    Beyond the Standard—Apologetics Is Different Now!

    in Christianity

    Sharing Christ with non-Christians in America may be more difficult than ever.

    One thing's for sure: our approach certainly must change if we’re to have any success pointing nonbelievers to the truth.

    Three Christian leaders grapple with this issue in this episode of Beyond the Standard.

    Ben Cachiaras, senior minister with Mountain Christian Church, Joppa, Maryland, says Christians in America should compare themselves with the Old Testament Jews in Babylonian exile. How can we think differently about ourselves and our mission, now that we live in a foreign and hostile culture?

    Casey Tygrett, spiritual formation pastor at Parkview Christian Church, Orland Park, Illinois, says we need to do more listening and less talking. What can we learn and how can we influence by letting the nonbeliever talk first and most?

    Richard Knopp, professor of philosophy and Christian apologetics at Lincoln (Illinois) Christian University, helps us understand the purpose of apologetics. It’s way more than just sitting around waiting for someone to attack the faith so we can defend it.

    God and the Constitution

    in Education

    SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist

    "The United States is a Christian nation!"

    We hear this charge quite often, usually accompanied by references to the Ten Commandments in government courthouses, references to God in the pledge of allegiance and on American currency, and most recently, in the ruling by the Supreme Court that government meetings can open with Christian prayers.

    In this podcast, we speak with David Niose, author of "Nonbeliever Nation," Amanda Knief, constitutional expert and author of "The Citizen Lobbyist,"  and Kelly Damerow, director of federal and state affairs at the Secular Coalition for America.

Here is the Author of Nonbeliever Nation: The Rise of the Secular Americans.  He is working to form a new group of Americans to challenge the reign of the Religious right by emphasizing the importance of utilizing mass media to inject humanist ideas into the public dialogue, improve the public image of humanist and sway public opinion of the religious right.

    Award-Winning Artist Carl Childs will show you evidence of God in Geese!  We have a lot to talk about and plenty of video to share!  Radio Judy  was sent this video to encourage her to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Ghost, HE is the SPIRIT of TRUTH & the COMFORTER!  The relationship that we have with GOD is the most important relationship. God also holds us all accountable of how we treat each other.  We have to love one another, forgive one another, respect and show kindness & mercy as Jesus told us to do. Every moment of everyday is an opportunity to turn to GOD and repent. God will forgive you if you are sincere. Get forgiveness from GOD and it restores you back into GOD's Will! We are praying for family restoration, deliverance and anyone that is a backslider or nonbeliever to hear GOD's voice and join GOD'S Family by accepting JESUS CHRIST!  Accept JESUS CHRIST AS LORD  SAVIOR AND HEAD OF YOUR LIFE.  ACCEPT THE FREE GIFT THAT IS OFFERED TO YOU BY GOD THROUGH HIS SON JESUS! GIFTS AMPLIFIED TOGETHER FOR EXCELLENCE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO EVERYONE OF OUR MARCH BIRTHDAYS!

    Faith and What you see!

    in Lifestyle

    We want to welcome you to another show. This week we are still trying to get you to think outside of the box regarding your faith, and what you believe as true regarding God's word. Our show ran a little long last week as we pushed the envelope a little in giving you explanations of faith Vs belief from several different view points.  We took examples from a movie star, people of faith, preachers, and even some of the new age people.  The reason is to get you to think on this subject and get some personal understanding of how to apply these things to real life.  We do not live in the bible but as believers we understand that it is our GPS to pleasing God. To help you expand your answer we are also bringing you a sermon preached regarding the difference in faith and what you see by W.E. Gamblin.  You will find that he is an old time preacher in how he presents his message.  As alwasy we look forward to your comments or questions at the end of the show.
