When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

Like the serpent that beguiled Eve, the devil's substitutes for God look good...very good. That's why the occult is so popular..... ....but the occult's teachings are the doctrines of demons...doctrines that bring death rather than life. These are doctrines Christians must avoid like the plague they really are. Today: what those doctrines teach, and why they are so dangerous. Please stay with us.

Satan has many disguises, and he'll do anything to draw our attention away from God. That's why the occult is so prevalent. These days, many people believe more in ghosts than in the living God. We build buildings without thirteenth floors and worry about black cats. Today: we'll expose these superstitions for what they really are: Satanic deceptions. Please stay with us.

The occult: more than Ouija boards. It's the kids who shoot up high schools, and each other. It's a trap we must avoid..... Our culture is tuned to the frequency of occult phenomena like never before. Behind the entertaining face of horoscopes lies the grim visage of demonic powers. Today: how the committed Christian should treat this form of deception. Stay with us.

We've got a hundred cable channels, 22 theater screens, DVDs, the Internet, and Facebook. Hey...who needs more? Today's Christians are awash in a sea of pleasures. We've got time for our plasma TV's and surround-sound movies, but do we have time for God? On this broadcast: we'll all hear a challenge to get our priorities straight. Please stay with us.

Our culture says, "If it feels good, do it." So...does having a desire mean it's always OK to satisfy it? .......no...you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater because you feel like it. While we all have desires, the Christian satisfies those desires in godly ways. Today: how to live for Christ in a world that's focused on pleasures. Please stay with us.

The TV commercial once said: "You only go around once in life. Grab all the gusto you can." That's not a bad idea. .......but the gusto you should grab is probably not what most people have in mind. A lot of Christians are falling victim to the mad dash for self-fulfillment. Today: you'll hear a challenge to a pleasure-mad culture that's infecting the church. Stay with us.

No one involved in sexual promiscuity really wants to be there. They are trapped, looking desperately for a way out.... It's said that all of Satan's apples have worms...and too many Christians have bitten into casual sex. But God has given us a way out of the lifestyle of so-called sexual freedom. Today: words of hope from the Bible for those caught in the web of sexual sin.
November 5, 2009
If we could see the scars we'll bear when we break God's laws on sexual behavior, we'd never break them in the first place...... .......God designed our greatest sexual fulfillment to be in a covenant marriage relationship, not in a succession of one-night stands. Casual sex leaves behind some not-so-casual memories...memories that create bondage. Today: the myth of sexual freedom.
November 4, 2009
God intended marriage to be permanent. But our culture says marriages can be broken when a better deal comes along...... .......however, that better deal carries with it some heavy baggage: the psychological burden of multiple sexual bonds, and the fragmented families left behind. Today: more on the sexual revolution's dark side, and why God's design for marriage is the only one that works.
November 3, 2009
Watch prime-time TV for two hours. You'll conclude that extramarital sex and divorce are choices we can freely make...... .......yes, we're free all right...free to ruin our lives and ruin the lives of others. The sexual revolution has a dark side...and we'd better count the cost. Today: we'll take a frank look at freedom run amok...even among Christians. Please stay with us.
