LISTEN NOW: John, Pat and Chris ask the question; are you really a Christian? They continue to share that in the Message bible Romans 2:28 says “It’s the mark of God on your heart, not of a knife on your skin that makes a Jew. They continue to say that just because someone calls themselves a Christian doesn’t mean they are one. Many people today identify themselves as being a Christian. In fact, Gallup Polls says that 77% of Americans identify themselves as being a Christian. If that was true that would mean that based upon that percentage there would be 245 million Christians living in the United States and if that was the case America would not be in the place that it is today. So this begs the question; what is a Christian. They continue to discuss some ideas and circumstances as they answer this question. They encourage us to follow what the Bible teaches and that is to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith; to perform a self –examination, leading to an investigation which produces an evaluation. They remind us that it is better to examine ourselves while we still can and that it is not too late.
Pro-life Ad Rejected; Too Controversial to run in 3 major U.S. newspapers?
John, Pat and Chris discuss how a new pro-life ad was allegedly refused to be run by three major newspapers because they called the ad too controversial. The ad shows a wide open hand holding a preborn 20 to 24 week old baby. They discuss how amazing it is that other things that are printed are not considered controversial. The word is getting out and so are the images that a baby is a baby and not a tissue. They also continue to discuss how the truth and more light is continuing to break through as they share about a Bill, Parental Notice Act, in Illinois that was passed back in 1995 which is now taking effect requires that a parent or guardian would have to be notified at least 48 hours before an abortion is performed on a minor. They share how this in the best interest of the unborn child as well as the minor as she will have to live out the consequences of whatever decision she makes.
