    Relationships: Sexual, Love, Couples, Open, Closed, BDSM, Monogamous, Polygamous

    in Blogs

    Some highlights of the clip: 


    11 min: Discssussed relationship with mothers


    20 min: Discussed ideal relationships, being Pan, Poly & Single after marriage.


    28 min 45 sec: Potentially triggering due to speaking about abusive relationships.


    I would love to discuss intimate relationships of all types. We have monogamous couples, bi-couples, polygamous couples, open relationships, closed relationships, single relations, swingers, BDSM, Fetishes and probably more than even I just listed. I want to know how they work? What makes a relationship functional? What is going to make them fail? How do we really define relationships today? What do they mean to you? How do you handle them? Are certain relationships better than others? If so, why, what makes one thing better than another. Relationships and sex are another area I want to hear from you on. 


    Relationships form the backbone of society. In every person's life they have formed relationships with many different people. All of these relationships are not the same though. Some the person might not even consider to be relationships. Also the interactions and dynamics of each of these relationships are so vast. Yet we do them without thought. We are on auto pilot with most. However we think about relationships at times to the point of obsession. I want to hear what you have to say about relationships. Guest can call in at (347) 843-4325 during the show and just listen or come online and talk.

    The High Cost Of Sexual Sin

    in Christianity

    1 Cor 6:18-20   says Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.  We were bought with a price, and a costly one it was for all the sin of mankind. But its something about sexual sin that has a dangerous and disasterous effect to it. Simply put, its short term pleasure with long term consequences . This perhaps gives real meaning to the phrase "you reap what you sow".....this includes shame, guilt, pain and heart ache as well as a life time of regret. Truly a price we can't pay. The good news however is that Christ understands our struggle with the desires of the flesh and He loves us so much He seeks to save us from the bondage of sin. We must ask ourselves these and many other questions regarding sexual sin. Am I willing to lose my marriage with sexual sin? Am I ready to lose my family, friends to my own lustful cravings? How much am I willing to pay? And the master manipulator, Satan will never tell you the cost of this sin up front but he will be expecting you to pay in the end. Thanks be to God that we already have a way of escape through the cross, becuase Jesus already paid it all.
