Our self-made effort to bring resolution to the shame, the Sexual Revolution, has hardly been the salve we had hoped. Its fruit is the whole-scale breakdown of family and sexual accountability that we see today in our Tinder and porn driven culture. Yet the silver lining of the Sexual Revolution may very well be our willingness to see and say all things sexual utterly shamelessly.

The spirit of the age must never be the prevailing voice in viewing scripture.Read More
Moralism yields either two things: 1) self righteous pride, whereby I am offended by God for what He asks of me. I am offended that He asks me to suffer, for example. or 2) self hatred, since I recognize I cannot be good.
