Weekly Web (W)roundup


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.

9Marks | Redefining Intimacy

“But what’s been hardest is how the church often discourages non-sexual intimacy too. Our response to the sexual revolution going on outside our doors has sadly just been to promote sexual intimacy in the context of Christian marriage. And to encourage people to keep it there by promising this will then deliver all the intimacy they’ve ever wanted.”

Christianity Today | 10 Things Sexual Assault Victims Want You to Know

“A few years ago, I conducted a similar informal survey on Twitter by sharing the story of being stalked by my high school teacher and using the hashtag #howoldwereyou. It generated an equally tremendous response.”

Head Heart Hand | Lies at the Heart of Addiction

“Every addict tells four kinds of lies: lies about God, lies about themselves, lies about the sin, and lies about others. The only way to deliver addicts is to rip out these lies and replace them with truth.”

KeyLife | Why Jesus Had to Die

“You have to check out love. If there is no expression of love, there is no love. A lot of things are defined by what they are; a few things are defined by what they do and love is one. Love is not just a word. Love must be expressed or it isn’t love. At the cross, Christ came and he died…because of love.”

For the Church | Man-Made Coverings

“Performance-based mentality asks the question, “How am I doing?” without a view of the free gift of grace in Christ. It’s present when we feel like we need to measure up to something or somebody in our minds or “out there” in social media, in church, or at work. It is present when we feel like we have to put on something, be someone else, cover up who we really are, or how we’re really doing on the inside.”
