Have you ever entrusted yourself to a mentor who wanted you to be more oriented toward man-made rules than relationships? Rather than basing advice on the teaching of Christ and the counsel of the Bible, did this mentor develop a personal potpourri of teachings? Jesus addressed this in the Sermon on the Mount when He taught His disciples how to go with discretion to their teachers and leaders. Tuesday, Mitch Kruse and Lynne unpack this section of teaching and take your questions!

What if you stopped looking for "a soul mate" and started looking for "a sole mate" - someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn't about finding "the one" but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn't design relationships to make you happy, but to make you holy? Respected author, Gary Thomas talks with Lynne about a transforming way to look at romantic relationships. A good marriage isn't something you find...it's something you make through The Sacred Search (Cook, ISBN# 978-1-4347-0489-4).

Does the phrase “end of the world” scare you half to death? Bob Hostetler gets that. The author of How to Survive the End of the World (Leafwood ISBN# 978-0891123255) takes the typical “dark and dismal catastrophe” topic and tackles it in a fresh, invigorating way. Without using any theories or timelines, he takes the Bible’s revelation of living in the end times the way it was meant to be seen: as a survivor’s guide…an encouraging and equipping message that will prepare you for the end, whenever and however it may come.

In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70% of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick joins Lynne to show us how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire – and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want. Backed by Scripture, personal and professional experience, he helps us understand how porn struggles begin, how to prevent them ,and how to overcome the compulsion once it begins and most of all, the joy of Surfing for God (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-0-8499-4723-0).
