Piper on Porn

Here's a paragraph from a recent Piper interview. The topic? Sermon preparation. Here's what he has to say about the resilience of pornographic images on the human psyche:

image We were talking about this pornography thing over lunch the other day, and we who are 60 years old were reflecting on how difficult it was to get pornography when we were teenagers. The implication of that is that in my brain I have two pornographic images from my teen years. I found a Playboy in a Laundromat, and they were passing a really weird book around in the locker room one day. I remember both images like I saw them yesterday. Most of you have a thousand images in your brain. That really makes sermon preparation hard, but not impossible. He died to purify our conscience, although you make your job a lot harder if you keep going to that cesspool. 

Pornography, the Heart, and Sermon Prep
