Zoom Purity Group (Ladies)

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:1)

Sister in Christ, you are not alone. If you have struggled with porn, sex outside of marriage, or any other sexual sin, you are not alone. The Church doesn’t talk about sex very well- we either avoid talking about it altogether, barely mention it saying, “It’s good in marriage… okay, bye!” Or, we talk about it in shaming ways. Men might be able to admit to a porn issue, but women?? Well, you can here. Here at Running Light Ministries we aim to speak vulnerably and scripturally about sex, lust and love.

I am a woman who loves God and wants to be sold out to following Jesus… and I have struggled with lusts of the flesh for a long time. Women struggle (and fall) to sexual sin too. I have. But, being encouraged that I am surrounded by other brothers and sisters who fight this fight too, I want to consistently get back up, learn to throw off this weight of sin, and run this race toward our beautiful Jesus, keeping my eyes on Him, for He is the author and finisher of my faith. And yours.

We’ve had a Women’s Group going in Tucson, AZ for years and it has ministered to many hearts, praise God! Now, we want to expand and give even more women the chance to connect to a group of other sisters in Christ who want to throw off these sins that ensnare us and help each other run with endurance! It is not easy. The flesh is strong, this body of death is stinky and sin is fun (Romans 7:24)! Or we wouldn’t do it. But it’s all lies. It is only pleasurable for a moment (Romans 11:25) and then regret, shame and death come. Jesus is better!

In our Women’s Purity Group we explore these concepts from a biblical perspective, studying the Word of God together, praying, being vulnerable and seeking to spur one another on toward the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14)! Come to our online Zoom meeting ready to be honest and seek the beauty of Jesus together, conquering our sinful desires (and replacing them with holy, rad ones!) one moment of grace and mercy at a time. Can’t wait to meet you and run this race together!

To God be the glory,

Katy

Love is love?

What’s in a slogan? What makes for good cultural propaganda today?

“That’s the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody’s going to be against, and everybody’s going to be for. Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn’t mean anything.” Noam Chomsky

Does this quote by Chomsky ring true with the slogan, Love is love?

Beau & Peter take a moment to discuss this slogan and its impact over the past 15 years in the United States. What do you think? Is love…love?

Generation Z’s Response to Roe vs. Wade

How do you think Gen Z would response to the Supreme Courts latest ruling on Roe vs. Wade? Peter and Beau break down a fascinating article with Generation Z’ers ideas on what to do now that abortion will no longer be legal in some states. What do you think the youth will say? It’s an eye opener to how a culture thinks concerning sex, feminism & hedonism.

Could the abortion issue actually be an anti-feminist issue? Does the abortion issue reveal the truth that men win once again in the society? Could it be that the culture is tricked once again to thinking it is doing the right for a movement only to really be playing for the other team? Is the lack of societal responsibility for males a sign that men really are held to a different standard then that of women?

Sex Questions Answered…from women!

Peter & Beau take some time to answer some questions from the ladies!

There are many myths the world taught me about sex, sexuality and sensuality (SSS). Many had to do with women and all of them were untrue (There is a book called Untrue by Wednesday Martin that is a interesting read). Humans are communitive beings that reproduce. It is no wonder that we think of sex often whether your male or female. Are you glad to be in a culture that is more open to discussing the questions and ideas we have on SSS or not? Do questions like these make you uncomfortable? Why? Check out this Podcast!

– God uses sexual/sensual language to talk about Israel, seems like he wants to BE with her?

– how do we ask God to fill the void (even physically) when we’re trying to remain pure/not have sex outside of marriage, but want sex?

– can we masturbate to the glory of God if we’re thinking about Him while we self gratify?
