Stop committing adultery

Every time you view strangers from an ANR perspective, you cheat on your Spouse. You and I gradually tear our families apart, not to mention that of the person we lust after. We are the reason God the Son was stripped, whipped, tortured and crucified. His blood is far too precious to spend ogling people…

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

If you struggle with intrusive mental images of ANRs, then “think often that Christ suffered agony for your purity. Fight image with image. Christ crying in agony.” Titus 2:14: Christ gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for…

Be holy, for I am holy

Called to Be Holy 13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action,[b] and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is…

The Line

“Don’t look for the line. What do I mean by that? Well, I’ve been asked a lot recently ‘Ryan, what do you mean? You say that there’s progressive sanctification where we all stumble in many ways, and there’s patterned sin. Where’s the line?’ I don’t know where the line is. I mean – I know…

Avoid staring and lusting

It’s easy to get habituated to sin and rationalize it away, but the truth is, each time you do this, it becomes harder to break the habit. The deception will work its way into your heart and eat your soul. I’ve seen Christians fall from high positions. Don’t think it can’t happen to you. Treat…

God is not “cool” with your sinning

Don’t get it twisted. Because God is pro-ANR doesn’t mean He’s okay with and really enjoys it when you obsess and have mental, or God forbid, real nursing sessions with people to whom you’re not married. If that describes you, please repent at once. Don’t store up God’s wrath or discipline for yourself. We all…
