Does the x3watch or x3watch pro work with the new microsoft surface tablet and windows 8 phones?
I am sory but, at this time it does not.
I recently found out that my boyfriend looks at porn. He tells me is a Christian but seems to accept that porn is normal. I understand what it does to relationships and marriages and don’t want any part of that. But I also care about him so I have been thinking about bringing it up and asking him to stop. But I am afraid it’s not my place or he will be angry at me or something like that. And if he refuses to listen do I need to end the relationship? Is it even my place to bring it up? And how do I do that respectfully and caringly?
My name is Shellie R. Warren and I’m the women’s blog editor for the site. Thanks for reaching out.
I just checked out your email and I must say that I feel it is one of the more thoughtful ones that I’ve read in quite some time.
Let’s start here. Although a lot of people tend to act like a “boyfriend” is a “husband”, by no means is that to be the case. People who are dating did not take formal vows to God about being committed to someone for the rest of their lives; therefore, the main thing that a boyfriend should be considered as is a really special friend and one of my favorite verses on friendship is here: “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” (Proverbs 27:6-NKJV) A friend deserves to hear the truth from another friend because it can be life-saving and sidebar, the fact that he feels like it’s OK to watch porn is saying that it’s OK to lust and the Bible tells us quite the opposite (I John 2:16, Colossians 3:5, James 1:14-15, I Corinthians 6:16-20-Message, for starters). So yes, as someone who cares for him deeply, although I recommend that you first go to the Holy Spirit for the right words and delivery (since we are told to speak truth in love-Ephesians 4:15), I encourage you to at least mention to him that porn is anything (and almost everything) but God’s best for his life.
As it relates to you specifically, there is a video that I shot a few years ago on the topic that I want to encourage you to watch, mostly because I want you to be prepared that he may not want to give porn up, at least any time soon and you have to be able to guard your own heart in the process:
I hope this has provided you with some insight of what to do next.
We’ll be praying for the both of you in the meantime, OK?
hey so my name is nick and im a junior in high school…since freshman year I have been having unwanted Homosexual thoughts…im ashamed to say that I have even let the thoughts get to me and allowed me to put them into actions….so my question is what is wrong with me!!?? why am I having these thoughts…they are unwanted and are destroying my life…it makes me feel as if I will never have a wife in the future…or maybe this makes me gay…but I don’t want to be!! I feel as if I am the only guy out there that’s struggling with these thoughts I don’t know how to handle this or what to do about them or how to just make them go away…somebody please help me! I need to know whats wrong with me..and im really hoping im not the only one :
It is not uncommon for guys to have these thoughts. it all depends on how you respond to them, if you push them aside and move forward not a big deal. How ever if you are acting on these thoughts you could be leading yourself down a very slippery slope.
Have you spoke to anyone you know about this? I would suggest that maybe you talk to someone in your church, parents, or a youth pastor. I know it will be uncomfortable to do this but, it will get you accountability that is needed. Please know that we are praying for you and that you are not alone.
