Lighthouse Ministries is making a difference in so many lives each and every day. Based in Lakeland, their reach extends all over Moody Radio Florida's listening area. Providing shelter and food for the homeless and downtrodden, helping folks overcome addictions, manning Hope Centers for those who need Jesus. They also run some awesome thrift stores and so much more! President and CEO Steve Turbeville stopped by to share some stories of the wonderful work the Lord is doing through this ministry.
Critics outside the church often accuse the Old Testament God of genocide, racism, ethnic cleansing, and violence. But a rising tide of critics within the church claim that Moses and other "primitive," violence-prone prophets were mistaken about God's commands and character. Both sets of critics dismiss this allegedly harsh, flawed, "textual" Old Testament God in favor of the kind, compassionate, "actual" God revealed by Jesus. Are they right to do so? Apologist Paul Copan stopped by this morning to tackle all of this.
