Mosiah 12:29
  29 And again he said unto them: If ye teach the law of Moses why do ye not keep it? Why do ye set your hearts upon riches? Why do ye commit whoredoms and spend your strength with harlots, yea, and cause this people to commit sin, that the Lord has cause to send me to prophesy against this people, yea, even a great evil against this people?

My Thoughts
Pornography is spending time with harlots.  It is also spending strength with harlots.

How is pornography spending strength with harlots?

  • The Holy Ghost is our strength and pornography removes that strength.
  • Pornography is very addictive and addiction interferes with our agency.  Agency is also our strength.
  • Pornography takes strength away from family, friends, and work.
Entertainment that is not classified by the world as pornography, but is still put on by those acting like harlots would still be spending our time with harlots.


Elder Dallin H. Oaks, Pornography, April 2005 General Conference
"Finally, do not patronize pornography. Do not use your purchasing power to support moral degradation. And young women, please understand that if you dress immodestly, you are magnifying this problem by becoming pornography to some of the men who see you."

"Our Heavenly Father has counseled us to seek after 'anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy.'5 Whatever you read, listen to, or watch makes an impression on you.
"Pornography is especially dangerous and addictive. Curious exploration of pornography can become a controlling habit, leading to coarser material and to sexual transgression. Avoid pornography at all costs.
"Don’t be afraid to walk out of a movie, turn off a television set, or change a radio station if what’s being presented does not meet your Heavenly Father’s standards. In short, if you have any question about whether a particular movie, book, or other form of entertainment is appropriate, don’t see it, don’t read it, don’t participate."

Moroni 10:30
 30And again I would exhort you that ye would come unto Christ, and lay hold upon every good gift, and touch not the evil gift, nor the unclean thing.
