Mathematics, until it is applied to find solutions to real-world problems, is of only limited academic value. Similarly, theology, until it is applied to find solutions to real-world problems, is also of only limited academic value. Sadly, in the war against the flesh, Holy Spirit theology has little more than academic value in today’s Church. In the war against the flesh, Holy Spirit theology is rarely ever applied.
UNAPPLIED HOLY SPIRIT THEOLOGY
The Scriptures have much to say about the Holy Spirit’s inner-working power to deliver believers from lusts of the flesh (e.g., Galatians 5:16, Romans 8:1-4, Romans 8:12-13, Ephesians 3:20-21). But in the war against the flesh, the Church has instead looked (almost) exclusively to accountability groups for a way of escape. How to effect change in such a deeply rooted and widely held mistaken belief that accountability is the addict’s only means of escape from lusts of the flesh?
APPLIED HOLY SPIRIT THEOLOGY
To effect change, and to awaken the Church to the possibility of wholly Spirit-powered escape, perhaps the Church needs to see the Holy Spirit theology applied in the solution of a real-world sin problem. And this is precisely what the Way of Escape Battle Plan does. It takes the Holy Spirit theology, applies it to the real-world problem of porn addiction, and out pops a Spirit-Powered Battle Plan for Purity. No accountability partner/group required. A wholly Spirit-powered solution to the problem of porn addiction.

A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to apply Holy Spirit theology in their war against the flesh. Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers (Ephesians 5:18b-19).
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
THANK YOU, HOLY SPIRIT!
