Is Porn A Gateway Drug?

Looking back on the many years that I battled with sexual addiction, I sometimes wonder, ”Where did it all begin?” Was there some traumatic event that sparked it?  When was I first exposed to sexual sin?

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”

Dear Younger Me

If you could write a letter to a younger version of yourself, What would you say? Would you give yourself sage advice?  Or maybe a warning?

Fraternity: The Lost Brotherhood

One of the lists that has been lost among men in today’s society is the importance of fraternity. Having close male friends is not considered nearly as important as faith, family, and fitness.  The effect this has had on modern masculinity has been disastrous.

The Night It Almost Came Crashing Down

I’m going to share some brutal honesty and openness here. A few nights ago, everything almost came crashing down. I got a text from a girl I used to hook up with.   I had long ago deleted numbers from my phone, but I knew who it was.  It wasn’t even anything suggestive.  It was aContinue reading “The Night It Almost Came Crashing Down”

Is Porn Cheating?

I recently posted a poll on social media asking a question that often comes up when discussing pornography addiction: Is porn cheating?
