Addicted To Something Other Than Love

One of my ministry heroes, Ed Stetzer, has been blogging about The Pornification of American Culture recently. So far, he's posted three articles: Of course, if you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I've written a good bit about this myself... so I decided to not only link to his (excellent) articles but also give you a recap from a 3-year old post, Dear Person Who Googled Porn...
It helps me, as a recovering addict to pornography, to make a couple of things clear to folks:
  1. the word addiction explains the compulsive hamster wheel cycle of suck that is porn - it doesn't excuse the way it hurt my wife or my churches, even when they didn't know what was going on
  2. talking about porn without talking about masturbation is like discussing peace in the Middle East without discussing religion - which makes it INSANELY difficult to talk about in your typical church setting.
So you don't have to do too much searching, here's the direct links to those articles I've written:
