anonymous commented on How to Confess the Sin of Pornography to Your Wife (And How Not To), Part 1:

Oct 30

Thank you so much. After talking with 3 Pastors and trying to overcome this I was still struggling with my husbands lack of the above described actions. I felt like I immeditaly starting comparing myself to the women in the porn and tried to satisfy him and then felt more robbed of my feeling because I was being treated like I had to make up for something while I was hurting. This article explains why and Pastors need to know how to deal with this it cannot be just minimized away.

Also, can a Pastor talk to someone’s wife. I think the mandate is for the Pastor to speak to the husband and ask permission to speak to them together. If she is young living under her fathers roof (Num. 30:1-16) he should speak to the father. A man taking a woman aside to speak about a private matter is where many lines get crossed. If she was a divorced woman or widow (as Numbers 30:8-9 speaks about) a Pastor can speak to them about private matter but he should give no place for the devil and not give an appearance of evil (privately and secluded). It would be best if he has a witness with him to protect his integrity 1 Tim 5 (accusation of an Elder).

This is very well done. But I would focus on having a better biblical answer of Percilla and Aquila. First, they were not there counceling. But they were their as equals enjoying a conversation. Thus no authority. This is important to note. Because could a man say something about the bible to another woman (like a bible study). Sure, they can talk. This meeting together was one of encouragement and not “Christian Counseling” as we might currently call it.
