Even Good men face sexual temptation. What they need is a way to resist it.
Men who fall sexually have suffered the worst kind of identity theft. Since that’s the case, lasting victory rests on an understanding of their new and true identity in Christ, coupled with the insight needed to tap into the wisdom and power of God. This seminar provides a strategy that will help men think and live in accordance with their true identity. As that happens they’ll resist sexual temptation. And every temptation resisted will vitalize their walk with God, buoy their self-respect, strengthen their marriage, and provide an example for their children and friends to follow.
At the event men are encouraged to get into an eight-week follow-up study in which they use When Good Men are Tempted and the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Ultimately, long-term life change occurs in small groups. I’ve found that over 70% of the men attending an event, who aren’t currently in a group, sign up for one of the studies.
The idea is for a Mission Integrity event to create momentum which is then captured by the eight-week follow-up studies and maintained by those groups that continue on after the eight weeks.
An Unseen War Rages
An unseen war is raging for the hearts of men like never before. Cultural bullies are whispering dangerous messages. Temptation is a mouse click away, economic pressures weigh heavily, and the demands of work and family are a constant double bind. In the midst of this war men need a strategy for moral, sexual purity that works . . . one that will enable them to modern day might men of God.
