Marshall Ballantine-Jones
As a senior minister what should you do if you have a porn addiction? What if it’s a staff member of senior lay leader? How do you preach to the congregation about these issues? We talk to Marshall Ballantine-Jones who is doing a PhD on this topic, and who says there’s a significant rate of porn consumption in the general community, the church and amongst church leaders. The younger the minister the more likely they will be to be a porn user! What are the implications for a heavy user of pornography? psychological, biological, neurological and sociological? How does porn use impact attitudes, behaviours? What impact does porn have on spiritual vitality. Is there a rank hypocrisy and inappropriate tolerance of sin or are we extending compassion? What’s the relationship of porn use and self control?   What practices should you introduce as a senior minister for yourself?   How should you lead your staff and lay leadership team?
