Video: “A pastor’s Disclosure”

Video: “Disclosure”.

    Absolutely! I have found disclosure to be essential to my recovery. I was a Pastor also and I found it very hard to be able to talk about this. But, when I did is when I finally started my process of real recovery.

      Hey Lostinporn,
      very true, talking about the issue is therapeutic. It is thereafter important to get a solution to fill the gap created. What is your story? How did you get out?

        I got out by being honest with myself first. I had to stop believing lies about myself. I was being told I was normal (and I wanted to believe that) but I read in the Bible that God offers freedom from sin. I didn’t have that and I wanted it. I wanted it really bad. I decided I wasn’t going to settle for less. Then, I started blogging–opening up about my problem for the first time. Next, I opened up to some close friends. Now, I’ve been expanding the circle of opening up and have been becoming free of my lies. I’ve also been getting involved in discipling others. Prayer, Bible Study, working for others, etc. It’s all working to set me free from being a slave to sin. This is exactly what I’ve been longing for!

        Wow…what a nice story. I also got a lot by sharing the issue I was going through. However, one of the more practical things that has helped me is going through the book “Every man’s battle” by Steve Arterburn. That book revolutionised by walk and I can now tell you that the blood of Jesus has delivered me 100% for the mastery of sexual sin over my life. I went through this book with several men who were struggling and we had to very honest with each other on our failures and finished it off with a prayer & fasting retreat where we went to seek God’s face and he came and found us. I learnt that there are 3 sources of sin; the devil, other people and our sinful nature. So, we dealt with the sinful nature within through 1 Cor 6:12-14. A new realization for me was the devil was defeated, he is defeated by the cross and will be defeated when he is thrown to the lake of sulfur. We have to develop discipline through the words of Titus 2:11-12.For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age… Please study this word and memorise it. Use it as a sword to fight the temptations that come in your time of need.

        I went through that book too several years ago. Although I thought it was good, it didn’t have the results I was looking for. I think the problem was that I was alone. I’m guessing that the difference between the success you found and the lack of success I found was the support you had. At least that seems to be the difference I’m finding now. The support I have at this point in my experience is making all the difference.

        Hey, that is so true. You need to be in the safety of others who have come out or are getting out to find encouragement in the Lord in that fellowship. Thanks for your thoughts. 😀

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to
    generate a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get
    anything done.
