Pastors And Pornography
Nate Larkin was a pastor who had a terrible secret: he was fascinated with pornography. Larkin is, sadly, in good company. One out of every four pastors looks at pornography on a weekly basis, and 40 percent of those pastors keep it a secret, according XXX Church.com.
You can listen to Larkin’s story, which was the subject of a recent Covenant Eyes podcast, here.
His eventual exposure to his wife led him to get serious, and out of that seriousness was born the Samson Society.
In his interview, Larkin said a number of powerful and revealing things. The horrifying fact of the progression in his indulgence was indicated by the fact that the first time he ever visited a prostitute was while he was on his way to church to conduct a candlelight Christmas Eve service.
But he learned how to be honest and move toward healing. In creating the Samson Society he has been able to provide for all men hope which he says he never had through the years. And the core value of the Samson Society is the commitment all the men share; namely, to drop the pretense and get real.
How crucial that is indeed.
