    Kill Porn or It Will Kill You

    killporn

    I wish I couldn’t relate to kids who’ve suffered through their parents’ divorce, but I can.

    I wish my wife and I couldn’t relate to the pain of miscarriages, but we can.

    I wish I had no idea how powerful the grip of pornography can be, but I do.

    When you feel the pain of something and survive it, it gives you a greater desire to help others through similar circumstances in their own lives. Why? because you relate to their pain, questions, doubts and consequences.

    That’s why this summer, I’ll be pioneering a Men’s X3 Group at Awaken. It’s based on research, study and curriculum written and produced by XXXChurch.com. XXX Church has been fighting the battle against porn alongside men and women for well over a decade now. They’re a proven name for accountability and resources.

    Don’t be stupid. Porn is a big problem.

    40 million U.S. adults regularly visit internet pornography websites.

    47% of Christians say pornography is a major problem in the home.

    Internet pornography sales bring in $4.9 billion annually. (read more stats here)

    Come on, men. Let’s not be stupid and pretend this isn’t an issue. Porn will ruin your life, your marriage, your family and much more. If you don’t kill it, it will kill you.

    A website link isn’t enough.

    I talk about XXX Church on my blog pretty regularly, I refer people there often during counseling, and I use their accountability software myself, but I don’t think a website link is enough. It’s a step. But it’s not quite enough by itself. As I and many other men have proven, we can’t fight this battle alone. When we isolate ourselves, we’re selfish and stupid (my paraphrase of Proverbs 18:1). After all, you alone on a computer hasn’t proven to be a great way to win any battles!

    The best way to beat something is to fight it together. Army guys go into battle with a battle buddy and we men need to go to war against our flesh alongside each other as well.

    I’m excited to be leading an X3 Group this summer because marriage was meant to be porn-free. Sex was created by God to be enjoyed by husband and wife only.

    MEN: If you’re struggling with porn, this is your chance to fight alongside other men who are dealing with the same issue. It won’t be easy, but anything worth doing is rarely easy. Freedom comes through honesty, humility and community. This may be the conversation starter you’ve needed.

    WOMEN: If you know your husband is struggling with this, have an honest conversation with him and see if he’d be willing to join us. Within 1 day of announcing this group, I’ve already had 2 wives contact me asking about how to get their husbands involved.

    Men can sign up for this 8-week X3 Group at awakenchurch.org/x3. It kicks off Tuesday, June 17 and spots are limited.
