Presentation will review stats on pornography’s impact on the US church (creating the monster). Next, we will learn why the church must lead the way (rallying the village). Then, we will talk about practical ways the church can get started (picking up the pitchforks to fight the monster).
My presentation uses concepts from old black and white monster movies to inspire leaders to learn how to start a movement to fight porn in the church. We will learn how to define the monster; rally the village to fight the monster with compelling and real-world examples on how it will destroy them, their families, and their village; and finally, we will equip them with weapons to fight the monster (think “pick up your pitchforks and fight back”).
