God grows our faith and our love through trials.   In fact, these become some of the best opportunities in which to manifest love.  When a major trial like cancer hits, immediately God provides a wonderful field in which love may begin to function in the family and the church.  Marisa Henley, a survivor of a rare form of cancer, explains how to love your friend through cancer, based on her recent book.

The Battleground of the Christian College - Evangelical Crisis Shows in Colleges - Tuesday, December 11, 2018

The evangelical crisis is showing itself in the American evangelical college - and Azusa Pacificis the battleground.  Two board members have resigned pointing to a faith retrograde at the college. And, what is the most dangerous department in the Christian College? It is always the Theology Department, of course. The major attack however is centered around feminism, social justice, and sexual ethics.  But why?  Is the CCCU turning into the “Craven & Crawling Colleges and Universities?”  Is the compromise with Sodom a fatal synthesis?

For her moment of truth, when she was questioned on the watershed idolatrous issue of the day. . .she blinked, she faltered, she tripped, and fell.

President George H.W. Bush, R.I.P? - Pro-Homosexual Marriage in 2015 - Thursday, December 6, 2018

President George H.W. Bush has died, and his last words were. . . Heaven. . ."That is where I want to go.”   President George H.W. Bush left a legacy of Planned Parenthood Title X funding, and support for homosexual marriage.  He increased funding for Planned Parenthood and Title X funding during his presidency after President Reagan decreased it.  Then, he moved towards supporting  homosexual marriage in 2013, serving as an official signatory for two lesbians in Maine. Repentance doesn’t look like this.  Do you want to go to heaven?  What are the requisites?  We discuss faith and repentance, and a "living hope" for heaven --  a message for all of us on this edition of the program.

The Self-Orientation Worldview - The Danger of Romantic Love - Tuesday, December 4, 2018

“Love me tender. Love me true. Make all my dreams come true.” What happens to young kids who are absorbed in romantic love and the popular media that promotes a self-oriented romanticism? Worldviews matter when it comes to the music our children listen to, and so much of the music is tied into a self-orientation. The Greatest Love of All is not self-love, but a love for God. We study the worldviews of big music hits on this edition of the program.

Should Christians Coddle Sin? - Relatives Openly Sinning in Your Home - Monday, December 3, 2018

Your nephew wants to come over for Christmas dinner. . . only trouble is, he wants to come dressed up as a girl. An uncle wants to sleep over with his girlfriend or boyfriend in your house. . . but that’s okay because he just brought 20 gifts for the kids, and he’s quickly becoming their favorite uncle. How do Christians interact with the world without rendering approval for the sinful behavior going on? Christians give a pat answer, “You just gotta love everybody.” But, what does this mean? The more difficult question is: “How do you love them?”

Kids Playing Cowboys and Indians? - Thinking Clearly on Cultural Tiffs - Friday, November 30, 2018

The world explodes over cultural appropriations and misappropriations. Actor and comedian, Kevin Hart is in trouble when he threw a Cowboys and Indians party for his son. Should our boys be playing Cowboys and Indians these days? Do we as Christians get fixated on cultural expressions, as the world does? What cultural expressions might we use from pagan cultures, and which ones might we avoid? How might we help our sons to understand good and evil, and the good guys and the bad guys in their play battles? Play battles can be a great way to teach, but what do we teach our kids?

Harry Potter - Post Christian Zeitgeist - Should Our Kids Read the Books? - Thursday, November 29, 2018

Harry Potter is the biggest pop-cultural phenomenon in the post-Christian zeitgeist today. The tenth movie in the franchise raked in $400 million last week at the box office. After reading the eighteenth encouragement from Christian reformed/classical/literary enthusiasts to embrace Harry Potter, Kevin Swanson finally reads the book and watches a Harry Potter film. Shall we encourage our eight-year-olds into this fantasy genre? Or would this sign us up for the Matthew 18:6 treatment? Here is a careful analysis of the Harry Potter worldview in this parallel universe of autonomy.
