I was a part of a church at one time where we had a "men's meeting" to discuss important issues we as men face. Basically it was a session to talk about things such as masturbation and pornography. I learned that the leaders in my church were at least ocassionally engaging in one or the other or both. By this time I had already repented of my sin and knew what the true way out of this sin was. The problem was here I think that most of them were not interested in getting out of this sin. They were content with the ocassional fall here and there and of "repenting" thereafter. While this is better than the man who has worked this sin into his theology, it is still no excuse for it.
Why are there
I remember a man that went to seminary but unfortunately had not found a wife by the time he got out. He told me that no church wanted anything to do with a man who was not married. This is sad. But it also helps you to see why there is a little bit of a trick to the whole pornography problem amongst pastors. Those who struggle the most are single people and they are in the pews. Those who struggle, but also have an "outlet" for their lust kind of struggle quietly. Eventually their marriages break up or they are caught with the secretary, but the problem is the same. 1 John 1:8 says that "if we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us." The problem with the pastors is that if it came out what they were doing then they would loose their credibility. They would loose all the things they have worked so hard for.
Those pastors who don't have any answers yet have a secret struggle with their sin need to repent. They need to realize that they may not even have a relationship with God at all. They need to get down on their knees and confess their sin to God and to their wives and congregations. Then they need to seek biblical help to fix the areas of pride and selfishness that have caused this problem in the beginning. Then we will see restoration to the American church.
