There are so many people who suffer from a void in their life. They don't realize what that void is, yet they try filling it with everything but what is needed. Allow me to share my thoughts on the things we try to fill that void with. Alcohol: Many take their first drink at the… Continue reading Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places
Lord, this world needs a Savior This whole notion of keeping up with the Jones' is quite literally tearing the family apart. What started off several generations ago as trying to be better off than our parents has nearly destroyed marriage completely. We have married couples that do not get to spend time together because… Continue reading Sunday Music: Siloam | Despair
I grew up reading comic books. My very first one was a copy of the Teen Titans that I bought at a local convenient store while visiting friends. It was so cool to see the bad guys losing. The heroes always won back in those days. I remember reading my first copy of Superman and… Continue reading We Need A Hero

“Now, there are two incorrect thoughts people have about addiction that I would like to address in the rest of this post. These are ideas I’ve seen in those trying to help an addict, as well as in addicts themselves.

Last Sunday I spoke at our church on the subject of Pornography. Pornography has been around for centuries, but it has never been so widespread and prolific as it is today. Today we have the internet. That means any child, teen or adult can instantly stream on to their computer, phone or tablet, graphic sexual images and videos, without anyone knowing about it.
How bad is it? It’s really bad. And it’s not just the religious moral right who are concerned. Health professionals and educators concerned, because they see how it’s messing up peoples’ lives. Doctors and neurosurgeons are concerned because they are seeing what porn is doing the brain.
Porn Facts & Stats
If you think I’m overstating or overplaying this in some way, have a look at some of these statistics. These are the most recent I could find. They are all based on credible studies carried out…
