Churches Prepare to Fight Porn This Summer

by | May 21, 2018 | Charisma Archive

With pornography use reaching its height during summer months, churches are being called to provide a program to disciple their men on sexual integrity.

Research has shown that early summer brings a peak in porn searches on the internet. While the reason for this is unclear, with 68 percent of men in the church viewing pornography on a regular basis, it is likely that these men are being exposed to more triggers in the summer months. As the weather warms up, people dress in Summer clothing. For someone who struggles with pornography, this can act as a subconscious trigger that leads them into a downward spiral to going online and acting out. Some other possible explanations are that people have more time on their hands or are around family, which could bring up childhood triggers.

We live in a free society where we don’t dictate what people wear, but there are thousands of men in desperate need of accountability and discipleship so that they can respond to these triggers in a healthy way.

In 1 Corinthians 10:13, Paul says: “No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, and He will not permit you to be tempted above what you can endure, but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

If you’ve ever struggled in this area, you’ve probably been looking for that way out and wondering, Why haven’t I found it yet?

Over 500,000 men in over 70 countries have started their journey to freedom through the Conquer Series, a powerful six-DVD cinematic study.

The summer months are typically a time when churches wind down the classes that they offer due to lower attendance, but director of the Conquer Series, Jeremy Wiles, is urging churches to run the Conquer Series as a way for men to find support.

“Men find it hard at the best of times to fight this battle alone. In the summer months, it is impossible, yet that is when most churches have no programs to help men in this area,” says Wiles.

Larry Tormey leads the Conquer Series at the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Placid in Florida and will be running it this Summer.

“We have been using the Conquer Series for over a year, showing this to hundreds of men. It has been not only a godsend for these men but for me personally,” says Tormey.

Will you help the men at your church this summer and run the Conquer Series?
