Sam Black on The Red Letter Disciple Podcast

040: Sam Black on What Age Parents Should Talk to Their Kids about Pornography, The Reason Churches Don’t Talk about It, and How To Fight Against Pornography

Sam Black has spent decades helping people find freedom from pornography. From early exposure to repetition through adolescence and finally using pornography as escapism, Sam believes that healing from any stage of pornography is possible. He offers the church tools to lead their people to freedom.

 

Lead yourself (and your church) to find freedom in forgiveness.  

We talk about the power of freedom in today’s episode with Sam Black. And we’d now love for you to go on the journey to not only forgive others, but to receive God’s forgiveness for your life. Before we can truly bring reconciliation to others in the world, we need to be reconciled to God. Thankfully, He doesn’t withhold His grace of forgiveness from any of us. It’s time to receive the freedom that comes with the forgiveness of God because a forgiven person becomes a forgiving person!

We’d love to introduce you to the 40-Day Forgiving Challenge.

Forgiving Challenge takes you on a life-changing journey to experience the gift of God’s grace so that you can share it with others. It also helps you identify and walk through the five phases leading to freedom.
