My Life is Again With God Nov 30, 1999
Where do I start with a book of this calibre!!!
I have been a christian for 10 years now and I have had a troublesome life, in terms of my brother dying and my mother having a breakdown... I can go on but I don't wanna bore you to death. Since these tragic events took place, I was not the same person. I basically fell head over hells into depression and I did not realize it until later on in my life.
This is when I began to dabble in porn to keep me satisfied and keep me from losing my mind and devling deeper into depression and suffering. "I am in no way justifying myself just telling you how it is".
As the months and years went by my descendance into porn and fetishes etc became obsessive and become the focal point of my day. No matter what I was doing or who I was talking to My mind and feelings were in a place of sexual fantasy.
I have accumulated ý6000 > $10,935.70 "I am from the UK" of expenses on internet sex, fetish, sites and also video's, CD's.
I became entralled with it and my life was about sex and my sexual fantasies. Not My family, GF, or Friends.
I was a very selfish and arragant so and so because all I wanted to do is get off and explore the world of sex and fantasies. My Lust and Urges were only satisfied momentarily.
I believed this was a good therapeutic ritual of destressing myself and saisifying my monsterous urges.
This went on and on.
I knew I was going to far into my obssessive behaviour when I started to explore the darker side of sex. I was getting into things of which I would neverever be excited by if I was in my sane mind. I tried to stop and even went without indulding in my fifth for a week or so, but the temptation and seductive nature of beautiful women and sex etc, always pulled me in and then spat me out. I was a slave to my desire. Visting Prostitues, Mistresses.
This is when I knew I had no control over my obsession, I was very much a fully fledged sex addict.
Now This is the point where I tried to stop and exit this world. However this was an impossible task for me as I have conditioned myself with this lifestyle to such a degree that all I ever knew on how to get comform, destress and feel a temporary kind of love is by doing these things. I became very lazy, didn't want a relationship at all. I just wanted what I wanted. I was battling with myself all the time trying to come out of this mess I have created.
I didn't realize how far away from god I was until I even thought about him. All I ever thought about was myself and needs.
This is when I began to pray and ask for forgiveness, to repent my sins. It worked. The pull of my sexual deseries became tolerable. However I fell foul of my sin again and again and again. As the Devil knew my weaknesses and my fantasies etc.
I was weak and lost in the world of darkness and emptiness. Until I made a super strong effort to break free and throw away myold lifestlye completely.
I became close with god once again and god gave me a sample of what kind of peace and love to expect If I obey him and live a life of righteousness and truth. The Feeling was amazaing, I felt soooooo at ease and at peace, It was truly amazing.
I let temptation get me again, I knew at this point I needed some serious help. However I was to paraniod going to my paster or counsellor. So I went looking for some selfhelp books, this is where I found this Monumental Book From This amazing Person Stsve G. God is Speaking Through him on so many levels.
This book has now changed my life completly, I know its hard to believe but it has. The book dissects the mind of a person dealing with sexual addiction, This is the ultimate book about dealing with sexual addiction or sin, I am now close with god and I know the tactics of the enemy. This book will identify why you are having this problem and also give you the tools and weapons on how to destroy thetemptation of lust. Also very importantly how to have a healthy sexual godly relationship with the one you love. I urge you to buy this book, this will completly change your life if you are dealing with this kind of problem. Lust is a hideous monster that can never be satisfied only leaving you empty with no self respect and with even more pain and sufferings. Thank you Lord God Almighty for this book and for Steve G.
Real, Powerful, & the best spiritually based book I've read Nov 30, 1999
Where do I begin? This book needs to be read by every single person that considers themselves Christian. Even non-Christians should read this book. Steve Gallagher does an exceptional job with unveiling the roots to problems associated with sexual sin. However, the roots can be applied to any habitual sin. What's great about this book is that he does not sugar coat this issue. He speaks the whole truth and you can feel the realness and sincerity in his words. He backs up everything with scripture, provides useful examples to illustrate his point, and includes quotes from spiritual scholars that drive points home.
This book is written by a man for men. He deals with all types of sexual behavior from pedofiles to Don Juans's (womanizers) and he just makes everything so clear. Never will I have a hardened heart towards men like this for I understand they are under attack.
I first heard about this book because my friend's dad does ministry at a prison where he uses this book to help minister to sex offenders. Every week, his class grows in size and the men have actually attested to ALL that Steve Gallagher has said about this type of sin. As a woman, I purchased this book to understand this type of sin so I can help my brothers in Christ, to help me release the strongholds I had in my mind with regard to men who commit these types of sin, and to forgive the pedofile in my past. I have a younger brother coming up and one day I will have a son. This book equips you with wisdom beyond what you would ever imagine. Steve Gallagher is a true soldier and makes it clear that we are at war. Spiritual war. What's even more fantastic about this book is that there is food that every person, every Christian can eat regardless of how they "think" they're living. Wait until you get to the chapter on Pride. He discusses "Know-It-All" Pride, "Unsubmissive" Pride and several others. He even has a chapter on how a man should love his wife. As a woman, it is good to see this so that my expectations are set at the right level. I could go on about eveything that made this book good but put it like this: I never bother to take the time to highlight books and make notes. It took a lot for me in some chapters to not just highlight the whole page yellow. This author does not waste any words. Everyone of them have relevance. My book has notes in the margin ad highlighted and underlined sections. I actually plan to develop some type of personal book report to help fortify what I've learned. I have purchased 3 extra copies so far to help brothers who I know can gain knowledge on how to free themselves from this bondage.
He helps to paint the picture of how the devil, in his calculating and strategic way, can corrupt the minds of God's children. The author of the book "The Art of War" said: "In order to win any battle, one must know the enemy's terrain". Steve Gallagher, this blessed and beautiful man of God, exposes the devil fully. If this book is not on your shelf, you will either remain in darkness or you will be walking in the light with sunglasses on.
