God Freed him from Sexual Addiction

From an early age, Victor struggled with lust toward men and women. God confronted him, and Victor surrendered his life and desires to God.

For most of his life, Victor appeared to have it all.

He was a football star in high school and college and grew up in a close-knit church-going family.

From an early age, Victor longed to experience what he thought was true love. A fascination that started from watching a soap opera love scene.

To Victor, the love of his family fails in comparison especially that of his father a gulf war veteran who disciplined him harshly.

Another place Victor didn’t feel loved was church.

He started to crave the attention of boys and started experimenting with them.

From the age of 5-8, he had several encounters with boys his age. He jumped at the chance to be the girl playing house or the woman playing doctor because it was an opportunity for him to reenact what he had watched in the soap opera scene.

When he was eleven a friend showed him an x rated movie.

Throughout high school and college, he put his energy into pursuing his growing addiction to sex with women and men.

The space of emptiness was growing and he sought to fill it with the activities he was involved in.

In 2008 Victor graduated from college and got a job as a long-term substitute teacher. He moved back in with his parents presenting a clean-cut image at home. While on weekends he was pursuing gay sex parties and frequenting gay chat rooms for temporary hookups.

For almost three years he chased that illusion of love. Then in January 2011 after he came home drunk from a New Year’s Eve party his mom made him go to church with the family.

When the service was over the bishop called Victor by name up to the front.

And told him four simple words that stuck with him for the entire day.

“Go And Sin No More”.

Victor stopped sleeping around and partying and started attending church.

He begin reading his bible and started studying the word of God.

God’s love snatched him out of a world of lust and perversion and being a secret homosexual.

Today Victor is married with two beautiful children. 

He is never shy to share his story and to bring people to the pure unconditional love he found in Jesus.
