Ok a friend of mine posted this on their facebook. I'm really confused, because in the video the guy talks about praying to god to take away his porn/sex addiction, yet he doesn't.

This is a well-orchestrated, directed, planned video sermon.

"I'm a pastor, married, three kids, and I got my first hooker on the way to Christmas mass." "I screamed, begged Him to take it away from me." "Today, I'm glad he didn't take it from me."
"Living in the light. Not needing approval of others. That's freedom." "Jesus loves ME! And that's the only real relationship there is." This after the conversation with his wife, the one that touched him, moved him, changed him.

The rest of it, having worked in the field of addictions, I have often seen people switch from one chemical/behavioral addiction to the addiction of a cult.

Lovely violins.
My gut reaction is ICK.
I hope he's truly living an authentic life and I hope he is trying to please his wife.

Peace,
Karen

It does seem like that. Almost a way of playing it safe, and to keep from having to really change and own up for what they do.

I was thinking that. With the camera angles and the plain background.
