Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Sexual sin, pornography, and sexual addiction is out of control in our culture. Although this deadly pandemic has infected many in the Church, the subject is still so taboo that it leaves many Christian men struggling silently with these issues. As a result their relationships with Christ, their spouse, their children, and others are at risk of disintegrating. Shame, guilt, depression, anxiety, and anger are just a sampling of deeper problems these men face. Counselors and specialists in the area of healthy sexuality including Heath Lisenby, Sharon Miley, and Dr. Greg Sowles join Char during Friday's "Mid-Morning" to offer sound answers, hope, and next steps for anyone suffering from this deadly pandemic, yet desiring to be free from these sexual sins.
