    Yes, I am a sinner, and I was weak in this sin. Now, I am able to control my desires through the love of Christ. I am ashamed of my past, but know my future!

    Thanks Vince for addressing the elephant in the room. For speaking straight to us. For speaking the Word over us. Your love for the Lord and the vision you have to see men set free to be the Godly men He desires us to be is a huge huge blessing. Thank you.

    I used to be a chronic masturbater, but have since overcome that temptation with the help of my wife and my brothers in Christ. I used to masturbate to take back some control of my life, when I was intimidated by women, and then when I was not intimidated by women, I just kept up the repetitive sin cycle because it was just something I didn’t feel the need to address, and society was agreeing with me. I still struggle with the thought of lusting after women that are not my wife from time to time, but I no longer act on it and MOST days repent almost immediately because I have matured and want to keep being more like Jesus every day. I AM NOT PERFECT, but I CAN be better today than I was yesterday, every day for the rest of my life and try to help others by being open and honest about my struggles to let other men know they are not alone. I pray for all my other brothers that are not currently able to be open and honest about their sin struggle that this would encourage you to open up to SOMEONE in your life that you trust and has the relationship with Jesus that you want to have. Find that person or group of people in your life brothers and bare your soul, stop hiding in the shadow of your sin and let His light shine in all corners of your life. Amen.

    I certainly needed that today. I feel so unworthy to even attend worship. Like a menstrual rag. I need to pick up this book again this afternoon. It wholeheartedly reminds us of what Vince said, that in certain moments we love that sin more than our savior. Notice sexual immorality is to be FLED and, NOT EVEN A HINT OF. I continue to pray for the gift of repentance, thankful I feel the weight of the shame, restore my joy and don’t turn your face from me. Keep striving for the obedience amd remember the joy it brings when we succeed. Thank you for being direct. It needs to be said and felt.

We truly need each other to help thru the struggles of life to become a better man of God.

None of us are perfect, but together we will be stronger and be able stand against the snares of the devil. May God continue to bless you and your ministry! God speed my brother in Chirst.

    Jesus, we submit to you and we ask the Spirit to bring us back to our senses like the prodigal son in Luke 15:17.

    Please show us our idols for what they really are, and where we have left open doors for the enemy to enter.

    We repent and turn back to you, and ask the Holy Spirit to please transform us into the men/sons/brothers/husbands/fathers/friends that you want us to be. 2 Cor 3:16-18
