TTWMN 212: Suitability, Satisfaction & Sexual Imprinting

There is a lot of talk these days about sexuality and something called “gender identity”. Christians who believe the Bible are not only automatically disqualified by the world from discussions on these topics due to their presumed prudishness and/or ignorance, but also we who believe what God said in His Word are often immediately cast as haters of those caught up in these issues, judgmental and self-righteous in our condemnation of someone just wanting to be and love who one wants. But is that fair? All of us have sinned, maybe most of us have fallen in this specific area, so having lived through doing things “our way” and now in hindsight seeing the damage we did to ourselves and our loved ones, we should have the wisdom to help others in love…so why aren’t we? Here with us today to teach us about God’s original plan and His will for us in these areas is teacher and author of the book, Broken Yet Blessed, Kathi McCarty.

TTWMN 206: What I Meant To Say

Have you ever been in a conversation with someone and they react to something you said in a way that surprised you? Maybe they were offended by something you said when you meant no offense at all. Or maybe they arrived at a conclusion based on something you said that is contrary to what you believe or meant to say. Why is that? Communication is both a science and an art. Effective communication only occurs when both parties understand one another’s views and opinions and can either have productive dialogue to resolve a difference or simply agree to disagree without raising the tension to a dangerous level. The Bible has a lot to say about the words we speak and how we speak them, giving us examples of how godly people should communicate with one another. Today’s show is titled “What I Meant to Say” as we look to God’s Word to give us advice on how we effectively communicate with each other as spouses, families and fellow believers.

TTWMN 205: Integrity

There is something we can have that is more priceless than any amount of money in our bank account or 401K. It’s more important than having a great job, social standing or powerful connections. You could say it’s even more important than what you’ll eat today, having shelter and clothes to wear…because if you DON’T have it, you will always be looking over your shoulder, always be wondering when you’ll be found out, laying awake at night thinking about all the opportunities you blew to do the right thing, and how many people that may have hurt. Nothing can destroy Christian witness faster than lacking this—because nobody will believe whatever you say if you lack it. Today’s topic is integrity.

TTWMN 199: What’s Tearing Us Apart

Here’s a vocabulary word for today: “strife”, defined as “angry or bitter disagreement over fundamental issues; conflict.” Merriam Webster includes the idea of a “struggle for superiority” in strife. While you don’t need to look too far today to see examples of strife in the news, between political parties, interest groups and even generations, Christians are now experiencing increasing strife in places that maybe we never thought we would. And if we don’t first check ourselves and our motives before engaging in it with those closest to us, this strife can have devastating consequences.

TTWMN 197: The Attack on Manhood

In case you haven’t noticed in younger generations these days, men aren’t what they used to be. And if you’re a “Baby Boomer” like us, you may be stunned at the diminishing of men in education, entertainment and society—it’s actually been going on for a while, maybe begun as an attempt to “right some wrongs” in how women were treated and girls were trained. But now the tables have flipped, and all statistics show that girls are the ones prospering, while men keep falling behind farther and farther. And whether you blame the removal of fathers in the Great Society, boys’ obsessions with video gaming, the re-engineering of our education curriculum and methods to favor girls, the treatment of masculinity as “toxic” in our universities’ “Women’s Studies” programs, or the actual effects of toxic chemicals which disrupt the endocrine system, you can’t deny that men aren’t what they used to be. So today, we’ll explore the reasons and remedies in “The Attack on Manhood”.

TTWMN 188: Protecting Innocence

There is no doubt anymore that the Enemy now has the full and even enthusiastic support of society to ensnare your kids in a lifetime of slavery to sin. And while the recent headlines of Teen Vogue or plots & characters of Disney Channel’s Doc McStuffins may have shocked us, we know the country has been going this direction for a long, long time. Public education, the media and the entertainment industry have been making a concerted effort to subvert the morality of our children for decades, an effort now aided by parents either too lazy or too afraid to step up and put boundaries on their kids…you know, actually “parent” them, teaching them right from wrong, giving them boundaries, and teaching them their choices have consequences for which they and they alone are responsible.

TTWMN 175: Christian Relationships (Part 2)

As Christians we are called to love all people, even those who hate us or would persecute us for our belief in Jesus Christ. But even we as Christians, saved by God’s grace but still struggling with our sinful and selfish nature, do not often know how to love others well. And loving all people does not mean loving them equally or in the same way. So just how can we do that the way God commands us to as His children?

TTWMN 171: Love Starts Here

It’s pretty clear there is a tremendous shortage of love in the world today—there’s plenty of what passes for love, from Facebook friends (as long as they don’t say something you disagree with) to mere physical attraction, but as you know if you’ve listened to this show much, REAL love is something different, something rare, self-sacrificing and unconditional—in the Greek the word used is “agape”. Jesus said the world would know his followers by their agape love—but what does that mean? What on earth does that look like? Joining us to explain is teacher and author of the book, Broken Yet Blessed, Kathi McCarty.
