May the Lord cease the effects caused by the sex photos

"Everything is permissible" - but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible" - but not everything is constructive. (1 Co. 10:23)
May the Lord in His word enable people to be careful of their behavior so that what they do will be edifying to themselves. For example, in the recent "sex photos" scandal, the individuals involved have violated the privacy of others and brought harm to themselves as well as to others.
As it is written in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself". (Jas. 2:8a)
If mankind does not know how to love oneself, how can they love others?
"Trampling on oneself" can be used to describe those who were involved in the "sex photos" scandal. We were created in God's image but mankind cannot live out a life worthy of their own identity.
Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Ro. 1:32)
Although revealing private information of others is considered unethical, people tend to join the crowds and become oblivious of the fact that they are ensnared by their own sins.
When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, the hearts of the people are filled with schemes to do wrong. (Ecc. 8:11)
The transmission of these sex photos is considered immoral; however, people find themselves released of their responsibility within the grey areas of the law. May the Lord bestow mercy so that mankind would understand the severity and effect of the incident.
He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed – the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. (Ro. 4:17a)
Internet crimes can take many different forms. Who has the wisdom to establish rules in the internet realm? May the hearts and minds of people might not become corrupted and that hearts might not be ensnared.
