    #485 - A Vision of Jesus: Full of Grace and Truth

    #485 - A Vision of Jesus: Full of Grace and Truth

    Over the next four weeks, we’re going to play a series of messages by Reverend Dave Leopold from the Zion Faith Homes. These talks, delivered back in February to the men in our Residential Program, focused on helping us to see the character of Jesus Christ more clearly.  
    This week’s message comes from John 1, where the Apostle wrote that Jesus Christ came to us, “full of grace and truth.” These words are a profound revelation about Jesus’ ministry, but they also reveal to us what we truly need from God in this life. Grace enables us to do what we could never do on our own, while truth tells us exactly what we need to hear and shows us what we need to see. Together, they work to help us to find our way towards real freedom.

    #484 - Overcoming the Destructive Nature of Pride

    #484 - Overcoming the Destructive Nature of Pride

    People who are sincerely seeking freedom from sexual sin usually have a vague idea that there is something under the surface that needs to be dealt with. This is true, but they are usually very surprised when they find out what it is. In a recent series of shows, we asked the question, “What does that have to do with my problem?” And all the issues we touched on in those episodes – self-righteousness, self-pity, obsession with success – all of them flow out of a thriving self-life. In this week’s show, we look at another key feature of the self-life: pride, and how it really is another hidden fuel of sexual sin.

    #483 - How to Wisely Confess Sexual Sin to a Wife

    #483 - How to Wisely Confess Sexual Sin to a Wife

    Last week we looked at how vital confession is for someone to find freedom from sexual sin. This week we look at another aspect of confession: confessing adultery to a wife. Pastor Ed and Kathy Gallagher join us to look at some practical steps and considerations when confessing sexual sin, as well as some of the struggles that come with taking this difficult, but vital step.

    #482 - No Confession, No Freedom

    #482 - No Confession, No Freedom

    One of the most common lies whispered into the ears of men in sexual sin is, "You can get free between you and God. No one needs to know." While many are willing to believe this deception, the truth is that confession is absolutely essential for anyone who desires genuine freedom. In this episode, Pastor Ed Buch helps us unpack the spiritual realities behind confession.

    #374 - (REPLAY) A Hedonistic Lifestyle Opens the Door for an Addiction to Pornography

    #374 - (REPLAY) A Hedonistic Lifestyle Opens the Door for an Addiction to Pornography

    We’re taking a break from producing a new episode this week as we get settled, following a wonderful time at our Annual Conference this past weekend. This replay is one of our favorites from our 20 Truths series, and we hope it’s a blessing to you. In it, we’ll define hedonism, and look at its close connection with sexual sin. Much of today's church lives more to please self than to honor Jesus, and it’s this kind of lifestyle which opens the door for sexual sin. If you haven't listened through the whole 20 Truths series before, we’d also encourage you to go back and listen to that series. Just look for episodes 363-364 and 366-381.

    #481 - Ask the Counselor: What Does THAT Have To Do With My Problem? (Part 2)

    #481 - Ask the Counselor: What Does THAT Have To Do With My Problem? (Part 2)

    In part two of a new Ask the Counselor episode, we continue looking at sins which are closely tied to sexual addiction. Today we’ll look at self-pity, covetousness, self-righteousness and living by our feelings. While on the surface these issues may seem unrelated, they are still sins that must be dealt with if a person is ever to experience genuine freedom over their sexual addiction.

Best Purity Podcast

While I do believe in deliverance for some things, this goes deep into the nature of man and sin and is helping me deal with my pride. I need so much more of God working in me because my heart isn’t surrendering enough. But listening to this challenges me to change and not in my own strength

Jesus bless this ministry
