#167: Freedom from Pornography and Sex Addiction

Healing How We Approach Sexuality

Pornography, Sex Addiction

Pornography and sex addiction affects everyone, either directly or indirectly. If it’s not you, someone close to you is struggling deeply.

I believe that millions of Christians are held under the bondage of sexual addiction and are overloaded with shame and feelings of uncleanness. They feel like they are living a lie and hide in shame; feeling like the rest of the world is passing them by. Meanwhile, the people that are passing by are also struggling with it.

Porn addiction is not limited to people in the church seats. Surveys gives varying information, but they all show a need for concern. About ½ of Christians surveyed admit to viewing porn within the week, about ½ admit that porn is a problem. Depending on which survey you look at, anywhere from 50-60% of pastors admit to having a pornography addiction. Somewhere around 30-40% % of women struggle with pornography. Pornography addiction and sex addiction are major problems.

Why aren’t these kind of subjects being addressed more often? If at least half the people in your church are admitting to battling it and the leadership battles with it too, then what are we doing about it? In this episode, we want to revisit this subject and encourage our audience to bring this subject to the forefront.
