Why Does Hospitality Matter?

Webster defines hospitality as:

"...the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers."

God's Word says ...

"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."  (Heb. 13:2)

With this in mind, it seems we'd want to extend kindness whenever possible.  Just think of what would happen if we did ... and without any thoughts about our own agenda.  That's exactly what one pastor and his wife did several years ago that led one woman--a most unlikely convert--on her journey to discovering, obeying, and eventually understanding God's ...

The Colson Center presents "A National Briefing on Religious Liberty"

We're starting to see the impact that same-sex marriage has on religious freedom, as reported in a recent court case where the First Amendment did not protect a Christian photographer who declined to take pictures of a same-sex commitment ceremony.  There is increasing concern that anti-discrimination laws and same-sex marriage will overturn the rights of conscience and religious liberty.

Out of a desire to keep your listeners informed about this issue, the Colson Center is sponsoring a special event at the Truth for a New Generation Conference which convenes later this month.  By partnering together with American Family Radio ...

Recently Jim reiterated:  If we're going ...

Celebrating Grandparents!

Grandparent's DayWhat a special gift it is to be a grandparent, or to have grandparents!  On Sunday September 8th we honor grandparents everywhere, as we celebrate Grandparents Day! 

Emilie Barnes (Keep It Simple), and her husband Bob, are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren!   They embrace the important role of grandparents, and want to encourage other grandparents, to share their faith, life, and love with their grandchildren. 

Emilie feels that no one can quite do for children what grandparents do.  They give unconditional love, a heritage of memories, and hopefully, a legacy of faith. 

Leading up to Grandparent's Day, Emilie ...

Back to School - Common Core Concerns

I think I'm in denial.  My kids start school in about ten days and we still have school shopping to do.  Usually at this time of year, I have a spring in my step about sending the kids off to school, but I'm not feeling it yet.  Maybe it's because we've enjoyed a really fun summer together or maybe it's because I'm getting anxious about a new school schedule with my oldest starting Junior High.  There are other concerns, too.

With our kids attending public school in California, our state is adopting the new ...

Could I EVER Lose My Salvation?


There's a question many believers have wondered about, even struggled with.  Here are a few others:

  • When a sinner is saved, who does the choosing - does God choose the sinner, or the sinner choose God? 
  • Did Christ die for the sins of the entire world, or just for the people He saves?
  • Does everyone have a chance to be saved from hell? 


Young Man Reading BibleFollowing Labor Day on "Grace to You®," John MacArthur begins a month-long study that provides practical answers to these questsions we trust your listeners are asking too.  Make sure they tune in to learn more about ...
