Q&A #251- Sexual addiction, Pornography, Youth and gender identity, and maybe more!

Jun 15, 2022    Kyle Toner, Blake Hardy, Doug Phaneuf
In our 251st episode, Doug, Blake and Kyle join as a team to discuss the following:

1. As a Christian man I’ve struggled with sexual addictions of lusting, pornography, and masturbation for about 10 years. Despite my disgust for it and my desire to repent from my sin I have failed hundreds of times. Now as a soon to be husband and a future father, I want nothing more than to be an example of a Christian man after God’s own heart. What advice do you have in helping me quit this pattern of sin?

2. Since the pandemic, there appears to be more youth (ages ~12-15) who are identifying with different genders than from birth. I support gender identification, when it's real, but I suspect there is also a "fad" underway since there have been far more incidents in the last year or two. Can you speak to this? Is there an awareness opportunity for families to ty and "get in front" of it? It's challenging for parents to be advised by their youth/child they suddenly identify differently when there have not be any outward signs, even if a parent suspects their child of following a fad, they still must respond carefully to avoid generating a significant conflict (which is exhausting).
