Yeah, see, in light of stories like this, there is NO POINT in a single, Christian woman holding out for a Christian man to marry, as many Christian men can be just as perverse and immoral as some Non Christian men. Ignore “be equally yoked,” single Christian ladies.

  • Churchgoers more likely to self-diagnose as addicts

  • Nearly two-thirds of American men watch pornography monthly and Christian men are paying nearly equal attention to the lustful practice, according to a (Link): study conducted by the Barna Group for Proven Men.

    The study, which also highlighted the porn viewing habits of women, said Christian men were also watching pornography at work at the same rate as secular men. It further pointed out that 33 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 30 are either addicted to pornography or unsure if they are. Overall, 18 percent of American men, approximately 21 million, think they are either addicted or are unsure if they are addicted to porn

  • …According to the study, only two in 10 women watch pornography at least monthly, and Christian women watch porn at half that rate.

  • Broken down by age group, however, women between the ages of 31 and 49 were revealed to be the most active pornography viewers with 42 percent, or four out of 10, engaging in the lustful habit at least monthly. About 20 percent of women, who are older and younger than that age group, watch pornography monthly.
  • ..Proven Men is a Maryland-based nonprofit ministry focused on helping men who struggle with pornography and related issues, according to their Facebook page.”We have discovered that ‘programs’ or ‘self-help’ efforts do not bring about lasting results. In other words, simply using an Internet block will not remove internal struggles to look at pornography. That is because the roots which feed and keep sexual impurity alive remain untreated.

  • Shocking porn consumption statistics released earlier this month show that an almost identical proportion of Christian men report watching smut each month as their non-Christian counterparts.
  • In a survey undertaken by Proven Men Ministries in collaboration with the Barna Group, it was found that 15 percent of self-identified Christian men view pornography several times each month compared to 14 percent of non-Christian men.
  • Additionally, 3 percent of non-Christian men say that they look at smut several times a day compared to 7 percent of Christian men. The below table provides a more expanded comparative breakdown:

    Overall, 64 percent of American men reported that they view porn at least monthly and 18 percent of all men said they are either addicted or unsure if they’re dependent upon smut; this proportion jumped to 33 percent for men between the ages of 18 and 30.

  • There are some profound differences between the genders, though.
  • Only two in 10 women report looking at porn monthly. While 11 percent of non-Christian women say they look at adult entertainment several times per month only 3 percent of Christian women report the same, exposing a stark difference between the two cohorts.

    Proven Men Ministries founder Joel Hesch, who sponsored the survey, said the results prove that there’s an epidemic of sorts unfolding, with porn draining peoples’ “time, energy and resources” if addiction is left unchecked.

  • “What we are seeing can almost be described as epidemic,” he said in a press release. ”Viewing pornography can quickly turn into a very real addiction. Just like drug or alcohol use, what starts off as a seemingly innocent or fun act can quickly spiral out of control.”
  • Results were derived from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults across the U.S., with a sampling error of ±3.1 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Read the complete results here.
  • Hesch and his group aren’t alone. As TheBlaze recently reported, Fight the New Drug, an organization that also opposes porn, believes that smut isn’t merely a moral stumbling block, but that it’s also a public health conundrum that poses some serious risks to the human brain and society.
