From the book:
"According to the Christian Newswire, I am not alone in the chronic struggle with shame.
It is reported that 68% of Christian men and 50% of pastors confessed to viewing porn weekly. That is nearly 7 out of 10 Christian men, and half of all evangelical pastors!
Porn has been shown to ruin marriages and contribute to the loss of jobs, severe depression and sexual issues within committed relationships."
