First Assembly NLR Audio Podcast
Weekend messages from Pastor Rod Loy and FirstNLR.
On life's highway, the road isn't always smooth. We make some wrong turns, and occasionally lose our way. In this series, Rod Loy uses highway signs as memory helpers - so every time you see a road sign, you'll recall some truths about our journey through life. In this first message, he discusses the most common sign of all - Stop. With God's help, we can stop things that lead us down the wrong roads.

In this message, Rod Loy looks at the idea while life isn't fair, maybe that's a good thing.

When we mess up, whether it is little or big, we have a tendency to do whatever we can to cover it up.  Confession is the furthest thing from our minds.  After all, we got away with it.  No one will ever know.

But inevitably, something happens, and we get caught.

What happens when we try to cover up our mistakes?  Rod Loy takes a final look at the story of David and Bathsheba.

When you've realized you've messed up, you've blown it -- you have a decision to make. You can confess, or you can conceal.  You can tell on yourself, or you can cover it up.  What happens when you try to cover things up?  What if you think you've gotten away with it?  Will anyone ever know?

It makes people uncomfortable, but the church has been silent way too long--it's important for Christians to talk about sex and sexual sin.  We cannot allow culture to shape our beliefs in this area.  In the first message of this series, Rod Loy looks at the stranglehold that pornography has on many people in our society, our homes, and yes, even our churches.
