Title: Say Goodbye to Stubborn Sin

Subtitle: A surgeon explains the physiological factors that trigger it

Author: Clark Gerhart, MD, with Jefferson Scott

Victory over the flesh is within your grasp!

You love the Lord-so why can’t you gain lasting victory over that one recurring sin? You’ve prayed for help and tried everybody’s 10-point plan, but you find yourself back on your knees, asking God to forgive you for doing the thing you said you’d never do again. Are you going to live with this misery until you die?

No! says Christian physician Clark Gerhart. In this fascinating new take on the fleshly nature, Dr. Gerhart explains what lies behind strongholds and how sin uses the body’s God-given systems to urge you to continue in these behaviors. He then shows how God’s work of sanctification can lead you into victory and peace. If you have ever longed to live the pure, Christian life, this message will help you:

  • Understand the surprising link between stubborn sin and your body’s processes
  • Discover the common root of every recurring sin, and what to do about it
  • Identify repeated patterns of behavior in your life as signs of fleshly control
  • Grasp how even good things-like serving in church-can become fleshly addictions
  • Learn the simple process that brings God’s cleansing power

No longer will you be a slave to the pressure that drives you to the old disobedience. No longer will the flesh keep you in wretched defeat. Once you are free of the sin that so easily entangles, you’ll even be equipped to minister to those around you. Finally, you can be free forever!

Take a look at some of the topics covered in the book...

Understanding The Flesh - It’s not “The little old man inside”
The flesh is not something vague and mystical as you might have been taught. It is you through and through. In this general intro to the topic we talk about the symptoms that occur when the flesh controls you, describe the illness in the flesh, and give a general outline for dealing with the flesh. This discussion is good for those involved in counseling or desiring further study on the topic of the flesh, or as an introduction for later topics when used together in a seminar.

Drives - Fleshly Drivenness
Like animal instincts, humans have drives that the flesh uses to control us. Did you know you have a thermostat in your body that has settings for all of the things you need in life like love, sex, and self esteem to name a few? When the low setting is triggered you are driven to get more. Sin has distorted those settings so we discuss how to get them set back to God’s normal levels.


Senses - Living Just to Stimulate Your Receptors
Everything you experience in the world begins with a sensory input. Your flesh craves sensation and the result is you become addicted to all sorts of stimulations. Chemical dependence is only one of the ways your flesh’s love for sensation will keep you in bondage. Here we’ll identify where you are addicted and find ways to set your free.


Emotions - The Chemistry Behind Your Feelings
Emotions are another area we often think are so elusive that they must somehow be non-physical but we will see how predictable and programmed in your flesh they are and how the flesh controls them. We look at how your flesh may recycle your emotions to build their intensity and tighten their control of you. We also discuss getting rid of those emotional buttons that people like to push in you.


Conscious Thought - Rational Thinking and the Will
Have you ever tried to beat your chronic problem with will power? Didn’t work very well did it? We will see what power the will does have and how it must give up it’s position of sovereignty in the flesh to let God’s work of sanctification flow.
