    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.

    Beyond the Standard—Healthy Church?

    in Christianity

    In the January issue of Christian Standard, more than a dozen church leaders give their prescription for making your church healthy. In this special episode, we talk with three of them.



    Nate Bush, lead pastor with New City Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, wrote, A Healthy Church Helps Make a Healthy Community.
    Jeff Faull, minister with Mount Gilead Church in Mooresville, Indiana, wrote, A Healthy Church Is Doctrinally Strong.
    Joe Putting, senior pastor with Tomoka Christian Church, Ormond Beach, Florida, wrote, A Healthy Church Is a Giving Church.


    Read their pieces in Christian Standard (here’s how to download it today: http://christianstandard.com/subscribe/digital-subscriptions/). Then plan to join our conversation. Each of these fellows has more to say than print space allowed. And we’ll talk with all of them about more than their assigned topic!


    We’re looking forward to a rich discussion about earmarks of a healthy church.

    Welcome back Sim gamers, we have another great show lined up for tonight. Listed below is a brief description of the topics we will cover tonight. 


    Are sim gamers really ready for a simulation game? We have seen a lot of complaints about sim aspects in Madden, how will you feel when things like bobbled snaps are in the game.


    Is there any real value of games that are out of print such as All Pro Football 2K8 and NCAA 14? Do you take the time to go back and play them often?


    How do you feel about Deflate Gate? How does that make you feel about the Patriots? Does that take away from what they have done the last 10 years? 


    Another mini video has surfaced from what we assume will be Joe Montana 16. Are you tired of waiting for concrete information about the game?


    In the 2nd hour we will open up the line for callers. We look forward to your questions and comments. Thanks for listening!
