I had a great time on the Undone Redone Podcast with Tray and Mel Lovvorn. Check out Undone Redone for tons of great grace-centered resources to bring wholeness to your marriage and/or sexual brokenness.
Game of Thrones kicked off its 8th and final season this week. The Flip Side presents the debate on if GOT is porn or not.
Episode 3 / 65 covers a question from the mailbag about lust vs. attraction. Noah talks about the Enneagram and a new book released this week by his friends Clare and Scott Loughrige, along with Adele and Doug Calhoun, Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram: A Handbook for Harmony and Transformation. Noah’s rant covers all the ways the map app will drive you bonkers, including talking to you while using a public restroom.
It’s a line often heard in well-intentioned lessons on sexual purity:God created sex. It’s His. Pornography and premarital sex are just distortions of what God made that is good: sex within marriage. Those sexual desires you feel are good, you just need to channel them into marriage. (Or as often said, “toward your wife.”) All of the above is true and I have taught most of it myself in bits and pieces. But there are some major shortfalls to this type of teaching and mindset.
Episode 2 / 64 covers why Lent is awesome, using Lent to help the most vulnerable this year (and if you’d like to get involved). The mailbag brings a question about masturbation, and Noah’s Rant targets the Folgers Cafe at the local Marathon gas station.
We crack open the mailbag in episode 12 to answer questions about fearing God and if God is always disappointed in us.
We spend time in Matthew 3:16-17 for guidance on how to spend daily rhythm time with Jesus.
And the topic of the episode centers around knowing what The Best Thing is.
