Pure Eyes (): A Man's Guide to Sexual Integrity (XXXChurch.com Resource)
Pure Eyes (): A Man's Guide to Sexual Integrity (XXXChurch.com Resource)
Price: $3.03

4.0 out of 5 stars A practical guide for men, May 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The authors have written a practical guide to help porn addicts achieve sobriety. The highlight of the book for me was understanding the effects that porn addiction has on the brain. The authors present scientific research and also interview experts who discuss the re-wiring of the circuitry of the brain from porn use. The brain can operate on a system of rewards, so many engage in porn because it's perceived as a reward after having a difficult experience or negative emotions. They also assert that porn use is similar to that of substance abuse, like alcohol or drugs, so you must treat the addiction as such. The real question they pose is to ask yourself why do you engage in porn. That's the first part of the journey to sobriety. The second part is accountability and being in a support group, which they offer the resources and support of XXXchurch. om. The third part is recognizing and eliminating physical and non-physical triggers that cause you to turn to porn. My assessment is if one were to follow this guide to sexual integrity, freedom from sexual sin is possible, but men will always struggle with the spiritual issue of lust. However, we don't need to give in to temptation. The Holy Spirit gives us the power and strength to overcome addiction! I have been sober from porn addiction for many years and I pray for those who want to break free.


A Quest for More: Living for Something Bigger than You
A Quest for More: Living for Something Bigger than You
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A challenging book for practical living, April 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Paul David Tripp has written a challenging book that calls for Christians to live above and beyond their mundane, day-by-day activities that focus on self. He argues that we were made by God to live for something more than just our mere existence, but sin "shrinks our lives down to the size of our lives." The challenge is to follow the call of Christ: to die to ourselves, carry our crosses, and follow Him. This book really illuminated the condition of the human heart and causes intense reflection in your own personal life by asking penetrating questions. I highly recommend this book for those who desire to live for something bigger than themselves, those who are weary of living a status quo life, and those who need practical application of how to live out a life of kingdom living.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best protective case on the market, May 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you want a great case, you will need to spend a little more money compared to other cases. This case is worth the investment. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 fits perfectly in the hard shell casing, which has a build-in screen protector to preserve your Kindle. A silicon shell fits around the hard plastic shell for smooth texture in your hands and covers the ports (headphone jack, charging port) when their not in use. In addition, this shell casing fits snugly into a hard plastic stand that allows your Kindle to be positioned perfectly for typing at a 30° angle or for viewing movies at a 90° angle. The stand allows the Kindle to be positioned in either a portrait or landscape format. The case and stand allows anyone to be versatile in their uses of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. I highly recommend this case for your device!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMC's best television show, April 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the living find themselves in an epic battle to survive against a zombie apocalypse. The show is based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman, although the producers and script writer Kirkman himself diverge from the graphic novels on occasions. For the few living, the best strategy is sticking together. Rick's group forms in this first season and immediately the viewer begins to become attached to the characters. The acting is excellent, the gore scenes are executed realistically, and the story is brilliant as we follow these main characters with their problem of survival and their interpersonal problems within the group. I gladly recommend this entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Wi-Fi Extender, January 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Here are the benefits of "Amped Wireless Dual Band Range Extender and Repeater": it has extreme range from building to building, it has dual band option of 2.4 GHz (10,000 sq. ft. coverage) or 5.0 GHz (coverage will be less with per sq. ft. about 5,000 sq. ft.); best suitable for a very large home or offices; it's universal, so it works with all brands of single or dual band routers and service provider gateways; it has 5 gigabit ports on the back of device for wired connections like other computers, tv's, game consoles, Blu-ray players, printers, etc.; it also has a USB port to share files with local users; it can stand or be mounted on a wall; and the device can be set-up, installed, and configured easily by following the instuctions included.
Some additional personal information that may be helpful to aid you in a decision to purchase: I use the Wi-Fi extender in a very large church building that I pastor at, almost 10,000 sq. ft. of space. The extender repeats the signal from my parsonage, which is 60 feet from the church and extends the signal throughout the entire church building! It's incredibly powerful! My church office is approximately 150 feet from the extender and the signal has to travel through walls to reach my office, yet I get 4 out of 5 bars of signal strength. I tested the download speeds being as far away from the extender as possible and was able to download at almost 200 megabits per sec. Upload speed was about 50 megabits per sec. For an extender to cover that kind of distance and through walls and ceilings, have that strong of a signal strength, and download at those speeds from a very far distance is very impressive to me! I highly recommend you to purchase this product to fulfill your connectivity needs! It works great!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great app for documents!, December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Reader (App)
Adobe Reader is needed to open .pdf. files as Microsoft Office Word is needed to open .doc files. One can view, pint, or collaborate with their .pdf files. The program is user-friendly and easy to familiarize yourself with the command icons. The best thing about Adobe Reader is that it's offered free of charge, as opposed to Microsoft Word where you have to buy Microsoft Office. Adobe Reader is also a great alternative to sending documents. In other words, when I send documents to a recipient, I send both a .doc file and a .pdf file. If the recipient does not have Microsoft Word, they can view the file as a .pdf instead. This app will fulfill all of your document needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great films in a box set!, November 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These three films are one of the best comic book superhero movies ever made! The box set includes the 3 films on blu-ray, 2 bonus discs (worth hours of extras), and a booklet for a price that is unbeatable! The director, Christopher Nolan, has reinvented the caped crusader, with actors/actresses that give stellar performances. These movies will inspire you to fight the evil in the world logically in order to preserve the love for a community of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource, November 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This particular ethernet cable has the distinct feature of being directly buried underground, beause it's waterproof. I use the cable to connect to a modem and runs to a router in another building. The cable effectively carries the DSL signal from modem to router at high speed, with a very strong signal. It works great!

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy, but great read!, September 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Didache (Kindle Edition)
"The Didache" (Gk. "teaching") is a short read, not intended to be comprehensive in nature, but expounds on some specific Christian themes and elements of the faith. Those themes range from Christian piety to Church organization. Most scholars date the work to 1st or 2nd century, so it's one of the earliest documents we have about the Christian faith, besides the gospels in the NT canon. Some early Church Fathers argued for its acceptance into the NT canon, but was rejected by most to be non-canonical, except for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. There is some exact verbiage of Jesus, but at other times, the phrases sound like they are "secret sayings" of Jesus and the Apostles. However, the thoughts contained in "The Didache" are edifying, enriching, and inspirational. I recommend this read to any Christian believer desiring to learn the basic elements of the Christian faith!
