I have had the privilege to join a men's group where we would all hold each other accountable for whatever it is we may need help with. Unfortunately the group didn't last very long and we haven't been able to get it re-started. I have two questions here. 1. Is it okay to be in such a group or should it be a group with more focus than the needs of the individuals' themselves? 2. Even though the group doesn't meet with each other for such purposes anymore, is it appropriate to ask them how they are doing with such struggles anymore?
I would just call whichever person you felt closest to and whom you felt was mature, and ask if he could be your AP. If you want to, ask him to hold the passwords on your internet filters and receive the email alerts as from SafeEyes, X3watchpro, or other program. I wouldn't just ask anyone in the group about their personal life since it might be offensive to them. Have the agreement first, then agree on the manner of questioning, etc. one step at a time. I think its important in these things to 1) Do away with shame. Encourage and give insight 2) Be transparent and honest since you know you won't be condemned 3) Do this voluntarily, not because you think you have to, or you are being forced into it. Know one likes to be told what to do. Don't be ashamed or apologize for being a sexual creature with sexual desires and interests. God's creation needs no apology.
