Pastor Dr. James Wolfe shares his story of redemption from drug dealer to Pastor, the power of spiritual fasting, and the sexual struggle that is every man’s battle.
Every Man’s Battle
Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker published a book by the title Every Man’s Battle in 2000. The book openly discusses the struggle of pornography among men, its impact on sex drive, and the toll it takes on marriages. Arterburn and Stoeker also covered practical tips on how to overcome this struggle.
Every Man’s Battle released an update in 2020 marking its 20th anniversary in helping men overcome sexual sin when it comes to porn addiction. This is just one of the topics discussed in this episode with Dr. James Wolfe from Carpenter’s House of Worship.
