Escape the World’s Infatuation with Sex
"The deepest cure for lust never comes from strategies or accountability. The deepest cure comes from seeing the soul-staggering grandeur of God. Today’s APJ episode deals with mature themes. Particularly, Pastor John deals here with the world’s infatuation with lust, and how to escape it. The clip is from a 2004 sermon. Pastor John had been preaching on Romans 11:32–33, a text that tells us, “God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.” Verse 32 is an astonishing claim — so astonishing that Paul moves directly into worship: “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” Late in his 2004 sermon, as he turned to celebrate the majesty of our sovereign God so clearly on display in this text, Pastor John looked at some troubling social trends." from video introduction.
