Amen and amen. Btw...I read that third paragraph "Good luck raising our kids", but "God luck" might be equally appropriate. I'm always trying to figure out ways to protect myself and in turn my 8 year old son.

thanks for this info, important stuff to be aware of

Hey Ben, it would be valuable to hear about how you found freedom in these areas and how as a traveling speaker how you find accountability when you are alone on the road.

If more leaders could be transparent about the steps they take to not fall into it, I think it would help others out that may be struggling with it.

Ben,
I appreciate you for taking a stand. I recommend all christian men (and women)have accountability software installed on their computers. We should live our lives as if Christ is sitting beside us (since he is =), but it never hurts to use some technology as a reminder.

Good stuff Ben. Every dude needs accountability software or apps that do this. Great reminder.

Great post Ben. Your challenge and insight is dead-on. Every night I hold my son (19 months old), put my cheek to his, and pray that "God would guard his heart and mind," all the while praying inside that I have the wisdom and skills teach him to do it for himself. Daily I think about Michael and how I can raise a son whose innocence is not robbed by the prolific sexuality of the age.

Ben,
Thanks for bringing up this subject. I am starting a series on my blog about my struggles and victory in this area.

Last 2 sentences are clutch. I've met many pastors afraid to acknowledge the problem and I'm sure a spouse's response is probably the same. Stories like what happened with the SEC frustrate the heck out of me!

100% agree. I get nervous every time my daughter is on her laptop doing school work. We monitor and Google is set to strict search settings but... I know the bad stuff still lurks.

Side note...on temptations and slippery slopes... what would also be nice is if some Christian women were more careful on what they expose (setting good examples, etc). Seen some outfits at church that could probably have been borderline x rated.

Right on Ben! Thanks for fighting this fight! - chris

Every hotel chain I've ever been in will turn off the porn if you ask ... no questions asked. I find it works best if you ask BEFORE you get to the room and then don't go UP to the room until they've had time to do it. Of course, you still have to take some personal responsibility and ASK...but it's not that difficult. No smirks or knowing winks from any desk clerk I've ever encountered. But who are they to you even if they do smirk?
