Even if you’ve seen this, it’s worth both watching, AND saving. Surely, you will encounter someone who needs to see this.
Here’s the YouTube address:
Porn addiction, or even occasional use , is rampant in our hyper-sexualized society. Sadly, research shows that our churches are not immune. In fact, the usage of porn is nearly identical in churches as it is in the culture at large.
Think I’m exagerating?
Look at this:
I recently interviewed David Byron for my podcast, “3 Steps to Wholeness”.
He is a volunteer for the Nathan Project.net, an organization that provides tools to those who wish to eliminate this from their lives.
I’ve started using podcasts to conduct interviews of people who can contribute to your spiritual growth.
So here’s the link to a recent one:
I’ve seen the guest speaker operate his gift for many years, and have great respect for his insights.
Hey, I just found this software that lets people leave a voice mail on a website. Don’t you just hate having to fill in a form?
Keep an eye out for it. I’m trying to embed the code now, but that’s certainly not my strong suit.
Got it on the webpages. But it’s way down in the right hand corner. Look for the Red Button.
What follows is not a political position statement. Ready for a completely different perspective of current events?
Obviously, no right-minded person is happy about what is going on right now.
The different perspective I bring is that it highlights how people react. It got me thinking about people who take an event like this from the mindset of “an activist”.
I don’t mean rioters, but people who want to help the situation. It highlights something I learned from a book called “Sacred Pathways”, by Gary Thomas.
The premise is that there are more ways to worship than just in church. Some folks are predisposed to serve Christ by addressing social injustice. Those who are moved to take action by helping, not adding to the problem, are to be commended.
Just remember the example we are given by Jesus is motivated by love, not hate.
Depending on where you went to church, you may remember when praying for Revival was commonplace.
If you are a church history buff, you know about some revivals that were awesome. It seems they all had one thing in common. They started with a small group of people praying fervently.
If this topic is unfamiliar, just google it. Or look up Azusa Street.
Today’s post asks a different question…
“Do you desire a “personal revival?”
A symptom may be just a feeling that your walk with Christ isn’t what you remember it was like at first.
Personal revivals also start with prayer.
I’ve produced an easy to consume slide deck called, Getting your prayers heard. It is free for the asking. Just let me know where to send it by asking in comments.
God bless, and look forward to a closer, more vibrant relationship with Christ.
P.S. – May I suggest you follow this blog?
If I want to leave somebody a message, I don’t want to fill in a form. I want to leave a voicemail. Call me old school, it’s just easier.
My last post mentioned I found a piece of software to make it easier for people to contact me. I was challenged by having to embed the code. Finally gave in and hired help.
Victory! (Well partially) It is up and running, but only on my web-pages. Even the pro couldn’t get it on my email. The 3 Steps to Wholeness pages all have it.
If you follow this blog, you probably have the various pages. Maybe you should follow this blog?
Many of you will be getting a “Launch” announcement soon for the #3 Steps to Wholeness” discipleship course.
I just found some software that lets people leave a voicemail on a website.
Don’t you just hate having to fill in a form, then hope somebody gets back to you? So keep an eye out for a button on this site.
I’m trying to embed the code now. But that is certainly not my strong suit.
Hope to hear from you.
