There’s a fine line between legitimate art and pornography.
What is the difference between art and pornography?
If our kids should challenge us with what the difference really is between a sculpture of Venus de milo and a Playboy centerfold; between Michelangelo’s David and the photos in Playgirl magazine, what will you tell them?
Tell them the difference is in the intent of the artist and the moral component to the work; because all art has a moral component to it.
If our kids argue that pornography is art; then they, and the rest of the world, including us, need to understand that it’s the devil’s art.
Because the viewer is receiving pleasure from immoral thoughts and acts that, beside being sinful, are counterproductive to man’s relationship with God.
