Navigating the news with your family

English: Looking south from Top of the Rock, N...

When we talk about the changing times we are in, the whole world is noticing that something is happening, and we need to be prepared for just about anything.  How are we equipping our families to navigate the economic, cultural and safety concerns that we hear about in the headlines daily? While some approach these events with great anxiety and fear, others see these events as an opportunity to share our faith.

We’re going to cover some of those headlines today and get your thoughts on what you talk about around the table with your family, and how we can spiritually prepare to be encouraged in these uncertain times. A little later we’re going to share an article titled, Christians mystically encountering God, about how the New Age is disguising itself as legitimate Christian spiritual practices.

Joining us for this discussion in the first segment is author Scott Alan Buss. His many books include,Fire Breathing Christians: The Common Believer’s Call to Reformation, Revival, and Revolution and “Apathetic Christianity: The Zombie Religion of American Churchianity.” He has two new projects soon to be released: “The America Idol – How Christ-less Patriotism Destroys a Nation,” and, “Suprahero – Jesus as the Source of Superheroes.” Check out Scott’s blog here.

    I tell my daughters to keep reading there Bibles. We need too look to God only. God will see us through each and every situation.
    Nothing matters to me in life anymore. Church doesn't matter to me anymore. Jobs don't matter to me anymore. Nothing matters to me anymore. If I don't keep my family on the straight and narrow and lead them like the Lord wants me to lead my family then I will have to answer to God for the things I have done. I look to God each and every day to lead, guide, and direct me and my family.

    J the Church is the body of Christ of which we are all a part if we are born again. You need other men to come along side of you, to hold you accountable to God's holy standard and to help you stay grounded in the truth which is His word. We men are not Islands if we were where would be the need for the body. But Christ in His wisdom has made us a body. There is but one. We are the flesh and bone of Christ, if we bear about the dying of the Lord Jesus in our flesh so that the life of Jesus may abound in us.

    It is impossible to be obedient to Christ in excluding yourself from other believers in an act of your own will. How can we lay down our lives for the sake of one another, or do any of the other one anothers we are commanded to perform, born out of a heart of gratitude for what Christ has done for us if we seperate ourselves from other believers.

    Great, you love those who love you. What benifit is that to you? Even the sinners who know not Christ do that. Be willing to suffer for the sake of Christ even if it comes from the hand of so called brothers and sisters for to this we are all called. How else can you learn to bear with one another if we only have surrounded ourselves by those who have the same thought, the same idea. How can you sharpen your understanding without friction?

    Yes there must be contensions so that those who are approved of God may be made known for they will not return evil for evil, rather they will seek to overcome evil by good.

    1 Peter 2:19-25 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled , reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we , being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

    I pray J you find fellowship a nessesary thing. May the Lord of Hosts, Christ Jesus bring you into His body that you may bring great Glory to God in bearing much fruit, bron out of a grateful heart. May the Great Sheperd of our souls give you peace.

    Amen!

    Mr. Davis,
    It's too bad I don't know who you are to carry on this conversation in private. Yes I get what you are saying. We men need each other to hold one another accountable. I get that. But men can lead us astray where God will never leave us or forsake us.
    With everything that has happened in the last few years the Lord wants me too look for him in everything I do. Not to man or to the church.
    All my life I've looked to man or to the church for answers. God is telling me he will supply all my needs and be with me each and every day.
