In this episode, we talk with Chuck Lawless, a noted conference leader and author who is the dean of graduate studies and ministry centers at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
As president of a church consulting firm and a seminary leader, Chuck constantly interacts with pastors and pastors in training. In those conversations, he hears too many stories about the horrible toll pornography addiction is taking on the lives of pastors and Christian men, their families and their churches.
Recent studies indicate about 1 in 4 smartphone owners store porn on their handset, and 67% of young men say viewing porn is an acceptable way to express one’s sexuality. Even worse, almost two-thirds of Christian men say they watch porn at least once a month.
Chuck has some excellent insight about how men can be set free from this addiction — or protected from falling into it in the first place.
