Mike will share about the “Way of Purity,” a free 60-day course for those who struggle with pornography.

Jody will talk at length about “A United Front,” their free course for spouses of those ensnared in pornography addiction.

Listen to last week’s episode and hear Mike and Jody tell the story about how they started this ministry.

      Hello there,

      I’m currently wrapping up a study of the end-times on my blog, Reflections on the Christ, at http://chasong.blogspot.com.

      There’s been talk of guillotines being imported into the United States and other scary bits of news.

      However, I am discussing about them from a prophetic point of view and hoping to stimulate more research and personal study of God’s word and the end times.

      If you have the time, feel free to drop by, express your thoughts, and maybe even shed some light for others who come by. I’d be honoured.

      Keep shining.

      Cheers

      Found this looking for “Setting Captives Free” website. Do you know what has happened or why it stopped being a website. Do you know where that kind of program is now. It was great and I loved sending people to it.

        Hi Rick,

        I recently was searching for the program as well. The founder of the program has changed the focus of his ministry. You can still purchase a copy of the Way of Purity from Focus Publishing. It’s the exact same course that was online but in a paperback form. I hope that helps.

        Hello, you’ve taken a huge step coming forward to admit that you need help. Since I’m not sure if you’re coming at this from a male or female perspective, let me offer 2 blog posts for you to read:

        (male, but probably both) https://www.covenanteyes.com/2010/07/14/three-steps-to-kick-the-habit-of-masturbation/
        (specifically for females) https://www.covenanteyes.com/2012/06/25/how-do-i-kick-masturbation-addiction/

        Start there. Let us know if you have further questions. GOD is for you! If you have faith, then I invite you to cry out to Him.

        -Peace, Chris

        Hello there, I was too 4 years ago, satan has his clutches on me through pornography and masterbation etc… BUT, chains cannot be completely broken off without the work in of God in our lives… For me what happened was I was so chained to this addiction I couldn’t ever break free in my own strength and it just so happened that I ran across Billy graham sermons from the 1950’s and these began working truth into my soul, ya see, the BiBle is so true, it is the very word of God preserved for every human being to be free from sin and Death!!!!! Hallelujah!! There is hope!!! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God!!! Listen to the word of God!! Cry out to the Lord continuously hourly day and night, be sincere from the Heart, tell him your done serving sinful pleasures of this world and ask him to deliver you and forgive you AND HE WILL!!! continue listening / reading and seeking him daily, confessing these thing to him, believe on Jesus Christ!! If you are desperately wNting to turn from evil and be an upright person you can truly be free! These things will be defeated in Jesus name!!! I have been 100% free from porno, masterbating, drinking, stealing, lyng, cheating, and in the word daily for 4 straight years! lust still tries to torment be daily but I must renew my mind with the word of God and walk by the spirit and I will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.. Read Romans 6-8 for help.. Call upon the name of the Lord out of a desperate and sincere heart and be free!

        Hi Douglas, I’m not sure why it won’t let you take it again. There are many other options out there if this one won’t work, for example: http://www.purelifeministries.org/#counseling

      I really wish setting captives free was still available. there are so many people that can’t afford the books and need the help as well as the one on one it had.

      I turned to Setting Captives Free one night in desperation trying to find freedom – that was the start of my recovery journey!

      It doesn’t look like they still have the course available online now. I now work with KingdomWorks Studios who have produced the Conquer Series – if you are looking for a support group then a Conquer Group run at a local church is a great place to start. http://www.conquerseries.com

        Hello, Joe – online support suggestions: https://www.bravehearts.org or http://www.purelifeministries.org/#home You’re right that without Christ and community (accountability), it is almost impossible to break free. I hope and pray you are able to find the freedom you so desperately desire.

      Hello, I started off with porn but unfortunately I dovetailed into adultery and fornication. I have been married for 12 years but I’m ashamed to say that each of those years I’ve cheated on my wife even though i always repent and promise not to do it again .I’ve now stopped for a few weeks but I need deliverance and a support group to get through this. I’m saved and know the Lord.
