A Much-Needed Wake Up CallReading Time: 2 minutes
Dear Mr. McDowell,
Well done Sir!!!!!!
I have been sounding the trumpet on this topic [pornography] for the past 10 years. We hit it hard in our confirmation program [at our church] (6th through 9th grade.).
However, in recent years, I have been convicted that our efforts are coming too late.
Despite the fact that all of our boys and at least half of our middle school girls report having seen porn, and I mean significantly disgusting porn, the parents are slow to appreciate the dangers.
Parents look at me as though I have lobsters coming out of my ears when I call this the decisive battle of the century. (I have been a pastor for 27 years. I am used to that.)
Your address has vindicated our efforts and we will pick up the challenge with greater clarity and zeal. I am sure that you will take heat for this address.
God bless you! I also appreciate that you lifted up the relationship you have with your wife! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
May God continue to nourish and sustain you!
