The Power of Purity Podcast, Episode 149 - Full Disclosure with Greg from Washington - Part 4

POP 149.jpg

In the previous 3 episodes of the podcast - (episodes 146-148) - Tony interviewed Greg from Washington.

After these 3 episodes were already edited and in the process of being published... Greg contacted Tony with a concern.

He felt that he had not been clear enough with certain details of his story during the original interview... and he was concerned about this because he did not want to be dishonest... or duplicitous... in any way... and he did not want to misrepresent the truth about himself... or his walk of purity.

Greg's concern was this...

Although he did make a vow to God of sexual purity... and complete sexual abstinence... and although Greg did honor that vow for 3 entire years... he eventually came to the place before God and his own conscience... where he began allowing himself to masturbate again... on occasion… within the parameters of certain mental and spiritual limitations.

Greg wanted to bring absolute clarity to this part of his story... because he did not want to be dishonest in any way... nor cause a stumbling block to any other person by misrepresenting himself through his original interview.

For these reasons Tony decided to honor Greg's good conscience... and to present this additional aspect of Greg's story in the pursuit of absolute honesty and transparency.

Is it ever... under any circumstances... acceptable or appropriate for a Christian man to masturbate?

If a Christian man does masturbate... does that mean that he is dishonoring God with the expression of his sexual gift?

Tony speaks to these important questions... and others like them... in this spontaneous addendum to Greg's story.

The Power of Purity Podcast, Episode 148 - Can A Single Man Honor God With The Expression of His Sexual Gift with Greg from Washington - Part 3

POP 148.jpg

This interview is with Greg from Washington.

Greg was married for 9 years when his wife discovered that he was having an affair.

During the dark days that followed... Greg's wife discovered The Power of Purity and Tony Ingrassia online... and gave the information to her husband.

Greg ordered and watched all 30 sessions of The Power of Purity Video Conference... and following that he contacted Tony to come to St. Louis for a week of intensive counseling.  

On the verge of loosing his marriage and his family... Greg was more broken and motivated than he had ever been to finally deal with the root issues of his sexual struggle... and was willing to do whatever it would take in order to become a healthier man.  

Although Greg had been a Christian for many years... and was very actively involved in church and serving the Lord... he struggled in secrecy to honor God with the expression of his sexual gift.

Although Greg was hopeful that his marriage and family could be saved... the difficult situation eventually led to a divorce... and the loss of his family.

This unexpected season of his life came with new challenges... because Greg was more committed to sexual purity than he had ever been before... and this led to the very difficult question...

Is it really possible for a single / divorced man to honor God with the expression of his sexual gift?

At the time of this interview Greg has been divorced for 4 years... and he shares with us the challenges... lessons... and joys... he's learned along the way on his new journey as he seeks to be the man of purity that God has called him to be.

Be blessed as you listen to Greg's story!

POP 141.jpg

William Graham Tullian Tchividjian... as Billy Graham's grandson... was born into a family of "Christian Royalty".  But despite this fact... he dropped out of high school during a period of rebellion... and sank deeply into South Florida's "pleasure-saturated culture".  At the age of 21 he came to personal faith in Jesus and began to truly serve God for the first time in his life.

After earning an M.Div. degree at Reformed Theological Seminary... he was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in American (PCA)... founded his own successful and growing church near Ft. Lauderdale Florida (New City Presbyterian Church) and eventually merged with what had been one of the largest and most respected churches in America - Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. 

At this time Tullian became a "celebrity pastor"... a sought after public speaker... and the author of numerous popular books including...

  • One Way Love

  • It Is Finished

  • Jesus + Nothing = Everything

  • Surprised By Grace

  • The Kingdom of God

  • Glorious Ruin – How Suffering Sets You Free

Then in 2015.. after serving as the Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge for seven years (2009 - 2015)... Tullian's life came crashing down after allegations emerged of an extramarital affair... the first of more than one to which he would admit.

As a result of these events... Tullian lost his wife... his marriage... his family... his church... his ministry... his job... his reputation... and in the darkest of days he despaired of life itself and literally contemplated suicide.

In a mystery... it was during these darkest and hardest days of his life that Tullian came to understand the graceand forgivenessof God in a deeper way than he had ever known before.

Be blessed and encouraged as you hear this amazing story... and realize that the same mercy that's rescuing this deeply broken man is also available to you and me!

As she's listened to the present series of episodes...

12 Things Every Wife Should Know About Her Husband When It Comes To Sex...

Elaine said the following:

"To be perfectly honest, my stomach is in knots and I'm feeling quite triggered after your frank discussion."

In her letter Elaine shares her thoughts... feelings... and questions with Tony:

What does a woman do if she's had sex with her husband an average of 4 times a week, and he still goes out and cheats on her?

What does a woman do when she discovers her husband's "holy facade" is disingenuous because he's been living a lie for many years?

What does a woman do when her husband turns her down for sex because he says the foreplay she needs to get ready "isn't worth the effort to him"?

What does a woman do when her husband is seeking to perpetrate his sexual addiction upon her, often pressuring her for sex several times a day? 

What does a woman do when her husband is using sex in the attempt to fill the hole in his heart that only God can fill?

Elaine asks these... and other tough and heartfelt questions... 

and Tony does his best to speak to these different issues.

Welcome to... Elaine's Letter.
