On In The Market with Janet Parshall we heard from a man whose personal journey from Mormonism to follower of Christ has given him invaluable insight into how to understand and speak the message of hope to those in the LDS church. He shared the basic tenets of Mormonism, the hidden significance of family in the Mormon religion and why their Jesus is not the saving Jesus of scripture. We heard from a man who used philosophy, ethics and medicine to support the fight for the preborn. He showed us how to confidently enter the debate for life and how to bring God’s hope to women who are struggling with these literal life and death issues. God makes it clear that prayer is essential to growth in the Christian life, but what do you do when you prayer life is dead? Our guest, a respected bible teacher, helped us understand the role of the Holy Spirit in our prayer lives, understanding the way God answers prayer and so much more. His practical guidance explained the spiritual riches of prayer and why it can not be ignored if we want to deepen our walk of faith. The FDA recently made an announcement regarding over-the-counter contraceptives and we addressed the impact of that decision on the lives of the preborn. We also introduced you to a new mandate that is putting the focus on strong families as the avenue to beat back the scourge of poverty, drug abuse and homelessness in our communities. It’s time to close out another week with an examination of some of the news making headlines around our nation and the world.
Is it possible to live the Christian life successfully if our understanding of God, our theology, is wrong? This week on In The Market with Janet Parshall we went right to heart of faith as we examined what Christian orthodoxy is and is not and how to see God’s revelation of himself through tradition, reason and scripture. We continued to be the watchman on the wall as we focused the spotlight once again on the ongoing threat of China and its unrelenting push for control of the world. We told you about China’s plans for stealth warfare that could attack without warning, their stockpiling of nuclear weapons and the growing momentum for a war with Taiwan and what that could mean for the United States. The end of Roe V. Wade was not the end of the battle. We explained the efforts by some of create a pipeline to get abortion pills into states where they are no longer sold. In what can only be described as “Frankensteinian”, we sounded the warning about efforts to create human embryos from human stem cells and the deadly purpose for which this scientific effort is underway. We explained the dangers of women who take testosterone to become trans men, especially on the unborn children they carry. Janet and Craig are ready to dig deep in the news and continue their master class on using God’s truth as the plumb line for discernment in this time of flash news and rhetoric recycling.
