The Porn Phenomenon and its Potential Impact On Mission Recruitment & Retention
Presented by: Bishop David Perrin
Too often, men and women have no where to go when they struggle with a secret sin. Let’s stop shooting our wounded. Instead, help people find healing and restoration. No one is immune from the enticing trap of pornography. A Christianity Today survey showed about 70% of men and 30% of women in the church say they have an ongoing struggle. Science shows that watching pornography taps into our brain’s powerful neurochemistry, which can quickly lead to habitual use. Thankfully, the brain has a lifelong ability to wire and rewire itself, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides believers the supreme advantage in breaking free. Discover why people become obsessed and how to break the cycle of porn use.
