How to overcome pornography? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
We live in a pornographic culture where erotic images bombard us on the Internet, on TV, in movies. A Covenant Eyes study found that 50% of professing Christian men and 20% of professing Christian women say they are addicted to pornography.”
The tragic consequences are everywhere: sexual immorality, violence, and broken marriages and families.
To view pornography is to lust, which Jesus equates to adultery. The good news is that God promises a way to escape the temptation. Hear 8 gospel-centered strategies from pastor and author Heath Lambert by visiting TheChristianWorldview.org
This weekend, we’ll seek to understand the biblical view on immigration.
Guest: Heath Lambert, pastor and author, Finally Free
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.” Philippians 4:8
Josh McDowell, our guest on the program last week, said that pornography on the Internet is “the number one problem ever faced by the church in 2000 years.”
Pornography is everywhere and impacting almost everyone. According to a Covenant Eyes study, “One out of eight searches on the Internet is for erotic content, more than 50% of boys and nearly a third of girls see their first pornographic images before they turn 13, and 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women say they are addicted to pornography.”
Statistics are one thing, but the sexual immorality and ruined marriages that result from viewing pornography are the real-world, soul-crushing consequences.
The key question is: How do we overcome the pornography temptation? As addictive as any drug, is it possible to have victory?
The answer is a resounding yes! Heath Lambert, pastor, professor, and author of the book, Finally Free: Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to tell us how God’s grace is the key to overcoming our greatest temptations.
How to have victory over a dysfunctional family background. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Most Christians know Josh McDowell as a respected evangelist and apologist, author of many books, speaker to millions. But what most don’t know is that Josh grew up in a home with a drunk father, an abused mother, and a family employee who sexually molested Josh.
As a child, Josh turned his back on God, but God patiently brought Josh to saving faith in Jesus Christ and turned him into a victorious ambassador for Christ. It’s all featured in the powerful film, Undaunted.
This weekend, we will talk about what Josh McDowell says is “the greatest moral threat to the church in 2000 years” — pornography — and how to overcome it.
Guest: Josh McDowell, featured in the film, Undaunted
“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
We hear tragic stories about “dysfunctional” families where alcohol and/or drug use, conflict, divorce, extramarital sexual sin, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse characterize the home. We see the life-long scars on those who grow up in such an environment where sin reigns almost unabated. Maybe you personally experienced this kind of background. If so, there is hope!
Most Christians know Josh McDowell as a respected evangelist and apologist for the Christian faith. Josh has written or co-authored nearly 140 books, spoken to millions of people all over the world, and has been married for over 40 years.
But what most Christians don’t know is that Josh McDowell grew up in a highly dysfunctional home with a drunk father, abused mother, and a worker who sexually molested Josh. Josh turned his back on God, but God eventually rescued Josh and turned him into a victorious ambassador for Jesus Christ.
No matter your background or past, God can do the same for you! Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as we speak with Josh McDowell about the early years of life and how God saved him, all depicted in the powerful, award-winning DVD film we are offering entitled, Undaunted: The Early Life of Josh McDowell.
What’s a Christian to think about “climate change”? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
The debate continues to rage whether man-caused catastrophic global warming is occurring—now called “climate change” as the temperature of the earth hasn’t warmed in 17 years.
Climate change alarmists mock those with a biblical view of creation stewardship, calling them “climate change deniers,” — as if believers in a flat earth — despite the fact that real world observations do not match their dire predictions.
The inconvenient truth is that the fossil fuel reducing policies that climate change purveyors seek to force on us actually hurt the poorest people in the world.
This weekend, Josh McDowell will share the powerful story of how God brought him out of a highly dysfunctional family background.
“Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?” 1 Corinthians 1:20
President Obama and many who share his liberal worldview refer to those who do not believe man is causing catastrophic global warming as “climate change deniers.” They say the hard science is overwhelmingly on their side and that we need to stem our carbon dioxide emissions before it’s too late for the earth.
What is it about global warming (now referred to very generally as “climate change”) that so energizes those with a humanistic worldview? What is “hard science” and whose side of the debate does it favor? How should Christians think and act regarding “climate change”?
Cal Beisner, founder of the Cornwall Alliance, “a network of evangelical Christian theologians, scientists, economists, and other scholars dedicated to promoting Biblical earth stewardship” will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to answer these questions and more about an issue that refuses to go away…no matter the science.
What is going on in Iraq? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
After the US military’s withdrawal from Iraq, a group known as ISIS — which roughly stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria— is brutally taking over large swaths of the country.
ISIS is a radical sect of Sunni Islam, supported by Saudi Arabia. They are nearing Baghdad to overthrow Shia Islam, supported by Iran. The Muslim world is about 85% Sunni and 15% Shia.
Both Sunnis and Shias seek to dominate the Middle East and establish their own version of Sharia Law. Which side will gain control in Iraq is unclear, but both sides agree that the destruction of Israel and the Islamization of the rest of the world is their ultimate goal.
This weekend we’ll discuss what science reveals about the climate change debate.
Guest: Soeren Kern, geopolitical analyst, Gatestone Institute
“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end” — Jesus (Matthew 24:6).
While the Middle East has always been known for its volatility, the region has been especially on fire recently. In Iraq, where the United States recently withdrew its military after spending more than ten years and trillions of dollars and lost thousands of lives, an Al Qaeda associated group called ISIS is quickly and brutally taking over the country.
Similar atrocities are taking place in Syria, Africa, and Egypt as Islamic jihadists kill each other and Christians.
Who and what is behind all these conflicts? How does the Sunni Muslim vs. Shia Muslim divide come into play? What should the United States be doing? How will Israel be impacted? Where is this all going?
Our guest this weekend on The Christian Worldview is Soeren Kern. Soeren is a Christian, an Air Force veteran, an essayist, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, and a worldwide traveler (he has visited more than 100 countries including most of those in the Middle East). Be sure to tune in for analysis that you won’t hear in the mainstream media.
What is really wrong in America? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
The biggest problem in America is not our huge national debt, high unemployment, illegal immigration, ambiguous foreign policy, humanistic media and schools, racism, or even abortion or same-sex marriage.
These are all troubling symptoms of a much bigger problem: the scarcity of God-fearing fathers.
When a nation is characterized by intact families led by a God-fearing father, all of these other ills will be minimized. Why? Because the God-fearing father seeks and obeys the Lord, lovingly leads his wife, and raises his children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” And that is God’s recipe for a stable and peaceful nation.
This weekend we’ll discuss what is going on in the Middle East.
Guest: Bruce Wheaton, David’s 82-year-old father
“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
The biggest problem in America is not our $17 trillion-plus national debt, high unemployment, government dependency, loss of privacy, racism, illegal immigration, weak and ambiguous foreign policy, failing public schools, partisan politics, “homosexual marriage,” abortion, or the legalization of marijuana.
Our biggest problem is not President Obama. He and these other troubling problems are just symptoms of a much bigger problem: the scarcity of God-fearing fathers.
When a nation is characterized by intact families led by a God-fearing father, all of these other ills will be minimized. Why? Because the God-fearing father seeks and obeys the Lord, lovingly leads his wife, and raises his children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
How can a father do this? Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as my 82-year-old father and I discuss “Seven Fundamentals for the God-Fearing Father.”
