What do a bikini and spandex pants have to do with God’s Word?
Less than ten years ago I began the most difficult journey of my life. In God’s perfect timing, He surfaced repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse. Pain and confusion shackled me. I had been an active Christian for seventeen years, but now I faced an immense test: In the face of such pain, would I still believe in an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God?
If you struggle with this sin, know for certain that there is hope for you, hope for real change. Do not seek reassurance in the cold comfort that “everyone does it.” The way to avoid the agony of guilt is not to ignore sin or make some vain effort to convince yourself it’s innocuous. The solution to guilt is to focus on the finished work of Christ on the cross.
