Next week I do another purity seminar for group of guys in Spring City, PA. I often say that purity seminars are a bluff--because they are really not about purity as much as they are about the heart issues that cause men to defile their hearts with lust. I get so encouraged when responses come in like this one where someone was delivered from a ROOT issue. This is from the administrative pastor where I did a purity weekend:
I finally found some time to sneak away to the mountains for some refreshment and time with God. Over the past 24 hours I read your book, ”To Kill a Lion” which I’d only previewed earlier. I’ve been giving the book away or encouraging others to buy it for months. Several weeks ago one of my spiritual sons brought me his marked up copy and with a plea that I help him pray through the 8 R’s, within a week his estranged mother came miraculously back into his life for a visit and he found the anger was gone, forgiveness had truly happened and his sexual struggle had changed.
Wow, what an anointed book my brother! This is the best and most straight to the point book on addictions, especially sexual, that I’ve read, You hit the enemy where it didn’t cripple but killed, you hit it right on, the lion can be killed!! Your fresh approach is so honest and insightful to those of us who are regularly ministering to men with bad roots, of course your transparency releases my faith personally and for every guy who reads the book; we can kill the lion and reduce the ocean size. Bad roots produce bad fruit seems so logical, the deceiver keeps the blinders on so many for so long. It’s not even a grafting process, it’s kill the roots and prune the vine…………I love the fruit that is produced.
The gates of Hell shall not prevail against us!
