The battle of Sexual sobriety

St_michaelMen who have not felt the pull of sexually-driven behaviors, have not really entered the fight. 

One of the great battle stories in the Bible is in Revelation 12 where "there was war in heaven.  Michael and the angels under his command fought the dragon and his angels.  And the dragon lost the battle and was forced out of heaven.  This great dragon — the ancient serpent called the Devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world — was thrown down to the earth with all his angels."  Revelation 12:7-9

I John 5:19 puts it bluntly:  "We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one."  Steve Gallagher is a brother who understands that and fearlessly steps into the battle for sexual sobriety.  His book, At the Altar of Sexual Idolatry, is an crucial book for men.  When I read that book I said to myself, "This guy gets it."

Here’s a piece by Gallagher describing the battle we’re in.  Check out the pure life ministries website while you’re there.
