Spiritual — Religious — or Christian?

Wednesday 23rd June 2021
Paper or plastic? The answer boils down to personal preference.  Many seeing the shortcomings of Christianity say, “I’m spiritual, but I’m not religious and I’m not Christian.” Is being spiritual good enough?  Is it the same kind of personal preference as “Paper or Plastic?”

Religion is Not Enough – Part 2

Tuesday 22nd June 2021

Needed: Fathers Who are More than Just “Nice Guys”

Friday 18th June 2021

In Christ, fathers can be gracious without being weak, courageous but not insipid, and strong without being overbearing. As we honor earthly fathers let’s consider what God can do in and through them.

Our Father

Thursday 17th June 2021

Fatherhood has fallen on hard times. This Father’s Day we need the viewpoint of God as self-imparting Father wholly devoted to those to whom he gives life.

Fatherhood

Wednesday 16th June 2021
Fathers just barely came out on top in a survey of 6-year-olds who were asked which they’d miss most:  their favorite TV program or their father.  In this age of a typical child-man media father that answer is tragic.  But that’s not the kind of Father God is.

The New Deal, Part 2 – Why We Desperately Need the New Covenant

Tuesday 15th June 2021
Greg explores the vast chasm between the old covenant and the new covenant and why we desparately need the new covenant.  In Jesus, God came to change everything — giving us a new and much better deal.  Don’t miss this program!

The New Deal, Part 1 – God’s New Covenant

Monday 14th June 2021
Within Christianity there is much confusion about the old and new covenants — about what they are and about how a Christian relates to those covenants.  Hear Greg today as he talks about the new covenant in the first of a two program series called – The New Deal.

Taking the Easy Way Out

Friday 11th June 2021

Jesus tells us to travel the narrow road of life and avoid the broad road that leads to destruction. Is it only the “eat, drink and be merry” folks on that broad road leading to destruction? Could religious legalists also be on it?

Why Cults are Successful — Part 4

Thursday 10th June 2021
The heretical basis for almost all cults is their legalism and religionism, their works-based approach to salvation with an emphasis on keeping the rules.  These are critical and major perversions of the biblical teaching that Jesus equals salvation – period.

Why Cults are Successful — Part 3

Wednesday 9th June 2021
Cults, new age groups and religion in general – as distinct from NT Christianity – thrive in the spiritual wilderness of our society where the gospel of Jesus Christ has been devalued by our culture.

Why Cults are Successful — Part 2

Tuesday 8th June 2021
The message of Jesus Christ has been perverted and twisted into unbelievable ideas yet tens of millions of people are caught up in these cultic beliefs, in part, because cults use manipulative bait-and-switch tactics.

Why Cults are Successful — Part 1

Monday 7th June 2021
It’s been said many times — cults and cultic ideas are the unfinished business of the church — that if the church did a better job, cults wouldn’t be growing so fast. Do you agree? Just why are cults so successful? Don’t miss this first of a 4 program series on cults.

The Deadly Fruit of Legalism, Part 2 – The Problem and the Solution

Friday 4th June 2021

Legalism can turn us into hard hearted, narrow minded, spiteful and judgmental people. It’s a serious problem for Christians because it separates us from the intimacy with Christ and others we were meant to have. In this program Greg talks about the good news that Jesus Christ is.

The Deadly Fruit of Legalism, Part 1 — Legalism’s Disguises

Thursday 3rd June 2021

Christians You Don’t Recognize — Part 2

Wednesday 2nd June 2021
Fact:  Many Christians think they are better than others; there are other Christians they don’t even recognize.  Fact:  Some church and religious movements have persuaded their followers that they are superior to others.  Fact:  Being better and superior is not the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Christians You Don’t Recognize — Part 1

Tuesday 1st June 2021
Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.  Protestants don’t recognize the Pope as the head of the church and Christians who believe alcohol is a sin do not recognize each other in a liquor store.  If there are other Christians you do not recognize, you need to listen to this program.

After Grace — Then What?

Monday 31st May 2021

Grace is totally unmerited pardon. It is forgiveness of our sins no matter what we have done — it can’t be earned in any way. But what is life like after that? How then should we live?

Wine Into Water

Friday 28th May 2021

Jesus changed water into wine. It was the best wine and it was saved for last. People have been trying to reverse the process and change wine into water ever since. Why is the story of this miracle in the Bible? What should we learn from it?

Religion is Counterfeit Christianity

Thursday 27th May 2021

Jesus came to save us from religion, the belief that if we work hard and long enough God will like us — that we must obtain salvation through our own efforts. Religion is one reason Christ died on the cross.

Weird Ideas Are Out There

Wednesday 26th May 2021

It usually starts with a sincere desire to please or appease God. But the result is a cult — a tight, “holy huddle” trying to keep sin on the outside and goodness on the inside. Such isolation leads to weird ideas.

Couch Potato Christianity

Tuesday 25th May 2021
Is it possible to be a “Couch Potato Christian”?  The Bible says that our citizenship is in heaven and that we’re not to be conformed to this world.  What does that mean for the role of a Christian in society?  Don’t miss this vital discussion of practical Christianity.

Hope In Christ

Monday 24th May 2021
What are your hopes?  Does your future look bleak?  It was that way for the disciples for awhile.  Their hopes were dashed after Jesus’ crucifixion but intensely re-ignited after his resurrection.  Similarly the only real hope for our future is in Christ and his resurrection.

Lost and Found

Friday 21st May 2021
The Prodigal in the Parable of the Lost Son “comes to himself” and returns home.  He is met on the way by his eagerly welcoming father, and there is great rejoicing over the son who “was lost and is found.”

Who Is This Jesus?

Thursday 20th May 2021
Don’t miss our dramaticized interviews with Zaccheus, the woman at the well, the woman taken in adultery and the apostle Peter for their perspectives about Jesus.  He changed their lives and continues to change lives today.  Be sure to listen!

The Cost of Discipleship — Sacrifice

Wednesday 19th May 2021
Jesus said, “Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”  Jesus tells us to follow him.  He laid down his life for us.  Authentic Christianity involves laying down your life for others.

Giving More Than You Get

Tuesday 18th May 2021
Love or bean-counting?  Mary extravagantly anoints Jesus with expensive perfume as a gift of love.  Judas complained, “It might have been sold.”  Our world is much like Judas, considering the monetary value of everything and being blinded to love.  What do you see?

The King and His Kingdom

Monday 17th May 2021

Jesus’ presence and his essence defines the kingdom of heaven – an entirely different kind of kingdom.

The Hall of Faith

Friday 14th May 2021
We love lists:  The top 10…the top 40… and various halls of fame.  Did you know that the Bible has “The Hall of Faith”?  It’s a list of those who lived with spiritual vision and understood faith as a verb.  Who’s on it — and why?  Be sure to listen for the answers.

Don’t Give Up!

If you’re at the end of your rope with everything coming unglued, if you’re grieving, if you’re going through a time of turbulence or rage — don’t give up!  Greg points us to the Source of encouragement, strength, refuge, tranquility, serenity — to an ever-present help in trouble.

Paper or Plastic?

Tuesday 11th May 2021

The Lion and the Lamb

Monday 10th May 2021

Jars of Clay – and Mothers

Friday 7th May 2021

As we celebrate mothers, we explore the nature of God. We learn that it is the very nature of God to place his grace in places thought to be humanly improbable or impossible.

God and Mothers

Thursday 6th May 2021

While there is no greater physical place of ministry, position or power than that of a mother, we can learn a great deal about our heavenly Father as we honor our earthly mothers.

The Creator and His Assistants

Wednesday 5th May 2021

Mothers ARE God’s life giving assistants. This is a day to honor our Mothers and all who have helped us along the way. It’s also a time to remember those who assist God as he re-births people as children of God.

Two Kinds of Christians

Which kind of Christian are you?  Are you someone who wants to be saved but are not sure if you have been, or are you a Christian who knows that you’ve been saved?  This is vital understanding.  Don’t miss this program!

God Told Me…

Gratitude

Friday 30th April 2021

Human nature doesn’t like to say, “Thank you,” but for Christians gratitude is an attitude of mind — a key element of Christianity. Take a listen.

The Gratification Temptation

Thursday 29th April 2021
How are you seeking to be satisfied?  Is it by getting or experiencing everything you want now?  We live in a society where instant gratification for many of our desires is easy to obtain.  But how does a person find lasting satisfaction?  Don’t miss today’s program.
