Steve: Hey guys! Steve with Belt of Truth. I’ve got James Tarring Cordrey on the line. James is the author and founder of Intentional Warriors. James, I’d like to ask you, what’s the one piece of advice you’d give to someone struggling with porn addiction?

James: The thing that I say as a foundational thing for all the guys I worked with is you have to heal your heart. You have to pursue being whole at the level of the heart because that’s where desire is and that’s where things get out of whack in terms of what we chase after. I think about in the Psalms when it says “I run in the path of Your commands because you’ve set my heart free” that everything about what we’re trying to get out of in terms of porn and what we’re trying to get into in terms of a vibrant life and good life all starts at the heart. I always talk to guys about getting into those very core level things and that’s one of the things that will help them long-term, instead of just a program or a certain structure of “I have to do this particular set of things” almost like in an OCD kind of way, like I can’t ever watch TV or I can’t ever go to the movies. If we heal the heart, then it opens up the possibilities for greater freedom and not being as easily snagged in the things that used to really trip us up. So I focus on bringing healing to the heart level of our lives.

Steve: I think that’s great advice. Thanks for sharing that, James. Tell people where they can find out more about you and your ministry online.

James: Thanks, my pleasure.
