Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

Every day, government pressure mounts on the Christian faith. How should believers respond? We can look to a similar time of hardship long ago for guidance.

After a long period of nation-wide disobedience, God judged Israel by allowing Babylon to carry them off into captivity. They became a minority in a pagan land, just as Christians are fast becoming a minority in America. The parallels are crucial to understand. In this message, Pastor Lutzer is interviewed about his new book, “The Church In Babylon.”

A lot of people think the Bible says: “God helps those who help themselves.” It doesn’t. When it comes to salvation, here’s what God really says: we cannot help ourselves. Only He can save. In this message, another lie about God is unmasked.

Long-term gain can be short-circuited when investors go for short-term, fast profits. The same is true in life. Going for immediate pleasures can ruin the potential to enjoy the overwhelming pleasures of God—pleasures that last a lifetime.

When we sin, our consciences become defiled. We move from the light to the shadows, hoping to hide from the consequences of what we’ve done. And sadly, when our deeds are exposed, our first response is to blame someone else.

Ever since the beginning of man’s existence, Satan has lied to us. In the Garden of Eden, he lied to persuade Eve to take fruit from the forbidden tree. And Satan’s lies continue even today.

Deep in every human heart is a conscience—that sense of right and wrong that we cannot avoid. A clear conscience gives us freedom. When our sin is troubling us, we’re in bondage. In this message we begin a series that will help us clean up our lives, and our consciences.
