Internet Safety

“Be careful little eyes what you see.”

That Sunday school song is part of the Casting Crowns song “Slow Fade,” which can be heard in FIREPROOF.

One of the challenging subplots in the movie is Caleb’s parasite, as The Love Dare calls it. Caleb takes drastic measures to rid himself of his parasite. It appears to have inspired at least one moviegoer who commented on the Blog:

“I just wanted to testify that God has broken my addiction to pornography because of a scene in the movie, FIREPROOF. After watching Kirk Cameron destroy his computer rather than face temptation, I knew that’s what I had to do. I destroyed my laptop and threw it in the trash. Since then, I’ve felt freedom like never before! I had been addicted for over 20 years. Praise God!!”

Knowing addictions aren’t always cured so quickly, InternetSafety.com is offering a 30-percent discount on their Safe Eyes blocking software. Just use fireproof as your coupon code. It could make a world of difference in your home:

“The movie impacted our family in a very unusual way. After seeing it, our 14-year-old son confessed to us in tears that he had been battling an internet pornography addiction for over a year. … The movie moved him to action, and he is working with us to prevent this from happening again. Thank the Lord for using this tool to bring conviction to his heart.”

FIREPROOF addressed the main issues that my husband and I have been going through. I think this movie really showed him how it makes a wife feel to have to deal with those issues. I pray this movie really helps not only my marriage but all the other people who face the same type of issues in theirs.”

Although I did not take the drastic measures that Caleb and the commenter did, the movie did inspire me to shrug off the last vestiges of porn addiction that had been afflicting me. I, too, have been an addict for over 20 years and I have been taking steps to rid my life of it (internet filter and accountability software among them), but I never went as far as I should have. I always left a little door or crack open and sure enough, the Enemy would sneak right in and ensnare me. Thanks to God and the message being spread by this fantastic film, I've made the changes I need to and haven't looked at porn for two weeks.

My wife and I went to see 'Fireproof' tonight. This is a top notch movie that stands toe to toe to any other feature out of Hollywood.
I highly recommend this movie and the book 'Love Dare' to every couple planning to marry or divorce.
I was especially affected by the 'get rid of the parasite' portion of the movie. That is one reason I will not view pornography on the internet. I love my wife too much to reduce her to the same level as smut on the computer.
Hollywood needs more actors like Cameron and more movies like 'Fireproof'.
