The true story of a preacher’s secret double-life of sexual addiction and shame.
The true story of a preacher’s secret double-life of sexual addiction and shame. An addiction is a compulsive or physical dependence upon a substance or person or behavior that provides a temporary sense of well-being. The gratification derived from indulging in an addiction never lasts long, but the destructive effects, the damage to relationships, the feelings of shame and failure that addiction brings are long-lasting and far reaching. Sexual addiction is a much deeper issue of the soul lacking normal intimacy with God. Find out what helped Gabe overcome such addiction with the help of his mentor Dr. Brad Weniger.
I have been a pastor, missionary, Christian educator, and conference speaker. However, on July 2, 2011, my wife and one of my deacons confronted me about my internet pornography activity. You see, for twenty-seven years I lived a double life! I have written Double Soul to share my story and call the church to accept the challenger to minister the spirit of Jude 22.
