Untouchables: Pornography (message resources)

Posted in better disciples at 6:13 PM by alexlozada

Ben Cachiaras started a new Sunday message series Untouchables = controversial topics we don’t want to touch. Today’s message was on “Pornography” – highlighting both the damage sexual impurity causes AND the grace of God that forgives sins like sexual impurity. You can download audio from MCC’s website and/or a draft of the small group study guide, plus my notes from the message.

Not for the faint of heart (or those who are not already struggling w/ pornography or who know someone who is) – the most blunt + helpful ministry I’ve encountered for sexual purity is xxxchurch.com. Another good resource, especially for men’s small groups looking for a book / study guide (co-written by one of the xxxchurch guys) is Deadly Vipers. On recommendation from our exec pastor Rob Kasten’s, MCC’s men’s pastoral staff read through Deadly Vipers – hard-hitting, phrased w/ contemporary language (which might be off-putting to some) BUT well worth it!

Here’s the Casting Crown’s music video of the special music that opened the service.
