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.
He was a poser, lying to his wife, but miraculiously redeemed by God.

God drew Paul to Himself. Then he “pulled” him out of sexual addiction. Fascinating!
God did a wonderful thing in his real relationship.

Here is a long quote from the John Eldredge book, Wild At Heart about men as boys coming into our
sexual identity. Men, we have to deal with this issue, we have to deal with it if and when we don’t have a healthy view of the women in our lives. I have quoted John Eldredge here because he helps us begin getting our view of women aligned to the view that God wants us to own. He wants healthy relationships between his children–men and women in the church.
We may have started puberty on the wrong foot, but there is good news. We can and will right our thinking about our sisters in Christ and other women of course.
Read the following and begin asking God how He would have you view the women in your life. Read more of this post

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.

After hearing God say the word ‘PORN’ to them, two young Christian pastors are off on a quixotic journey into the world of pornography. Their mission: Help the poor suffering masses who are in the grips of the dirty filthy smutty PORNO PLAGUE that is sweeping our entire planet! In Chapter 10, Porno Pastors Craig and Mike get a TV interview and find new courage to press their message that Jesus Loves Porn Stars
