DID YOU KNOW THAT AN ESTIMATED 50% OF PASTORS VIEW INTERNET PORNOGRAPHY ON A REGULAR BASIS? Vern Tompke has been a pastor for 29 years... and throughout his ministry he has struggled with using pornography.  During this time Vern realized just how hard it is for a pastor to find help with this struggle. * Who can a pastor turn to for help? * Who can a pastor be honest with? * Who can a pastor trust? * What if people find out about his struggle? * Will he be fired from his job? * How will be continue to provide for his family if he looses his job? These are no doubt questions that Vern struggled with. Although Vern led a weekly men's recovery group around this issue for 15 years... he didn't begin to walk in true freedom until 3 years ago. What helped Vern "turn the corner" was getting mentored by another godly man... investing time and finances in his own therapeutic process... and listening on a regular basis to great podcasts... including The Power of Purity Podcast. Recently Vern started his own podcast... Pastors On Porn... which is intended to be a safe place for struggling pastors to find anonymous help for their struggle. In this episode Tony does something very different... because Tony is normally the INTERVIEWER... but on this episode Tony is actually the INTERVIEWEE. Vern actually hosted Tony as a guest on the Pastors On Porn Podcast... and it's that episode that's being presented today on the Power of Purity Podcast. https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/pastors-on-porn/id1435403633
