On Today’s edition of Radical Grace Radio, Christian dropouts are returning, Suntrust delists the Benham Brother, Trail Life is rising, a Mega Church Pastor admits to lying about Abuse, and a Sudanese Christian is to be put to death for Apostasy.
Also, I got another Jesus Prayer Rug in the Mail. It’s a “Holy Spirit Letter”, it says. Find out more inside.
Boka Haram, it turns out, mean “Western Education is Sin”. So, why is Baka Haram using Western Education in their Terrorist Activities? Also, Flip it Forward gets flipped out the door, Heaven is more real than Son of God, the Supreme Courts says it’s okay to pray, and a gay divorcee is glad gays are just like other divorcees. Seriously, he is. That and it’s Good Shepherd Sunday.
On Christian Evangelism and Perserverance.
Bill Marallo of Adoptions Services joins us to talk about “re-parenting”, and we of course talk about in terms of God re-parenting us. A lot of people think of “sanctification” in a lot of weird ways, but try listening to this program for a better perspective.
Do Christians sometimes Practice Magic in God’s name? Here’s the deal. Martin Luther, in his Small Catechism, said concerning the second commandment:
We should fear and love God that we may not curse, swear, use witchcraft, lie, or deceive by His name, but call upon it in every trouble, pray, praise, and give thanks.
Now, think about this for a second. How many ways are there to “Use Witchcraft” in God’s name? What if the “witchcraft” is cleverly cloaked in evangelical rituals like word/faith prayers that call upon power to manifest changes in reality? What if it were people cursing each other by misusing Jesus’ teaching on “cursing the fig tree” in Matthew 21:18? How about swearing by God’s name while telling a lie? How about when people try to buy power with their tithes? How about when people call upon “Prophets” of our age to divine the future for us like King Saul did with the witch of Endor in 1st Samuel 28? These seem crass, but they are happening in Churches all around Florida and the Space Coast.
In this edition of Radical Grace Radio we analyze an incident that occurred in Dearborne Mich, where a group of Christians were stoned by Muslims… or so the story goes. But more importantly we examine a situation where a Synagogue leader named Jairus has a problem: His daughter is dying and Jesus is standing around listening to a long drawn out story about blood and doctors.
