Since I preached the message "Pornography Kills" last year, it has been, by far, the most downloaded sermon I have posted on the internet. As I have said from the beginning, that has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with many people being devastated by this evil epidemic. People are looking for answers and searching for help, that's why they are willing to download and listen to a sermon from a nobody! They are hurting and searching. Sin has left them torn and they need hope.
Praise God, there is hope! There is hope in the Gospel, in Christ, in the grace of God.
Along with the sermon, the elders at CEFC developed a booklet that provides Scripture and a host of sound, biblical resources for those struggling with pornography. Recently, the booklet has been updated with a couple of more helpful resources.
You can find the updated version of the booklet by logging on to sermonaudio.com/clovisevfree and clicking on the "e-docs" tab.
