Today we explore the “why” behind self-destructive sexual choices. Our guest will share research that found unwanted sexual behavior can be both shaped by and predicted based on the parts of our story—past and present—that remain unaddressed. When we pay attention to our unwanted sexual desires and identify the unique reasons that trigger them, the path of healing is revealed. Many of us feel ashamed and unwanted after years of sexual brokenness but we will learn to see that behavior as the very location God can most powerfully work in their lives.

What happens when good is called evil and evil is called good? How , then, shall we live? Join us to be challenged on living an authentic Christian life in a pagan culture.
