Pastors and Internet pornography:
Four in ten pastors online have visited a pornographic Web site. And more than one-third have done so in the past year. Those statistics from our Leadership survey have drawn startled response. From non-pastors: “So many!” From pastors: “Is that all?”
One out of every seven calls received by Focus on the Family’s care line for pastors is about Internet pornography. Another survey of pastors:
Since you’ve been in ministry, have you had sexual intercourse with someone other than your spouse? Yes: 12 percent; no: 88 percent… [Of those involved in inappropriate sexual activity:] Did the church find out? Yes: 4 percent; no: 96 percent. Hmmm.
