Many people call themselves Christians, but we know from Scripture that a true Christian has a few distinct characteristics that evidence growth and the presence of spiritual fruit.

[22:18] - 

If you’ve watched any TV or movies lately, you’ve most likely been accosted by the world’s opinions on sex.

It’s easy to assume that this is a 24/7 reality, even for Christians within marriage. Not so, says author and pastor Gary Thomas. In this interview, he argues that it’s perfectly fine to expect OK sex in your future marriage. What exactly does he mean? Listen in.
