by Zach Spencer In the concluding episode of Jim Rose’s Tour De Force series Building Integrity in Relationships, Jim tackles the question of Moral Excellence, what it is, what it isn’t, and explains how Accountability Relationships are crucial for building and maintaining moral excellence in the Christian Life. Of course we have included a larger version in our Help and Support Center. We also are providing the video and audio available for download below. All of these videos are also available here.
As my personal burden for the issue of Internet pornography has grown, I have seen in the testimonials of our members how pornography has broken relationships.

I know Covenant Eyes is not a perfect program (nothing is) and I know that it is merely a tool (one that can be ill-used).
