NASHVILLE—Pornography addiction is the greatest moral crisis confronting the church because it "happens in darkness," says Heath Lambert, executive director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.
During the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission's leadership summit on human sexuality in Nashville last week, Lambert, a professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College, called pornography "the greatest moral crisis in the church today," above issues of divorce and homosexuality. He also commented that Christians can rail against homosexuality but then go to the computer and feed their addiction to porn.
The Christian Post caught up with Lambert after his remarks at the ERLC summit and asked him about the role he plays in fighting porn addiction in his congregation, and what it might be like for an entire generation to grow up sexually educated through porn. more >>

With the recent release of the Bible App 5 that has already been installed, beginning with the original application, on 136 million devices, it's clear that its maker, YouVersion, remains on track to engage more people with the Bible than ever before. The updated app lets people share Scripture with friends in an online community.
"For the last five and a half years the features we've had inside the app have been primarily to help someone individually connect with the Bible," Bobby Gruenewald, innovation pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma, told The Christian Post recently. "This new release, the Bible App 5, actually introduces a new set of features that allow you to form relationships with people that you know and trust, and then have conversation about Scripture and the activity that you are doing with the Bible with those people.
"It really moves it from being just an individual experience to giving people the opportunity to experience it with others. We think it is a really important step forward in engagement and understanding of Scripture," Gruenewald said. more >>
NASHVILLE—A panel discussing homosexuality at the Southern-Baptist affiliated Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission created a stir on social media Monday night, after pastor J.D. Greear compared resisting gay marriage in the church to resisting slavery in the South in the 1860s.
"Preaching against homosexuality in our day is about as popular as preaching against slavery and racism in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1861," said Greear at the ERLC summit. "And back then, I'm sure the politically correct people were like, 'You're just creating a lot of waves that are unnecessary, just preach the Gospel.'"
"Oh man. Southern Baptists comparing their fight against marriage equality to the abolition movement. So ironic," tweeted Christian writer Rachel Held Evans. more >>
