Episode 188: Is pornography grounds for divorce?

Episode Highlights

  • The near and extended context of Matt 5:27-28 indicates that Jesus is seeking to help the people apply the law to their hearts and avoid a surface-level conception of obedience.
  • Jesus does not intend to absolutely equate lust with adultery, so as to imply that the temporal consequences should be the same.
  • It is likely that far more people have sinned in the way Jesus described in Matthew 5:27-28 (looking lustfully upon a fully clothed person) than have been involved in pornography. If lust and adultery were consequentially equal, the vast majority of married adults likely would have grounds for divorce.
