Humility is an essential element of the Christian life, but it is possible to take humility TOO far? Should we set a limit on our humility or is it flexible depending upon the situation we are in. Kurt recently ran across an article that helps bring this issue to the front. With the help of our great callers, this program explores the twin challenges of humility and pride and whether or not it is possible to be TOO humble.
Have you ever dated or even married someone who showed their "true colors" later in the relationship or sometime after the honeymoon was over? A phone call from one our listeners opened up this conversation on "bait and switch" relationships and how we handle them in a biblical way. There is a lot to this issue and our callers bravely peel back the layers of their lives to share their dramatic and thought inspiring stories.
An email from one our our callers became the open door to a serious conversation about bullying and it's lifetime stain on the lives of victims. Our callers shared with Kurt and each other their stories of being attacked in their youth and how the pain and impact of that stayed with them for many years. But as we discovered bullying does not just happen in the school yard. From family to jobs, bullying can happen anyplace, at any time, to anyone. But as always we also heard the stories of how God has helped his people not only cope but overcome their pains and hurts from bullying. If bullying is part of your past, then this is the show you NEED to hear.
We don't know if the incident is true, but a recent article about the alleged behavior of a Christian family to a server with a LGBTQ equality tattoo on her arm has raised the ire of many people. But it is also a perfect door for Kurt and our callers to have a lively conversation about how we judge others as believers and the dangers and pitfalls as well as the times when it may be biblically justified. This conversation travels down a lot of road and along the way we all gained some great wisdom and insight from the experiences of our listeners.

The upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, has captured the attention of people around the nation and the world. But some Chrisitans are speculating that this event may be more some sort of sign or notice from God of serious events on the horizon. Is it the return of Christ? Is it the begining of the end? Is it judgement upon the United States? Is it the first step toward a nationwide spiritual revival? Kurt and our callers explore than and many other theories about the eclipse in this edtion of Kurt Goff Live.
The old saying "God helps those who help themselves" is NOT in the Bible(although many people think that it is.) But it does raise and interesting question regarding the importance, if any, of personal responsibility in the life of the believer. Does God expect us to do something BEFORE He acts or is our response a result of His actions first? Join Kurt and our callers as they dig deep into this topic with a conversation that covers many different viewpoints on this issue.
A letter from a listener opened the door to the conversation about the challenges of working on your day of worship and how to deal with that issue. Does God give people a pass on this matter or are there strict scriptural guidelines regarding working on our day of worship? This is not an easy issue to nail down as you will hear in this edition of Kurt Goff Live.
Based on a new study looking at whether or not service is an acceptable substitue for giving financially to your church, Kurt decided to open the phones and give our callers a chance to weigh in on this topic. That led to an interesting and challenging conversation covering all aspects of the topic with insight from the personal experiences of pastors and lay people who have struggled with this very issue.
It's time for a little fun as Kurt and our callers weigh in on another one our our unofficial polls. Join us for a very lively (but loving) conversation about those people who sit next to you in the pews at church. And speaking of church, sometimes things don't always go the way they are supposed to during a service, do they? We're talking about that too as we close down another great week of Kurt Goff Live.
Once frowned up, living together before marriage(if the marriage ever happens at all) has grown in popularity in the United States. It has become an acceptable option for many Christians as well. Kurt and our callers explore this issue with stories from their own lives, many from people who lived with someone before marriage and have some practical real life wisdom and advice to share with all of us on this very important issue of our day.
Has God ever called you to move physically or spiritually from one place to another? For some that leading can be filled with all sorts of challenges and blessings along the way. Join Kurt and our callers as they share their stories of the times God led them to make a major move in their lives, the challenges the faced and the wisdom and insight they learned when they obeyed His leading.
