SORT BY Relevancy
The Bible says in Revelation 20:13-14: "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
The featured quote for this episode is from J.C. Ryle. He said, "The whole extent of hell, the present suffering, the bitter recollection of the past, the hopeless prospect of the future, will never be thoroughly known except by those who go there."
Our topic for today is "The Literal View of Hell (Part 1)" from Dr. John Walvoord.
PROBLEMS IN THE CONCEPT OF ETERNAL PUNISHMENT
Most Christians have natural problems with the concept of eternal punishment. In their study of Scripture they have been instructed from the pulpit on a loving Savior who died on the cross for our sins, rose again, and provides grace and forgiveness for all who put their trust in him. Many Christians will hear hundreds of sermons on this theme in their lifetime. On the contrary, they will probably never hear a sermon on hell, though they may hear some allusions to it from time to time. Almost immediately problems arise. What about those who live and die without ever hearing the gospel? Are they doomed to eternal punishment? Is a religious Jew or a religious Muslim who carefully follows his religion doomed to eternal punishment? How can one harmonize the concept of a loving, gracious God with a God who is righteous and unforgiving? These are very real problems that naturally call for solution.

Thursday November 5, 2015 @ 9PM CST… Theme of the week: “Faithfulness In Christ”: Man is generally faithless to any standard that can be considered as truly godly. In II Timothy 3:1-5, the apostle Paul describes the spirit of people at the end of the age: It reads: But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! Tune in for Shout for Victory. 347-237-4648 or www.shoutforvictory.org
Aviation is not itself inherently dangerous. However, manned flight is extremely unforgiving of any negligence, error, or shortcomming in preparation. Even before the Wright brothers flew their first heavier than air plane early in the 20th century, people hade lost their lives trying to rise above the earth and fly with the birds. And over the centuries, there has been a public fascination with flights that ended fatally, tragically, or mysteriously. Public interest in these "Flights of No Return," has always been high, along with the aircraft and people involved. Some, like Amelia Erhardt, the Challenger Disaster, and MH370 are well known and still resonate with people across the world. Others are more obscure, but no less interesting and intriguing to those who are aviation enthusiasts.

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people."(2 Timothy 3:1-5

Author and Christian Communicators speaker, Laurie Coombs tells shocking and inspirational story of corresponding with her father’s murderer and her journey of forgiving the unforgivable with Christ at her side.

She went from doctor to doctor, desperately seeking relief for the physical, mental and emotional symptoms of anxiety and depression. Hear how Laurie brought down the invisible bars through applying Christ’s ways of true forgiveness for her father’s murder.
Her story is an inspiration of hope for those of us who have locked ourselves behind bars of bitterness, anger, and an unforgiving heart. Learn more about how Jesus walked with Laurie to freedom through unimaginable forgiveness.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
On today's show we discuss Estate Planning with Pamela Donison of Donison Law Firm. While many people have an inherent aversion to talking about both death and taxes, leaving a positive legacy is something we all care about. Unfortunately, numerous studies show that over 50% of Americans have no estate plan, no will and no medical directives.The tragedy of failing to properly plan is not visited upon the dead. It is the living that suffer its unexpected and unforgiving consequences. By failing to properly plan, many of us are creating problems for our loved ones that do not exist. Estate planning sounds as if it is for the über-wealthy when in fact it applies to everyone.

Bitterness and Resentment
CBN.com – When you are offended or disappointed by others and allow the hurt to germinate in your heart, bitterness and resentment will take root. Characterized by an unforgiving spirit and generally negative, critical attitudes, bitterness and resentment are sinful and self-defeating. They will color your conscious and unconscious thoughts and actions. Allowed to fester, they will destroy and kill (Galatians 5:19-21). However, they can be dispelled with love
