For Christian porn addicts — especially those on the road…

Man On The Road’s goal is to help you live a life of integrity and purity on the highway.

For the “I’m not sh*tting you files.” You just cannot make this stuff up.

The Web Evangelism Bulletin reports that Christian author and ministry founder Tom Burford, who runs the FiresofDarkness.com site as an outreach for pornography addicts and those who love them, has launched a new site targeting men who frequently travel away from home. ManOnTheRoad.org is an extension of the Man On The Road ministry, headquartered in Madison, Tennessee. The recently launched website has a particular emphasis on helping men avoiding the many temptations that arise from life on the road. Buford feels a deep concern for men who travel for a living, particularly since he has been a truck driver and was also a bus driver for years — first for Trailways, then for entertainers ranging from the rock band Twisted Sister to the legendary Johnny Cash. Through the Man On the Road ministry and website, Burford hopes to reach truck and bus drivers, pilots, salesmen, entertainers, and other men who travel for work. “We are trying to reach them where they are without being preachy,” he says. Burford, who wrote Riding a Dead Horse: Carousel to Hell, the story of God’s miraculous redemptive work in his life, and the novel Fires of Darkness, points out that he knows first-hand the dangers that lie in wait for men who fail to guard their hearts and minds on the road.

Are you up for reading the novel? Here’s some more info for you dirty bastards…


Riding a Dead Horse: Carousel to Hell
Is there life after pornography? Porn addicts on your church pew? Read the encouraging story of one man’s terrible journey to bottom of the pit that pornography addiction dug for him and of the miraculous touch from God that lifted him out of that pit in Riding a Dead Horse: Carousel to Hell by Tom Buford, founder of Fires of Darkness.

Have you had enough yet? I want to pass on some mind-blowing steps you may want to take if you really feel the need to eradicate the porn from your life, courtesy of Tom Burford, who must speak from experience…

  Delete electronic email addresses from your computer or online email to cut off your access to those you’ve been in unhealthy affairs etc.

  Remove those bumper stickers or license plate frames on your cars that remind you of a lifestyle you wish to leave behind.

  Replace the car-scent thing that hangs in your car with one without graphic pictures.

  Remove all the images from your locker at the gym.*

  If you have a fireplace, burn it all. (Use caution if you are burning VCR tapes, or anything toxic. You need to breathe fresh air. Make sure you have good ventilation and your FLUE IS OPEN to your fireplace so you don’t smoke up your home). Or shred it.

  Other items not listed here that supports your addiction.

  After the destruction party, throw it all into the trash!

  Delete any (inappropriate) websites you have created*.

  Burn, shred or destroy any written materials or written records of websites or sources where you have found porn.

  Go through your computer completely and destroy all images you have saved. Do not back up these files – erase them.

  Format all external disks where you store the images – floppy disks, zip disks, etc (not your hard drive) using “full format” feature.

  Use “Defrag” feature – see your computer manual or the help file on your computer.

  Go through your “favorites” or “bookmarks” (“favorites” is for Microsoft Internet Explorer, “bookmarks” is for Netscape Navigator) Delete all references to your addiction.

  Call your phone company and place a block on area code 900 phone calls.

  Stop renting the wrong types of movies.

  Change your routine where you eat meals or “entertainment”.

  Change your “entertainment” so you are not exposed to temptation. This can mean different things for different people.

  If your roommate has anything in this list and doesn’t want to get rid of them – you may have to move out!

  If your addiction is one with another person other than your wife or committed partner, restore yourself with your wife or partner and do whatever is necessary to end the wrong relationship. Get guidance from a pastor, priest, counselor or close friend who has a lot of integrity.

  For travelers, tell the front desk to unauthorize or disable the naughty cable channels, or ask them to remove the television from the room. – Don’t rent the bad or questionable movies.

  While traveling, If you go somewhere to use internet service – take a person with integrity with you.

  While traveling, make arrangements with someone at your home (or in one of the support groups listed in the links page) – to call them when you arrive at the hotel – let them know you’re not going to go to the wrong places. Be honest.

  Do not go through this alone!

  Go get filtered Internet!

…LASTLY, AND MOST IMPORTANT – Develop a spiritual hunger for God – the closer you draw to God, the less and less you will want porn.

I hope you all are wiping your eyes from crying. I just couldn’t stop laughing as I typed this up. I think that I’ve found the most ridiculous wingnuttery and then…well, these people come up with more.
