I don't know how many of you check out Tim Challies' blog, but I really appreciate many of his posts and find them encouraging. He began a series on pornography, specifically for men, this week, and I think it's right on. Ladies, if you don't think that this is a struggle or temptation for your man, I have to say that you are naive. Maybe 1% of men don't struggle with lust, but according to my husband, that number is probably too high. I am so thankful for a godly husband who loves me enough to be honest with me about his struggles, instead of trying to 'sweep them under the rug' so as to continue to hide sin.
Tim is going much farther than 'you need to quit looking at porn' in this series. He is focusing on the soul-corroding effects of a man who feeds on these images and how wives, families, perceptions about women, and society as a whole are affected.
Please take the time to read and follow the rest of this series. Talk about it with your husband. Forward the link to others. Satan has a choke-hold around so many and Christians need to reclaim sexual purity and victory in this realm. Part I Part II
