Setting Captives Free

Some of you, I am sure, are already familiar with the online counseling ministry of Setting Captives Free. Numerous courses designed to help those in bondage to “life-dominating sins” are provided along with personalized mentoring relationships.

4 Sexual Purity courses are for those struggling to overcome habits of impurity, homosexuality, and pornography. There is also a 31-day Teen Purity challenge.

4 Food Issue courses are for those seeking to overcome gluttony or destructive eating habits such as anorexia and bulimia.

3 Substance Abuse courses are for those desiring to overcome addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.

By His Wounds is a 60-day course that addresses self-injury.

And Higher Stakes helps those battling bondage to gambling.

The About Us page of their website introduces the ministry of SCF:

Setting Captives Free is a non-denominational ministry which teaches the biblical principles of freedom in Jesus Christ. Founder and President, Mike Cleveland, was captive to habitual sins for many years. He finally began to seek help and learned the biblical solution to his sin problem: repentance, forgiveness, and the newness of life that comes through the gospel. In January, 1999, Mike found forgiveness of sins in Jesus Christ and God changed his heart. Since that time, he has been completely free from all forms of habitual sin, by God’s grace.

  1. Hey Paul! SCF is a great online ministry. I did the 60 day food issues course in 2008 and it was great. Starting Monday, I will blog each week about what I learned from the course. I’m looking forward to sharing this with the readers!

  2. I look forward to your blogs on this topic. What is the blog address so I can pass it on?
