The Summit Lecture Series 1

What’s the big deal with pornography?The truth is that it is a huge subject that we need to deal with honestly and frankly.

The first time sin happened was not in the Garden of Eden. The first time it happened was when Lucifer wanted to set his throne above the stars of God.
