Tina Marie Griffin: Christian Parents, Please Protect Your Kids!

Most of us know and understand the fact that too much screen time can affect our lives. Some would say screens are frying our brains, but we won’t go that far. Media affects us emotionally as well, to the point some people simply have to unplug for a while. Kids need to do this even more so as they are forming life habits – including a worldview – and social media and technology does affect their young minds and behavior.

All parents must go the extra mile and take this very seriously. We catch up with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin to talk about the dangers of social media and today’s ‘accepted’ forms of entertainment.

Linda Harvey: Sexual Corruption in Education and Culture

Our culture is in a state of chaos. From young children being taught they can be whatever gender they choose, to adults being too busy or overwhelmed to deal with the onslaught of propaganda against Christians, biblical values, and religious freedom; something must change before it’s too late.

Linda Harvey writes: “Truth is critical to a dying patient, and America is gravely ill. All that can save her is all that has ever been able to save her–the blood of Jesus Christ. But when will comfortable Christians proclaim this truth to the nation? What will it take for the church to return to its first love?

Breaking: Kanye West is human! Yes he is apparently a new convert to Christianity. Yes he seems to be bearing some fruit for the kingdom of God. Yes, he was a blasphemer, idolater, self-worshiper. Yes, he has a long way to go.

But we’ve heard from pastors, celebrities, ministry leaders, and fans. We’ve heard many good reports about the sincerity and boldness of Kanye’s faith in Christ and enthusiasm for the gospel.

Bottom line: let’s pray for his growth and maturity, and watch with cautious optimism.

Headlines; the Insanity of a Confused Culture

Today, David and Crash catch up with some recent news stories that sadly reflect the moral decay of American society. But we need to be reminded that Jesus is Lord and God and He is our unshakable hope in times of cultural chaos. There’s ‘nothing new under the sun’ and God is still sovereign.
