It is a period of civil war. Sexual sin that it is a sin that is more damaging to our relationship with God and with others. The weirdness of the gospel is not that people who believe it are moral and have good character. Sep 01, Kevin rated it it was ok.

I would expect and see all of the same advice in a variety of self-help and business books.
