  • Challenge the Demonization Christians

    March 26th, 2021  |  23 mins 38 secs

    The Biblical, moral view of life is being completely pushed out of our culture. If we allow the demonization of Christians to go unchallenged, the ability to disagree with civility, and freedom of speech and conscience is dead.

    Today's culture tells us that it's acceptable, to covet, cheat, and take innocent life. How can Christians face this disaster? And do we have any power to overcome it? We need something much more than just optimism or wishful thinking.

  • You Can't Muzzle the Truth

    February 18th, 2021  |  23 mins 17 secs

    Our society glorifies immoral behavior and tears down any who try to uphold traditional Christian morals. But no power can muzzle the truth of God's word: not the government, not the president, not Google, Facebook or Twitter.

  • Victimization Mentality

    February 11th, 2021  |  22 mins 58 secs

    The victim mindset is incredibly harmful and destructive and is the opposite of how God wants us to see ourselves! How can we take ownership of our life and fight the lie of victimhood with the truth of our victory in Christ?

  • A Presidential Assault on our Daughters

    February 4th, 2021  |  19 mins 49 secs

    The first day he was in office, Biden signed an executive order that claims to prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation, but what it really does is discriminate against biological females. Title IX protections, meant to honor and protect girls are gone. Our girls' dignity is at stake. We're sacrificing them for the sake of another struggle and that, ethically, is wrong. Rather than give them the message that they matter, we're delivering the message that they are less-than.

  • Protecting the Sanctity of Life

    January 27th, 2021  |  25 mins 21 secs

    The Pro-Life movement is not just "Anti-Aobrtion," but spreads the beautiful message that life is sacred. It is God's first gift to every person. It stands to protect our right to live that sacred life each day to its fullest. Dignity and the sanctity of life are fundamental, foundational truths to a civil society.

  • Family Estrangement

    What causes estrangement between parents and children? And what are the effects of estrangement on our society? Can we find healing and reconciliation?

  • Education: Manipulating the Future Minds of America

    January 14th, 2021  |  23 mins 30 secs

    The country of tomorrow is being taught in the classroom today. We need to understand that there are people who want to tear our children away from what is Biblically right, wholesome, virtuous, and instill in them some radical view of what it means to be a human being today. We can not let that happen. The consequences are too great. Our kids are too precious to leave them to this fate.

  • The Power of The First Thing

    January 8th, 2021  |  25 mins 18 secs

    Are Christians out of step with what's going on in the world? Or do we view things from a different perspective? We know that what's happening now is temporary and that God can and will use it for eternal good. How do we respond to what's going on in the world with love, truth AND grace?

  • The Blessing of Reflecting on the Past Year

    December 31st, 2020  |  29 mins 39 secs

    There's no doubt we'd all like 2021 to bring some normalcy and hope back to our lives. Is there anything to be gained by reflecting on the past year? For many of us, reflecting on 2020 makes us feel frustrated, powerless, and overwhelmed with disappointments. What if you don't have the energy or strength to look back, let alone look forward? Sometimes God allows our strength to be completely depleted so that we will rely on HIS strength. In this week's episode, Greg and Marie show you how to turn our reflections on last year into a blessing for the new year.

  • Technology and Your Children

    family values, social media, technology

    God calls us to love our neighbors. This means we are to live in community and be in relationship with the people around us. When smart-phones distract us from forming and cultivating relationships, they not only hinder us from fulfilling God's call on our lives but also encourage inward, self-focus. When we expose our children to this technology, we may think we're giving them access to information and entertainment, but we also set them up to be distracted from the beautiful world that God created for us to enjoy.

  • The Silencing of Christian Parents

    censorship, family values, gender

    As parents, it's our responsibility to advocate for our children. But when the culture censors the church and Christian parents, we are stripped of our parental right to equip our children to know right from wrong. - Do not let your voice be silenced! Do NOT leave your kids vulnerable to the lies of this world.

  • Thankful Living

    family, thanksgiving

    "Be thankful for what you have." -- Most of us have heard this familiar phrase from a well-meaning friend at some point. The problem with this advice is that it turns our attention inward, toward our possessions. This kind of self-focus is thankless by nature. When Christ is the source of our joy, we can live our lives for others. Our joy increases, and worry, fear, and doubt decrease.

  • Election Chaos

    2020 presidential election, christian worldview, christians and politics

    The 2020 presidential election has been one of the strangest in history. Would Christians be shocked to know that their religious liberties were the main item on the ballot? In a culture that is more and more aggressively antagonistic to the Christian worldview, how can we be prepared to defend our voice?
