Christopher from Mesa Arizona writes: My pastor mentioned that Samson could have been a sex addict. What do you think?
Samson is a fascinating prophet that we read about in Judges 13-16. When we think of Samson we think strength because God indeed gave him super-human strength. After all, he was ordained to lead the Israelites out of captivity from the Philistines. But Samson also had an incredible weakness with self control - specifically in the sexual integrity area.

Time Magazine has run a feature story on pornography. The first thing to notice is that the cover itself is pornographic, which is the reason why I covered most of the graphic up. While there are some interesting facts in the article, the conclusion (or lack thereof) is extremely frightening.
Listen to the show now and hear my response to this article and find out why their focus is so blurry.
Ben from Phoenix writes: If I love Jesus (and I do) how is it that I'm still tempted to watch pornography? I know that I shouldn’t, but to be completely honest with you I just can’t stop. I love Jesus, but it seems that pornography is where my pleasure comes from.
Listen now to listen how Dustin answers Ben's question.
Love is a commitment that seeks the other person’s best and highest good, no matter the cost to me. Pornography on the other hand is the very opposite of love.
My guest today is Roxanne Stone, Editor In Chief of the Barna Group and she explains their latest findings regarding pornography and how the impact of porn is having on the digital age.
Susan in Phoenix asks, "What do you think of me sending naked photos of myself to my husband using Snapchat? I do have a concern that this may lead to him using more pornography?"
What do you think? How would your respond to Susan? Maybe as a wife you're doing the same thing, or as a husband would like her to do the same for you.
But more importantly, what does God's Word say about this activity? Find out what Dustin has to say by listening to the show.
There is a lot of confusion regarding what Easter Sunday is all about. For most people, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts. So the question is, how did all this bunny business get in the way of the most important day in the history of the the world?
There is absolutely no connection between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the modern traditions related to Easter Sunday that we’re seeing at the local church.
So let me explain what happened. In order to make Christianity more attractive to non-Christians...
Listen to the show to see why Resurrection Sunday (and not Easter) is the most important day in the history of mankind and the world.
Several weeks ago I stopped at a gas station after teaching the men’s purity group. As I was filling up with gasoline a young woman approached me asking if I had a few dollars. The gas station was right next to an adult cabaret and by the way she was dressed I assumed that she worked at the cabaret or was a prostitute. I explained that I didn’t have any cash, but yet she pressed and asked if I wouldn’t mind going into the gas station and buying her something to eat. I thought to myself wow… she’s bold.

Jon from San Diego writes: I’m so confused by what people are telling me at Church. Some people say that having sex outside of marriage is Biblical because the times are different from when the Bible was written and others say that it’s a sin. What verse in the Bible is your “go to” verse when explaining God’s will for sexual purity.
We talk about our lives as a journey on this radio program quite a bit. A journey that is full of ups and downs, excitement and pain. We’re all on a journey in search of something, right? We're headed either in one direction or another - God's plan or our plan.
In Matthew 13:44, Jesus tells us a very short story of one man on a journey. He says, "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
On today's show, Pastor Dustin expands on this short story from Jesus and asks several life changing questions: Was this man searching for this treasure or did he simply stumble upon it? Was this a man just drifting through life trespassing on other people’s property and he finds this life changing treasure? Or is it the result of something very different.
