On this episode of the Innocence Redeemed Podcast, I will be talking about subjects causing divisions in marriages and examples elsewhere. I will also be tying in how these are snares tempting us into sin and that sometimes letting go and giving these problems to the Lord is the best thing to do depending on the situation so that we are not led into temptations of anger, bitterness or unforgiveness. I will also be setting some facts straight to alleviate some apparent confusion.
