In this episode Nate and Scott discuss how God has given us all sexual desires, and they are good. But outside God's plan for sex, those desires are a destructive force that leads to sin against the holy God. If we are in Christ Jesus, then God calls us to pursue Holiness. And our sanctification, including our sexual purity, is His will for us.
