I DIDN'T KNOW . . .

  • He was my only brother.

  • Yet, I didn’t know ...

 

  • He taught me to play basketball.

  • Yet, I didn’t know …

 

  • He taught me how to become more like Jesus by going through lessons for new Christians.

  • Yet, I didn’t know …

 

  • I was the best man at his wedding.

  • Yet, I didn’t know …

 

  • He was the best man at my wedding.

  • Yet, I didn’t know …

 

  • He led the dedication at our church for our oldest child.

  • Yet I didn’t know …

 

  • He was my only brother, so I should have known, right?

Yet I didn’t know he was addicted to pornography. 

How is it possible to have a person so close to me, but I didn’t know that he has a secret?  He had a side he didn’t want anyone to know even though it was tearing him a part. How is it that your only brother can be living in such shame and yet the people who loved him the most and therefore could have helped him the most, didn’t know?

Looking, back, there were signs but I didn’t see at the time.  It is similar to watching a movie based on a mysterious murder and you don’t know who the killer is until the very end.  Yet, you watch the same movie again, you see all kinds of signs. 

But, I didn’t get to see the murder mystery a second time because my brother died.  Even in death, he hid it from me.  Up until the very end, I would have done absolutely anything to help him overcome this addiction, but his shame took his secret to the grave.

  • Please know if you are addicted to pornography, others are affected… 

  • Even if they don’t know. 

 

  • You have people who love you and want to help you…

In case YOU didn’t know
