    Hi Kathy,

    I think, like many men, he needs more trusted accounability for his casual porn use, which could effect his Job. He doesn’t see it as that important and needs to link up with a buddy (who doesn’t sin this way, who may have overcome it) who can hold him accountable and that would check on him and ask, how is the porn viewing going? You still doing it? Any slip ups? If he could find a friend like that, he would be off to a good start.

    He is doing good with being honest and transparent here, so thats a great thing as well. If he can make the transition to have someone he can talk to about accounability in his personal life, that would be good.

    He has lots on his plate with family, kids, wife, baby, work, personal issues, but he is doing the best he can and seems helpful and easy going enough.

    If he can develope a healthy reliance on God more, he would move in the right direction. (I struggle here)

    the bumpersticker in his head that says “God is my Co-Pilot” needs to say “God is my Pilot”

    Articles on Self Reliance, Trusting God, and, Resting in God would helpful. Maybe just try the search bar on the website here. Im sure a lot will pop up. If I think of one specfically, I’ll let you know…

    He seems like a guy you can draw out with subtle light questions. Furthermore, he seems like he could benefit from some encouragement. He seems to be wanting to share more and work through things. I think with supportive and genuine questions about him would be helpful for him to think through these things. I think he is just going to porn because he doesn’t know what else to do with the stress of life. If he can reorient to less stress with the family with Gods help. He may tighten the bond with them. Just my two cents.

    You are doing great. He has good care with you.

    Hello Teresa, Welcome!

    Thanks for writing in with your concern. You may be familiar with this concept all ready, but, sounds like you may be what the Bible calls, “Unequally Yoked” With this man who you say has authoritative like behaviors with you. Deuteronomy 22:10. You shall not plow an Ox with Donkey. I know its an old illustration, but, humor me a bit here. To have the animals work together the farmer would use a Yolk. A harness that links them side by side for work. I know its an old saying that may have had real life applications back then. Like, maybe the Ox is too slow, and The Donkey is too fast and it may mess up the field for planting crops which they needed to survive. So doing this wouldn’t be wise at all because the farmer would want to insure his future for that season. So he would put an Ox with and Ox. Or a Donkey with a Donkey. Which is my understanding.

    Further down the line in the New Testament Jesus tell us to yoke with Him building off that idea. Matthew 11:28-30. Which is good news. Its Easy and Light. Maybe meditate on that scripture.
    I think if you don’t feel real comfortable with these topics with him. That maybe a group you do trust, like other women in the Church perhaps, or even just some one you trust more may serve you better.

    I think we can be unequally yoked with others sometimes. Believers in Christ, or not. I chose to move out my home from my biological family in with a friend and his father when I was 17. This was due to the fact that my biological home kind of just deteriorated on me due to dysfunction. I was hopeless. I made the choice to move in. They were non believers in Christ. You can say I yoked up with that and it caused a lot of issue about Christ in my life. Praise God! He was there waiting for me later down the line!

    I would like to add a comment. Not to take it per say. Because I would like anyone’s additional input, especially since I’m new here.

    Hi Kathy,

    Don’t be too discouraged with the news. We all have giftings in different areas. I may want to be something or other, but, if God has different plans or direction, I’m ok with that. If it’s God’s plan for me to do this course and become a better parent/disciple to my son. I am ok with that. If it’s to help others in different ways. That’s ok too.

    I’m Super glad your part of this community as well. it’s all ways great to see your name pop up. Keep going…

    Hi Marie,

    Glad you sent in a little note about you here. This is a great place to ask questions for what your talking about. Sometimes I have questions that I feel need a certain care to them. This is a good place for that to further think/problem solve issues. I’m Glad your here too!

    Thanks for the opportunity! These videos are eye opening and informative. You guys really break these topics down with precision. Not trying to flatter you guys too much, just being grateful. I was wondering just to tie up some these thoughts here. With the incredible nature of Christ as the ultimate sacrifice and His role as He who sits on the right hand of the Father, does his diachotomy allow a disciple to use both natures? Or instead of saying both natures, that maybe he just had a wide range in His personality, in that He suffered greatly, yet, achieved greatly too? That this understanding may help someone who has a narrow or misrepresented view of Christ? Not sure if this is a topic or not in Christian circles. But, I could see how it may be useful for people who may have confusing understandings of Christ. Which I think we all may struggle with to a certain degree or another.

    Hello Rick and Team,

    I too have received my feedback on my assignments. Thank you all very much for the time. It was very helpful as well and will continue to review them. I am in the process of working on block #2. I have updated my Microsoft Word so it should be easier sending files this time around.

    I plan on finishing up this week and staying on course for two weeks per block or so. It seems to work with my schedule right now. I plan on working on my case study, etc this week. My son had a little cold and he was generous enough to give it to dad. So we both have been recouping a bit last week.

    Hello, Team

    I just wanted to check on a few things. Should I continue on to block #2? I watch the video all ready and was gonna give it some more time today. Plus Rick sent me a e mail about my report that I didn’t see any text with it in the email? Just wondering if I need to see his report and where I can see his comments. And I am still waiting to d.l. dBm audio. I still plan on catching up on that.

    I did get a tablet which seems to be working well so far. I have two weeks to decide if i dont like it I can take it back, but not having one before, they are pretty handy and i am glad i got it. But waiting on a key board and case. I hope the files were able to work. I think I’ll be able to send off files here shortly with an updated word app program. Next block…
