Russell Moore has commented on the rise of men making use of Internet pornography and computer games in, Fake Love, Fake War: Why so many men are addicted to internet porn and video games.
Men were made to make love and war, and both pornography and Call of Duty feed that need without the risk involved in reality. The gospel is the story of Christ’s love for his bride and his war against Satan and is dominions – that’s the reality all men have been called to engage in.
The answer to both addictions is to fight arousal with arousal. Set forth the gospel vision of a Christ who loves his bride and who fights to save her. And then let’s train our young men to follow Christ by learning to love a real woman, sometimes by fighting his own desires and the spirit beings who would eat him up. Let’s teach our men to make love, and to make war . . . for real.
