There are times one's religious experience when one experiences moments of doubt or even unbelief. For some some those moments lead to a deeper and more meaningful religious experience and life. For others, it leads to declarations of total renunciation of their faith. For author Cheryl Abram, it was a life changing experience that helped her discover her humanity and fire her God fallacy. In her book, "Firing God" Cheryl discusses how life became the fuse that lead to her spiritual awakening without the guise of religion she had grown up in. Join Pastor Neal and Cheryl for a great discussion on her journey.
The ICE men continue their month of October theme--at the spooky, the scary, and the hidden things Christians believe or don't believe in--by taking a good look at demons. Who are they, what are they, what do they do, and how do they operate against believers and nonbelievers? The goal of ICE Ministries: to bring the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ--, through ministry and apologetics-- to the men of the inner city in their own language; thus empowering them to take that gospel to their women, their children, and their neighborhood. Motto: I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 1st Corinthians 9:22b The men's prayer and devotional line is open Monday through Friday after the show.

Greg Laurie said, "We shouldn't get caught up in the things that dominate the minds and hearts of nonbelievers, such as what we will eat, drink, and wear. Instead, we should be consumed with our pursuit of the kingdom of God. We should seek, above all, the rule and reign of Jesus Christ in our lives."
This is Daniel Whyte III with Just Jesus, a podcast designed to celebrate the birth, life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and second coming of Jesus Christ, the impact He has on the world, and the salvation He offers for all people. This is episode #320. The aim of this podcast is to encourage you to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to begin to live your life according to His Word.
Our Just Jesus passage from the Word of God today is John 8:12 which reads: "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the Light of the world; he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
Our featured Just Jesus quote today is from Charles Stanley. He said, "The Father wants us excited and hopeful about Jesus’ return because that event is the conclusion of His plan for the world. For centuries, Christians have worked to spread the Gospel. Those efforts are leading to the moment when all those who choose to serve God are gathered together on a new Earth. To keep our hope alive, He has told us what to expect. We don’t know the day or the hour of the Second Coming. But Jesus Christ’s final biblical prophecy reminds us to live and evangelize with a sense of urgency. He said in Revelation 22:20, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” If we are saved and serving God, we can say - as the apostle John did in that same verse - ”Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.’”
TEXT: 1 John 5:18-21
End times prophecy can be roughly divided into two phases: (1) God's dealings with Israel, and (2) God's dealings with the Gentile nations. As you will recall, we went through a long series titled "Israel and the End Times" in which we discussed God's plans for His chosen people. Now, we are in a series titled "God's Plan for the Gentile Nations." It is a long series that is divided into several smaller series. The first mini-series was "The Times of the Nations." And, we are now in the second mini-series titled "The Ruler of the Nations."
We know from Scripture that, in the end times, the ruler of the nations will be a man known as the antichrist. However, as we saw in previous messages, the spirit of antichrist is in the world today. Why? Because the spirit of antichrist is the spirit of Satan who opposes God and His Son, Jesus Christ. We have looked at the spirit of antichrist in the church, and now, today, we will begin looking at the spirit of antichrist in the world.
As he closes out his first letter to believers, the Apostle John, who coined the term "antichrist", tells us about the spirit of antichrist in the world by contrasting the believers who are in Christ with the nonbelievers who are in the world. In verse 19, he says, "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." He is saying that there is a difference between us and the world. We are not the same because the world "lies in wickedness." Other translations of this verse help to paint this picture vividly. One says, "the world around us is under the control of the evil one." Another says, "the whole world lies in the evil one." Another says, "the whole world is under the sway of the evil one."
Please join us Sunday at 10AM CST as we discuss a number of issues that we face on a daily basis.
What do you do when the people you want to help don't realize that time is of the essence?
What do you say to the people who have experienced a pain that you will never fully understand?
How do you show love to someone who doesn't know what love is and you aren't quite sure what it is either?
What do you say to people who shamelessly exploit and manipulate others to further their agenda? Do you ignore it and watch the inevitable trainwreck? Do you speak out to warn others when you know that they will put all of the blame on the messenger?
How do you want the best for someone who stopped caring and trying?

Please join us Sunday, 10AM CST as we discuss the history of the N-Word.
White people insisting on using the n-word is another hot topic that needs to be discussed.
Black lives still matter and we will discuss this and more.
Additionally, we will discuss white folks passing for black. This has gone way too far. Appropriation on a new level.
Also, how Humanists help to foster economic injustice and is the atheist movement a cover for white supremacy and libertarianism.

Show Notes: A very special thanks to Mandisa Thomas from blacknonbelievers.org [The rant from the beginning of the episode was borrowed from: The Persecution Of Atheists In America]
Please join us Sunday at 10AM CST as we discuss the high cost of being poor. The protests across America has brought to light how Blacks, Native Americans, and Latinos are unfairly targeted with broken windows policing. This creates a system that is sustained by fines and fees that perpetuates white supremacy.

The History of Black Americans and the Black Church #14
Our Scripture verse for today is 1 Peter 2:9-10 which reads: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy."
Our History of Black Americans and the Black Church quote for today is from Lee June, a professor at Michigan State University and the author of the book, "Yet With A Steady Beat: The Black Church through a Psychological and Biblical Lens." He said, "Within the Black community and the 'Black Church' the person who is a pastor is often more revered for preaching than for pastoring. As noted by Hamilton, preaching is one of the qualities that is most desirable and reinforced. I believe that this overemphasis on preaching has often led many pastors to neglect the 'shepherding' and leadership aspects of their roles. An additional widespread belief about preaching is that it is an activity to be geared toward believers and within a church setting. Speaking in contrast to this belief, Douglas in The New Bible Dictionary indicated that preaching in the early church was an activity geared toward nonbelievers."
Our first topic for today is a continuation of our look at the earliest African states from the book, "From Slavery to Freedom" by John Hope Franklin. We are going to look at the Hausa states.
The Afno, or Hausa, people are said to have had seven original states, the best known of which were Kano, Zaria, and Katsina. The Hausa states occupied roughly the area that today is northern Nigeria. Each kingdom retained its identity, with Kano emerging into the limelight for a while, then yielding to Katsina, and so on...
Please join us Sunday 10AM CST as we discuss respectability politics, gender politics, tone policing, oppressive & respressive politics and much more. We will also discuss CPAC atheists and political grandstanding.
