Sex Scandal

Recently the Huffington Post put out a list of the top ten most notorious teacher sex scandals of 2013. They referred to this list as the “Dishonor Roll” (catchy, right?). You can check out the entire article here. While I suppose that 10 sex scandals in an entire year out of all the teachers in the United States isn’t really that big of a number statistically, it still surprises me that...

Take the 30 Day ChallengeSo it’s the start of a new year and maybe you are hoping that 2014 will be the year you finally quit watching porn. Maybe you are tired of the defeat, the discouragement, the shame, the hopelessness, and all that comes along with pornography use.

I met Donny Pauling years ago.  He was a  porn producer for 9 years, contracting with Playboy and a group of other well known companies.  When Donny decided to commit his life to Christ I was one of the first guys he called.

Secrets are powerful. Secrets wrapped around pornography are even more powerful. Do you have any secrets?

Here are how secrets work:

Secrets lead to shame, shame leads to hiding, hiding leads to loneliness, loneliness leads to helplessness, and helplessness leads to quitting the fight.

Don’t quit. You can beat porn but you can’t do it alone. It’s always a click away and because of this you...

Here's another great video from our archives.  This video was shot by a good friend of ours and is entirely true.  What you'll see is a first hand account of what Joseph thought and went through the day he almost decided to take his life.  You see, porn addiction for many is a joke.  It's something that is seen as normal and even for some healthy.  However, we know porn is damaging and often...

Have you checked out the Letters section of our site lately?  We regularly get some very powerful letters people write to their sexually addicted self and from their sexually addicted self.  What this exercise does is allow you to play out the battle between flesh and spirit on paper (or on the computer screen in most cases).
