He also explains his strategies for freedom and highlights how his wife’s remarkable forgiveness and NCS brotherhood were key components in the victory.
Jay Stringer brings a refreshing, revelatory and even revolutionary new approach to dealing with unwanted sexual behavior. He reveals how the only lasting path out of unwanted sexual behavior is a path that involves (1) “listening to our lust” to understand our past (the roots of unwanted sexual behavior), (2) running TO something more beautiful rather than running FROM our unwanted behavior, and (3) doing it all in a supportive community.
Stringer’s research suggests that the nature of our fantasies and unwanted sexual behavior (including things like the search terms used when looking for pornography) are revelatory of their “why”–whether it stems from our past lives, childhood issues and experiences, or situations we are now facing.
Stringer explains that traditional approaches to unwanted sexual behavior (lust management) lack power because they focus on sin management and ignore where we came from (how our past holds keys to sexual brokenness and our sexual brokenness holds keys to our past) and where we are going (identifying a beautiful purpose for our lives). He offers a path forward to healing by pointing us back to the stories that shape our thought lives, sexual fantasies and unwanted sexual behaviors.
