Mike Cleveland speaks on overcoming pornography addiction

Setting Captives Free Founder Mike Cleveland

Matthew 5:30  And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Matthew 18:8  If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.

Sin is tough to get rid of.  It is like cancer, if you don’t clean it all out it will spread.  Pornography addiction is tough to kick.  The best thing we can do is to amputate our source of sin.  I don’t mean mutilating yourself.  I mean you need to cancel your cable or internet, throw out your X rated movies and magazines and avoid those places you know will temp you back into pornography.

Pastor Mike Cleveland gave a great sermon entitled “Radical Freedom”.   Mike is the founder of setting captives free – a website that has free bible studes for all sorts of addictions.  You can watch the video of his sermon by clicking here and pushing the Video button on the page:  Pastor Mike Cleveland – “Radical Freedom”

  1. We have great respect for your we postings and pray that you continue to lift up Christ! Meanwhile, you posted this very good article my Mike Cleveland who used to head up a wonderful ministry called, “Setting Captives Free” – a ministry that met head-on the addiction to sins of pornography and other sexual immorality that is rampant in our culture. The article is still on your web site.
    Sadly, Setting Captives Free closed its web site last October. However, I’m writing you, today, to let you know that there is still hope for men and women in bondage to sexual sin. A wonderful ministry called Libres en Cristo, which teaches from the scriptures with a Christ centered focus has just opened and English Website, http://www.freeinchrist.org that has the same powerful online bible course translated into English.
    I hope that you will check this out, and if you desire, mention it in your publications or on your web site.
    In His Love
    Neill Morris – servant of the King
    A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said,
    “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
    Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man.
    “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” (Matt 8: 2-3)

    And He said that to me.

  2. Cold Turkey – In honor of Thanksgiving! The Lord said it in another way: I wish that you were either hot or cold and not lukewarm. We all need to decide which side of the fence we are on when it comes to pornography – are we users or former users.
