‘Shamed’ The Movie

You know someone currently being affected by porn or sex addiction.  Maybe the man who sat next to you in church last week.  Maybe the woman leading your bible study.  Maybe the middle schooler who withdraws from youth group, or even the most involved student who makes straight-A’s, quarterbacks the football team, and just got back from that mission trip to Africa.  Perhaps your mirror knows well the face of hidden sin.

But, because of the guilt and the stigma still surrounding the issue, this debilitating addiction goes unconfessed and unhealed in the church which can be a painfully embarrassing place to confess sexual sin.  Ironic, because most of us struggle with it.

Shamed is a Christian film addressing the crippling shame surrounding pornography and sex addictions – helping us to “SPEAK openly, LISTEN compassionately, and HEAL completely.”

People are falling headlong into this addiction by the thousands.  Sin’s appetite is insatiable, and it is at all of our doorsteps – it waits for us on every billboard, every sitcom, every cell phone.  Our friends at Shamed The Movie reinforce how candor about sexual secrets lets the light of truth and grace into our own hearts and then helps us become that light of compassion and challenging accountability to others.

The film is currently in the making and has the potential to invite many into freedom and revolutionize our thinking as the body of Christ.  Watch the footage of everyday people sharing their stories of human shame and God’s redemption, and learn why the local church needs to be the place where the problem of pornography is addressed and liberty is found.

Documentary: Somebody’s Daughter

Our friends at Music for the Soul have created a number of great products, all of which offer hope and encouragement to those walking through the ups and downs of life.  Somebody’s Daughter is a piece we highly recommend.

Pornography addiction is rampant, growing, and affecting lives in our churches and schools right now.  Somebody’s Daughter is a DVD/CD set that includes music videos, vignettes, nine original songs, poetry, scripture readings, and a documentary featuring individuals, including a married couple, sharing their struggles with pornography in an honest and authentic manner that provides hope and encouragement.
