Wasteland Kings

This is the end of my story from last week. With my story about my first crush and fishing, I want to show that control had become everything in my life. It didn’t matter if it was a girl I wanted to date, pornography, or just a fishing trip; I just wanted control. That need for control of course didn’t end well and I had to choose between holding onto that need and trusting a God I could never control…

In the first blog of this series, we talked about finding hope in the struggle against pornography and I want to continue that discussion in this blog. Most people who labor under the weight of porn hope to eventually experience victory and peace through gaining greater will power and discipline. From my experience, and talking with other guys in similar situations, probably one out of a thousand guys will be able to experience real freedom from porn independently. For most…

This is another section from what I’m calling the swing chapter. This is the chapter where I transition from talking about taking control of my life to giving that control back to God.

I made that decision because I realized that if Christians are genuinely debating whether we should see the movie or read the book we’ve…

I want to use this chapter to transition from talking about how I tried to take control of my life to how I started giving it back to God. The main thing I want to focus on is that I leaned on my own understanding and it really led me astray. That was true in the case of both my addiction to porn and…

There’s hope beyond what you can see. If I could only say one thing to someone laboring under the weight of porn, it would be “there is hope”. The weight of porn is so heavy and it’s such a difficult problem to defeat that we easily become discouraged and lose hope in the face of it. No matter how bad things get, I promise that there is hope. Thankfully, I have a little more space in the blog to explain…
