In this episode of Vegan Jesus Followers podcast, we share how addiction manifests itself as the result of unresolved physical, emotional and spiritual conflicts in our life.
There was so much pain in my life after the loss of my ministry career and accompanying rejection I felt. Being told I wasn’t God’s man, that there was something wrong with me and there was something wrong with my spirit, being forced to resign. I needed to remove my personal items from my office as quickly as possible in order to remove my presence from the building, and I needed to keep quiet about this and not tell anyone else in the church.
I turned to internet porn as a way to self-medicate to distract me from the emotions and the pain I had been suppressing. After getting caught, that started my journey of recovery. Listen as we share our story and how we dealt with this.
