  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

A 1996 Promise Keepers survey at one of their stadium events revealed that over 50% of the men in attendance were involved with pornography within one week of attending the event. 51% of pastors say cyber-porn is a possible temptation and 37% say it is a current struggle.

Software Tools for the Home

Reviews the major Internet filtering and monitoring software programs available.

We strongly recommend the use of internet filters or monitoring software on all computers, especially those used by children. Internet filters are computer programs that make undesirable content unavailable to the computer user. Monitoring software simply reports on Internet usage to someone you have chosen to receive the detailed report of the computer’s usage. Use this chart to determine what solution is best for your family.
