Your workshop meant very much to me as I could relate very well to your own story. Only about two months ago I stopped watching porn for good – due to some very important truths making their way from my mind into my heart. I am not gritting my teeth anymore – or holding my breath as you put it.
Anyway I have never heard such a straightforward approach of the topic before in any of the churches I attended in Germany. For this I see 2 main reasons:
Despite the scripture and the example of Jesus and Paul and others, many of the good leaders apparently believe that a true lasting walk in purity can only be attained by some lucky ones and therefore proclaiming such a walk as a standard would tend to bring condemnation on people.
Secondly I am afraid that many of the precious leaders don’t walk in true purity themselves. Therefore there is a massive need for people like you pouring out their heart to people over here, both in and outside of the church….
With tons of appreciation for your boldness and dedication
