WILL TRUMP’S PLEDGE STOP THE PROLIFERATION OF PORN?

Whitehouse

With President Elect, Donald Trump’s inauguration this Friday, will he fulfill the commitment that he made during his Presidential campaign to end the spread of pornography?

In August, anti-porn group, Enough is Enough released a statement indicating that Trump had signed The Children’s Internet Safety Presidential Pledge.

The pledge was created to defend the innocence and dignity of America’s children by enforcing the existing federal laws and advancing public policies designed to…

  1. prevent the sexual exploitation of children online and
  2. to make the Internet safer for all.

While it is promising that Trump has taken a stand on pornography, 68% of church going men still view porn on a regular basis.

Jeremy Wiles who directed a Cinematic DVD Series that helps men break free from porn, says, “The Church can’t leave dealing with pornography up to government when so many of its members and so many of its Pastors are viewing it on a regular basis.”

“The Church has to take a stand on the issue of Pornography by providing sexual discipleship. Thankfully we are seeing thousands of churches starting to make this a regular part of their ministry through the Conquer Series,” says Wiles.

For most people struggling with pornography, it has been a part of their life for a matter of years, so it is not just going to go away overnight. Dr Ted Roberts, host of the Conquer Series, describes recovery as a, “two to five-year process with a miracle every day.”

The first step in this process is to join a Conquer Group, which are now offered by churches in over 50 countries around the world.

Men struggling with porn are dealing with high levels of shame and a sense of worthlessness. Adult’s Ministry Pastor at Orlando’s First Baptist Church, Chris Ogden explains, “For a lot of guys that have struggled in the area of sexuality, the lie becomes ‘This is just who I am. This cannot change. This will never go away. I might enjoy a week or a month [of sobriety] here or there but ultimately this is embedded in my soul, I can’t get free of it.’”

Men who attend a Conquer Group go through a series of exercises, which include a full disclosure of their struggle, uncovering any deep seeded lies that have taken root in their lives, then replacing those lies with the truth of God’s prophetic promises found in scripture. This really deals with that shame as Ogden recounts, “As the guys in our church walk through that, you could just see that flame of hope kind of rekindle, and going, ‘I not only believe what they’re saying is true, but I think it could be true for me.’ And I think when that switch happens, that’s when God unleashes the power in the guy’s life.”

While Trump’s pledge is a significant move in the right direction, it cannot bring this kind of heart transformation. It can only come through the Grace and Love found in Jesus Christ, administered through His body, the Church.

Thousands of churches are stepping forward and offering the Conquer Series to give their men a fighting chance in pursuing sexual integrity.

The Conquer Series is a cinematic 6-disc DVD set featuring in-depth teaching from former Marine Fighter Pilot and Pastor, Dr. Ted Roberts who shares powerful tools and bible-based strategies that he has used to help thousands of men renew their mind and find freedom from porn.

Men are desperate for something to help them break free, yet only 9% of churches have a program to help men struggling with porn. Start 2017 the right way and order the Conquer Series today.

    I started strong in the Conquers Series and went on to do the 7 Pillars with a group of great guys. Healing was truly happening in my heart and soul.

    Then, midway through the Pillars workbook at the end of the first year, I discovered my wife was having an emotional affair with a guy in our church. It turned my world upside down.

    I truly appreciated the loving support I had with the six guys around me, but as we went through the second half of the workbook in the second year, I just felt myself slowly unraveling and I had more pain and hurt from my wife’s affair and disconnect than when i started the journey.

    Now, half a year later since we completed the Pillars workbook, I am again struggling to survive. I wish we could have continued on as group and I blame mainly myself since other guys in the group went on to start other Pillars groups.

    I feel I need to get involved again. My wife and I are still together but the disconnect remains and we are stuck even as we go through individual and marital counseling. Please pray for both of us in this journey! Thanks.

      If you will continue to trust God through this desert, you will find he is faithful and will work all things together for good. My wife and I went through a dark time and were separated for a short time. One of the best lessons God taught me when I was asking him to show my wife how special she is, when she was so devastated by my involvement with porn, was when he spoke to me that that is why he gave her me. I was broken at that revelation. God gave her to me to show her how special she is. Our relationship is better having gone through that desert and our relationship continues to grow. This is a place you are passing through. Do not camp here. You are right in searching out a group of guys that you can bleed with and share your struggles and pain so they can lift you up. Ask your pastor or some of your friends or a Christian you respect to be part of a group with you. You need that support. You are not the only one that needs that support. You are not alone.
