3. When Will I Tear Out My Eye, If Not Now?
Jesus said, 'Everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away' (Matthew 5:28–29).'
"Don’t watch it!"
4. Is It Not Satisfying to Think on What Is Honorable?
"Life in Christ is not mainly the avoidance of evil, but mainly the passionate pursuit of good."
5. Am I Longing to See God?
"I want to see and know God as fully as possible in this life and the next. Watching nudity is a huge hindrance to that pursuit."
6. Do I Care About the Souls of the Nudes?
"When we pursue or receive or embrace nudity in our entertainment, we are implicitly endorsing the sin of the women who sell themselves to this way and are, therefore, uncaring about their souls."
7. Would I Be Glad If My Daughter Played This Role?
"Most Christians are hypocrites in watching nudity because, on the one hand, they say by their watching that this is okay, and, on the other hand, they know deep down they would not want their daughter or their wife or their girlfriend to be playing this role. That is hypocrisy."
8. Am I Assuming Nudity Can Be Faked?
"Nudity is not like murder and violence on the screen. Violence on a screen is make-believe; nobody really gets killed. But nudity is not make-believe."
9. Am I Compromising the Beauty of Sex?
10. Am I Assuming Nudity Is Necessary for Good Art?
"There is no great film or television series that needs nudity to add to its greatness. No. There isn’t."
"Underneath all of this is male sexual appetite driving this business, and following from that is peer pressure in the industry and the desire for ratings that sell."
11. Am I Craving Acceptance?
"What keeps those Christians coming back is the fear that if they take Christ at his word and make holiness as serious as I am saying it is, they would have to stop seeing so many television shows and so many movies, and they would be viewed as freakish. And that today is the worst evil of all. To be seen as freakish is a much greater evil than to be unholy."
12. Am I Free from Doubt?
"There is one biblical guideline that makes life very simple: “But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin” (Romans 14:32). My paraphrase: If you doubt, don’t.
