The purpose of this page is to give you a picture of the church under the hood. The stories here often have tragic endings; God is exposing the sins of His church and lives are being destroyed daily. This should spark a sense of urgency in every church to talk openly about sexual topics and equip their people in these issues, and put everyone on their knees in prayer crying out to God for mercy and healing. The church is supposed to be a house of prayer. We need to equip His people to be warriors and overcomers.
