Playboy magazine versus the Bible

  Q. What is wrong with magazines like Playboy, Penthouse, 
      Hustler, etc.?  Why and how are they at odds with the Bible 
      and Christianity? 

  A. First one must recognize what they really are, the spirit and 
      philosophy that lies behind them.  They represent a blatant 
      glamorization of lust and lasciviousness, things that are 
      clearly sins according to the Bible.  They glamorize a 
      "swinger" philosophy (which is really simple hedonism) which 
      stands in conflict with the Bible and its teachings and 
      value system.  At the bottom, the spirit of this philosophy 
      is diametrically opposed to such Biblical values as the 
      importance of chastity, marital fidelity, strict honesty, 
      and prohibitions against adultery and promiscuity.  
      Basically these magazines represent a value system that is 
      diametrically opposite to the value system of the Bible.  
      There is a conflict of value systems.  The true lover of God 
      loves goodness, virtue, and morality.  The spirit of Playboy 
      magazine is to love badness and immorality.
