I hope you’ve had a blessed week since last we met on this site. As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are blessed above all others. Still it’s interesting that in Texas we’ve gone from the catastrophe of flooding rains in the spring to an oppressive heat wave, in progress now for weeks! But we won’t complain … much. LOL!
Okay, let’s get to it…
Usually, when all is quiet on the home front, which it seems to be at the moment, we tend to be content to wait and watch for the next big thing. But in this case, that “big thing” was the vote a few days ago on Senator Rand Paul’s bill proposing to defund Planned Parenthood.
With the winds that have been blowing in the halls of congress for quite some time, the defeat of that bill comes as no surprise. There are 53 people in the Senate who are callously indifferent to the killing of the unborn and the newly-born, and the “harvesting” of their organs for sale. I have to wonder, “why”?
I’m pretty sure the answer is crystalized in Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s book about Watergate. The phrase is, “follow the money”. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs (1 Timothy 6:10, NASB).
If there were no incentive to keep Planned Parenthood funded, what would be the motivation for a dissenting vote? I wonder also how many of those 53 ever HAD the faith to “wander away” from.
This week we have had some outstanding phone calls and commentary, not the least of which was Bob Christopher’s presentation of the gospel of Christ Jesus at the close of Monday’s broadcast.
We have recently started a weekend edition of Basic Gospel. Each week, I have the opportunity to go back into previous weeks’ calls and eMail questions and select the best of the best to include in this brand new program.
Currently, Basic Gospel Weekend Edition has a limited number of affiliate stations carrying it. However, that will change with time.
At some near-future date, we will create a directory of stations carrying this new program, and the airtime for each. Since it is a pre-recorded program, air times will vary from station to station.
In the meantime, you can access each week’s program by visiting the program web site: basicgospel.net/weekend.
As you probably know, Andrew Farley joins us on a weekly basis on Basic Gospel. When you get Andrew and Bob Christopher together … you never know what you might hear. Some very interesting observations come out during our conversations before and after the broadcast.
Recently, however, Andrew was addressing an assertion by a caller on the air who said, “I am a firm believer that we still have to obey the commandments (brought down off Mt. Sinai)” as a part of the Christian life. To which Andrew responded, “Flirting with Moses is cheating on Jesus. And that’s a big deal.”
Alicia — “This book is inspiring, exciting and a fabulous read for all yearning or hungry for more of God’s truth. A page turner from beginning to end. One book to keep and use as a guide when speaking or revealing truth to anyone willing to listen.”
See you next week on Inside the Studio,
