Pornography. It’s the dirty secret of mankind, the killer of relationships, and the destroyer of lives. Statistically, more than 50% of (Christian) married men immerse themselves in this vile content. But, whether Christian or not, to deny the negative effects pornography has on one’s life would be naive. It is even proven in scientific studies that porn can: Destroy trust in intimacy between couples Lower your sensitivity to vulgarity Cause a belief that marriage is...

A lot of us have read — or at least heard — the story of Ruth. She comes up a lot as an example for the ways in which single women should remain faithful in the waiting for our husbands. Ruth had been found by her husband, Boaz, and was given much favor from him. Ruth’s mother-in-law, and a relative to Boaz, Naomi, knew the Jewish custom and instructed Ruth to lay at Boaz’ feet...

We’re not going to dance around the subject with this one, men of God. Purity is hard. But here’s the good news: It’s not impossible. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you — and, yep, that includes maintaining your purity. The thing about it is that the church often drives home the ideal that women are to remain pure. But why are we getting off the hook? Are we not held to...

A popular pastor that I follow quotes that sex can be considered three things: “gross, god, or a gift.” I believe this to be very true in our day, due to how sex outside of marriage is overrated — and underrated within the context of marriage. It is “gross” to those that have been taught their entire life that sex is bad and will cause people to look at you differently. For some, it can...

Let’s talk about sex, baby! But for real, we need to have a conversation. Something that always leaves us perplexed is how quiet believers are when it comes to sex. In many churches, conversations surrounding sex and sexual purity are non-existent. We believe sex is a GOD thing and it is beautiful in its proper context! Picture this: You’re sitting by the lake minding your own business, when, all of a sudden, someone jogs by...

Written By: George Hines Jr We all know that there is a Law of Nature that all humans intrinsically want to uphold. This issue with me was that I only wanted the parts of the law that accommodated all my personal tendencies. My entire childhood, I was a pretty precocious. I learned to be deceiving before I learned consequences. Today, I’m paying dearly for it. I began loving soft pornography around the age of 7....

Written by: Richelle Henry I remember staring at the shadow of his figure moving from the bed and out of the bedroom door.  All I could do was lay there and wonder, “how did I get I here?”  How in the world did my good ol’ Christian self, end up in this man’s bed?  I should have gone home! I should have told him no! I should have left when he told me to! But…I...

Written By: Jessica Dent At some point or another, we all reach a breaking point where we’re forced to come to the end of ourselves. When we do come to our own end, there should be something there waiting for us, offering us another option, another way out from our former lives. If at the end of yourself, you find nothing there to usher you into something new, uncomfortable, and challenging then you will likely...

When I first got married 9 years ago, I learned the value of the pursuit of prayer dealing with circumstances we faced and disagreements we had. I was taught in church how the Lord wants to be included in every aspect of our lives. He desires for us to talk to Him and pray about everything. Nothing is too small or too big for the Lord because He’s always listening. But as He listens, He...

It’s everywhere. SEX. It’s on the TV, it’s in the magazines, books, music, posters, movies… EVERYWHERE. So unless you plan on becoming a hermit and staying indoors doing nothing, then I suggest you get some ammunition and learn how to use it. After speaking with a few people through my blog and business, I thought I would write a post and tell you what helps me keep my vow of purity. Oh, just in case you...
