Being a Single, Sexual Man

October 22, 2019

Special Guest: David Kyle Foster (PurePassion.us)

Oftentimes when the topic of biblical sexuality comes up there is this idea that it only really applies to married people since that's the "approved" context for sexual activity. But where does this leave the single person who wants to live out a biblical sexual ethic? In this episode, David Kyle Foster weighs in on this topic. He has lots of professional and personal experience in what it means to be a single, sexual man. Our hope is that this conversation will help our single listeners better understand and apply God's design for sex in their singleness.

Your brain is an organ in your body that can break down, especially when there has been trauma or chaos in your history. But so often Christians will project shame on anyone who tries to address brain health with any other tools than "spiritual" resources. But God gives us many tangible tools (medicine) in addition to intangible resources (prayer, talk therapy, etc.). This episode helps you understand how to use all the available resources for better brain health and more peace.
