Christians Turn To Technology To Fight Church Members’ Online Porn Addiction

For any and every addiction, we are now convinced, there is a support group with a solution.

According to the Chicago Tribune, devout Christians are now turning to technology to assist with their online pornography addictions.

A Michigan-based technology company, Covenant Eyes, is capitalizing on the fears of devout Christians, offering software filters designed to detect computer or mobile device users accessing pornography.

Believe it or not, the company has about 300,000 current software users and averages $57 million annually in revenue.

After purchasing your $15.99 monthly subscription on Covenant Eyes site and installing their software, you are asked to create a list of accountability partners. These partners can be friends, family, church members, or even your pastor.

At that point, anytime pornography is accessed from your device, the software captures a screenshot, blurs it, and sends it to those you have selected to assist in your journey.

The goal is to help members overcome their addiction with the help of their peers.  A typical user keeps their subscription for about 37 months while others maintain it for a lifetime to ensure their sobriety.

  1. Unfortunately, Covenant Eyes and similar accountability programs do not help porn viewers learn how to deal with the urge to view and overcome it. Users of these programs can simply use alternative devices. A better solution is the book Power Over Pornography, which methodically walks through how to deal with the temptation. I highly recomment it.
