Unmuzzled: Escaping Sexual Sin, Satan’s Grip On Men (book review)
One of the most common struggles that men have, both in the church and outside the church is with sexual sins. The author begins the book describing his life experiences on how he was muzzled by Satan with sexual sins. He reveals how it started out with just some thoughts and later led to actions.
Shelton calls it a muzzling, because when a Christian man falls into sexual sin, he does not want to talk about it or even admit it to anyone. Satan holds him captive to the sin.
Once this sin is admitted, he shows what the Bible says on how to get away from it. He points out how God always makes a way to get away from sexual temptations, but that a person must be willing to accept and choose that path. In the process of choosing God’s path, it takes the muzzle off of the man and allows him to talk about it and change, rejecting the temptations.
The acronym that he uses to help one remember the steps is: S.A.F.E. Stay away. Flee. Escape.
One of the things that I really enjoy about this book is the amount he uses scriptures for all of his points and calls to action. Not only does he use scripture, but he applies it to every day life of most people.
Shelton is a husband and father who has struggled with sexual sin to an extreme degree, but has been set free by the power of God’s word and Holy Spirit guiding him. His desire is to set other men free from being muzzled by Satan with this sin.
This book is a simple read, without any high level, college speaking. He asks many questions and calls for action in each chapter. Each chapter is only a few pages, so it makes for short time to read a chapter and give you time to think and act on what you read.
Whether you struggle with this sin or not, I highly suggest reading it. It can help you overcome it, if you struggle, or it can help you help someone else that is struggling with this sin.
