We are to the point in America where can’t discuss differing points of view. Social media has gone psycho with mostly shouting matches and no progress. Going further apart. Distancing ourselves seems to be an agenda item.
Larry does it right here, I believe. What do you think? I haven’t vetted all his points but he has right demeanor and perspective. I appreciate some levelheadedness!
Homosexuality, she says, “is a sin to be mortified, not modified.” She took me to Romans 6:4–5.
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
This could be one used in the pose section either early on or much later in the details.
When Chris Beall admitted his pornography addiction to his wife Cindy, they made the tough decision to work on marriage restoration.

From Jeffrey: A poem I originally wrote for open mic at Pacific University. It highlights my journey with casual sex and the conclusion I came to that sex as recreation, or just for fun, is unable to satisfy us the way we were meant to be satisfied. Sex is good, in it’s proper context. This poem mainly focuses though on anyone who has been deeply affected, hurt, and damaged by sexual sin. Forgiveness and mercy are given freely by Jesus. He cleans, restores, and heals us beyond measure and asks nothing in return. He saw all our sin and filth before he went to the cross and it was still his joy to go get us.
