There were 50 and then 30…

We’ve been running 50-55 men this fall in ManSchool, week to week, as we pursued Kindgom Man.  And then, we shifted into pornography.  It got dicey.  It got tough.  It got personal and it got messy.

And we had about 30 men at our last session.

Why is that?  Ask yourself and ask the LORD … why is it that when the going got tough, I opted to skip?

No shame here.  None.  We don’t do the “shame game”.  No, this is warfare.  Your attendance at ManSchool – particularly when the going gets tough – is going to be opposed and the topic of pornography, which has so many men trapped in a vice grip, is particularly opposed.

We’ve got two more weeks.  This week we are going to talk about Soul Ties = something you don’t want to miss and next week, we’ll have testimonies from a number of men who have struggled, still struggled and are on the way to restoration.

Please make every effort to join us tomorrow at 6am … even if you haven’t been coming at all this fall.  There may be just one man who shows us tomorrow who hears one thing that leads to a breakthrough towards freedom.  Is that man you?  Is God nudging you to come?

that’s our prayer…

  1. I was recently reminded of a John Eldredge quote…… “Why is pornography the number one snare for men? He longs for the beauty, but without his fierce and passionate heart he cannot find her or win her or keep her. Though he is powerfully drawn to the woman, he does not know how to fight for her, or even that he is to fight for her. Rather he finds her mostly a mystery that he knows he cannot solve and so at a soul level he keeps his distance. And privately, secretly, he turns to the imitation. What makes pornography so addictive is that more than anything else in a lost man’s life, pornography makes him feel like a man without ever requiring a thing from him. The less a guy feels like a man in the presence of a real woman, the more vulnerable he is to porn.” —- Wild at Heart page 46.
