Pornography and Sexual Sin

Bondage of Sin

Bondage of Sin

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, –Luke 4:18

Today I would like to commend to you a wonderful ministry and resource called Setting Captives Free. This website freely offers courses to help people with various sin. Originally, this course was started by Mike Cleveland to help people overcome, by God’s authoritative Word and the help of the Holy Spirit, various sexual sins, specifically that of pornography.

 

There are a lot of resources out there, mostly books and seminars. This course however, is a notch above the rest.

This is a  60 day course, with actual accountability partners who in fact do a keep you accountable, not just pray for you and wish you a good day. Though it can be a little cheesy, and not always catered to one’s personal denomination, they make sure to do a pretty good job of sticking to the Gospel of Christ. I was actually surprised at how deep they get, and how firm they are. They mean business! If you actually want to ‘put off the old man, and put on the new’ they will be their with you every step of the way. If you are struggling with sin, or you know someone who is, by God’s grace, please make use of this ministry providing free help. They even graciously offer counselors with out pay, yet God is clearly using this ministry to transform peoples lives.

Pornography and self-gratification, lust and sexual immorality are not the only things that they address; gambling, substance abuse, self-injury, and eating issues as well.  These courses too, are at no cost. No their really isn’t a catch. If you find this a resource useful, please pass it along to a brother or sister in need.

Double standards for men and women: drunk sex and domestic violence

Interesting article that exposes a lot of things. I must yet disagree with the conclusions that author of this post came to. I hope to write more about it later. Also I want to encourage you to read the comments that people wrote on his post….

Sifting Reality

Not long ago TV counselor Dr. Phil asked a question via Twitter which was quickly deleted:

When I first saw it I didn’t get the impression that he was implying it was OK to have sex with drunk girls (or that he was asking “for a friend”).  I had figured he was trying to gauge public opinion for a future show.  There are enough men out there, most likely on college campuses, who wouldn’t think it unethical to have sex with a girl who was drunk.  So in this regard his question has merit.

More than this, I also think there is a tendency to overlook that the majority of men who would have sex with a girl who is drunk is probably drunk himself.  This facet rarely makes its way into the discussion.  All to often when both the guy and the girl are at a party drinking it…
