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.

Much of the shame we carry is due to our own bad decisions and wrong choices. Butsometimes we carry guilt for things that aren’t our doing. Learn how to distinguish between the two and get on the road toward a clear conscience.
May 11, 2015
When we sin, our consciences become defiled. We move from light to shadow, hoping to hide from the consequences of what we’ve done. And yet when our deeds are exposed, our first response is to blame someone else.
