When it comes to unity, we need to know who to bind ourselves to as brothers and sisters. The trick is knowing the difference between real heresies and honest doctrinal disagreements. The rest is how we treat those whom we have disagreement with, for our own sake and for the sake of the Kingdom.

The church is becoming increasingly divided. Some would say that they're standing up for the truth but some are divisive for the sake of being divisive. Can this be of the Lord or is something else at work here? Who really benefits from our divisions?

Sexual sin is rampant and having a huge impact on our culture and the church. It needs to be addressed. The problem is figuring our how. If approached wrong, we run the risk of failure in our mission to set free the captives.

It's easier than ever to have an affair. There's also a shift in our cultural attitude about infidelity. Advertisements for a site that specializes in adulterous relationships quip, "Life is short, have an affair!" Beyond the media, people are thinking differently. The statistics may shock and surprise you. Oh, if you think this is a problem that only the world faces and surely can't be in the church, tune in and get some real truth.

Cultural trends are teaching women lies that have to be addressed. Men aren't exactly getting great messages either. Sure, everyone loves yoga pants. Women like them because they're comfortable and men like them, well, for obvious reasons. Are they really a good idea? What about some of the other trends in attire? There may even be other consequences.

Since 2013 was such a big year for sex, we might as well keep it going. On the list of so-called alternative lifestyles, polyamory and polygamy are becoming the next media and cultural darlings. They can even be made to sound so spiritual, so positive. People in the Bible had more than one wife, right? Why not now? Is this really okay with God and does it line up with His word?

A lot of stories hit my desk in 2013 that need to be discussed. This one was one that I really hoped was a joke. The sexual revolution hits the church and tries to use Scripture to justify itself. You have got to hear this one to believe it.
