Further Discussion
 
• How am I (we) guarding myself (my family) from the ever present temptation of online pornography?
 
• How can I avoid inappropriate conversations that lead to deeper temptation?
 
• What spiritual disciplines do I need to increase in my life so that I can be better equipped to overcome sexual temptation?
 
• Have I allowed the truth of the gospel to penetrate my guilt of past sexual sin, or do I still live in personal condemnation of something I have been forgiven for?
