Sadly, many people (not just men any more) have become enslaved to their lust. The fact that many articles and books are being written about the issue is testament to this sad reality. Many lives and families have been destroyed because of this stranglehold of sin.
Here are some good resources for anyone who struggles in this area of lust and purity.
But the best advice I can provide you is to take the first step and talk to your Pastor. He is there to help you. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. It’s the hard things of life that truly make a difference.
Michael Spencer, aka Internet Monk (iMonk) wrote a Gospel-Centered article called The Man in the Shadow of Adultery.
Joshua Harris also has a few articles relating to love and lust taken from his book Sex is not the Problem (Lust is).
- Fighting Internet Porn (aka Purity Download – Tip 1).
- Purity Download – Tip 2.
- Purity Download – Tip 3.
- Purity Download – Tip 4. Too bad Joshua (and SGM) won’t provide this great book as a free download.
