A little different blog today. An offer of help to the Influencers of Biblical-based, accountability-based purity programs. An offer of help to expand the Influencer’s ministry. A potential six-fold (6X) expansion. An offer of help for Influencers to reach the as-yet unreached 83 percent.
THE UNREACHED 83 PERCENT
In a survey of persons wanting to quit porn, participants were asked whether they had anyone in their life helping them to quit. 83% of respondents confessed to having no one . For all the success that accountability-based purity programs are reporting, the simple truth is that a whopping 83% of persons (5-of-6) wanting to quit porn are not enlisting the aid of an accountability partner/group to help them quit.
PURITY PROGRAM INFLUENCERS: UNIQUELY POSITIONED TO REACH THE UNREACHED 83 PERCENT
I am a one-man ministry with limited reach. I will reach a few with my book. But many of the unreached 83% will remain unreached. As an Influencer in the development of Bible-based purity programs, you could do so much more. You could help to start a reformation in the Church! A Holy Spirit Reformation.
Clinical Study: There was only one participant in the Way of Escape Case Study. Me! A larger clinical study is needed. With your contacts as an Influencer, you are one of a few uniquely positioned to oversee a larger clinical study.
Background and Experience: As an Influencer, you also already have an online presence. You also already have all of the necessary marketing tools in place. With your background and experience, you are again one of a few uniquely positioned to reach the unreached 83%.
You could help to start a reformation in the Church! A Holy Spirit Reformation.
ADDING A WHOLLY SPIRIT-POWERED OPTION TO YOUR PURITY PROGRAM
The Way of Escape’s Spirit-anointed apps can be seamlessly incorporated into any accountability-based purity program. Once client/subscribers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit,” a good number of them may be able to exit your program without ever having to set foot in an accountability group. And for those that may still be struggling, the accountability-based option is still there.
You have already reached X persons with your accountability-based purity program. Based on the respected Barna Group’s 83% statistic, your reach could grow to as high as 6X if a wholly Spirit-powered option were added to the front end of your purity program (see the figure above). But for now, the Way of Escape Battle Plan is the best available wholly Spirit-powered option.
A GAME-CHANGING WHOLLY SPIRIT-POWERED OPTION HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to escape porn by stepping 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 83% now have another option. The still-struggling 83% 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!
