Responding to sexual temptation in a high tech society
Author
Richard L Thompson
Abstract
The specific concern addressed in this project is Internet addiction with an emphasis on Internet pornography. The author suggests that such an addiction in the life of a believer is a matter of idolatry. He points out that the normal secular counseling strategies with their emphasis on addiction as "disease" and even many of the "so called" Christian strategies fail to address the spiritual issues involved in ways that bring real healing and wholeness. The author read extensively in the literature published on this topic and interviewed those involved with the addiction including victims, counselors and the abusers themselves. He then developed a Bible study addressing the topic in a way that used law/gospel leading to confession and absolution.
