“God has called Sandy and me to minister to people in crisis resulting from pornography and other forms of sexual entanglements. These invariably bring pain and destruction.
“After having lived for the Lord for many years I became entangled in my own sexual sin. My entanglements had reached addictive proportions, and my sinful choices had put in jeopardy all the things I claimed to be near and dear to me: my marriage, my family, my career, and my writing and speaking ministry. I had been “sorry” for my sexual sin, but I had never truly repented. I now understand that true repentance demands turning around and running away from the sin. I finally did repent in 1989. I remember crying out to God, ‘Lord I will face it all, and I will forsake it all.’ Repentance became the foundation for a prolonged period of emotional and spiritual healing leading to recovery and restoration. I am grateful for the Lord, my wife, family, and the spiritual care team who walked with me through the process.”
Dr. Earl Wilson received his ThB. degree from Multnomah University and his Ph.D from the University of Oregon. Earl became a counselor at Idaho State University and then a faculty member at the University of Nebraska, where he was promoted to tenured full professor and director of the Counseling Psychology and Rehabilitation Counseling Programs.
During the 1970-1971 school year, Earl and his family took a leave of absence, and Earl taught counseling at the National University for Teachers Education in Tehran, Iran.
In the fall of 1977, Earl joined the faculty of Western Seminary as a professor in the doctoral program in psychology. He served in that capacity until 1989 when his sin became public. After serving a year of probation levied by Oregon State Board of Psychologist Examiners, Earl returned to private practice but shifted the focus to men who are entrenched in sexually compulsive behavior (sexual addiction).
Earl has authored and co-authored 15 books and booklets. His video series Especially for Men is available for viewing on this website.
