We've got a hundred cable channels, 22 theater screens, DVDs, the Internet, and Facebook. Hey...who needs more? Today's Christians are awash in a sea of pleasures. We've got time for our plasma TV's and surround-sound movies, but do we have time for God? On this broadcast: we'll all hear a challenge to get our priorities straight. Please stay with us.

Our culture says, "If it feels good, do it." So...does having a desire mean it's always OK to satisfy it? .......no...you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater because you feel like it. While we all have desires, the Christian satisfies those desires in godly ways. Today: how to live for Christ in a world that's focused on pleasures. Please stay with us.

The TV commercial once said: "You only go around once in life. Grab all the gusto you can." That's not a bad idea. .......but the gusto you should grab is probably not what most people have in mind. A lot of Christians are falling victim to the mad dash for self-fulfillment. Today: you'll hear a challenge to a pleasure-mad culture that's infecting the church. Stay with us.

No one involved in sexual promiscuity really wants to be there. They are trapped, looking desperately for a way out.... It's said that all of Satan's apples have worms...and too many Christians have bitten into casual sex. But God has given us a way out of the lifestyle of so-called sexual freedom. Today: words of hope from the Bible for those caught in the web of sexual sin.

If we could see the scars we'll bear when we break God's laws on sexual behavior, we'd never break them in the first place...... .......God designed our greatest sexual fulfillment to be in a covenant marriage relationship, not in a succession of one-night stands. Casual sex leaves behind some not-so-casual memories...memories that create bondage. Today: the myth of sexual freedom.
November 4, 2009
God intended marriage to be permanent. But our culture says marriages can be broken when a better deal comes along...... .......however, that better deal carries with it some heavy baggage: the psychological burden of multiple sexual bonds, and the fragmented families left behind. Today: more on the sexual revolution's dark side, and why God's design for marriage is the only one that works.
November 3, 2009
Watch prime-time TV for two hours. You'll conclude that extramarital sex and divorce are choices we can freely make...... .......yes, we're free all right...free to ruin our lives and ruin the lives of others. The sexual revolution has a dark side...and we'd better count the cost. Today: we'll take a frank look at freedom run amok...even among Christians. Please stay with us.

Pornography: it's everywhere, perverting the right use of sex. Sadly, "everywhere" includes the computers of Christians, yet the Bible's commands to abstain from lust are still in force. Millions of people are addicted to the cheap thrills of porn. Today, you'll hear about the way out of the pornography trap that snares so many: even Christians. Please stay with us.

It used to be confined to back-alley theaters and musty bookshops. Now, pornography is yours at the click of a mouse and the internet can bring filth into the privacy of our own homes, as high-tech sinners enjoy their hidden addictions. Today: what Jesus says about the lust of the eye, and why it's high time to stop the flood of decadence before we drown. Stay with us.
October 29, 2009
One of Satan's oldest tricks is getting us to satisfy legitimate desires outside of God's will. Eve ate forbidden fruit. And when we dabble in pornography the result is moral decay and destroyed relationships. Once hidden behind counters, porn is now on your PC screen with one click of the mouse. Today: more insights on the addiction millions are trying to hide. Stay with us.
