    November 24, 2022 God’s Providence: What If Jesus Had Never Been Born - II

    According to Dr. Jerry Newcombe, so much of what is good about America can be traced back to the Bible. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the executive director of the Providence Forum concludes that there’s not a square mile on planet earth where Jesus has not made a positive difference. From Christian hospitals, orphanages, and schools to Christianity’s contribution to civil liberties, science, and medicine, this world would not be what it is without the Lord’s impact. Colossians 1:16-17 declares, For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

God will not hold us guiltless if we are silent in this hour. The people of God need to rise up in defense of the unborn.

    October 27, 2022 America’s Moral Freefall - II

    In the early 1980s, Dr. Francis Schaeffer warned of the disastrous effects of elevating an individual’s needs over the needs of society. Sadly, we are seeing his words of caution come to fruition even now. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Dr. Schaeffer calls out Bible-believing Christians for their silence in the face of the great moral issues of our day. He asserts that the Church has failed for two reasons. First, we’ve forgotten that Jesus is not only our Savior, but the Lord of all life. Second, many of us are too afraid to speak out. Dr. Schaeffer says that like the early Christians and America’s founding fathers, we must seek to obey God rather than man.

On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, author and theologian Dr. Francis Schaeffer asserts that America’s moral decline can be traced back to the rejection of the biblical notion that man is created in God’s image. He states that abortion, the failed public school system and the breakdown of the family are simply the ugly and inevitable results of a shift from a Christian worldview to a humanist worldview.

    The problem in our culture is simple. Like the Israelites in Judges 17:6, everyone is doing what is right in his or her own eyes. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Christian radio host Janet Parshall says that anytime people search for their significance apart from the Lord, it leads to sinful chaos. From the increase in gender affirming care to new definitions of marriage, Americans are rejecting their God-given design. If Christians want God-honoring, pro-family policies re-established and maintained in our nation, we must make our voices heard at the polls.

    When Cleopas and his wife talked to Jesus on the road to Emmaus that first Easter morning, initially they didn’t recognize Him. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Pastor Clayton King surmises what prompted them to finally recognize their Savior. After Jesus led his followers in that unique 7-mile-long Bible study, He broke bread, passing it to them with His palm facing upward, and they saw for the first time His nail-scarred wrists. Have your eyes and hearts been open to the Lord just as Cleopas and his wife’s were in Luke 24?

    September 26, 2022 Don’t Miss Your Moment - I

    For the past two years, we’ve all had a lot on our plates. Skyrocketing inflation. Political upheaval. And, of course, the dreaded COVID pandemic. Some of us are frustrated and anxious, thinking that we have missed our moment in life. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Pastor Clayton King brings a message of encouragement. He preaches from Luke 24, where Jesus appeared to two of His downcast followers, Cleopas and his wife, on their walk to Emmaus. Jesus had just risen from the dead, yet they were unaware, and thus, despondent. Rather than dramatically announce His resurrection in downtown Jerusalem for all to see, Jesus personally revealed the Good News to these two obscure followers. He will lift your countenance as well.

    August 2, 2022 Being Men of God in a Lost Culture - II

    According to Dr. Steve Farrar, America is in a moral free-fall. We are living off the spiritual capital of the past, but it's now coming to a halt. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Dr. Farrar says our country is in need of true revival. Much like the spiritual awakenings of the past, we need three things. An economic collapse to push us toward God, an outpouring of prayer, and the leadership of Christian men. Second Chronicles 16:9 says, For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.

    America has a leadership crisis. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Dr. Steve Farrar challenges men to understand three things that are true about our times.

Dr. Farrar, the founder of Men’s Leadership Ministries, also stresses the need for genuine godly leadership in society today, and calls upon fathers to guide their children through the cultural fog.

    July 29, 2022 Celebrating the Green Family and the 50th Anniversary of Hobby Lobby - II

    For David Green and his son, Steve Green, family has always been a priority, and that value is something they pass on to their employees at Hobby Lobby. When the Affordable Care Act mandated that businesses provide contraceptives to their employees in 2012, the Greens refused to put a pre-born baby’s life in jeopardy, despite a threatened million-dollar-per-day penalty. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Steve Green, president of the beloved craft store, reveals that while they prayed that God would deliver them, like Daniel in the lion’s den, they were also prepared to suffer like Job. In 2014, God delivered them through their victorious Supreme Court ruling.

Steve, who became president of Hobby Lobby in 2004, affirms God’s call on the Green family to be wise stewards and bold evangelists in all of their endeavors.

    June 1, 2022 Millennials in America: Insights into a Generation of Growing Influence - II

    On today’s edition of Family Talk, researcher George Barna continues to discuss his latest findings on Millennials to our own Dr. Tim Clinton. Barna reveals that 25-40 year-olds tend not only to reject the Bible as truth, but they also subscribe to the idea that truth comes from within. Ironically, most of them still consider themselves to be Christians. To Millennials, being a believer has nothing to do with Jesus, God, or the Bible. Rather, it’s just about being a good person. However, if they encounter authentic Christians whose lives have been transformed, they will listen. While we are sobered by the overwhelming statistical data that proves most Millennials lack a biblical worldview, we must remain encouraged that as Christians, we can offer them hope through our personal testimonies.

    May 31, 2022 Millennials in America: Insights into a Generation of Growing Influence - I

    Millennials in America are not only redefining sexuality, but our national values as well. On today’s edition of Family Talk, researcher George Barna explains to co-host Dr. Tim Clinton that the reason why people ages 25-40 are spiritually adrift is because nine out of ten grew up in households without a biblical worldview. No wonder 75 percent don’t have a clear purpose, and only 20 percent believe all life is sacred. Due to their secular experiences, Millennials are prone to give up on marriage, on having kids, and even on life itself. But authentic, caring Christians can easily point them toward the Lord and Heaven.

    May 30, 2022 Creeds of a Warrior: Fighting Spiritual Battles

    One of the biggest problems with American Christianity today is the misconception that God saved you only so you can go to Heaven. That’s not true! The Lord also saved you so that you could be a warrior in His kingdom here on earth. On today’s Family Talk, Lt. General (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, who commanded elite Delta Force combat missions, outlines the spiritual application of five revered and timeless military mottos. For example, Semper Fi, the Marine slogan which means Always faithful, should remind us of our call to be faithful to God as He has always been with us. Galatians 6:9 says, Let us not become weary in doing good.

During that time, he had exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and was serving the creature rather than the Creator. Ultimately, it was his arrest, prison sentence, and HIV+ diagnosis that served as a massive wake-up call, resulting in Christopher giving his life to the Lord. After reading the Bible, he discovered that God’s unconditional love did not mean unconditional approval of his sinful behavior, and he realized that his identity must be found in Christ alone.

After the loss of a close friend to cancer, the grief from her past traumas rose to the surface, resulting in her falling into a deep depression and isolation. Through community and counseling, Mandisa finally found joy. Psalm 40:3 is her testimony, He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.

    Fourteen years ago, Katherine Wolf suffered a massive stroke which led to thirteen surgeries and a life of limited mobility and other challenges. Since then, she’s disrupted the myth that joy can only be found in a pain-free life. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the author of Hope Heals points to Colossians 3 where the Apostle Paul wrote, Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. No matter what trial you’re enduring, Katherine calls you to persevere.

    Did you know that before Roe v. Wade, the once reputable American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists opposed killing babies in the womb? Tragically, the group by and large became aggressively pro-abortion once the egregious law was passed in 1973. In the late 2000s, the organization declared that if a physician will not perform or refer an abortion, he or she is unethical, and should even lose his or her license. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Christina Francis explains that the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists was formed to reaffirm the value and dignity of individual human life in all stages of growth and development. Their 60,000 pro-life members, who are all doctors, assert that science is demonstrably on the side of life -- from the moment of conception.

    February 8, 2022 Beloved Unbeliever - II

    A Christian wife married to an unbelieving husband has to walk a tightrope. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Jo Berry, a favorite guest of Dr. Dobson for many years, shares lessons from her book Beloved Unbeliever: Loving Your Husband into the Faith. On one hand, Jo says a wife should not participate with her husband in any activities prohibited by Scripture such as getting drunk or viewing porn. On the other hand, she warns the Christian wife against flaunting her spirituality, becoming dogmatic, or disrespecting her husband. One thing is indisputable: a wife should not hesitate to disciple the kids in the ways of the Lord.

On today’s edition of Family Talk, the late Jo Berry, who was a lecturer, Bible study teacher, and faithful wife, clarifies that this is not a strict prohibition from ever talking about God or church activities. Berry acknowledges that a wife should not try to nag her husband into Heaven. If she allows her Christian witness to do the talking, God can use her faithfulness to convert her husband.

    Wokeness is a modern-day heresy which is incompatible with Christianity, according to theologian Dr. Owen Strachan, author of Christianity and Wokeness: How the Social Justice Movement Is Hijacking the Gospel. While its divisive rhetoric employs some biblical vocabulary and concepts, it is indeed an alternative religion, both in its methods and outcome. A potent blend of racism, moral relativism, and grievance, wokeness undermines the unifying work of the Holy Spirit. It is, therefore, anti-gospel, and Dr. Strachan offers a strategy to oppose it.
