Each week, I round up the best resources, articles, and videos I find that are relevant to finding freedom from porn and sexual addiction. Please note that by posting a link here it does not mean I agree with everything in the linked article. It just means I found it interesting enough to share.
Mike Leake | How to Give the Devil a Foothold
“There are many places where the devil could get a foothold in a person’s heart or in the life of a church. Yet, there is one particular place where we are warned against not allowing the devil to gain a place, and that is in our unresolved anger.”
“I understand that my perspective and approach to all this sexuality terminology stuff doesn’t fit nicely into a box. I understand that, to the world and even to some Christians, it sounds crazy. But as aliens in this world, shouldn’t our perspectives be a bit alienish?”
Art of Manliness | Christianity’s Manhood Problem: An Introduction
“Why does a religion started by a carpenter and his twelve male comrades attract more women than men? Christian churches are led predominately by men (95% of Protestant senior pastors and 100% of Catholic clergy are male) and are criticized by feminists as bastions of male patriarchy, power, and privilege; so why is the laity paradoxically composed largely of women?”
XXXChurch | Is Masturbation a Sexual Sin?
“These are not bad questions in and of themselves, yet they often leave us scratching our heads more than giving us a clear direction. So I would like to propose a few different ways we can think and talk about masturbation.”
Gene Veith | Young Men Living the Dream
“This prolonged delay of marriage and relational commitment often means a perpetual adolescence in other areas of life. Love and sex are arguably the best incentives for men to assert their adulthood. But in the comfort of their parents’ homes and their gaming systems, young men get to live out their fantasies without the frictions of reality. What does that sound like? It sounds like pornography.”
KeyLife | God Loves You…So Come Home
“This parable says to come on home. Even if you have a limp, even if blood is all over the place, even if it’s a long distance to travel, come on home. The loving Father waits.”
