    Submitting to God When It's Hard

    Submitting to God When It's Hard

    The Bible says that wives should submit to their husbands, but that Scripture should never be used in an abusive way. This is especially true if trust in the relationship has been harmed by a pornography addiction. John, Greg and Erin address when biblical submission is misused and how community can help a marriage that's been shaken by a porn struggle. Featuring Mrs. Rosie Makinney.
