Setting Our Children Free

I mentioned earlier that I took the opportunity to teach my children something educational regards to the Pastor who admitted he is a porn addict.

This is not my first time talking to them about the realities of sins and struggles a boy or man will face all the days of his life... sexual temptations. That is how they have been made... easily stimulated with their eyes. I can either pretend they are goody-two-shoes (which they are not!) or help them to face their struggles and be there to guide them through it. Even though I talk with casualness in my tone, its actually a very serious subject.

In this age of technology, where pornography is a click away... Yes, I have an internet filter. But what if I am no longer around to guard my children. Will they be able to resist the temptations? I hope so.

My older boy who is turning 12 years old this Oct said that he does have "those thoughts". He handles it the way I have taught him. He has victories in his thought life.

My younger boy will be turning 7 years old this Nov said that he does have "those thoughts" and dreams. He admits that he struggles, with a look tinged with guilt. I almost fell from my chair but I was so calm and cool that even my freezer will be proud.

I know that in Bangkok, there are many pornographic printed materials. Its free and readily available at shopping complexes and hotels. Its very small and easily hidden in pockets. I know he has taken some without my knowledge and this curious little boy has exposed himself to pornographic materials out of curiosity.

My goodness, what do I do?

Pornographic images stays in the mind - almost forever...

I helped him the way I knew best. Prayer. Its a very different type of prayer... prayer of deliverance. A type of prayer I have used for my children, myself and even friends and family members.

I also know that the bible says ...

Ephesians 6:12:

12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places

After the prayer of deliverance, he said that he felt much better and that all those pictures in his mind was all gone!  Praise the Lord!

You can take authority over demonic powers over your children's lives too, today.

BTW, if you want to know how to do it, drop me a note and I will teach you how.

its really nice to be so open with your children. If we act like bad things never happen they will never know how to handle them. my sons father asked me for forgiveness about 12 years ago and I did. He is remarried and has a new baby boy and is preaching at his church now.

Frankly, I'm interested to know more about this. My kids might be too young for this now, but I'm still thinking how to explain to them about transvestites as we have one staying besides our house. Can we exchange emails?
