Hour 1: Welcome to Friday!

You’re invited to today’s edition of Open Phones. We started the week with the question ‘Do Jews need Jesus?’ addressing common misconceptions that exist in today’s culture. Then, we had a timely conversation on whether or not Christians are intolerant and homophobic from a Biblical perspective. On Wednesday we discussed how some Churches are focusing less on Jewish evangelism which has created a difficult conundrum for Messianic believers. Finally, we wrapped up the week taking an in depth look at some key First Amendment cases facing our nation today. How did you react? Call us and share!


Hour 2: It's Your Turn to Respond

Today we take a look at the events of the week. We began the week offering reasons as to why Christians must support the nation of Israel. Then, we learned about a powerful new documentary that highlights the plight of persecuted Christians in the Middle East and received an update on the persecuted Church. Midweek, we addressed female mutilation and what is being done stateside to eradicate this horrific procedure as well as brought to light yet another move towards implementing euthanasia in Belgium. Finally, we learned six simple steps to replace painful memories in our lives with biblical hope. Join us with your thoughts as we review the week.
