The Tripartite Impact of Pornography Consumption in the Local Church: Brain, Body, and Balance of Life
MetadataShow full item record
The tripartite impact of pornography on the brain, body, and balance of life, as well as the impact on the local church, is in need of further analysis and study. This need grows daily due to the ever increasing availability and production of explicit material like pornography. Consuming pornography is detrimental to the brain, body, and the balance of life. Chapter 1 serves as the introduction to the thesis project, outlining both the thesis itself, along with the methodology and general summaries of research. Chapter 2 seeks to explain the impact that pornography wreaks upon the brain when left unattended, focusing mainly on the chemical interactions that occur within the brain. Chapter 3 seeks to provide how pornography impacts the body, especially in the area of healthy sexual function. Chapter 4 culminates the impact caused on the brain and the body by looking at how addiction takes control over a normal balanced life. Chapter 5 offers a Christian perspective on how pornography can be overcome, and the individual restored to a healthy life of community and recovery. Chapter 6 concludes the project by summarizing the work as a whole. While many projects have addressed the destructive nature of pornography, academia may benefit from addressing the brain, the body, and the balance of life as a whole when reviewing the devastating results of pornography on consumers.
