Hey man I am so so sorry that you had to go through something like this! I will be praying for you and your wife, congratulations by the way :)
I think it is a terrible thing for Christians to get so caught up with the law and the rules of doctrine. Our relationship with God is a relationship not a set of rules. The biggest part of who God is and what he does is love. God's love for you is not tied up in what any church says about you. I pray that you will find peace and rest in that love as he guides you into deeper revelation about who he is. Because truthfully no one has it totally figured out and some of us as a Church (Whole Church not just Mars Hill) are definitely way off because we have different views. Sorry this is actually longer than I wanted to make it.
Oh and if porn really does have a stronghold in your life it can be taken care of by focusing on beating it but that is a really really hard road. I would suggest you maybe check out something like the Sozo Ministry at Bethel Church in Redding, CA and see if that is something you are interested in.
All the best and may all the love of God rest upon you!
