  1. Greetings Brothers and Sisters -

    God is GREAT!

    He has never forsaken me.

    I am 49 year old male - married - two kids (20 and 15) gainfully employed in manufacturing.

    I have found a wonderful Bible Church in my city that excites me. They take Jesus' commandment to "Convert, Baptize and Teach" very seriously - they don't skimp on the TEACH part.

    I wish I could say I'm ALL in! - but I can't. I have been fighting letting go of Pornography and objectification of women. In Bible term I am leading a double life. Somehow I ignore the Holy Spirit screaming inside of me telling me "YOU SHOULDN'T BE DOING THIS!"

    THIS IS WHY I'M TYPING HERE! If I weren't doing this I would be falling down hard right now.

    My ministry gift is encouragement. It most definitely is not impromptu prayer in a group - very awkward.

    more later - gotta make dinner - taco salad!

    God Bless us all.
     
  2. Welcome aboard @Green Pumpkin
    Glad to greet another brother in Christ Jesus to this online Christian Community!
    The addiction you speak of is too common nowadays. The webb is truly a two edged sword. What provides the ability to fellowship with other believers also opens us to the temptations which are all to prevalent in this world. Porn is but one of them, but one that seems to engulf both the believer, nonbeliever, male, female in its clutches with no letup. The difference in the who is that one has help that is available to them while the other does not.

    You'll find some very good threads here on the subject of Pornoraphy and ways to assist you in combating it. Of cause you are not alone in fighting this! As you already know the Holy Spirit touches you to conviction while providing you avenues by which you may gain help. I pray that Talk Jesus and the membership past, present & future will help and also be benefitted by your presence in being straightforward on this subject, and your ability to encourage in all areas.

    Once again be welcome brother and here a couple of links that will help on how we comport ourselves here at TJ. :)

    I'll be praying for you brother and.........BE WELCOME!
    With the Love of Christ Jesus.
