A Kentucky ministry is out to prove those who watch too much pornography, can gain control of their addictions. Still, the head counselor of Pure Life Ministries said when temptation is so readily available, everyday can become a new test of faith.
At the Pure Life Ministries in rural Central Kentucky, porn addicts spend six months on a desperate path to salvation. If you are given over to lust, masturbation, or fantasies you are on dangerous ground.
Privacy here is non-existent. New arrivals sleep 16 to a room. There’s limited free time, but plenty of time for prayer.
There’s no television. There are no computers. Is that by design?
“Yes it is. We try to avoid any outside temptation these men might have to deal with through T.V. or magazines, newspapers. There are no books here either, except for the Bible and study materials with scriptural lessons on guilt, anger, depression and selfishness,” said Jeff Colon, head counselor at Pure Life Ministries.
Colon said the real test is leaving this structured environment and going home.
“We do live in a sexualized culture and it is difficult for these men when they leave here,” Colon said.
