Hope for the Sexually Broken Part Five

Over the last several weeks we have looked at how God through Christ sets men free from sexual sin. Sexual sin is a serious threat to the local church. Men are being consumed by this sin on a daily basis. Many of these men feel out of control and helpless. Pornography and sexual sin devour men’s souls each and every day. God has given us a tremendous opportunity to administer the gospel for His glory and the love of our neighbor. It is of the utmost importance to find these brothers and make sure they understand the saving power of the gospel.

6 Essential Ingredients for Repenting of Pornography

Recently a new survey commissioned by a nonprofit organization called Proven Men Ministries and conducted by the Barna Group took a national representative sample of 388 self-identified Christian adult men. The statistics are alarming and paint a picture of the serious problem of pornography. The statistics for Christian men between 18 and 30 years old are particularly striking: 77 percent look at pornography at least monthly. 36 percent view pornography on a daily basis. 32 percent admit being addicted to pornography (and another 12 percent think they may be). The statistics for middle-aged Christian men (ages 31 to 49)...
