Infidelity can rip a marriage apart — and it’s hard to imagine a betrayal more painful than finding out your spouse is involved with someone else. Josh and Katie Walters share the story of Katie’s affair with the husband of their good friend couple, and how Katie vacillated for quite a while, torn between doing the right thing (ending the affair) and still feeling love for the other man. Meanwhile, Josh was convinced by God that divorce was wrong and he needed to love Katie as Christ loves the Church, which meant pushing through the pain and hoping against hope to rescue his marriage.

LOVE the principle discussed in this episode about individuals being able to accept the gospel after death! I have a testimony that it is true! 1 Corinthians 15:29 demonstrates this truth. They acted out baptisms for the dead to enable those who had passed to be forgiven of their sins. In addition, we learn that these are the people Christ ministered to between the time of His death and resurrection (see 1Peter 3:18-20). Truly a wonderful episode!

muslim here, love this podcast.. something we share n value most in life after god: FAMILY. ..i found some refreshing perspectives on handling family matters.. we r all unique n cuz god made us so..tho in my community i always hear of parents pushing kids to be a carbon copy of self n end up in bad relationship n cant understand y. n repeat over n over which is defination of insanity i feel we must acknowledge our kids may be different. Sooner we realize the better..n we need to apply ourselves n adjust approach n not giv them 1 size fit all approach. all this is possible if parents value their kids as God's beings as oppose to their own property, they r indeed a blessing from god n a big responsibility on parents' shoulders..this responsibility we should fulfill, inshallah(God willing). thank you for great material.

I learned two important things. God doesn't want us to settle in our marriage. each spouse brings their own unique way to teach and bring Christ to our family. if you try to control the other you lose the potential of their creativity.

I doubt anyone's going to read this who needs it, but as a 16 year old who has been addicted to my phone, I agree with everything that they've said in this episode, but regarding the timers on how long someone can be on their phone, I think that it's perfectly fine, but it won't solve the root problem, but there's obviously nothing wrong with doing it.

this is so encouraging to me, as a highschooler I have felt called to reach out to lgtbq communities in my school, and alot of times it seems like they'll never find Christ, but hearing the testimony of a woman who was an active lesbian, who now follows Jesus, gives me a new hope for them. Thank you.
