At 8:30 PM, Mike's phone rang.
It was Jill, his fiancée. He sighed and let it go to voicemail. What could she possibly want to talk about? They had just spent the day together.
30 seconds later, she called again. And again.
20 minutes later he closed the laptop, and dialed his fiancée’s number.
"Where were you!?!" Jill yelled, half-screaming, half-crying. "I tried calling you 3 times!"
"Baby, what's wrong?" he asked, feeling guilty that he hadn't picked up.
She was almost hysterical. "While I was driving home, some guys stopped next to me at a stoplight, and said some really nasty things to me. Then they got behind me and rode right on my tail for almost 5 miles. I was freaking out! What were you doing??"
He instantly filled with shame. He couldn't tell her the truth. It was too much to admit.
He had been watching porn.
Pornography is one of America's most pervasive problems.
If you've tried weekend workshops, secular treatment, accountability software or other quick fixes, without finding lasting freedom, you're not alone. Many Christian men have done the same thing, and it's left them wondering if real answers for porn addiction even exist.
For over 30 years, Pure Life Ministries has been offering those real answers, and our students have been proving that deep and lasting change is possible! We were the first to offer a residential program specifically addressing the issue of sexual addiction, and since 1986 we have been helping men from all over the world break the grip of pornography. We understand the powerful grip of porn addiction and that this issue requires a man to look to God for true freedom.
