Overcoming Adult Material Addiction

T

he struggle with adult material addiction is a creeping epidemic in our society today. Popular culture and a liberal society encourages the use of adult material to satisfy one’s sexual needs. It is a silent struggle many face – even in the church. Come and join us and discover the roots of this issue, the effects on the brain and society, and how to treat this stubborn addiction.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Adult material addiction affects 60 -70% of men, 50 – 58% of pastors, 20 – 30 % of women in Evangelical Churches in the USA. Is Malaysia affected? No statistics are available. However Malaysia has been touted to have one of the highest percentage of population surfing the internet. Many of them would be tempted to visit adult material websites. If we say conservatively that the percentage of Malaysians affected by adult material addiction is half that of the US, then roughly 35% of Christian men, 30% of pastors and 15% of women are adult material addicts. Would Malaysian Christian Leaders consider the situation critical and take immediate measures to confront this issue before it chaotically explode in our society?
