Masturbation and Lust

I’m excited to have a guest post from Hugh Houston, pastor and author of Jesus Is Better Than Porn. Pornography and masturbation almost always walk hand in hand.  This was a huge problem for me.  I know many people have strong feelings on this subject. It is a controversial subject, even among Christians.  As IContinue reading “Masturbation and Lust”

Winning The Small Battles

There’s an old adage that says, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” The idea is that you can’t build something as great and mighty as ancient Rome quickly.  It takes time, effort, and patience to build something that is strong and lasting.   Too many men, in their battles with porn and sex addiction, try toContinue reading “Winning The Small Battles”

Beware Your Dark Side

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand – Mark 3:24 Are you where you want to be in life?

H.O.P.E.

There’s an old proverb that says, “A man can live about three weeks without food, three days without water, three minutes without air, but he cannot live three seconds without hope.”  Why is hope so important?

The Re-Read, Re-Write, Re-Word, Re-Apply Bible Reading Method

How often do you read your Bible? If the answer is anything less than daily, you have some work to do.   I know it can be hard to find the time.  I know some parts of the Bible aren’t exactly a page-turner.  But we need to immerse ourselves in Scripture daily.   Brothers, everything we needContinue reading “The Re-Read, Re-Write, Re-Word, Re-Apply Bible Reading Method”
