Many have been freed from a porn addiction with the help of accountability-based Escape purity programs. But has the success of accountability-based purity programs come at a price? Has the success of accountability-based purity programs—coupled with most in the Church’s well-intentioned insistence that escape is only possible with accountability—also left many behind?
THE SHAME FACTOR LEAVES MANY BEHIND
Most that want to quit porn will opt out of accountability-based purity programs once made aware that they must spill their sexual sins in a group setting. One survey puts the number at a whopping 83% . That is correct. 83% of persons wanting to quit porn are not enlisting the aid of an accountability partner/group to help them quit. One Reason: The Shame Factor is too high. Too high for them to publicly acknowledge that they have a problem and seek help.
THE HARD-TO-NAVIGATE ESCAPE LEAVES MANY BEHIND
Advocates of accountability openly acknowledge that accountability-based escape may be the hardest thing that an addict will ever do in his life. Another reason why 83% of persons wanting to quit porn are not enlisting the aid of an accountability partner/group to help them quit.
ACCOUNTABILITY-BASED ESCAPE: BUT AT WHAT PRICE?
Has the success of accountability-based purity programs come at a price? Content with having found one way of escape, has the success of accountability-based purity programs resulted in most of the Church no longer seeking less shameful, easier-to-navigate, escape-without-accountability, wholly Spirit-driven options? Has the success of accountability-based purity programs left many of the 83% behind?
THE CHURCH HAS ANOTHER OPTION
Accountability-based purity programs for overcoming sins of the flesh have been proven. In both the world and the Church. Accountability-based purity programs are all the world has to offer. But the Church has another option. A no-shame, easier-to-navigate, escape-without-accountability, wholly Spirit-driven option (Galatians 5:16).
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to build a zero-shame, easier-to-navigate, escape-without-accountability, wholly Spirit-driven purity program. Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers.
The 83% now have another option. The 83% now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
