Some stats from the Barna Group and Covenant Eyes:
*68 percent of church-going men and over 50 percent of pastors view porn on a regular basis. Of young Christian adults 18-24 years old, 76 percent actively search for porn.
*59 percent of pastors said that married men seek their help for porn use.
*33 percent of women aged 25-and-under search for porn at least once per month.
*55 percent of married men and 25 percent of married women say they watch porn at least once a month.
*57 percent of pastors say porn addiction is the most damaging issue in their congregation. And 69 percent say porn has adversely impacted the church.
*Only 7 percent of pastors say their church has a program to help people struggling with pornography.
