Pathways to Addiction, Part 1 of 3 (Why Good People Do Bad Things)

June 26, 2013

An addiction is the blinding self-absorption of sin. It doesn’t matter what the sin is, and you just can’t tuck it away somewhere. It needs to be dealt with because a sin can progress into an addiction. It will become your master, and you’ll be its slave. Listen today as Pastor Lutzer explains how freedom is attainable.

In God we can find the fatherhood that all of us need whether we’ve come from a good home or a bad home. When we trust Christ as our Savior, God adopts us. We are His sons and daughters and we can say, “I am loved by God as much as He loves His Son, Jesus.”

When you come from a home without a good father, or from a home with no father at all, life can be tough—very tough. Sown in you may be seeds of future conflict. But those seeds need not germinate if we understand the fatherhood of God. Today, you’ll hear teaching that might be the key to opening a prison door in your life.

One person is the key to how you relate to life and to life’s stressful situations.   That person is your dad. We may not even realize the deep impact left by our fathers. Much of our inner pain can be traced to how we relate to our dads. Join us as we look at why your father is so important in your life.

Uncontrollable anger is a problem of the spirit, only solvable in the spiritual realm. The way to overcome it begins with admitting our problem, rejoicing in God’s acceptance and then forgiving others.
June 20, 2013
Some people think you can get rid of anger by hitting something inanimate and “letting off steam.” The trouble, however, is that this doesn’t work. We need to turn to the Bible to not only pinpoint the source of rage but also to help us handle it.
June 19, 2013
Rage can be hidden below a person’s calm exterior. It can burst forth at any time. Join us as we uncover the unpleasant truth about the roots of rage that lie within each of our hearts.

Everyone has been mad or angry at some point in their lives. Though it’s okay to be angry, the Bible warns us not to sin when we’re angered. When anger turns into rage—that’s when the line has been crossed. In today’s message we’ll look at the source of this destructive emotion.
June 17, 2013
We all know about the curse of shame: the guilt, the heavy emotional load. But what about the cure? In today’s message, you’ll hear powerful teaching on how to get rid of shame for good and live in the freedom of having a clear conscience.
June 14, 2013
If shame isn’t dealt with, it can lead to paranoia and excessive perfectionism, or it can leave a person as nothing but a doormat for others. But God has a cure for shame. Hebrews 12:2 tells us that Jesus “endured the cross, scorning its shame…” or, put another way, “try to destroy Me if you can!”
June 13, 2013
Shame was not part of the original creation. It was only after Adam and Eve took that bite that shame fell upon mankind. And now it’s such a painful emotion, people will do anything to avoid it. But God does have a cure for it!
