A recent study shows that more and more families hosting Thanksgiving Dinner have basically established a “No Politics, No Religion” restriction on discussions as the family gathers for Thanksgiving. Certainly the politics of the day has us deeply divided as a nation; and we know that the gospel is also divisive and offensive to those who are perishing. So how do we honor the unspoken rules or requests of our Thanksgiving hosts to not get into contentious debates, but still manage to share the only eternal hope for mankind?
Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss this, and we will also look at why so many Christians and church leaders are afraid to stand up for religious freedom these days. In the third segment, we also address the increasing sexual misconduct charges on politicians and Hollywood celebrities, as well as the glaring double standard depending on whether the accused is a Democrat or Republican.
Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.James 3:13-18
Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession; 2 He was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was in all His house.Hebrews 3:1-2
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, Hebrews 1:1-3
Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a high priest, who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 2 a minister in the sanctuary and in the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.Hebrews 8:1-2
