Is America Losing Its Christian Principles?

On July 4 we celebrate Independence Day, a day that for over 200 years has symbolized all that is good about these United States of America. How did the United States become such a modern day beacon of freedom over the last several hundred years? Is this country still the same beacon of the same freedom or has something changed?

Does the Bible Advocate for Women’s Rights?

Today is Mother’s Day, a day to stop, think about and honor the role that motherhood plays in our lives. Be sure to express your gratitude to the mothers in your lives! Now, on this day that we honor motherhood we also want to look into the Bible’s treatment of womanhood. It sure seems like the Scriptures make women second class citizens. Is this true? Does the Bible in any way advocate for women?

Does the Bible Support Racism? (Part II)

A few weeks ago we began a conversation about racism and its origins. We talked about the mythical “Curse of Ham” which led to a mythical subduing of the black race. All of that said, we also looked at some history and effects of racism over the last 1500 years and asked plainly, does God show any kind of a racist approach to humanity? This week we want to continue looking at this difficult and sensitive subject through the lens of scriptural understanding and truth.

Has the Marriage Institution Lost Its Luster?

Love, marriage, tradition and happiness. As time goes on, these four timeless elements of our world seem to be drifting ever further apart from each other. It is almost as if we are at a point where we are not really sure what to believe in or how to believe in it. Well, stay with us because on this program, we are going to look at the tradition – the godly institution of marriage as a proven vehicle that carries with it love and happiness…love and happiness! Isn’t that what we all want?

Did Jesus Die For Atheists?

Atheism – for many of us who profess Christianity, even hearing the word conjures up a need to defend oneself and one’s faith. Sometimes we envision an Atheist as one whose objective in life is to ridicule not only us but the mechanism of our faith. And not just the mechanism of our faith, but the very object of our faith – God Almighty. So what do we have? We have envisioned Atheism as an enemy – as an object of our disdain…but wait a minute – Jesus clearly taught us to love our enemies, so what does that mean? Did Jesus himself love those who profess Atheism – did Jesus die for Atheists? If so, then how should we show them the love of Christ?

What Do “Selfies” Say About Us?

“Selfies” – a modern day phenomena of simplicity and ease. The concept is simple – take pictures of yourself so the world can see you as you choose for it to see you. What could be wrong with that? After all, it is your life and you should have control over it, right? As with any luxury of life, there is usually a basic thread of goodness somewhere within it, but as with any luxury in life that thread of goodness can and usually is overrun by excess and pride. Do “selfies” represent this excess and pride and if so, how do we reset ourselves back to a clearer reality? Stay with us and find out!!
