(Ad) Pornography

Remember when you could watch television without being shocked by scandalous commercials? Are you uncomfortable with your children surfing the internet for fear of the pornographic images they might see?

You're not alone. Virtually all Americans are being bombarded with pornography through television and the internet. It is destroying the lives and families of countless individuals.

And like addictive drugs, pornography seems to take over the lives of so many people. They see no escape, no way to be free from the compulsion to view graphic sexual images and behavior.

The good news is that freedom IS possible! The battle against the poison of pornography can be won!

Thank you to all who were able to attend our biblically-based, family-friendly presentation on the subject of pornography. (December 2015)
