A young Podcast listener recently wrote, “My dad is so self-absorbed that he doesn’t notice that we are dying spiritually, relationally, and emotionally. He acts like we are an inconvenience, and is very disrespectful to my mother. At church, he says all the right things, but at home he’s yelling, gone, or too tired to spend any time with us. I just want my dad back.” … Continue reading
The need to address revival and the vital role of the Holy Spirit is as relevant today as it has been throughout church history. As America falls deeper into depravity and further from God, the need to be awakened from our spiritual slumber has never been greater. Our only hope is a mighty move of God’s Spirit…a revival of the spiritual condition of His people. But George D.

In reality, it’s no surprise that they take this position—in order for Christianity to appear palatable and less intrusive to our culture, many feel that we need to rethink, redefine, and rename difficult truths, including repentance…
Although disheartening, society’s trend away from God’s Word and absolute truth is not surprising. The apostle Paul warned of this many years ago: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine (God’s Word), but according to their own desires … they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)… Continue reading
