John Lynch joined us on the broadcast recently to discuss depression. Almost 7% of the population in America suffer from depression. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among teens. John speaks to the power of the gospel to set people free from depression. John says "for some it's temporary, for some it's intermittent, for some it's the result of chronic pain, for some it's the result of bad theology, for many there is no apparent basis for depression". As long as hope is alive, we can continue to move forward. But, without hope, the darkness envelops us. Believers don't have to be afraid of this issue, but to recognize that you are adored by God, He is not ashamed or frustrated. The God of all grace, He will himself will perfect and confirm and strengthen and establish you. What a promise that is!

Bob begins this edition with a discussion on anxiety and depression. What we think controls how we feel. Let the truth of God's love and grace change how you think and you will see a change in how you feel. Self-pity makes us vulnerable to the things of the world. There is a path to peace and it rests in the person of Jesus Christ. Edson asks for clarification on 1 Corinthians 15:29, the great resurrection chapter. Is there a baptism on behalf of the dead? Esha asks how to know if what I am thinking is an answer from God or just my human thoughts? Ken from Georgia asks about the book of James. Is James 4:8 speaking to believers or unbelievers? The key is to realize that the word "sinner" is not used for a child of God. Believers are called "saints".
