Do you see yourself as not good enough? Do you constantly put yourself down, berate yourself over minor happenings, or feel unworthy and wonder why God would love you?

Friday, November 28, 2008Respectable Sins Host(s): Char Binkley

It's easy to become preoccupied with sins that have obvious grim consequences such as adultery, violence, and abortion.

How do we overcome these subtle sins? Jerry Bridges, author of "Respectable Sins, Confronting the Sins We Tolerate" (Navpress, ISBN# 1-60006-140-0) offers a message of hope, grace, and victory that he experienced in the trenches of his own battles with sin during Friday's encore Mid-Morning.
