His role in the life of the believer is one of utmost importance, but how much do we really understand about the Holy Spirit? On In The Market with Janet Parshall this week we heard from a respected theologian who simplified the eternal mysteries surrounding the Trinity and why we must not dismiss or downplay the role of the Advocate. Around the world there are people every day who go on their computers searching to find the answer to the mystery of who God is and is He really real? A former atheist and now fighter for the faith answered your questions and helped us see the wonder of the sovereign God in a whole new light. What does it mean to be envious and how does it impact the relationships in our lives? We took a deep dive into this rarely talked about but important emotion, how it can easily cripple our lives and what we need to do allow God to set up free from its grasp. As the Israel-Hamas war rages on believers on both sides of the conflict are being called stand up in ways they have never done before. We gave you the opportunity to lengthen your prayer list as we shared some of their stories of faithful perseverance in the face of unimaginable terror and uncertainty. How do we put the ever rolling news cycle into proper context? We do it by standing it up against the unbending truth of God’s word. Janet and Craig invite you to join them for another enlightening examination of the headlines.
On In The Market with Janet Parshall this week, we turned a critical eye toward the growing acceptance of homosexuality in the church. Our guest, a former gay man and now defender of the faith, explained the strategy that was used to draw believers away from God’s definition and standards regarding human sexuality and create greater acceptance of this alternative gospel. Despite the Roe V. Wade victory, the fight for unborn children continues to wage across this nation. Our guest used his legal expertise to help us understand how significant the reversal of the abortion pill ban in Colorado is and why we must all continue the fight for religious freedom in this nation. Across the world believers are standing up and in many cases losing their lives for the gospel and their faith. We encouraged you to take part in a very special event that highlights the persecuted church and what and how to pray for those who are on the front lines of the war against Christianity. The reach and impact of the entertainment industry continues to affect all of our lives. Our guest who has her finger on the pulse of Hollywood, discussed the polarizing impact of the Israel- Hamas war on that industry, the writer’s strike and the recent, unexpected death of a beloved television actor. Then we were invited to step back in time to hear the amazing story of how God used the least likely circumstances to transform the life of a young musician who ended up preserving the early Negro spirituals. We punched your ticket for our radio flight to the Land Down Under as our favorite Scottish apologist shared how God is moving him into a new ministry opportunity. He also gave us some timely warnings about the growth of the anti-Semitism and the transhumanism movements around the world. Now is not the time to be naïve when the daily news reminds us of the ongoing spiritual battle taking place all around us. It is time to sharpen our discernment as we tackle more of the headlines of the week.
