If you are struggling with pornography, you are not alone. Countless men . . . women . . . teens . . . and even children have been trapped in the snare. Perhaps you are a Christian and think you must be the only Christian involved in pornography, adultery, or other sexual sin. Wrong. See some of the surprising statistics here.
Do you want to break free? You can . . . with God’s help. First, admit you have a problem. Then talk to God about it.
If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts. (1 John 1:8-10)
I have just built a page on Find Christian Links that offers help to those who are struggling or know someone who is. You will find scriptures, websites, ministries, and even blogs. If you need help . . . or know someone who does . . . or are interested in starting a ministry for people who have fallen into this life-damaging trap . . . take some time to browse. Visit the websites. Follow the blogs. Meditate on the scriptures. And then pray about your next step.
One wonderful tool I found is Covenant Eyes. This company offers not only filtering but also an accountability plan. I encourage you to check them out to see how they can help you as an adult, your spouse, and help protect your children from the temptations. Here is a blurb from their website:
What if you could send a report of your Internet activity to a friend or mentor so you could talk about where you struggle online? What if they saw the sites you visit, the YouTube videos you watch, and the search terms you use? How would this change how you use the Internet? How would it help you lead by example?”
Please let me know if you are familiar with other ministries, Christian websites, or blogs that you’d like to see added to this page. Or if you have a testimony you’d like to share with our readers about how God helped you overcome, that would be wonderful. I’d be happy to keep it anonymous. Just send me an email at karen@FindChristianLinks.com.
Always remember . . . no matter what the problem or how big the challenge . . .
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. (Philippians 4:13 AMP)
