The Wrongs Of Child Pornography From A Christian Perspective

3183 words - 13 pages

Pornography/Child Pornography I am a Christian theist due to a few reasons. A few of these reasons include the bibliographical, teleological, and Christological evidence and my own personal beliefs. The bibliographical evidence has to do with prophecies of the bible that have been made which are being filled. This has strong conviction for me because I grew up reading the bible and listening to what it has to say. As I grow older I see more and more things that are prophesized in the bible that correspond with things going on in the world today. The teleological evidence tells us that designs that support life were designed by God, not by random chance. This is more believable than things happening by random chance because everything comes from a certain focus or point which helps keep everything within reason. The Christological evidence helps strengthen my belief because I believe strongly in proof and actuality. I believe that if you can have guaranteed proof you can have guaranteed truthfulness about things. What is better proof or assurance than actually seeing something you believe in. The reason that the Experiential, the Axiological, and the vacuum evidence don't hold as much conviction with me is because they have to do more with feeling and values than proof. Feeling is something that is good to help strengthen a belief but you need a basis beneath it to make it actually mean anything. With guaranteed proof you are sure to have a strong basis because everything that you are basing your belief on is able to be backed up with evidence which is something that can be shown. I also am a Christian theist due to my own research of the religion and my own personal beliefs. As I said before I like to see proof to believe in something and what I have read in the bible are true and historic accounts of actual human beings. Also, my Christian theism is strengthened because of the evidence that I have seen of God in the lives of the people I grew up with. From my parents, to my friends at church, to some of my friends at school. I will admit that there have been some doubts here and there in the years that have weakened my dedication to God but then there are always things that come along later to strengthen it back up. Whether it be just a kind word from somebody or a helpful action by somebody else. To me this is evidence that there is somebody out there who cares about all of us and does not want to see any of us getting hurt or in trouble. These are the reasons that I have chosen to become a Christian theist and the reason that I chose the viewpoint that I did on the issue of pornography.There are a number of moral knowledge and moral value theories that are used to help strengthen beliefs. The one that I most believe to be most true is the rationalism theory. This puts your reasons above you faith. It helps you be able to figure out due to reason and proof what you believe in. I think this is a strong theory because it involves logical thing....
