Truth about christian dating relationship
This all crashed and burned a year later when our relationship ended, and I discovered I had been lied to all along about his “progress.” Several years have passed, and I am currently being pursued by a wonderful and godly man; however, last night he opened up and shared with me his own struggles with pornography.
I am tired of being lied to, not knowing what to believe and what not to believe, how to forgive, and what to be OK with.
In the two churches in which I have served in leadership in the last 10 years, we eventually had to make it a systematic practice to have pointed conversations with men we were considering for deacon or elder positions to make sure that they were not viewing pornography.
I feel very naive about the topic, and honestly as a woman, have a hard time relating and understanding how to handle these situations. I want to get to the specific questions you’ve asked, so I won’t take a lot of space to go over the horrible problems caused by the use of pornography (most of us would agree on them anyway), but just so I’ve said it: Pornography is a destroyer of lives.
