The Beyond the Battle Podcast navigateright Episode
Beyond the Battle author Noah Filipiak breaks down the second video in the BTB free small group curriculum, "Golden Gods with Golden Hair." The idea of this episode is that men look to women to give them what only God can, which is always (whether that's in porn, fantasy, or even marriage) going to end in disappointment. The same holds true for women looking to this from men. The episode looks at what it is we are truly looking for in relationships and sex, and the only guaranteed way to have that need met. This episode also looks at several Christian purity or marriage books which set marriage up as an idol and cater to our self-seeking sin nature in order to produce short-term results that have long term repercussions.
