Exclusive: ‘Logos Software’ Selling Hardcore Erotica Porn Alongside Devotionals and Bible Studies

Update: Logos announced the same day this article was published that the offensive material on their platform was an error and that they were removing the offending content ASAP.

This post contains links with graphic descriptions and language. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.

Logos Bible Software is perhaps the world’s most prominent and popular sermon prep and bible study software. Released in 1992 by Faithlife Corporation, this digital library application contains over 100,000 titles and theological resources in over a dozen languages, and has been endorsed by everyone from John MacArthur to Beth Moore.

Logos offers access to Christian classics, academic work, commentaries, encyclopedias, bibles, devotionals, Greek and Hebrew lexicons, datasets, lectionaries, dictionaries, interlinears, and all other sorts.

Aimed at colleges, seminaries, pastors, teachers and laypeople, these items are offered through standalone purchases or through packaged bundles. In some cases, these bundles cost up to $2149.99.


Books are also offered through Faithlife E-books, which has over 100K titles and is named after their namesake Faithlife Corporation, which owns several other companies in this field:

Faithlife E-books and Logos also sell hardcore erotica. We have uncovered hundreds of books that Logos has sold or is currently selling that contain extended graphic and descriptive sex scenes rivaling the most sordid and smuttiest of Harlequins.

A few examples include: (Warning, to view, click to enlarge)

Content can also be seen here and here

While one-offs of these books can be purchased and added separately, the content can also be full text searched via Logos 10 gold or higher without purchasing the books, giving any bored pastor quick access to this content where no one would think to look, and without ever having to pay for it. There is no content warning for this literature through the program, and it cannot be locked down or blocked by a firewall.

So why is Logos selling it?

According to Logos’ distribution philosophy, “Logos is not a church, charity, ministry, or nonprofit” but a “technology company and bookstore that serves churches, pastors, academics, and laity.” While their guidelines insist that they don’t sell media that contains pornography, they clearly do, with nearly 750 titles containing explicit content cataloged.

One longtime Logos user, whose identity we are shielding, estimates he’s spent over $15,000 on their resources in the last decade. He has contacted the company multiple times over the last month, sounding the alarm about selling these perverse resources, but alleges no one has responded to him or bothered returning his messages.

We hope you will change that.

You can submit a customer service form to Logos here, or call this number: 1-888-563-0382, or email them at cs@logos.com, sharing this link and insisting that they stop selling erotic and pornographic books.

Please DM us on Twitter with any correspondences they send back.

  1. It looks like they’re starting to pull down some of the cited books in the article, but there’s more they still have not. For instance, a book titled ‘Kiss of Night: A Novel’ is about a former crusader who lost a relic to a vampire. As someone who has spent a fortune on Logos, I’m very disappointed with the direction they’ve been trending.

  2. Best case scenario: Someone at Faithlife/Logos goofed big time and wasn’t aware this stuff was there (somehow). Worst case scenario: They knew.
