Fighting Porn and Sexual Lust

Links to helpful artillery in the battle against sexual lust and idolatry:

“Somebody’s Daughter” (“The latest statistics I’ve heard state that 70 percent of lay leaders are struggling, and 40 percent of pastors are struggling. The statistic that I feel is most important is that if you open your eyes and look at our culture, 100 percent of kids are going to be facing this stuff because it’s in our magazines, iPod’s, cell phones, Internet, cable television and billboards-it’s coming from everywhere,” Siler said.)

Zack, Miri, and the Pornification of our Culture (“Whenever a human is reduced to a commodity, there are going to be ramifications.”)

Slow Descent Into Fornication (One young man’s story and a list of links to helpful articles on Boundless.)

Porn-again Christian (A free e-book by Mark Driscoll.)

Pornography: A Grave Challenge to Marriages (“Pornography is on the offensive against you. It’s coming after you.”)

Pornography, the Heart, and Sermon Prep (An interview with John Piper: “Most of you have a thousand images in your brain. That really makes sermon preparation hard, but not impossible. He died to purify our conscience, although you make your job a lot harder if you keep going to that cesspool.”)

Three of the best resources from which I have benefited and have shared with others:

Lust (An insightful article by Dr. Dan Allender: “Destructive lust is any consuming desire that is either out of bounds or out of balance.”)

Designed For Desire: God’s Design For Sexuality (A free PDF booklet…a helpful overview of sexuality as designed by God.)

False Intimacy: Understanding the Struggle of Sexual Addiction (A “classic” on the subject.)

UPDATE:

Here’s another excellent resource:  Breaking Pornography Addiction

  2. Great job. Thank you for helping to get the word out about sexual addiction. I provide counseling for people suffering with sexual addiction and feel this addiction isn’t mainstreamed enough and many people suffer in silence or are not taken seriously when they try and discuss their addiction.
