God Himself rested and told us to do likewise.
Tom Sine's most recent book (co-authored with Dwight Friesen) is 2020s Foresight: Three Vital Practices for Thriving in a Decade of Accelerating Change.Tom Sine has been doing future forecasting for many decades and has helped lots of churches think about what is happening in their communities now so that they can make plans as they anticipate what is coming in the next several years.Tom also thinks a lot about the younger generations and how their presence and activity will shape our society in the coming years and decades. And what I love about Tom's knowledge of the younger generations is that it is based not only on research, but on relationships. We talk about all of this in this episode of Spiritual Life and Leadership.THIS EPISODE'S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:Tom Sine's most recent book (co-authored with Dwight Friesen) is 2020s Foresight: Three Vital Practices for Thriving in a Decade of Accelerating Change.For 28 years, Tom taught a course at Fuller Theological Seminary's Seattle extension called “Christian World View in Rapidly Changing Times.”Tom Sine explains why churches today have a difficult time connecting with Gen Y and Gen Z.Tom shares an example of young people who made a difference in their community.Younger generations may be dropping off from the church because they are more concerned about social issues. And they may not see the church engaging in the issues that matter to them.To begin engaging in forecasting, it is helpful to talk to business leaders in our churches.Tom Sine says we need to move beyond charity to real serious neighborhood empowerment.Gen Y and Gen Z will not be able to afford homes as nice as their parents.Tom Sine recommends we come up with creative living arrangements.On May 10, 2023, Tom Sine will be doing a webinar together with Tod Bolsinger titled, "Leadership and the Challenges Facing our Neighbors Today and Tomorrow: Your Community's Pain, Your Calling.” Registration info is coming soon.RELEVANT RESOURCES AND LINKS:Books mentioned:2020s Foresight: Three Vital Practices for Thriving in a Decade of Accelerating Change, by Ton Sine and Dwight FriesenLive Like You Give a Damn: Join the Changemaking Celebration, by Tom SineBlog:Christine Sine - www.godspacelight.comRelated episodes:Episode 118: Forecasting and Innovation, with Tom Sine and Dwight Friesen, co-authors of 2020s ForesightLearn how to lead your church into ministry that matters.

The Christian worldview is challenged like never before in American culture. With a majority of kids leaving the faith after they leave the nest, Christian parents need to prioritize establishing a biblical worldview in the lives of our children. Our kids can't keep what they don't own, and they can't own what they haven't received. But how do we teach our kids the Christian worldview? What foundational principles need to be covered and how do we break it down for young minds to grasp? Catherine's guest in this episode is an expert at teaching the Christian worldview to children. Elizabeth Urbanowicz holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding materials that effectively met this need, she created a curriculum that did. Foundation Worldview exists to equip Christian parents with the resources they need to train children to soundly interpret Scripture, carefully evaluate every idea they encounter, and understand the truth of the biblical worldview. Elizabeth firmly believes that the Christian youth exodus can be a thing of the past. When kids are equipped to soundly interpret Scripture, they will quickly develop a biblical worldview. When kids are taught to think well, they can carefully evaluate the messages they are exposed to each day.

GUEST: JEREMY WALKER, pastor and writer/presenter, Revival documentary filmThe term “revival” conveys the idea of “coming back to life” or “increasing in strength or intensity”. The word doesn't appear in Scripture and yet there were times in the Bible or in history when Christians and churches revived spiritually, characterized by such things as fervent repentance of sin, earnest pleading in prayer, deep commitment to holiness, and boldness in proclaiming the truth and the gospel.Christians were revived, nonbelievers were saved, and even communities were impacted with the good graces of God.This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will look back in history to examine what led to times of revival, such as the Reformation in Europe and the Great Awakening in America.Jeremy Walker will be our guest. Jeremy is the pastor of Maidenbower Baptist Church in Crawley, England and the writer and host of a brand new documentary film entitled “Revival: The Work of God”, which surveys great times of revival in the United Kingdom and the United States, featuring both well-known and lesser-known people and places.We will also discuss what is being called a revival on the campus of Asbury University, a Christian liberal arts college in Wilmore, KY. For over two weeks, first students and then others from around the country have gathered continually in an auditorium for mostly music and prayer.------------------------Related Article:Holy FOMO?Related Resource:REVIVAL: The Work of God
Jesus Was Not God Prior To His Birth and Exaltation To The Godhead! -----Books: Amazon.com/Richard-A-Hardin/e/B09J2YHCVBEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org Weekly: M-F, 7-8AM; Sat-Sun, 6-8 AM (CST)rahardin.com -Bio, 18 Videos, Podcasts***** I will discuss mercy, then the relationship of mercy and truth in the Old Testament (OT) which shows that Jesus did not live or serve in the OT, except for the days He walked on Earth. Jesus only became exalted to the fullness of Godhead, Trinity, after His death and then He became the third part of the Trinity after His resurrection. I will show from Scripture there was no grace in the OT: Grace and Truth came by Jesus. God and His Spoken Word, Christ, was the full expression of the Godhead in the OT, look at Psalms 25:10, "ALL the paths of the Lord are Mercy and Truth unto such as keep His Covenant and His Testimonies." and Isaiah 59:21, "As for Me, this is My Covenant with them, saith the Lord; My Spirit (Mercy) that is upon thee, and My Words(Truth) which I have put in thy mouth,..". When Jesus was exalted to the fullness of the Godhead, the Trinity of God came into existence: God the Father, Jesus the Son and Their Spoken Living Word, Christ. This is very different than what is being presently taught as the "Christian World View." Jesus, the man, died on the cross for our sin sacrifice because the Spirit of Christ left Him when He cried out, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Jesus the man then died and paid the sin sacrifice for us! That is why God was so pleased with the man Jesus and exalted Him through just being our mediator, to being fully God in the fullness of the Godhead! on @KLRNRadio.com 6AM CST Sat #GPWF #Christian & on rahardin.com anytime or speak to Alexa and say, "Play God's Pure Word of Faith.

Why "Bad" Happens to "Good" People? ---Tue---rahardin.com-- Bio, PodsMy Books: Amazon.com/Richard-A-Hardin/e/B09J2YHCVB****Richard Hardin, POBox 45684, OKC, OK 73145.****There are many very important subjects which are not being taught in the Christian community or Christian World View, and there are many that are being taught incorrectly on false beliefs, and some popular beliefs that are made up and have no mention whatsoever in the Bible . Why do such bad things happen to "good" people? AND why do such "good" things happen to "bad" people???****There are 5 kind of people in the world for this message: (First) Children or anyone who has not come to the age, time, or mental accountability to God. There are (2 kind) of non-Christians: Some who are right now seeking God, and others who are willfully rejecting God, and there are (2 kind) of Christians: Some who are being lazy, carnal, babes in Christ who are not really seeking a closer fellowship with God, but are maybe going to church doing things which look good outwardly, 2 Chronicles 12:14, says Rehoboam, “Did evil because he prepared not his heart to seek the Lord.” And the Fifth group are Christians who are seeking their holy calling of 2 Tim 1:9, “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.” It is not our position to judge what happens to others, but Active Christians will be sharing their changed heart born again experience and the gospel with others as much as they can because they know the seriousness for those who will suffer eternity without Christ! ***Which are you? on @KLRNRadio.com CST 7 AM Tue #GPWF #Christian & at rahardin.com

“Hope” in Scripture can be defined as the believer's assurance that the blessings God promises for the future will occur. It's joyful expectation of an unrealized future reality. The greatest, most joy-producing promise that God has made is that His Son Jesus Christ is going to return to earth to bring His followers to heaven for eternity.1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.”Whether you believe this describes the rapture of church-age believers or simply the second coming of Christ to resurrect believers to rule and reign with him, the result is the same—Christ will raise the earthly bodies of believers (whether dead or alive), transform the perishable bodies into imperishable bodies, reuniting the soul and spirit with the imperishable body to spend eternity in heaven.Why is this the greatest hope? Because eternity in the presence of God is the greatest blessing, especially in light of the alternative—unending torment in the lake of fire. Listen to how Jesus describes the eternity of hell: “If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.” (Mark 9:47-48).There is no more poignant, rubber-meets-the-road test of what you believe, what your hope is, than when a loved one dies or when you are facing death yourself.How can one have assurance of going to heaven rather than doubt or dread of hell? How can one have faith in a realm that we can't see or touch? Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as we discuss the trustworthy God who will keep His greatest promise.

In "Hate for Eight" he reveals that by watering down the gospel the commercials earned only despite from the "woke" crowd, the demographic the people behind the ads spent $20 million trying to reach.

This program is a rebroadcast from 08/27/22GUEST: TRAVIS ALLEN, pastor, Grace Church (Greeley, CO)As our society rejects God, so it rejects God's call for what a man is to be. The biblical call for men to be providers for their home, loving leaders of their wives and children, and strong and courageous in word and deed is misrepresented as “toxic masculinity”, “sexist”, and “patriarchal”. Even when a man offers sound advice and direction, especially to a woman, it's criticized as “mansplaining.”Add to this the influence of feminism and homosexuality in our culture and the impact is seen all around us today—men who have no idea what God calls them to be.God created men and women of equal value and yet with certain character qualities and roles which are to be more prominent depending on whether male or female. This is a complementary design by God, resulting in joy for us and glory for Him.Travis Allen joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview radio program to discuss God's call for men. Travis is pastor of Grace Church in Greeley, CO, married with five children, and served in the U.S. Navy as a member of the SEAL teams. But as you will hear, it's not one's ability to fire weapons or fast-rope from a helicopter that makes a godly man but rather allegiance and obedience to Christ and His Word.

Author, speaker, and coach Allen Arnold, my guest on this episode of the Thriving Christian Artist, says that there are two worldviews we can live in as Christians. One is what most folks, even most Christians, seem to experience - a worldview where God is an intangible presence whom we hope to please but who is ultimately detached from our daily lives. The other worldview is the one shared by Adam and Even way back in the Garden of Eden - a worldview where God is walking with us and connected to us in a real, ever-present way. Allen says the challenge Christians face is to move from that more detached worldview to what he calls The Eden Option. It's the option we were always meant to live in, the option that was lost with Adam and Eve's failings in the face of temptation, but it's something we can return to. And as artists, that will mean going from trying to be creative for God to co-creating with God. Allen and I talk about the four-fold framework of returning to the Eden Option, and you'll be inspired by this life-changing message. Take a listen! You can read more about “The Eden Option” book (and buy a copy for yourself!) on Allen's website.

We know that something is wrong with the world, but how do we fix it? We understand that we are broken people who have lost our way, but what is the cure? The Christian worldview not only diagnoses man's fundamental problem, it also offers the solution. The cure and solution to our predicament is grace, which comes through the person of Jesus Christ alone!
In this introduction to the Book of Jude, we examine the author, date, recipients and context of the letter as well as the similarities between the churches Jude is addressing and the Amercian Christian Church. We also discuss the importance of developing a Christian Worldview and the dangers and influence of the culturally syncretistic form of Christianity that has infiltrated the American church. This hodge podge of beliefs under the guise of Christianity has weakened the church, robbed it of its spiritual power and its spiritual influence. Join us for this important introduction to a timely and very relevant book for today's church. From Jude 1-4.

GUEST: DR. STEVEN LAWSON, author, New Life in ChristConfusion characterizes our world. Or maybe delusion is the better word, in that people are deluded by others or just self-deluded.There are no shortage of “experts”—politicians, scientists, teachers, professors, writers, speakers, journalists, analysts, commentators, influencers, and yes, Christian leaders—confidently making assertions about all matters of life and faith.So if you're pondering what is going wrong in the world, you will hear all kinds of responses—“racism, inequality, lack of education, capitalistic greed, moral corruption”—with all manner of proposed solutions, mostly promoting some new government program or law or political candidate.Despite all the talk, confusion and delusion still reign. People don't know who or what to believe about what's going on and don't understand the root cause of the problems.Because all of Scripture is inspired by the holy and perfect God, Christians have a foundation for discerning truth from error, right from wrong, and wisdom from foolishness.Dr. Steven Lawson, president of OnePassion Ministries, expository preacher, and author of New Life in Christ: What Really Happens When You're Born Again and Why It Matters, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss:What is going on in the world right now?Why has there been division over the issue of “social justice”?What does it mean to be born again?Please join us for this important program.
All is not right with the world. Why is that? How do we make sense of evil, suffering and conflict? The Christian worldview provides an answer.

Today we are going to be talking about “Equipping children to explore the topics of truth, God, and life, from the biblical worldview.” Children today are faced with so much information coming from so many different places. The world perspective understands that reaching our children with worldly ideas, in many cases, guarantees that they will have teens and adults hooked with philosophies that do not line up with Christian values and beliefs. Reaching children at a young age is key to helping kids discern and compare the current culture to what the Bible teaches and then carrying biblical thinking into their teen and adult years. It's so important as parents, to understand that the world is changing at a rapid pace and young minds are very impressionable, so being mindful of teaching our young children early about the Christian Worldview and comparing the information they receive with the truth of Christianity is critical. Our guest today, Elizabeth Urbanowicz, founder and CEO of Foundation Worldview, is a wealth of practical tips and tools for parents and other Christian adults as they equip children to understand and believe the truth of God.

GUEST: COLLEEN TRONSON, Executive Director, Metro Women's CenterAmericans like to think of our nation and people as “exceptional”, providing an example of goodness, charity, even Christianity, to the rest of the world. There is some truth to this. America has been immeasurably blessed in resources and liberties and has spread innovation and freedom across the world.But if we are honest, this nation has also become perhaps the greatest consumer and exporter of moral wickedness, such as sexual immorality in its many forms and the murder of pre-born children.Consider the 1973 Supreme Court decision called Roe v. Wade that led to abortion—the intentional murder of pre-born human beings—becoming legal in this country. A mind-numbing 63 million pre-born babies have been killed since then. That is nearly 20% of the current population of the United States.No matter how it's rationalized—“women's health care”, “my body, my choice”, “reproductive rights”—the reality is that, every day, pregnant women enter hospitals and clinics where abortionists kill or dismember and extract pre-born human beings.The Bible says about the pre-born child: “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:13-14).There was great celebration by those who oppose abortion when Roe v. Wade was overturned in the summer of 2022. But alas, Satan never relents in fomenting sin and evil in the hearts of humans. With abortion now being a matter for each state to decide, extreme bills are being pushed through state legislatures that remove almost all limits on abortion. Our home state of Minnesota is currently passing one of the most radical abortion bills in the country.Colleen Tronson, executive director of Metro Women's Center in Minnesota, joins us on The Christian Worldview to discuss how the abortion landscape is changing, the rise of the abortion pill, and how Christians can get involved to save lives and proclaim the hope of the gospel.-------------------"180" Film from Ray Comfort.

The UniParty Swamp is in charge in Washington DC. Meanwhile, most pastors across America are focused on filling the pews by filling the ears of their flock with lukewarm teachings and life coach anecdotes.America is in desperate need of people like Christian conservative rapper Bryson Gray. We need a boldness that is greater than the fanatics of wokeness. We need to be more cunning than the RINOs leading the GOP with their Democrat buddies. We need the type of dedication to Judeo-Christian values that climate change cultists have for their religion.We need spiritual, cultural, and political revival, and we need it now. On today's episode of The JD Rucker Show, I will be interviewing Gray about the various ills that face our nation. He has quickly built a brand that goes far beyond his rise to fame with the "Let's Go Brandon" song. He tells it like he sees it and nobody is above reproach.I'll also be discussing the debt ceiling, economic challenges, and the globalist machinations of Pope Francis. It should be a controversial show that has the potential to be truly epic.
Every worldview must account for life's biggest questions. When it comes to the questions of "who am I", "why am I here", and "how can we know right and wrong" we find that Christianity teaches that we were created by a loving God, to give Him glory, and that God provides a solid foundation for morality. In this message we go all the way back to the beginning in order to see how the doctrine of creation informs our Christian worldview in both a theological and practical way. (1-22-23)
Filter: Biblical Clarity in a Confusing World
In John 3, Jesus told Nicodemus that in order to enter the Kingdom of God one must be born of water and of the Spirit. Later in the book of Acts, we read about Christians being baptized and receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Baptism in the Spirit is a theological topic many believers are unaware of or unclear on. Depending on your church background, the issue might be accompanied by baggage from bad teaching. My guest on today's show is here to help us have clarity and understanding on this conversation. His name is Joe Miller and we discussed his latest book One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism: Spirit Baptism and Christian Unity. J. R. Miller (PhD; DMin) is Assistant Professor of Christian Worldview & Worldview Lead at Grand Canyon University. Dr. Miller co-founded The Center for Cultural Apologetics and served on the Academic Advisory Council for the Center for Biblical Unity. He is also an avid podcaster and blogger at MoreThanCake.org. Joe and his wife Suzanne enjoy life with their three sons in Phoenix, AZ.

Why "Bad" Happens to "Good" People? ---Mon---rahardin.com-- Bio, PodsMy Books: Amazon.com/Richard-A-Hardin/e/B09J2YHCVB****Richard Hardin, POBox 45684, OKC, OK 73145.****There are many very important subjects which are not being taught in the Christian community or Christian World View, and there are many that are being taught incorrectly on false beliefs, and some popular beliefs that are made up and have no mention whatsoever in the Bible . Why do such bad things happen to "good" people? AND why do such "good" things happen to "bad" people???****There are 5 kind of people in the world for this message: (First) Children or anyone who has not come to the age, time, or mental accountability to God. There are (2 kind) of non-Christians: Some who are right now seeking God, and others who are willfully rejecting God, and there are (2 kind) of Christians: Some who are being lazy, carnal, babes in Christ who are not really seeking a closer fellowship with God, but are maybe going to church doing things which look good outwardly, 2 Chronicles 12:14, says Rehoboam, “Did evil because he prepared not his heart to seek the Lord.” And the Fifth group are Christians who are seeking their holy calling of 2 Tim 1:9, “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.” It is not our position to judge what happens to others, but Active Christians will be sharing their changed heart born again experience and the gospel with others as much as they can because they know the seriousness for those who will suffer eternity without Christ! ***Which are you? on @KLRNRadio.com CST 7 AM /Mon #GPWF #Christian & at rahardin.com
A few months ago, a group called Humanists International updated their “defining statement of World Humanism.” If nothing else, secular humanism is a cautionary tale for Christians who think of the Christian faith as a kind of humanist project.

GUEST: PETER McCULLOUGH, MD MPH, cardiologist and author, The Courage to Face COVID-19 In early 2020, news reports began to emerge of a new virus from China spreading across the globe called COVID-19. Carried across the ocean via airline passengers, Americans began to catch the respiratory virus with a small percentage even dying of complications. Fear and panic spread even faster than the virus. Would this be the next black plague, which killed 30% to 60% of all Europeans?Medical authorities like the CDC, NIH, and WHO recommended a near-shutdown of society and federal, state, and local governments implemented mandatory masking, physical distancing, closures of businesses, schools, and churches, strictures on travel, and much more. At first we were told to stay put for “15 days to stop the spread”…which turned into more than two years of unprecedented restrictions.2020 just happened (wink, wink) to be a presidential election year. President Donald Trump had led the country to energy independence and a robust economy and looked the heavy favorite to win a second term. But the hysteria created over COVID-19 narrowed the focus of the country to only one issue—“save me from COVID” despite the fact that a small percentage of people who contracted COVID actually died from it.Voting regulations were slackened to allow people to vote early and by mail so there wouldn't be crowding of the polls on election day. Career politician Joe Biden, who hardly campaigned due to fear of COVID, unbelievably (in the literal sense of the word) garnered 81 million votes, the most of any president in history.In late 2020, an experimental-use COVID vaccine was quickly rolled out. This was a new kind of vaccine, not manufactured from a dead virus as usual, but with an mRNA genetic substance that had never been used on the general public. No worries though—videos and photos of public officials and celebrities rolling up their sleeve to receive the shot were meant to assure the public that “the science” had saved us again.The marketing campaign for all Americans to get the shot was relentless. Everyone, and I mean everyone, even those who were not in “susceptible demographics” (old or underlying health problems) were told that getting the vaccine would keep you from getting or transmitting the virus (a lie). Professing Christians like NIH director Francis Collins and Ed Stetzer shamed and guilted Christians that getting the vaccine was about “loving your neighbor”. In the end, 80% of Americans received at least one dose of the vaccine.More could be said, much more actually, but here we are now in early 2023, two years after the release of the vaccine, and chilling reports and videos are surfacing daily of the vaccinated falling over and dying suddenly, typically from cardiac arrest. Suppressed by the media and dismissed by authorities as “disinformation”, the occurrences are indisputable that something has gone terribly wrong.Peter McCullough, MD MPH is our guest today on The Christian Worldview to discuss if the COVID vaccine is causing sudden and excessive deaths. He is a highly respected cardiologist who developed an early treatment protocol for COVID that has saved tens of thousands of lives (including my own parents). For that, and now his stand against the vaccine, Dr. McCullough has been vilified and ostracized by the mainstream medical community.-----------------Related Resources:The Courage to Face COVID by John Leake and Peter McCullough, MD MPH

The Counter Culture Mom Show with Tina Griffin Podcast
A worldview is the conceptual lens through which we see and interpret the world around us and understand our place in it. According to Tawa Anderson, a Biblical worldview is absolutely essential in a Christian's life, but so many people don't realize how powerfully their worldviews are intertwined with their day-to-day living behaviors. More importantly, these behaviors might not line up with scripture. Tawa is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics and the author of the book, An Introduction to Christian Worldview. He shares his perspective on the impact of individual worldviews and presents his thoughts about the hit Christian series The Chosen, centered on the life of Jesus. TAKEAWAYS It's hard, but not impossible, to lead someone to salvation who doesn't realize that they are lost We need to understand and analyze the worldviews around us so we know how to share Jesus with those that have different beliefs We must constantly compare our current views with what scripture says to make sure they align A Biblical worldview should include reflection, adjustment, an analysis of behavior, culture shaping, and an understanding of personal values
