To better understand why this is one of life’s greatest challenges, Jonathan and Matthew talk about overlapping issues of how family dysfunction, sexual abuse, pornography, bullying, and childhood traumas played a role in Matthew’s sexual identity. At the conclusion of this episode, Jonathan and Matthew end the discussion on the role of forgiveness as critical to living a life of higher purpose.

Theology On The Street
Augustine is one of the greatest theologians the church has ever produced. He lived in the fourth century and played a key role in the development of the doctrine of the Trinity. Central to Augustine’s theology was his idea of the Doctrine of Original Sin. To appreciate Augustine, I recommend you pick up a copy of his book, Confessions.
