A4P Guest: I am a born again Christian man. I am 22 years old, a senior in one of Universities in Ethiopia. I lead a Christian fellowship in campus. I’ve been following you, probably, since day one. I grew up in church and I don’t exactly know when I came to Christ. The only thing I am sure of is that I am in Christ, not in the world. I have devoted Christian families. Both my parents serve in the local church. I have one younger sister. I have a healthy childhood as far as I can remember. I am telling you this so you know my background. I heard many people saying, “People who have problems with porn have no healthy background and childhood history.” So, my story is a bit different. My background is good and healthy. Here is my question. I struggle with porn for the last five years. I tried pretty much everything, praying, fasting, crying and confessing my sin to brothers but I’m still in it. I sometimes come to it once a month and sometimes, every day, trying to take over my entire life. I get too obsessed with it 24/7. I love God and want to follow Christ faithfully. I have no desire to be in the world. All my visions and dreams are to live and die for the glory of God but this thing is in my life. Where shall I go? Where is my healing? I don’t want to quit fighting but at the same time, I am tired! Very tired and frustrated. Does God care? Continue reading Healthy Childhood But – – –

The Bible says,
“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.” 1 Peter 3:7 Continue reading Quick Advice to Husbands
The LORD’s prayer is something we Christians tend to see as a creed or benediction but it is much more than that. It is actually an outline of prayers, a set of prayers that shows us the most effective way of not only to pray but also expectations, attitudes and mindsets to have when we approach the throne of the Most High God in prayer.
Let’s see for today only one line of the LORD’s prayer: Continue reading Act Like Little “gods”
Today I read 2 Chronicles 15. I mean, I studied this chapter but I also listened to the Book of Romans.
My friends, I can’t tell you how much I love the Book of Romans. It was the first book that the Holy Spirit opened my spiritual eyes to understand for the first time while I was in my bedroom in New Delhi, India, in the middle of the night. (Please don’t ask, “When?” It was 100 years ago.) Continue reading Man Forsaking God
Cohabitation (living together before marriage) seemed to be the topic of old times. We hear a message about cohabitation rarely in churches.
“It offends many people! We shouldn’t offend people, we should lovingly call them to Christ.” Continue reading Living Together Before Marriage
When a man wants to marry a girl because he lusts after her body, he can present himself to her as the most romantic man on this planet earth.
And for a girl, there is nothing as attractive as a romantic man. She thinks that he is madly in love with her. But the truth of the matter is he is not really in love with her. Is he ready for a long term commitment such as marriage? Oh, no, he is not. But does he care if he even goes through the wedding process to have her body for a night? No, he doesn’t care.
