Have you ever been told, “Just follow your heart?” How about this: “God won’t give you more than you can handle?” Thursday on Chris Fabry Live, these are two examples of things Pastor Shane Pruitt says are lies Christians believe. Are they really not true? Why do we buy into these statements? And what’s the antidote to Christian clichés that are anti-biblical?
Shane Pruitt and his wife, Kasi, live near Dallas, Texas, with their five children. Shane has been in ministry for more than 17 years as a denominational leader, church planter, and traveling communicator. He holds a B.S. in biblical studies and a Ph.D. in Christian counseling. Shane serves as Director of Evangelism for the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. A popular blogger, Shane has written for Relevant, Christianity Today, the Christian Post, ChurchLeaders.com and other online journals.
Chris Fabry is the host of Chris Fabry Live, one hour of spiritual encouragement from his backyard radio fence. The program challenges listeners to think biblically about their spiritual journeys. Chris is also the author of the Christy Award-winning novel Dogwood, June Bug, ECPA Christian Book Award-winner (Fiction) Almost Heaven, Not in the Heart and Borders of the Heart. He and his family live near Tucson, Ariz.
Chris Fabry Live is designed to build up the spiritual immune system of the Christian men and woman. As you walk through the journey of faith called the Christian life, you meet new people, learn new things, laugh, cry and, most importantly, grow in your understanding of God. With his sense of humor, sense of people and no sense of direction, host Chris Fabry treks that journey with you each weekday. Current events and issues, caller interaction, special guests and a few surprises all complement each other on this program. Chris Fabry Live challenges and encourages listeners in their journeys of faith.
