Brother, I think it just comes down to if we are going to trust the Lord with it or keep doing it our way. How much are you willing to suffer, how much are you willing to lose, and how much longer are you willing to let it go on before you do it His way?

From "False Intimacy" by Harry Schaumburg page 23:

Page 23 (quoting C.S. Lewis)
At the risk of offering a barren platitude, I suggest that sexual addiction primarily stems from the sinfulness of the human heart and a reluctance to be in a passionate, dependent relationship with God.


With a certain amount of risk, I'm going to post my personal testimony. I only finihsed it about 10 days ago. I'm 54 now. As I have struggled to get free, I often times just wanted to read about some other brother's struggle rather than someone give me advice. If the moderators don't believe this is appropriate, maybe you could email me at exreo1995 at yahoo dot com, and I would like to send it to you if you have any interest. But again I think the question you have to ask yourself is how big a price are you willing to pay before you stop? Are you willing to lose your wife, your kids, your health and possibly even your life? Losing your job is a small price to pay. Thanks, EZ

Testimony to follow in another post.

 Re:

IF I may just ask for caution when this topic is discussed. There are sister here and young ones that come on. This is a difficult topic and one that I realize affects many in the church but please be mindful and in prayer when posting and discussing this in an open forum such as this....

God Bless
