This hour we take a look at some of the stories making headlines before getting an update on a wonderful ministry that beams the Gospel into Iran 24/7. Why are so many coming to faith in Christ? Is it safe to follow Christ in a theocracy? What happens to the people of Iran when the leaders are talking about war? How do we pray for the Iranian people? Then let’s discuss masculinity – not like the world discusses it but as the Word defines it. What does it mean to be a man? What is the” masculine critique”? Join us for an hour of conversation designed to make you think critically and biblically.
We open the phone lines this hour to take your questions on spiritual warfare. So much of our theology is based on what Hollywood “teaches” us through entertainment rather than through the Word of God. As the world around us goes darker, giving evidence to the reality of the “unseen” battle all around us, it’s important to know just what the Bible says on this topic – and how you can be victorious through the One who has conquered evil. Call in early – the lines light up!!
