Mark’s #20 – Sexual Detox by Tim Challies (2010)

In preparation for last weeks sermon on sexual immorality (Ephesians 5:3-14), I read this short book dealing with the issue of porn addiction. This is an issue that is the elephant in the pew in our churches today. Sexual immorality in all its forms is the most common issue I deal with as a pastor and counselor.

In this book, Tim Challies writes primarily to men struggling with porn addictions.  He shows the damaging effects this sin has on men, women, marriages, and families.  He guides guys to a path of hope and freedom from the vicious cycle.

The price of the book was worth it from this one paragraph alone:

Here’s a promise.  You will never stop until you begin to see the monstrous nature of the sin you are committing.  You will never stop until the sin is more horrifying to you than the commission of the sin is enjoyable. You will need to hate that sin before you can find freedom from it. That means you need more grace.  You need to cry out to be changed so you do see the monstrous nature of this sin, and then you need to act, in faith that God will meet you with grace as you seek to cut of the pornography and begin the reset.

Do yourself a favor and invest the few bucks and the hour or two it will take you to read this book, it will be worth it.
