Sexual Freedom: The Poisoned Oasis #4 of 4

November 5, 2009
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There's no denying it. At root, all of us are sexual creatures, with appetites given to us by God to be used as He intended. And since we all have sexual desires, it's easy to be trapped into satisfying those desires outside of God's will by putting sex in the wrong context. Today: a probing look at the damage done by the flood of pornography on the internet and in our media.

One would think that committed Christians have little chance of becoming alcoholics. But the snare of drinking can tempt anyone. As one drink leads to another, a believer can become chemically dependent, and join the ranks of those attending Alcoholics Anonymous. Christians are not exempt from the deadly snare of drinking and the damage it can do. Today: some final thoughts about alcoholism.
October 26, 2009
A drink: once in the bloodstream, alcohol messes with your mind and your judgment, and it loosens your moral anchor. Alcohol, in its various forms, is a trap baited with the promise of "the good life." In reality, it can wreck your life. There are lots of reasons to avoid alcohol, and very few reasons to indulge in it. Today: more sobering truth about alcoholism.
October 23, 2009
"Just one more"...most alcoholics say they can stop drinking whenever they want. Problem is, "whenever" never comes. Christians are not immune from the pull of alcohol, and the chance of a life ruined as a result. Sadly, one destroyed life invariably takes other lives with it. Today: you'll hear more sobering truth about alcoholism: the bondage of drink.
