“Drugs are not my problem, reality is my problem. Drugs and alcohol are my solution”
This amazing quote was uttered by the great theologian and philosopher of our time, Russell Brand.
If you don’t know who that is trust me he is a funny British guy with skinny jeans and awesome hair. Before he became famous though, Russell battled a heroin addiction for years that even now makes him “resenting...
Confession is easy on paper.
You spill your guts to someone not completely knowing how they will react; opening yourself up in ways that you have never done before. Waiting for the words you hope or dread hearing. Vulnerable, scary, nerve wracking.
Like I said, easy.
But there is something in confession that is mysteriously powerful and beautiful. For the first time you experience life like...
Why is it that the very thing we often go searching for through porn we never find?
Why is it that when we are feeling lonely and unloved and look at porn, do we feel even more lonely and unloved than before?
When someone looks at porn they mostly do it by themselves. Therefore the more time you spend looking at porn the more time you are spending with yourself. Stuck in your own head and...
Sometimes porn is not about sex.
If it was just about that then why do so many of us go back to the same images and movies over and over? Why do we have our favourite pictures and clips that are the staple of our porn indulgence? Why is once never enough?
No porn is often about getting to the deep issues each of us have that lurk behind the images we see on our screens. To uncover what those...
Have you ever watched porn with your best friend? Ever sat down with some pop corn, on the couch with your laptop, plonked inbetween your Mom and Dad?
There are better ways of bonding with your parents. Ways that mean you can look them in the eye again.
No porn is a pastime usually done alone and like anything that we do on our own, eventually we can become isolated and alone. We...
When you go to the dentist sometimes you will receive anesthetic. Sometimes you will not. If that happens you should look for another dentist. That one’s free right there.
The reason they give you drugs is basically so you don’t squirm in the seat due to the huge amounts of pain that sticking a needle in your mouth usually entails. If you jolt unexpectedly with sharp things in your mouth it...
If you have ever seen a porn scene you should know it’s not real. In reality the couple are often not really together. Sometimes they have only just met. She doesn’t normally let the milkman come in and then seduce them. He doesn’t really like to put his penis there. She actually doesn’t want five men inside her one after the other.
When we watch porn we are fed a lie.
We watch scenes and...
We love a good redemptive story from the Bible. It’s full of them. You can’t turn a page without reading of how God rescued a screwed up life and turned it into something that shines and is restored to what it was meant to be.
We also like to hear of real life stories of ordinary people lives rescued and turned around. It gives us hope for the world and it gives us hope for ourselves....
Ever clicked on one of those spam links that promises you a shiny new ipad if you fill out a quick survey? I know I have. I’m dumb sometimes. Ever eaten the 50% free parts of stuff in the supermarket then put the 50% that you have to pay for back on the shelf? Ever been thrown out of a supermarket?
We love free stuff. We love offers but sometimes they sound too good to be true. But that...
The days of being shown old, badly animated diagrams of penises and vaginas are over.
The teacher putting the condom over the banana is finished.
Porn is the new sex education for teens.
Not just porn, but music videos, movies and tv shows.
For a lot of kids their idea of sex comes from what they watch on their computer screen late at night when no one is around.
Which is a problem as it’s not...
