https://youtu.be/QASREBVDsLk I will admit right here and now that the first time I heard this song I balled. It was shortly after my wife and I split and had rededicated my life to the Lord. And I was not crying for me...per se...but for our kids...Brandon and Erin. We both have little feet following us.… Continue reading Sunday Music: Casting Crowns | Slow Fade

I found this little gem today while taking a small break at work today. I love how she uses porn as the other “wife” in this. Sadly many of you women know that a man, who has an addiction, has two wives….his real physical loving wife and the addiction…whether it it be porn, drugs or alcohol.

She continues, “this is often because we use non-biblical words to describe problems and struggles. It is not wrong or sinful to use words such as addiction, but it does pose some potential problems. When we do not use biblical terms to define our struggles, it is easy to think the Bible is not adequate to address all the problems of life. We find ourselves turning elsewhere for solutions to sin. Let’s get back to the Bible and develop the skill of biblically defining the problems with which we struggle. Identify the biblical terms that describe sexual addiction in the following passages:
