Life Exposed to & Hooked on Pornography

Original Air Date: December 9, 2013

Pornography is not just a sexual addiction.. it’s an addiction of the mind. It starts out small and grows bigger & bigger, feeding on the need for power and control. It distorts views of women/men and causes conflict and division in relationships.

If you are struggling with this & looking for a way out, you MUST watch this new episode of Coffee & Christ, featuring Steven Sawyer- “Life Exposed To & Hooked on Pornography”. Listen to his story about how he got sucked into it… and how he was pulled out of it. You don’t want to miss it!!!
