Christian Men & Pornography
Have you figured out yet that you have a target on your back? Christian men are falling prey to one of the greatest traps of the last 2,000 years; pornography.
Research shows that Christian men are even more susceptible to pornography due to the added guilt and shame associated with its use.
(My Father's Stash, 2013)
If you have been viewing porn and struggling with stopping your viewing, you might be addicted and not even know it. You know what the Bible says about lust and this has even caused you to doubt whether or not you truly are a Christian. You are not alone! Millions of Christian men have the same struggles.
If you would like to find a way to win the battle follow these simple steps:1. Tell your Pastor or other trusted spiritual leader. 2. Follow James 5:16 (Tell someone your struggles.) 3. Find an accountability partner. 4. Find a counselor that specializes in sex addiction and schedule an appointment.
You will find every reason in the world not to do this... If you could have stopped on your own, you would have done so by now.
Pastors & Pornography
Why would we think that Pastors are not dealing with the addictive nature of porn?
50% of all Christian men and 40% of all Pastors are addicted to pornography.

A review from one reader:
I just finished reading this book. I found myself thinking that is so true about the comment that no one really wants to discuss sex/pornography yet it is all over the media and in our face on a daily basis. I have a son and three grandsons and I strongly feel that parents should discuss sex and the dangers of pornography with their children. Secondly, the church needs to bring the topic to the pulpit and encourage parents to talk to their children about the dangers. It is sad when an innocent child cannot even type in the word, white house for a book report without getting into garbage on the internet. Jerry writes with brutal honesty about a topic that is hard to comprehend. After reading the book, I can see where it can be addicting and the seed is planted at an early age in our society. This is a must read for everyone.
Protect yourself and your family!
Don't let the Porn Industry enter an open window and capture your family. Protect them with Internet Filtering and Blocking Software. Here are a few we recommend.
