Youth porn use spurs webinar
    October 24 2017 by Baptist Press staff

    How to counter teen pornography use within faith communities is the subject of a webinar to be hosted twice in November by the Religious Alliance Against Pornography.


    Among the webinar’s presenters is Dean Inserra, pastor of City Church in Tallahassee, Fla. At least two Southern Baptists serve on the alliance’s advisory board: K. Marshall Williams, pastor of Nazarene Baptist Church in Philadelphia, and Dan Darling, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s (ERLC) vice president for communications.
     
    The Religious Alliance Against Pornography (RAAP) is an interfaith effort to mobilize people to understand and combat pornography. In the past, advisory board members have included retired ERLC President Richard Land and the late Adrian Rogers, a former Southern Baptist Convention president and pastor of Memphis-area Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova, Tenn.
     
    “It is my prayer,” Williams said in written comments, “that this webinar will help save, heal and deliver many from pornography and instill and revive the passion for sexual purity in our youth and adults.”
     
    Offered Nov. 7 at noon Eastern time and again Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. Eastern, the webinar will cover God’s design for sexuality and marriage, the reality that teens “are looking at pornography in staggering numbers” and potential courses of action for pastors and parents, according to a webinar outline on the RAAP website.
     
    Among questions to be addressed, according to the outline:

    • “When should we be talking to our youth about” pornography?
    • How should adults discuss pornography with teens?
    • “What are some steps we can take with users and those who have become addicted?”
    • How can adults help teens “in safely using the technological devices that are connected to the internet?”

     
    The webinar, Williams said, will relay “practical insights and preventive measures to ensure victorious living when it comes to personal holiness according to our unique purpose as ordered by the Divine Orderer.”
