Monday, December 30, 2013"Surfing for God" Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

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’s encore conversation with Lynne shows 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).

What is it about sporting events that make us lose our minds? On any other day of the week, we are normal, level-headed, polite people, but the moment we walk into that gym or arena, we discover we are prone to yelling at people we don’t even know {in tones we wouldn’t dare use on anyone we DID know}, we’ve painted ourselves crazy colors and worn clothing we’d be embarrassed to see our teenagers consider. What makes you crazy about sports? How do you handle situations at events when someone needs to be confronted, even if it’s uncomfortable? The sports-minded Lynne and the sports-challenged Bekah take on this topic during BLT!
