Gospel Points – Phillip Anderson for US Senate

This week on the Gospel Points podcast we focus yet again on the 2016 election. While many are focused on the top of the ticket, there are many down ticket races worthy of our attention. In Wisconsin, Republican Ron Johnson is trying to protect his US Senate seat from the man he defeated to get his job, Russ Feingold. However, these not the only two men on the ballot. Also hoping to capture this seat is Phillip Anderson of the Libertarian Party. Phillip is our guest on this last episode before the election and the candidate who has earned my endorsement in this race. Philip is a dedicated Christian with a master’s degree in applied theology. Listen in as we chat about his solid pro-life credentials, the role people of faith play within the Libertarian Party, gay marriage and the dangers of evangelicals seeking only to use political means to advance their agenda.

This week on the Gospel Points podcast we continue our look into the issue of Christians and depression.

So listen in and hear answers to such questions as, is depression a spiritual or medical issue? Is depression a sin? What are the causes of depression? What is the spiritual condition of those who take their own life?

Gospel Points – Tom Hoefling for President, Part 2

Hoefling2

Our look into the 2016 presidential election continues with our second and final segment with Tom Hoefling of America’s Party. Last week we spoke mostly about Tom’s passion to defend the rights of the unborn. This week we learn more about America’s Party and the differences between it and the Constitution Party. We also chat about Christianity’s relationship to our American concept of freedom and the so-called faith of Donald Trump. Don’t worry, of course we had to ask, is a vote for Tom Hoefling really a vote for Hillary Clinton?

Gospel Points – Tom Hoefling for President, Part 1

Hoefling1

This week we are joined by Tom Hoefling as we continue our look into the 2016 presidential race. Mr. Hoefling is the America’s Party candidate and on the ballot in several key states. While the scope of our interview runs the gamut of different issues, it’s clear that this candidate’s passion is to defend the rights of the unborn. This is not merely a political issue in his mind. So, in this first segment we focus on the issue of abortion and the fight to uphold life. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this episode. Tom’s heart for this is inspirational and hopefully contagious.
