    Forgiveness 2.0

    Forgiveness 2.0

    I have matured and grown in my views of forgiveness, so I wanted to re-address the topic before I close the podcast. 

    How does Scripture define it? How is it portrayed? Does it mean we take the relational hit for the sake of taking the hit?

    Pornography: An episode for those filmed, those who consume, and betrayed partners. Explicit.

    This episode is explicit and is not intended for minors. 

    I speak to the connection between pornography and sex trafficking. Porn use has never been my battle, and I have never been married to an addict, so I reached out to two people who could speak into those aspects of the porn topic. Sarah McDugal speaks to betrayed partners. Find her work here: https://www.wildernesstowild.com/ or traumamamas.app/get. Andrew J. Bauman speaks to those (especially men) who consume.

    Engaging Church While Healing from Severe Church Pain, Pt. 2

    Engaging Church While Healing from Severe Church Pain, Pt. 2

    How do you find truth? Related, but slightly different: how do you build healthy theology? How do I personally filter out theology or advocacy found online? How do you recognize healthy, unhealthy, or Pharisaical churches? What can I tell you about finding a healthy church, or dealing with anger or fear in regards to church?
