Disciples After Dark: Aunt Wendy and the Worldly Sex

Posted January 27th, 2017

What happens when parody meets smackdown?  This.

Matt and Kristin and Glenn (and a special guest or two) take some time to delicately mock and smackdown the Jan 8 2017 World Wide Devotional for Young Adults.  Because the devil wants to ruin you all with empty lust-filled worldly sex (but thinking that everyone else in the entire world is being deceived by Satan and you and your fellow church members are the only righteous people chosen of God is totally fine.  In fact it is encouraged.)

And a previously recorded Jake and Heather join in for a nice recycled song.
