I've earned the right to start this blog!

I was the master of Christian hypocrites. That is why I have earned the right to start this blog. Nobody was better at playing the “double life” than me. I could go to church and raise my hands with the best of them. I could quote scriptures that would "WOW" most Christians. When it came to looking religious, I had the game down pat. I doubt anyone was better than me.

Unfortunately, I was also the master of deception. I engaged in all the things that most male sex addicts engaged in: porn, escorts, and gentlemen’s clubs. I would seem shocked when someone would cuss, yet I cussed off church premises all the time. Is it any wonder that Jesus was always busting the chops of the Pharisees? The sad news is that I am not unique. The church today is full of men exactly like I was.

“Like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, "YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY." 1Peter 1: 15-16

It’s time for us to get real. It is time for us to stop leading double lives. It is time for us to get honest with ourselves, and then get accountable with other Christian men. If we are going to lead a life that pleases God, we are going to have to learn to fight the good fight of faith.

The judgment of God is fast approaching.
