Porneia – A Global Tragedy

DVD

Wherever the Internet is regularly accessed around the globe, pornography is changing the way humanity views sex. The word porneia (πορνεύω) appears 26 times in the New Testament of the Bible and is the root of the English words “pornography” and “pornographic”. Finding out what God has to say about pornography is crucial for protecting our minds and homes from a perverse view of sex.

Drawing from the latest research from neuroscience, Brad Huddleston explains the effect that pornography has on the brain. Drawing from both brain science and the time-tested wisdom of the Bible, strategies are offered that will bring healing to those affected by the scourge of pornography.

Trapped – Finding Freedom from Pornography

DVD

There’s a secret many men labour to conceal. It’s a secret that crosses all age, socioeconomic, and racial boundaries. It’s hiding an affair of the mind fuelled by pornography. It starts with a quiet compromise. Soon, the shame and fear of being discovered, and the possibility of losing everything including those they love, keep men from revealing their secret obsession. They’re trapped and feel powerless to escape.

But there is hope for someone caught in the trap of pornography. The purpose of this series is to expose the dangers of pornography and to offer help and a way out for those caught by its seduction. You’ll hear firsthand from a husband and wife and three men who lived the nightmare and now work to expose the lies of pornography and help others by telling their stories.

Eyes of Honour – Jonathan Welton

Book

After struggling with sexual temptation for years, author Jonathan Welton devoted himself to finding a way to be completely free from sexual sin. He read books, attended 12-step groups, and participated in counselling—with no success.

Spurred on by countless friends and acquaintances who shared a similar broken struggle and longed for freedom, the author searched Scripture—there he found the answer and shares it with you in a compassionate, nonjudgmental way.

Eyes of Honour helps you understand how to live a life of purity by realizing:

  • Your personal identity.
  • How to view the opposite sex correctly.
  • Recognizing your enemies.

Eyes of Honour is honest and refreshing, offering hope and complete freedom and deliverance from sexual sin. Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and your salvation guarantee rescue from the appetite of sin. Your true identity empowers you to stop agreeing with the lies of the enemy that ensnare you.

Beggar's Daughter - Jessica Harris

Book

In college, at the height of my struggle, I reached out to a popular Christian purity speaker. I told her I struggled with pornography and asked if she knew of any resources. She responded in a letter and said, “There aren’t any resources… maybe you’ll be the first to provide those.”

I’m not the first, but I am one….

For so long, Christians have looked at lust and pornography as ``men's`` issues. Statistics indicate that more and more women are struggling with this as well. What's it like to be a woman with this struggle in the church? How do you find freedom? How do you find healing? Can God still love you? Will He still use you? Christian writer and speaker, Jessica Harris, answers these questions by walking the reader through her own journey, from the rags of pornography to the riches of grace.

Sexual Sanity for Women - Ellen Dykas

Small Group Resource

Sexual Sanity for Women guides participants to understand God's good design for sexuality, the underlying reasons they struggle with sexual brokenness, and how the grace and truth of Jesus Christ can be applied to their struggles. Change begins as deeper heart issues are uncovered, and women learn that they are well-loved daughters of God who will find healing and wholeness as they live out God's Word in their relationships.

This workbook of twenty lessons is ideal for a one-on-one mentoring, university students and women's groups.

``In our postfeminist, hypersexualised culture, women are confused about what the Bible teaches about sexuality. Sexual Sanity for Women is an eminently practical small group resource that will minister to women who are addicted to pornography, struggle with same-sex attraction, feel guilty from a lifestyle of promiscuity, have been sexually abused, or just need to understand what Christianity has to say about sexuality... A must-have resource for every women's ministry``.

Getting Real - Edited by Melinda Tankard Reist

Book

Assembling writers, advocates, and academics, this volume spotlights the sexualisation and objectification of girls and women in the media, popular culture, and society. From clothing and music to magazines and toys, this collection explores today’s advertising and merchandising techniques and the effects they have on the premature portrayal of girls as sexual beings. Arguing that the sexualisation of girls leads to self-destructive behaviors such as eating disorders and self-harm as well as to increased anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, this account blames corporations, the media, and the sex industry. Informative and spirited, this record will interest critics of the “pornification” movement.

Big Porn Inc: Exposing the Harms of the Global Pornography Industry

BOOK

The unprecedented mainstreaming of the global pornography industry is transforming the sexual politics of intimate and public life, popularizing new forms of hardcore misogyny, and strongly contributing to the sexualisation of children. Yet, challenges to the industry continue to be dismissed as uncool, anti-sex, and moral panic. Unmasking the lies behind the selling of porn as entertainment, this book reveals the shocking truths of an industry that trades in violence, crime, and degradation while discussing topics such as racism in gay male porn, the use of animals in porn, child pornography, and BDSM (bondage, dominance, sadism, and masochism). Fearless and controversial, this examination will challenge the current view of pornography.
