Much of the impotence of American churches is tied to a profound ignorance and apathy about justification. Our people live in a fog of guilt. Or just as bad, they think being a better person is all God requires.
Most people's lives are nothing more than pointlessly frantic activity used as a psychological defense against their own impotence and fear.
Impotence, fetishism, bisexuality, and bondage are all facts of life, and our fiction should reflect that.
People can and do change.
