I stumbled across a wonderful resource website today, covenanteyes.com to read an interview with Trip Lee and Pro(listen to it). I eventually found an article about pornography statistics with teens.
We all need to go to God in prayer asking for His help because these guys are invading lives, destroying lives and yes, they have a long track record of destroying relationships... I'm talking about the pornography makers and actors.
Here's the shocking article gotten from this covenant eyes post.
(Click on the image to see a bigger preview)Researchers said this sample of students had “a considerable amount of exposure” to Internet pornography, and they were particularly concerned about the degree of exposure to deviant sexual activity. “If participants in this study are typical of young people,” researchers commented, “exposure to pornography on the Internet can be described as a normative experience, and more study of its impact is clearly warranted.”

I don't know about you, but I was shocked. I knew the pornography invasion was kinda bad, but this bad? I was shocked.
The invasion is definitely beatable... with God's help of course. Let's take this attack aimed at the youth by the enemy to God in prayer.
