Fighting Shadows with Jon Tyson

Today, as men, we need to do more than understand the largely lost concept of biblical masculinity. We need freedom. Most men are trapped by “shadows” or lies and have a difficult time expressing vulnerability, making us familiar with the grip of isolation and loneliness. This is not the life God intended…

The Gospel Has No Significance for Society

Christian nationalism was recently denounced by John MacArthur as a faulty viewpoint. He says things will get continually worse on Earth. Unfortunately, this view cultivates apathy and even discourages cultural influence. In contrast to this view, Christ teaches us to pray: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…

Words Worth Rejecting or Redeeming with Dr. Elizabeth Youmans

Words are constantly created and redefined in our day. With such dramatic shifts, how can we have the “mind of Christ?” Words are not just sounds we utter; they are powerful building blocks for culture. Words and their meanings shape our thinking, convictions, beliefs, and worldview – ultimately bringing about our actions. Which words need to be redeemed? Are there words that need to be rejected? Today we are joined by author, teacher, education consultant, trainer, speaker, and our good friend, Dr. Elizabeth Youmans, who helps us think deeply about this while helping us consider specific words like, gender, marriage, liberty and more.

What’s the Harm of IVF? With Katy Faust

The Alabama Supreme Court recently ruled that frozen embryos created through in vitro fertilization (IVF) are children. This case caused many to realize how little they know about IVF and the principles that drive the practice. Christians instinctively celebrate anything that has to do with children and life, but we will talk about the deeper worldview principles underneath the surface. Guest Katie Faust, sentinel of children’s rights and president of Them Before Us, helps us tackle the complexities of how society’s adult-centric desires impact voiceless children. She also talks about if there is an ethical way for believers to participate in IVF.

Easter Part 1: The Continuing Work of Christ

The Hebrew people in the Old Testament anticipated a Messiah that would be a priest and a King, radically changing every area of our worldly experience, and restoring it to God’s original intentions. Welcome to a two-part Easter series as we look at the practical impact that Christ’s death and resurrection has on each of our lives. When Jesus came, He never intended for us to keep our faith relegated to attending church and being privately spiritual. The same power that rose Jesus from the grave lives in us, and gives us power and purpose to continue His work in the world. Jesus says He is with us always and that He has all authority in heaven and on earth. He also calls us to make disciples, teaching them to obey everything He has commanded. This is an all-encompassing call, given by an omnipotent God. Where is He calling you to partner more fully with His ongoing work in the world?

Beauty: Abortion’s Antidote with Sami Parker

Discover a vision for a culture that recognizes the innate beauty of every human life as we journey with Sami Parker of Live Action through the frontlines of pro-life advocacy. Witness firsthand how Live Action is challenging the prevailing worldviews promoting abortion, utilizing social media to spark transformative discussions that transcend the screen into the very fabric of society. The predominant narrative or story of our time does not recognize God, sees humans as mere animals, and labels unrestrained sex as a “human right.” The biblical worldview recognizes the beauty in every aspect of God’s created order. This episode is a call to Christians to don the full armor of their faith, merging the Gospel’s transformative power with active cultural engagement to foster a society that not only protects, but cherishes life.

Shifts in Journalism that Left Behind Objectivity and the Bible with Dr. Marvin Olasky

Increasingly, news culture pushes stories that advance their agenda from writers sitting behind a desk. Gone are the days when reporters would get onto the street to reveal the facts about what is happening at the heart of an issue. Dr. Marvin Olasky calls us back to this foundation, reminding us of the importance of hearing from diverse viewpoints and going beyond austere sermonizing to tell stories that are not only useful and true, but interesting. Olasky is quick to point out the profound impact that Christianity had on culture as he recounts the mistreatment of people in other times and parts of the world. Join us and consider the news you are hearing and sharing with others.

Full-Time: Work and the Meaning of Life with David Bahnsen

We have an active, working, creative God who created humanity to be like Him. As such, our daily work should be a source of meaning and purpose in our lives. Yet, even among believers, work is often approached as a burden that remains an unfortunate means to a better end, like the weekend or even retirement. In contrast, the Bible often equates our work with our worship. When did we forget this? Over the last decade, the rate of prime-aged men in the U.S. not working has been lower than it was during the Great Depression! However, unlike during the Great Depression, most of these men are choosing not to work. In the words of today’s guest, we are undergoing an epidemic of worklessness. Why is this? Today, we are joined by David Bahnsen, a renowned financial advisor and teacher on the integration of faith and economics. If you are searching for ways to integrate theology into every part of your daily work, you will not want to miss this episode!

Faith Deconstruction: Helpful or Destructive?

Deconstruction is a phrase that is becoming increasingly common. Many even in the faith community have started using this phrase. What is the result of this phenomenon? How is it impacting young people of faith? Is there anything useful or redeeming about it or is it always destructive? Today, we trace the evolution of deconstruction back to its philosophical roots with Jacques Derrida and unpack how it’s reshaping Western thought and the spiritual landscape inside many churches. We look at this in a historical context and consider the worldviews behind this phenomenon of deconstruction. Finally, we examine the rising trend of faith deconstruction in Christian culture, looking at what it is, who is doing it, why it’s happening, and how we can respond to those who say they are deconstructing their faith.
