Too many pastors struggle secretly with porn addiction. Research says 57% of pastors have struggled with porn and Asian pastors and Asian American ones are no exception. This ugly struggle is true for many men, and some women, regardless of ethnic background, whether Korean American, Chinese American, Japanese American, Indian American, and the many other ethnicities and nationalities in the world, Asians and non-Asians alike.
While it’s possible for someone to have a double life, doing Bible teaching or Christian ministry in public, and secretly looking at porn in private, there is recovery and freedom to get out of that painful & conflicted place. In other words, it doesn’t have to be career suicide (or personal suicide).
