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.

After the 9-11 attack on New York City, many Americans feared for their security, and hearts turned toward home. Every child craves the security of a father's embrace.

Uncontrollable anger is not just excess hormones. It's a problem of the spirit, only solvable in the spiritual realm. Running life's race is hard enough without being sidelined by fits of rage. The way out begins with admitting our problem, rejoicing in God's acceptance, and then forgiving others. Today: final lessons on handling rage the right way. Please listen with us.

Some people think you can get rid of anger by hitting something inanimate, and "letting off some steam." Trouble is: this doesn't work. Modern pop psychology is no match for the Bible in pinpointing the source of rage, or how to control the inappropriate anger all of us experience from time to time. Today: we learn more about anger and how to handle it. Now listen with us.

It's like an iceberg. Hidden below many a person's calm surface is a huge mass of rage which can burst forth at any time. No one can win in the race of life when he or she is tripped up by fits of inappropriate anger. Today: we uncover the unpleasant truth that the roots of rage lie within each of our hearts. What to do about it? To find out, listen with us.

We've all seen it: people out of control with anger. They drive dangerously. They start fights. But where does this rage come from? Winning in life's race means getting rage under control. Today: we probe the source of a destructive emotion, and point the way out of living with habitual anger. If you're driving, watch out for the other guy's "road rage," and for now, please listen with us.

We all know about the curse of shame: the guilt, the heavy emotional load. But what about the cure? Is there one? Yes, you can win in the race of life. You can win over shame. Today: you're about to hear a powerful teaching on how to get rid of shame for good, and live in the freedom of having a clear conscience. Please listen with us.

We've all experienced the painful emotion of shame: either because we've done wrong, or, because wrongs have been done to us. And sadly, some homes are based on shame. Today, we'll learn about shame's consequences, and then look to the Bible to find God's cure for shame. Do you know anyone cursed by shame? If so, please listen with us.
