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!!!

It’s the last show of Season 2 and you don’t wanna miss this. Jeannie Wilbourn shares her testimony “Seeking Sanity” where she reveals to us the years of sexual abuse she suffered as a child, her fall into addiction, and her fight to get sober.
