We live in a cultural moment where the definition of "woman" eludes the keenest of thinkers and brightest of scientists, where one’s biological sex and one’s gender are divorced, where the meaning of gender itself is a constantly moving target, and where girls and women, especially, struggle to know who they are. Where societal confusion has naturally ensued from this state of affairs, and Christians especially wonder how to think and respond to it, our guest will offer a clear and helpful guide to understanding why, as a culture, we’ve arrived in such a place of gender confusion and what Scripture and science have to say on the matter. Join us for a compassionate and timely conversation.
Every time we take up the topic of narcissism, the phones stay lit for the entire hour. Why is that? What is the Church doing – or not doing – to address this particular kind of abuse? How do narcissists “get away with it”? How are they able to fool so many when their manipulation and triangulation go unseen by the people in their lives? How are they able to continue with their long established and damaging patterns of abuse? We will answer these questions – and more – as we once again tackle this most deadly personality type.
