Needed! Boldness and Discernment in an Era of Distortion

Share This Post

At a Glance

Are we losing sight of truth in a culture smothered by falsehoods? Even within the church, according to Barna, 41% of American Christians believe that the only truth a person can know is whatever is right for them individually. In this episode we want to help arm you with an understanding of why truthfulness is not just a noble virtue but a critical armor in today’s culture, especially for Christians navigating through the fog of misinformation. We tackle the potent blend of social media and deceptive narratives head-on, addressing the alarmingly popular theories of evolution, and the pressing need for Christians to be the lighthouses of truth as we sail into uncharted waters. Our discussion extends into the societal impact of weaponized propaganda, through the 1619 project, the BLM movement, the social contagion of the sex and gender ideologies, the Covid origins, and the current events in the Gaza strip. Join us as we explore ways to grasp the framework or lens through which we can discern the narratives shaping our public consciousness. The solution is not ignorance, self censorship, doublethink, or winsomeness. The solution is found in the very essence of truth as embodied in Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life.

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.
