President, Wisconsin Family Action & Wisconsin Family Council
Founded in 2006, Wisconsin Family Action exists to inform Wisconsin citizens about pro-family legislative and cultural issues, involve Wisconsin citizens in activities that strengthen the family, prepare Wisconsin citizens for elections, as the law provides, and advocate in the state legislature on cultural and legislative issues that affect the family. WFA advances Judeo-Christian principles and values in Wisconsin by strengthening, preserving, and promoting marriage, family, life and liberty.
In our first segment today, we are joined by Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss how Christian parents can prepare their children for a godless school system and culture, and how the church can better equip youth for the challenges they will face in education and adult life.
Julaine shares some encouragement for Christians regarding the onslaught of godless agendas prevalent throughout culture, designed to draw children away from God and their parents. We also touch on the slow infiltration of Islam being taught in more and more schools, the LGBTQ agenda, and the rights of parents to ‘opt out’ their children.
James 1:22 states, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” We need to set better examples for today’s youth. If we are honest with ourselves, every one of us fails at practicing what we preach (what God’s word teaches) at times. But collective failure as a church or fellowship can eventually lead to dire consequences in the culture we are to shine the light of Christ upon.
In segment two, Dr. Jeffrey Johnson, author of a new book “Divine Mysteries: Concise and Thoughtful Ancient Biblical Wisdom“ joins us to discuss how the church and Christian community needs to change how we read and understand the Bible.
Mr. Johnson is founder and President of Israel Today Ministries which has helped thousands of Israeli children and holocaust survivors. He has a Masters degree from Moody Bible Institute and his Doctorate from Louisiana Baptist University.
From Amazon: “We Evangelicals struggle with mysteries. Answers are sought, meanings defined, and theology put in nice, neat boxes for clarification, or simply to justify our denominational notions. As Augustine notes, we are talking about God, after all. Why is it surprising that we do not understand? If we did understand, then it would not be God. Mysteries remind us that God is bigger than our preconceived ideas about his involvement with those created in his image. Divine Mysteries: Concise and Thoughtful Ancient Biblical Wisdom addresses some of these mysteries in a provocative and succinct manner.”
