Grace is the power

The perspective used in this pamphlet for finding the answers to these questions will be, unashamedly, the Bible. Sexual desires are one of the strongest desires God created.

But God's Word must govern our feelings and emotions. As ugly as the sin is, forgiveness is more beautiful, and grace makes us beautiful before God. As powerful as they may be, they can be controlled, for the power that is for us is greater than the power that is against us.
