stuff that doesn't work.
Okay, one last area.  Art.  Seems in art anything goes as long as it is painted, sculpted or drawn we can show anything right?  Classic art, it is just statues and paintings of naked people.  Face it folks it is porn.  Think of the famous statue of David.  How about the famous picture of Adam and God?  What about the various pictures and sculptures of other Bible characters or stories?  A lot of those pictures the people are either naked or, may as well be.  I once read a secular article on art, they lauded some of the "Christian" artists of the classical era for their "sensual" treatment of the human body.
Summery: I bring this subject up for several reasons, for one I am sick and tired of having to avert my eyes during Christian movies, I have seen secular films with much higher dress standards than a whole lot of Christian films. There are soo many Christian films that are excellent in message but I cannot ever show them to a non believer because what would he get out of it with the distraction of mixing sex in it, and what does it say about me?  I tell him that lust is adultery, then throw the temptation to lust right before him?  Next, as Christians we hold a double standard, it is disgusting, we say looking at porn is sin, then we turn around allow it in certain "christian" forms.  The non-believers love this, it is awesome ammo for them to throw at us.  Please think on this my friends

Stop blaming God

Stop blaming God for this mess down here. God created man with a free choice, and gave him this world, and man has made the mess you see, and on judgement day, men will be held accountable for what they did to the earth God entrusted to them. I am sick of people saying this mess is God's fault somehow. Own up folks, we did it and unless we repent of our sins and believe on Jesus Christ, we will pay the price of hell fire for it.
