Online Lewd Images at Religious Websites
By David J. Stewart | September 2009 | Updated June 2013
Revelation 3:15, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot."
As an Independent Fundamental Baptist, and first and foremost as a born-again Christian, I am greatly offended by the lewd images displayed online by so many so-called “Christian” websites today. 1st Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
I hadn't visited the Fighting Fundamentalist Forum (FFF) for over a year, and it was about a year prior to that when I had visited. I can't stand the website because of the gossip and filth. They claim to be a Christian fundamentalist website that is fighting for the faith. What are they fighting against besides each other? All I see are backslidden hypocrites that attack other fallen believers and spread manure. The FFF is a shameful joke!!! Preachers who post comments and articles in the FFF ought to be ashamed. They should be fighting against the FFF for exploiting Christianity to make a buck. I tell you, there's NOTHING fundamentalist about the FFF. What a misnomer! The Devil can slap a “Christian” label on anything, even the vilest hypocrisy and immoral garbage!
I greatly resent all the slander, gossip, idiocy and hypocrisy of the forum. And equally as rotten and repulsive is the dirty, sexually suggestive, lewd, images of nearly naked woman in their advertisements. It'll be a cold day in Hell before I ever allow such images on my website. Since 2002 when I began my ministry, I've been offered free web hosting on numerous occasions by immoral people who wanted to put smutty advertisements in the background, just like the FFF. I'll get rid of my website before I'll ever allow filth, smut and lustful advertising that harms men's souls.
The wicked Playboy philosophy in America thinks that it's cute for young boys to view dirty smut magazines, and for teenage boys to “score” (fornicate) with the girls and for married men to have wandering eyes and lustful minds. In sharp contrast, the Bible teaches that sexual lust brings the judgments of God (Colossians 3:5-6; Romans 1:24-32; Matthew 5:28). America's Rock music culture has led to massive sexual immorality, 54 million abortions the homosexual movement which.
Biblical Fundamentalism Promotes Modesty, Virtue And Honesty
Biblical fundamentalism teaches MODESTY for women. 1st Timothy 2:9 states, "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in MODEST APPAREL, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array." Lust is a sin, which Jesus condemned as adultery in Matthew5:28, "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." As born-again Christians we are supposed to stand up for what is right, and allowing images of improperly clothed women on our websites is not right. I am just speaking my humble opinion as a Christian who loves the Lord Jesus Christ.
It's a sin to dip one's sails in compromise to make a buck or gain popularity. No Christian website should allow indecency. A lot of Christian men are seeing these unwholesome images, and they ought not. I mean, lets be Christians or let's not. Jesus said He wants us hot or cold. Revelation 3:15, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot."
There's nothing any more wrong with America today than the sinful way women dress. We've become a nation of whorishly dressed women. There are only a few ladies anymore. And I thank God for both of them! I saw an elderly woman in the store the other day, whose hair was as gray as could be, wearing a miniskirt. Brother, we need to get back to decency in this nation! Prostitutes didn't dress as immodestly fifty years ago as most Christian women do today. Laugh at me if you want, I'm on God's side. America is going to hell morally because of immodestly dressed women. There will come a day when God will wipe that imprudent smirk off every feminists face, when they will give account to God for the sinful manner in which they dressed throughout their life.
I recently visited an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. A kind man welcomed me and said he is a Bible-teacher in their Christian grade school. He then introduced me to his wife, who was wearing slacks. I was saddened, because the young people follow the example set by the adults in the church. They were kind people and I'm not condemning them, God forbid. She cooked some delicious chicken and I had a nice time of fellowship with their little church group. It just hurts me, and I know it hurts God, that so many professed Christians today are following the world's sinful standards. If we follow at a set distance from the world, then we will become more worldly as the world becomes more sinful.
What we need to do as Christians, or if you prefer, as fundamentalists, is follow the Bible as our perfect standard. The Bible teaches that a woman ought not dress like a man. Deuteronomy 22:5, "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God." Any child knows that the restroom sign with the dress is for women, and the sign with the pants is for men. Women shouldn't wear pants. It is wrong. It is worldly. You say, "I don't like what you're preaching." I didn't ask you to like it, I'm just telling you the way it is. Women who wear slacks and pants are not right with God. I preached that twenty-five years ago and I haven't changed. God deliver us from this whorish generation of feminist home-wreckers.
You can rest assure that I will never allow immodest images on my website. I don't care if my website ranks at the end of the list. It took me years to build up my ministry's popularity, because I refused to allow worldly advertising in exchange for promoting my website. Sad to say, there are many so-called Christian websites which promote false religions, lewd images, heathen organizations, dating services, et cetera, in order to get recognized. It's just plain wrong. As Christians we ought not help the Devil destroy men's lives by promoting filth and indecency.
As for Me and My House, We Will Serve the Lord
In Joshua 24:15, Joshua told the people that they had to make a choice between serving God or not. But Joshua says he and his house have chosen to serve the Lord. Amen and amen! I am on the Lord's side! By God's grace, I've built my online ministry the honest way, one article at a time, without the use of gimmicks or third-party advertising. Humbly, Check out my statistics and you'll see how my website ministry rose slowly, but gradually, from only 2,745 visitors my first year in 2002. In 2003 I had a total of 61,288 visitors. In 2004 there were 117,042 people. And then after the third year in 2005 there were over a million hits! And now in 2013 by God's grace, this website receives over a million visitors per month. To God be the glory, great things He hath done! I give God 100% credit for everything, for He put the desire in my heart to start this ministry and to keep going.
I had no idea when I began this ministry in 2002 that my website would become as popular as it has; but if it hadn't, I still would have done it the same way that I did (that is, without sleazy advertising and external advertising). I've also stopped linking to many websites because they all promote the same lewd, shady, fearmongering and immoral garbage that others do. You'll find the same junk on each of their websites, all getting paid to exploit visitors. In an attempt for instant recognition, many Christians are stooping way low.
Luke 8:35, “Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.”
