    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Newlife! Anyway… I was listening to your caller that said he hadn’t looked at porn for the last 3 years and I really appreciate how you turned the conversation to look at his problem that he didn’t think he had still. However, I suspect he is still masterbating and that is why he is so highly charged sexually. He may think that he’s OK because he isn’t looking at pictures, but he’s still sexualizing himself in a non-relationship way, and he can do it many time a day if he wants (which he kind-of eluded to).

      I don’t know about this guy but as far as you gals go, it is best to look to get your emotional needs met thru the Lord and really see if it is the Lord’s will that you get involved with anyone. Remember Paul’s admonishment “If you are married stay married,if you are single stay single.” Too many folks are caught up in this romantic fantasy stuff & as it turns out for most of you love addicts out there(and I use that term very broadly) you find out too late your picker doesn’t work and you end up getting married or dating because “everyone else is doing it” not because it is the Lord’s will. Stupid is as stupid does. When I hear you woman call in and sob about your husbands being sex addicts or emotionally unavailable I laugh at you. This show is great entertainment. Isure don’t feel sorry for you though. i love living alone and going to meetings and volunteer work but I would never be foolish enough to let you gals get your claws into me and manipulatate me to get your “emotional needs met” They are not needs…………they are desires and there are many legityimate ways to get these “needs” met without “falling in love” But since you refuse to listen to common sense keep getting married,suffer the consequences and keep me laughing.

    I am fully convinced that the Number 1 reason that there has been
    so many problems against New Life is because the devil is being
    destroyed so effectively by New Life, via Steven Arterburn, John
    Townsend, Henry Cloud, David Stoop, Julie and the rest of the New Life
    staff. Keep giving em heaven they have had enough of the other.
