As a pastor and a professional counselor, I've noticed an alarming trend among many Christian men - they've simply given up in the battle for their own sexual purity. Even though the activities these men engage in - like Internet Pornography - are often in violation of their very own conscience, they've simply acquiesced and are no longer even fighting back. One big reason men give up in this way is because of their miserable track record. After failing repeatedly, many men surrender to the lies that they cannot change, and they're going to fail anyway, so what's the difference? By giving up in this way, the enemy of their soul has them exactly where he wants them - defeated and neutralized - far from the warrior poets they're called to be in the kingdom of God.
