Question
Hi Ray
What is the Community of Christ view on pornography, masturbation, and Pre martial sex?

Will one who commit these acts be damn to hell?

Regards

Answer
Alvin,

We are all sinners but we have a Father in heaven who loves us. Porn, Masturbation and Sex can be sins but the universe is more complex than is reflected by saying that they always are. With all complexities much depends on attitude and intent. Is what is being done exploitative of others, does it demean or degrade them? Then it is sinful but, I must add, no more sinful than other things condemned in Holy scripture, Gluttony, Greed, Envy etc.

I hope this helps.
