Satan Prowls Like a Roaring Lion as Porn Companies Capitalize During COVID-19

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

As families across the world shelter in place to thwart the spread of COVID-19, regrettably porn companies are taking advantage of people’s free time.

According to the New York Post, Pornhub is offering free premium access to content for users in Italy. In recent days, Pornhub expanded their free premium access on a global scale.

Pornhub’s VP, Corey Price, tried to disguise the company’s evildoing as a way to incentivize their consumer to stay home. Price said in a statement According to thenextweb.com:

With nearly one billion people in lockdown across the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important that we lend a hand and provide them with an enjoyable way to pass the time. We hope by expanding our offer of free Pornhub Premium worldwide, people have an extra incentive to stay home and flatten the curve.

Although there are plenty of other clean entertainment options available during this time of isolation, no one is naïve enough to think that some aren’t taking Pornhub up on their offer.

If you clicked on this article, chances are that you’re bothered by this news to a degree and we can’t blame you. For the Christian, this news is deeply troubling.

Sadly, according to endexploitation.org, porn fuels sexual exploitation, can lead to an unhealthy self-image and oftentimes, something that children are exposed to in a young age.

The author of 1 Peter says in chapter 5, “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 NIV)

The author then goes on to say that the way to resist the devil is by standing firm in the faith knowing that other believers are undergoing the same trials.

The text suggests a few big takeaways for the reader.

For starters, the devil isn’t skipping around like young Simba in THE LION KING. Actually, he’s more like the character Scar just waiting for the proper moment to satisfy his agenda.

Next, the devil is hungry and ready to pounce. So, are you prepared to fight against him?

COVID-19 is certainly not the way many expected 2020 to bring, including more porn.

However, believers can curb their attitude by looking at this season as an opportunity to bring the Lord glory.

Every click on a lewd website is a link in a chain from the devil. By stopping the click, believers bring glory to God, rather than the king of this age.

Make no mistake, Satan is pursuing you in this time, just like always, like a prowling lion.

The good news is that Jesus is pursuing you too and He wants what’s best for you.

Now more than ever is a time where healthy entertainment options are within your reach. Please watch with the lens that the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus came to give you abundant life.
