BIG ISSUES - Please Comment?

Dateline ran an episode regarding husbands who are addicted to 
video games which is causing about 48% of the divorce rate, even 
in the church.  50% is caused by P0-RN use.  The rest is financial 
or other issues.  Pastor Hagee's son preached on how many men 
in their church he has counseled because of the gaming addiction, 
leaving wives abandoned and children orphaned.  He suggested on 
TV that the wives should take a hammer to the PlayStations.  
When a husband protested, he said, "Brother you vowed to forsake 
all others for your wife and that includes Sony."  

I myself have been guilty of throwing laptops in the pool or smashing 
them on the ground after finding P0-RN videos on my husband's 
computer. I got the DVD's "Helping Her Heal" by Douglas Weiss 
from a sex addiction program and my husband refused to watch it.  
Even him watching it would bring healing as it validates me and 
brings understanding to my behavior because of the damage he
has done to my heart...

How do you address the issue of Christian husbands dabbling in 
the occult via these video games that involve divination, necromancy, 
spells, witchcraft, etc? I believe it opens the door to these demonic 
spirits. as I have had first hand experience in this matter and have 
seen manifestations of these demonic beings. This isn't something 
we want to bring into our homes or pass on to our kids. What about 
the excuse, "Oh it is only a game.  There is no sin in it."  Like going 
to a psychic or reading your horoscope.  Just fun and games, they 
say.  If it is so harmless or inocent, why are families being divorced 
over it?

How do you address people who recite a prayer confessing Jesus 
as being the son of God and the way, and never change?  Is this 
believing in their hearts, or are they giving mental accent to Jesus 
just as we would believe in "Abe Lincoln"?  I thought the baptism 
in water was to represent death to sin and self and living unto 
righteousness instead of a free hall pass to do as you please 
thinking you have purchased your fire insurance.  I was always 
taught that some receive the seed joyfully, but because of other 
things they fall away and never bear fruit. Are these the ones that 
get cut down because the axe is being laid to the root? Are these 
folks really saved even if they receive the word with joy and it never
produces any fruit and they remain wallowing in the mud and 
eating their own vomit like a dog?  Real sheep don't do that.  Real
Christianity is about death to self, picking up your cross and 
following Jesus in obedience... families and marriages are suffering 
because of this.  

Dateline should not be the one leading the way in exposing these 
things.  The church should be.  If people could find help in these 
issues because it is being addressed, more would come to church.   
My biggest hurt, suffering and pain are coming from these issues 
and I need healing from the pain it brings, and you won't get that 
in a church that doesn't know about it or address it strongly.  
Please help the women, children, marriages and families and wake 
these hypnotized men up.
