Luis Palau Tribute: A Biblical Look at the Family - II

March 30, 2021

In honor of the late evangelist Luis Palau, who went home to Heaven earlier this month, Dr. James Dobson continues his conversation with Dr. Palau, in which they offer biblical advice for wives in loveless marriages. Isaiah 54:5 says, “Your Maker is your husband—the Lord Almighty is his name.” God has not called us to be happy but rather obedient, so we must remain faithful in prayer and see what the Lord will do.

The late evangelist Luis Palau, who has been called “the Billy Graham of Latin America,” went to be with the Lord on March 11 of this year. On today’s broadcast, Dr. James Dobson opens with a special tribute to the life work and impact of Dr. Palau, and then plays a classic interview they had previously recorded together. It was in that conversation that Dr. Palau presciently warned America against taking a low view of Scripture and following in the tragic footsteps of Britain and Latin America, with their skyrocketing illegitimacy rates and rampant sexual immorality. He challenged Christian men to open God’s Word daily and pray with their wives.

The late Chuck Colson, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon and founder of Prison Fellowship, was often asked, “How can I grow closer to God?” Chuck’s answer was simple. As Jeremiah 22:16 records, when believers defend the cause of the poor and needy, that’s how we can come to know God intimately. As you are serving the powerless, you will experience the power of God.

The late Chuck Colson, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon, knew firsthand what it meant to have a problem with abusing power. But after he was sent to prison, he was no longer enamored by “earthly kings.” Colson’s life was radically transformed by “the power of the King of Kings living in us and the eternal values of God, which are so transcendent.”

All too often, the number of “likes” received on Instagram is what determines a teen’s self-worth. It’s no wonder then, that 38% of young girls in the U.S. today have a diagnosable anxiety disorder. Patti Garibay, founder of American Heritage Girls (AHG), a Christian scout-type leadership development program, urges parents to prioritize their daughters’ faith formation ahead of academics or athletics. She cites research from George Barna (The Barna Group), showing that when a child participates in faith-centered activities such as AHG in addition to regularly attending church, they are 75% more likely to carry their Christian faith into adulthood.

With a disregard for absolute truth in today’s culture, it has become essential that Christian families spend consistent time immersed in God’s Word. Pastor Michael Youssef, author of Hope for This Present Crisis, grew up under a socialist dictatorship and yearned to one day breathe America’s “air of freedom” inspired by its Christian heritage. Now a U.S. citizen, he’s become increasingly alarmed by the radical socialist agenda being taught in classrooms, and Christians being denied free speech.

Because mainstream America is no longer committed to biblical truth, our society is unraveling before our eyes. From our embrace of sexual immorality to socialistic policies, the ripple effect is spreading. World-renowned pastor, Dr. Michael Youssef, author of Hope for This Present Crisis, urges pastors to return to an orthodox, biblical Christianity. He explains that a watered-down gospel preached from fear-filled pulpits leads to parishioners willing to conform to a sin-stained world.

When “menopausal misery” hits, women can experience hot flashes, headaches, anxiety and sometimes even deep depression. In this part 2 discussion, the late author Jean Lush explains that as a woman’s menstrual cycle ceases, her body changes and she will often lack energy, be on edge, and can have frequent, exhausting mood changes. Lush counsels husbands to be extra supportive during this time, and tells women they can look forward to greater energy on the other side.
