OBJECTION #2 (of 16)

“Using the words ‘Christian’ and ‘porn addiction’ in the same sentence. True Christians have repented of their sins. You should be ashamed of yourself!”


I’ve quit the Shame Game. I’m now in the Praise Game. As in praising the Holy Spirit, the One who longs to set all of the similarly afflicted free. My shame has been replaced with Holy Spirit power for righteous living. As of this writing (January 2023), this sexually healthy, single Christian male has not “acted out” sexually for 100% of days in the most recent 46 months. My shame is 46 months in the rear-view mirror. All praise and credit to the Holy Spirit, and His inner-working power to deliver believers from lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).

God is so gracious! Through it all I have come to better know the Mind and Workings of the Holy Spirit. In ways most in the Church have missed. What the wicked one meant for evil against me, God has turned to something very good (Genesis 50:20). Dear reader, He longs to do the same for you.

In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to quit the Shame Game. And step up their Praise Game. 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.

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!
