Gospel Points – Mike Huckabee on Abortion

This past week was the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision that legalized the destruction of human life in the womb. So, I want to play for you a question I was able to pose a little while back to Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee at a get together in New Hampshire. I asked the governor to talk about his commitment to stand for the unborn and outlaw abortion. Listen in to his response to my question.

Gospel Points – Dinner Dialoguing with Atheists

JohncwGuest – John Cobbett-Walden, teacher and musician

Description – This holiday season will no doubt feature those awkward dinner conversations that are sure to cause tension and division.  Often times these conversations will center on the issue of our faith.  Can we have meaningful dialogue with those outside the faith, even atheists?  I believe the answer is yes.  Joining me on the podcast for the next three weeks is John Cobbett-Walden.  John grew up in a Christian home, attended a Christian church and even spent time teaching in a Christian school before abandoning his faith.  For the past few years John and I have been engaging each other on social media, discussing our differences in what I believe to be a meaningful way.  So, I asked John to join us and chat about how to have these conversations without the rancor and division that so often accompanies such talk.  In this first segment I ask him to describe his departure from Christianity.

Description – This past week my wife and I rejoiced (with many of you) over the adoption of our two sons, Tony and Tommy.  Our journey began in a Texas Roadhouse in Janesville, WI as my pastor encouraged Jill and I to read the book, Adopted for Life by Russell Moore.  God used that conversation and that book to lead us to the moment we just celebrated and will continue to celebrate the rest of our lives.  So, in honor of this, for the next two podcasts I will be airing an interview I conducted with Dr. Moore several years ago.  In this first part, Dr. Moore explains why he wrote the book, the theological concept of adoption and a few words on the subject of infertility.

Gospel Points – Where Was God in the Paris Terrorist Attacks?

Guest – Bob Bixby, former missionary to France and current pastor of Redeemer Church in pray-for-paris-1Fremont, CA.

Description – This week on Gospel Points we had intended to air an interview I recorded concerning Christians and depression. Yet, after the events of this weekend I felt it appropriate to change topics all of a sudden. So, this week we ask the question, where was God during the Paris terrorist attacks? To answer this question I asked my friend Bob Bixby to join us on the broadcast. Our discussion focused mainly on the concept of how our view of sovereignty played into this tragedy. Listen in on this fascinating conversation that alludes to French history, the imminence of God and concludes with a gospel application that we all need to hear.
