The Case for Hope in a Year of Despair

There's not a lot making Americans hopeful these days. More than half of the country told pollsters last year that they were “extremely worried” about the direction of the country. One in 4 said that “nothing made them hopeful.” Their anxieties: politics, the pandemic, and inflation.This year, existing worries have likely been compounded by fears and anger over mass shootings, the war in Ukraine, more fallen Christian leaders, and sex abuse scandal cover-ups by church leaders, a massive drought on the Southwest side of the country, climate change inaction, spiking fentanyl deaths, a surge in crime, an explosion in homelessness.In the midst of this, why should Christians hope? Carmen Joy Imes is Associate Professor of Old Testament at Biola University. She has previously joined the show to nerd out about the Bible in light of Trump getting COVID and controversy over the San Francisco school board seeking to drop the names of a lot of well-known Americans from their schools.Imes joined global media manager Morgan Lee to discuss what it looks like to practice hope in the mist of despair and how we move past Christian platitudes and flimsy one-liners to a robust faith that there is more to our present circumstances.

When it comes to ensuring the spiritual well-being of our children, how do we go beyond just “raising them in church”? As the next generation navigates unprecedented issues surrounding gender identity, doubt, and resistance to the Christian faith—it won't be enough for them to simply have the faith of their parents. How do we equip them to become disciples of Jesus Christ in a hostile world?According to Barna and USA today, nearly 59% of youth leave the church after they graduate, and only17% maintain a Biblical worldview. According to a Lifeway survey, the most common catalysts for leaving the church are moving to college, witnessing hypocrisy within the church, and no longer feeling connected to the body of Christ.This week, Jonathan welcomes Hillary Morgan Ferrer to Candid Conversations. Her passion is to help equip parents to answer the questions their children will inevitably ask and teach them how to “demolish arguments raised against the knowledge of God” (2 Cor. 10:5). She is the founder and Mama-Bear-in-Chief of Mama Bear Apologetics, and she has a burden to help provide accessible apologetics resources for busy parents. Together, Jonathan and Hillary discuss how we can better equip families with resources and critical thinking skills, including her own methodology called “ROAR,” to help recognize unbiblical ideas and develop discernment.Hillary is the chief author and editor of the bestselling book, Mama Bear Apologetics: Empowering Your Kids to Challenge Cultural Lies and Mama Bear Apologetics Guide to Sexuality: Empowering Your Kids to Understand and Live Out God's Design. Hillary has her master's degree in biology from Clemson University and is working on her master's in apologetics from Biola University. She loves helping parents discern both truths and lies, understand science and culture, and understand the root causes of doubt.Visit the Mama Bear Apologetics' blog: https://mamabearapologetics.comTo ask Jonathan a question or connect with the Candid community, visit https://LTW.org/CandidFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/candidpodInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/candidpodTwitter: https://twitter.com/thecandidpod

Could the secret to who we are lay hidden in the ancient past? Dr. Carmen Imes, associate professor of Old Testament Studies at Biola University, says "yes"! Specifically, Carmen directs us back to the events that took place at Mount Sinai, when the nation of Israel truly met their God. In this fascinating interview, Frank discusses issues with Carmen such as: How do the events of Mount Sinai point us to understanding our true identity today?, have we completely misunderstood the commandment 'Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain'?, and what does it mean to bear God's image vs. to bear God's name? Carmen discusses all of this and more in her recent book, Bearing God's Name: Why Sinai Still Matters. Carmen also reveals insights from her soon-to-be-released book, Being God's Image: Why Creation Still Matters (coming June 2023). She unpacks how acknowledging who we are as God's image bearers directs how we understand our purpose, identity, and significance. Plus, Frank sits down with Phoenix Hayes, the Creative Director at CrossExamined, to discuss some of the philosophical and moral implications that follow when we divorce our identity and personhood from our biology.

Colby Gilmore is a financial advisor for Ron Blue Trust with a particular passion for helping clients explore generosity. Colby's passion for generosity began during a class he took at Biola University called God and Money. His experience in that course led him and his wife to make the largest gift they had ever made up to that point, one with significant consequences not only for the recipient, but for Colby and his wife as well.  Colby's career in accounting and later financial advising eventually led him to Ron Blue Trust, where he finally found the freedom to openly share his passion for generosity with the clients he works with. Colby shares on topics like how generosity can radically impact your marriage, why we're called to challenge others towards generosity, and stories of lives he's seen changed from his perspective as a financial advisor. Listen now to hear all he had to share. QUOTES TO REMEMBER “Generosity will never be off the table” “God doesn't need our money, He wants our heart. But He can do incredibly impactful things with whatever we give.” “You can't fail with God on your side.” “God is compounding returns for eternity.”  “We think about emotional intimacy, or spiritual intimacy, but we often don't think about financial intimacy.” “Couples that incorporate generosity free themselves to have a lot more fun, financial intimacy, and success.” “Every client that comes in here, God has brought here.” “How do you know when you've won the game? How do you know when you've reached the finish line?” “I don't know if I want to be comfortable.

If you are a new or mature Christian concerned about your eternal security in Christ - you are not alone. In this episode, Christian and I are joined by our guest co-host, Curt Blattman, as we look to the Bible for answers to this controversial question so that you will not stumble over God's plan for your life but rest assured in his promises and provision. Our Guest Bio: Curt Blattman, http://bibleapologetics.org/ (Curt's Website) Hello. My name is Curt Blattman. I grew up and have spent my whole life living in New York City. I am 69 years old and am married to the love of my life, Meiying. I have one daughter, Desirae, who is 37 years old and lives and works in New Jersey. Back around 1980 I started on an intense quest to find out what the purpose of life was. I was an atheist back then but after being exposed to the gospel message of Jesus I began to realize that I was a sinner and after six months of learning more about God, on October 12, 1981, I gave my heart to Jesus. Today, 40 years later, I have grown so much in my love of the Lord. My first career was as a banker at JP Morgan Chase. My second career was as a counselor at the Bowery Mission. And now my third career is as a traveling apologist. I have an Economics degree from Princeton University, an MBA in Finance from New York University, and a master's degree in Apologetics from Biola University.

EPISODE 92 - Broken to Boldness LLC was created as an avenue to bring more awareness to domestic abuse.  Completing my first novel, “Torched - Burnt By a Gaslighter”, is a fictionalized story based on actual events showing the impact of gaslighting on the victim and their families. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 43 million women and 38 million men will experience mental or emotional abuse by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Many are afraid to leave these abusive relationships for a variety of reasons - fear, shame, embarrassment, lack of education or job skills, or even because they have nowhere to go.  I know these feelings all too well as I, too, experienced gaslighting (verbal abuse).  It's time to stop the abuse!This website will be a source for education and resources to help educate on recognizing the red flags and provide avenues to empower those wanting to safely leave these relationships. Please check back often for the latest informationFrom the book: Martha celebrates a milestone birthday with her family and wonders whether her life has made the difference that she sought to make in this world all those years ago. But questions linger for Martha on the impact of her decision to leave her husband. Was it the best decision?  How would her life be different now?  What about the lives of her children?Falling in love and marrying at a young age, Martha was not aware of gaslighting and its impact until seventeen years and three kids later, when a suicide attempt brought the abuse to the surface.  What decision did Martha make to save her family?Now years later, as Martha takes her four-year-old grandchild, Sydney, to the park, Martha meets Liz, a young woman with two small children.  Martha quickly realizes that Liz is in an abusive relationship and tries to help Liz until tragedy strikes.Griffiths reminds us that we are all susceptible to domestic abuse as it can be easily disguised as “love” by the perpetrator.  It cuts right into the core of our human need to love and be loved and distorts any possibility of a healthy relationship.Deborah Griffiths was born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area. She graduated with honors from Biola University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Organizational Leadership. This degree helped her advance in the homeowners association industry, where she has written several articles on common interest developments.Always trying to broaden her horizons, Deborah chose to write her first novel revolving around the trauma inflicted by gaslighting. This novel is a fictionalized story of a woman's quest to successfully rebuild her life with grace and courage following a painful divorce where she was a victim of domestic abuse. Deborah is the proud mother of three grown children and considers her faith and family most important.  She enjoys reading, needlework, genealogy, and playing “at” golf in her spare time.___https://livingthenextchapter.com/podcast produced by: https://truemediasolutions.ca/Have a podcast and need a great website?

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a popular and fast-growing new movement of Christians who emphasize signs and wonders and teach that God is giving new revelation through new apostles and prophets today. Some churches associated with those teachings have even become household names—you've probably heard of the widely influential Bethel Church, for example. But are NAR teachings consistent with the historic Christian faith? That's the question my guest today, Holly Pivec, seeks to answer in her new book, Counterfeit Kingdom: The Dangers of New Revelation, New Prophets, and New Age Practices in the Church, which she co-authored with Biola professor Douglas Geivett.Holly is a blogger, author, and speaker, as well as a pastor's wife and homeschooling mom.

A natural networker, Todd has had the opportunity to build bridges with leaders and communities across the nation. In collaboration with the Exponential Conference, Todd co-authored the book, “Empowered,” which offers pastoral perspectives on life and leadership in the Spirit.

Episode Summary. In a recent book published by the Gospel Coalition, Thaddeus Williams of Biola University argues that the church's lack of concern for economic and social justice as a primary reason that many of those raised in Christian homes are deconstructing their faith. He writes, “The conclusion that Christianity is hardly the beacon of social justice that it should be is a common theme in many deconstruction stories.” “Instead of advocating for the poor by embracing economic justice, today's church,” it is argued, “embraces capitalistic greed which oppresses the poor.” No teen raised in a Christian home wants to be part of a movement that oppresses the poor. No wonder so many are jettisoning biblical Christianity in favor of joining “social justice” ideologies that they believe support the poor instead of American consumerism. So, are American Christians enslaved to consumerism and affluence? Is Christianity guilty of neglecting the poor? And is ECONOMIC EQUALITY something that justice-loving people should pursue? This episode answers these tree questions.Questions for Guiding the Rising Generation to think about this material. How would you answer the charge that Christians are guilty of neglecting the poor?How would you respond to the statement, “Rich people having more means that poor people have less.”How would you respond to the statement, “Socialism follows the pattern of the early church in Acts 4.How would you answer the charge that capitalism is evil because it is based on greed?Resources Used for Today's PodcastI want to especially highlight the excellent series from the Colson Center, “What Would You Say.” This series addresses numerous worldview issues biblically, succinctly, and with logical clarity.

One is to embrace and celebrate doubt as a virtuous and infallible foundation for epistemological bliss.

On this week's episode I have an eye-opening conversation with pastor and New York Times best-selling author, John Burke, about his research into the stories of people who have had near-death experiences and how it links to what the Bible teaches about heaven. If you're thinking, “wait a minute…that's weird” I get it. John does, too, which is why he is committed to having scripture inform our view of heaven, first and foremost. And, to ease your mind, even more, you should know that “Imagine Heaven” was endorsed by some of the world's foremost biblical scholars, like JP Moreland, Ph.D. at Biola University  (not the same JP as my hubby) and Gary Habermas, Ph.D. department chair at Liberty University.  But here's the most important thing: when we understand what the Bible teaches about Heaven it transforms how we relate to God here on Earth! I think you're going to have more than a few “ah-ha” moments as you listen to today's show. I know I did.  Heaven is real and God wants us to be prepared to live with Him there forever.  xo, Donna John Burke is the founder and lead pastor of Gateway Church, a multi-site church based in Austin, Texas, which has grown to more than 4,500 people since its start in 1998. He is also the president of Gateway Leadership Initiative, a non-profit organization working to help church-planting pastors and ordinary Christians “raise the church out of the culture.” John has authored several books, including No Perfect People Allowed, Soul Revolution, and The New York Times best-seller Imagine Heaven. He and his wife, Kathy, have two young adult children.

From 2008-2012, Dr. Slattery served at Focus on the Family writing, teaching, and co-hosting the Focus on the Family Broadcast. In 2012, she left Focus on the Family to start Authentic Intimacy, a ministry devoted to reclaiming God's design for sexuality. In 2020, Juli launched SexualDiscipleship.com, a platform designed to help Christian leaders navigate sexual issues and questions with gospel-centered truth. Juli is the author of twelve books, including the newly released "God, Sex, and Your Marriage," and host of the weekly podcast “Java with Juli.” Juli and her husband Mike are the parents of 3 sons; they live in Akron, Ohio. On today's episode, she and Sathiya explore the true meaning of Biblical sexuality, and why this conversation spans far beyond "don't have sex before marriage" and "God designed sex, therefore sex is good." Specifically, Juli explains how the broader narrative of scripture enables us to understand more specific scriptures that address matters related to sex, why everything in creation is designed to reveal God (sex included), and how a Biblical approach to sex permits us to embrace our sexuality rather than avoid it. In the second half, the interview talks about how leaders can both get the help they deserve while also helping those in their realm of care and responsibility get the help they deserve. Dr. Juli is a wealth of knowledge – if you have any interest in better understanding your sexuality through a biblical lens, this episode was made for you.

Today's show rundown: Made in America, heard round the world - Chuck and Mark are back again. We start the show talking bout Giorgia Meloni, Italy's new PM. She is dedicated to traditional family values, opposes gender ideology and the LGBT lobby, backs strong borders and seeks an end to unlimited mass migration. She is saying things that Republicans here are afraid to say. The Left is losing their mind!!! Mark introduces us to our guest Kristina Karamo, a Black woman running on the Republican ticket for Secretary of State in Michigan, possible the first Black Woman running for SoS. The Left is doing everything they can to spread lies about her, so it really goes to show you how they say they re sticking up for the Black Community, but if you disagree with their Marxism...they will do everything in their power to tear you down. The Left is calling her a conspiracy theorist, and an election denier, or anti Semitic for trying to criticize George Soros. Is the current Secretary of State in MI connected to George Soros - Kristina says yes, and she goes into explaining how corrupt many of these institutions are, being given money openly by a Soros Pac. Chuck says we are under attack. The family, academia, everything we know to be TRUE American - is being attacked from every possible angle. We revisit that it is the Democratic plan to remove the Father from the Black Family in America. https://www.bridgemi.com/michigan-government/proposal-1-michigan-what-term-limits-ballot-measure-would-change https://kristinakaramo.com/ BIO: Kristina is an educator, mother of two, and proud Christian patriot from Oak Park, Michigan. Kristina is running for Michigan Secretary of State to fight to make sure that elections are decided by legal votes (not manipulation and corruption), and to improve DMV service for all Michigan citizens. More broadly, as Secretary of State Kristina will work to restore the rule of law and earn back the trust of Michigan citizens in our government. A believer in servant-based public service, Kristina looks to the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, with its focus on limited government and the protection of the inalienable rights of the American people. Committed Public Servant. Kristina currently leads a research team – comprised of former Secretary of State personnel – investigating the “governmental pathologies” which prevent the Office of the Secretary of State from operating according to the rule of law. This team holds a complete operational understanding of election system failures and inefficiencies, and forms the basis of Kristina's day-one policy team.
