Ep.532: Did You Stop Long Enough to Really Give Thanks?
True thanksgiving on Thanksgiving
Theme Scripture: Psalms 100:3-4
So, did you overeat this past Thursday? It was great to have the day off, wasn’t it? Did you watch a lot of football? How about Friday - did you get that day off as well? Did you get out there and shop shop shop? Are you now focused on preparations for Christmas? Is your tree up yet? How about cards, decorations and guest lists? Is everything on schedule? Wow! If we didn’t know better, we would have passed off this past Thursday as just another day off. In actuality, it was Thanksgiving, a holiday set in place to stop andthank God for His overruling on our behalf. This program looks at Thanksgiving for its true meaning. Try and STOP so we can continue to live the ʺattitude of gratitude!ʺ
Ep.531: Are There Really Seven Deadly Sins?
Discussing the “list” as just a list
Theme Scripture: Isaiah 3:10-11
At some point or other, you have probably heard of “The Seven Deadly Sins.” Well, do you know what they are? Better yet, do you know where the list comes from? Even though the list is not directly from the Bible, it still is a list that serves the purpose of alerting us to the breadth and dangers of sin and helps us to fight the battle with a little more determination. The seven deadly sins...we will list them, define them, discuss them and then RUN AWAY FROM THEM! Stay with us as we take this journey!
Ep.530: What Does it Mean to “Turn the Other Cheek?”
Clarifying Christian humility
Theme Scripture: Matthew 5:39
We are all sensitive about our rights. When someone does us wrong, we want to at least “even the score” or give back a little extra as a reminder to not mess with us. Funny thing about that attitude of retaliation is it is not just a modern day attitude. It is an attitude that has prevailed throughout the centuries. Jesus saw that attitude in his day and taught lessons on how to overcome it in ourselves, as we deal with the world around us. Stay with us as we look into Jesus’ teachings about “turning the other cheek” and what it means in a practical sense today.
Ep.529: So, What About Abortion?
A hard look at the abortion process and consequence
Theme Scripture: Psalms 139:14
In America, we, according to our founding fathers, cherish “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.ʺ Now over the last 230+ years, we as Americans have defined and redefined these things to fit our perspectives. As we cherish life our defining of life has become a major and dividing issue. When does life begin? When should life be protected? Do the rights of a woman override the right to life of an unborn child? Yes, on this program we are going to take some time and examine that difficult, emotional and ever divisive question of abortion. This is not an easy question and one that we here at Christian Questions don’t love talking about, yet we are compelled to put it on the table from a respectful and biblical perspective. So, what about abortion? Let’s talk…
Ep.528: Who Will be Elected?
The true church's election vs. presidential election
Theme Scripture: 2 Peter 1:10
In just two days, America will go to the polls to decide the next President of the United States. This election has been a hard fought, divisive, nasty and important battle, for the next Commander-in-Chief will inherit massive power, massive opportunity and massive problems in almost every area of governance. Comparing the ideology and background of the two candidates is like comparing night and day – the big debate is deciding who represents night and who represents day! Who will win? Is this the most important election of our time or could there possibly be another election happening whose results will have a much more profound effect on our world now and in the future? Stay with us as we delve NOT into politics, but into the greatest and most important election the world has ever seen…
