"The Heart is a Battlefield between Love and Lust" : Breaking Free from Porn

I sat down and listened to this 5-CD set at work today. And I was blown away. It's one of the most powerful CDs on Chastity that I've ever listened to. Pornography is one of the largest, most dangerous threats to authentic love in our culture today, and this set directly addresses the issue head-on.

It answers questions like "why does pornography become an addiction?" and what's wrong with looking at a swimsuit magazine?" His wife, Crystalina, also reads a few letters from women whose husbands are addicted to porn, showing how truly destructive porn can be in a marriage.

But most of all, Jason Evert does a fantastic job of showing that the real battle lies within the heart, and he shows how to overcome the challenge of re-directing our desires to the truth about love. "When the temptation comes to mind, don't shove it down; lift it up. Pray for that woman who is a victim of pornography. The devil wants to use these women to bring you down, and you’re using that temptation as an opportunity to lift you up." - Jason Evert
