Abuse

Pornography promotes lust and objectifying the images that are taken in. Lust is about taking and using those images to be utilized for individual gratification.Continual use of porn promotes the idea of self-gratification, self-absorption and the using of others to accomplish this. Take this belief system into marriage and parenting and see what happens.

The Secret Room

Imagine there was a secret room in which you could enter and no one, including God, could see, hear or know what you did within its walls. Behind the covering of these walls existed your favorite sin. You could indulge in this sin with no fear of consequence during your time there as well as once you left. Would you choose to enter this room?

Scars Tell a Story

As we walk through this world we will be emotionally and spiritually wounded. I believe we would all choose a different path where there were no wounds, hurts or pain but it does not exist. We can, however, choose how we deal with these wounds. When we take those wounds to our heavenly Father, He turns them into a scar that makes us unique and special.

The Blessing of the Thorn

I realized throughout these interactions that the church had a problem and we weren’t dealing with it. Probably, the most beneficial thing I did was to listen to these brothers and sisters in Christ that were in the struggle. Since that time in the early 90’s I have listened to hundreds of stories from Christian sex addicts. These were not short stories but long stories that in some cases took days to tell.My hope is that, as a body of believers, we might better understand this assault from the enemy and stop shooting our sexually wounded or in some cases ignoring their plight.

Blinded by the eclipse

How was this small moon able to conduct such a powerful feat? Even though it is 400 times smaller than the sun, it is 400 times closer to the earth. This fact is true about most anything in our lives. The things which we draw closest to us are the things that garnish the most attention and tend to block other more significant items.

Dealing with messy people

We don’t like messy things and we want them to go away very quickly. There is nothing more messy than sexual sin. We can’t keep firing, shunning and sending away our messy sexual sinners because statistics show us that close to 70% of men in the church are looking at porn several times a week. What if we become the church that says “Hey, we are in the people business and people are messy. We are not afraid of your mess because we know the One who bore and paid for them.” Maybe if we did that then we might see true revival break out across this land.

Learning from failures

No strings attached love

Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. (NKJV) We receive a repeated message from a telemarketer that informs us that they are waiting to deliver our free “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” monitor. The guy on the message sounds like your best buddy and genuinely concerned for our […]

Where do you face your tent?

Genesis 13:11-13 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. (NKJV) Lot […]
