Do we still have the same Religious Freedom as we did in 1776? Are we a Nation that affirms our rights are from God or do we look to government as the giver of rights? As we approach the celebration of America's birth, Focus on the Family's chief legal analyst Bruce Hausknecht will join us to share the sobering state of our union and why there is still great reason for hope and optimism.
As we celebrate the remarkable freedom that we've been given to practice our faith, share our faith, and access to the Bible, Christian books and broadcasts, many around the world continue to live in communities and nations that are hostile to the Gospel. On Wednesday we visit with Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs who regularly shares the news from our brothers and sisters who are suffering as a result of their faith in Christ. Be listening for the matters for prayer, the reasons to praise, and the action we can take to support those in chains for the Gospel.
Ken's morning devotional comes from "Men's Devotional New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs". The devotion on Galations 1:3-5 was titled "Friend, Not Foe" and was written by W. Phillip Keller
