    Freedom From Bondage

    Is there something that is preventing you from becoming everything that God created you to be? Are your sinful habits holding you back from true joy and fulfillment? The enemy can keep you captive with his sinful enticements and God's spiritual armor can help you battle the enemy's temptations. Through God's grace you can find freedom from bondage and experience the abundant life God has for you.

    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

    7 Good Reasons To Stop Looking at Porn Right Now

    There are certain topics I return to on a regular basis and, if you are a regular reader of this site, you know that one of those topics is pornography. I return to it again and again because I see the damage it is doing and I see the despair of those who are caught up in it. My goal for today is simple: I want to give you 7 good reasons you need to stop looking at porn right now.

  1. Helping those in need

    First and most importantly..... PRAY FOR THEM! you did not mention whether or not they were a believer so it must be said that without Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit it is a long shot that they will ever conquer their addiction. i say this as one who has, through Christ, conquered drugs, alcohol, and pornography.
    Secondly, and equally important... your friend is going to need a friend. So be there for them without judging them. Do not compromise the truth of your conviction or the truth of God's word. But you can be there in Love. Love is an action word and is a powerful witness. i hope this helps.
    "Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ." Peter 1:2
     
  2. Prayer is definitely the number one thing we can do for anyone.
    Ask your friend if they would be open to Pastoral counseling.
    Also very important- while we do not want to be "judgmental" we certainly need to be cautious of enabling this type of behavior.
    I will be praying for your friend.
     
  3. alright then....

    i would encourage you and your friend to read Galatians, chapter 6. Also, if you feel comfortable enough to do so, it is helpful for you to maybe share some of your own struggles. As a child of God, it is our responsibility to our brothers and sisters in Christ to call them out when sin is knowingly and accepted in one's life. This is not to be confused with judging but rather it is done out of love. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin in our own life not out of judgement or condemnation but out of love.
    We strive to be Christ like in our own life not out of guilt or because it's what we think we should be doing, but it is out of love for our Savior who shed His blood and died for us.
    Also, you can share I Corinthians 10:13
    i will continue to pray for both you and your friend. This is an excellent opportunity for both of you to grow in you faith.
     
  4. I can pray for the person to stop once he/she is truly willing to stop.
    Let me know.
    I usually endeavor to handle the situation from the source, meaning why
    do they want to do these addictions again?
    Then I can also ask God to release them from the situation that is causing
    the need for addcitions.
    Let me know
