Is There a Difference Between Lust and Normal Sexual Desire?

Episode 657 Show Notes 

From the Show

Sometimes people have a taboo view of sex in the Christian life; as if it is bad or icky. But the Bible doesn’t speak about sex this way. It is a gift that God gave to his people to be enjoyed in a particular context. Lust takes those good and natural desires and twists them.
