American men grew up idolizing James Bond for many reasons, including always "getting the girl." I admit, I'm a fan of the Ian Fleming character and movies. But this week, I want you to see that James Bond is an icon of infidelity. God’s man can learn something from agent 007.

 

License to Kill Heart, Body and Soul

Bond, James Bond, had a “license to kill” in the line of duty, which was a license to thrill audiences for decades with action, adventure and romance. His license gave him access to travel the world and “entertain” women of all nationalities and backgrounds. This fantasy hero captures men, creating an unreal notion that men, and women, can slip between the sheets without causing any damage.

Don't Be A Lookie-Lulu: Fight For Focus

Don't tell me you haven't looked ... You know what I'm talking about -- women wearing skin-tight yoga pants. It's even big news. Clothing maker Lululemon Athletica lost millions of dollars from investors a couple of years back when reports came out that they had to recall their yoga pants for being too sheer. Imagine being in the store and seeing a woman having to prove the knit is too thin! Well, apparently the company fixed the sheer problem, but leads me to think there's more to this story than meets the eye.

 

Many times, temptation starts with the eyes, and where you look. In James 1:14-16, God reveals how sin starts with a look, and ends with destruction. “But each one is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires. Then when desire conceives, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is full grown, it gives birth to death.”

News reported recently that actress Penelope Cruz will be the oldest-ever Bond girl. Why would that make national headlines? Because American men grew up idolizing James Bond for many reasons, including always "getting the girl." I admit, I'm a fan of the Ian Fleming character and movies. But this week, I want you to see that James Bond is an icon of infidelity. God’s man can learn something from agent 007.

The Man Cycle - God LOVES Sex - Part One

It’s silly not to talk about the number one issue, the number one temptation, the number one economic engine in culture for men — and that’s sex.


Testosterone never goes away; your sex life isn’t just a physical thing. God knows where your sex life really is - on the inside. There is so much sexual confusion, so much brokenness. I have never met a man who hasn’t, in some way, been impacted or broken in the area of sex in one form or another.


God’s mind on sex is very positive. Sex is a gift. That’s how He created you. Sex is a good thing. He wants you to use that aspect of your life for positive things, not to misuse or abuse it.


God hates sexual sin, not because He hates sex, but because He loves life. Our identity as God’s men, our energy and expression sexually is to honor, worship and glorify God.

Deep Love Solves Deep Problems - The Fantasy Island Series III

I hit you really hard in the last several articles about how fantasy impacts reality, emotional maturity, emotional intimacy and your relationships. The reason I’m doing this is that the world, the flesh, and Satan won’t tell you the facts, but as your pastor, friend and brother in Christ, a fellow struggler, I will tell you the facts.

 


Your relationship with fantasy, disconnects, disappoints and destroys your relationship with God and the people you love. If you don’t begin to understand the problem of fantasy and what it is, you are toast.
